Geeky wedding cakes from Debbie Gillespie Cake Design

Geeky wedding cake from Debbie Gillespie Cake Design

Debbie Gillespie Cake Design (formerly Farnley Fayre) was established in 2014 in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.  Comprising of just its founder, Debbie Gillespie, the company aims to provide unique and innovative wedding cake designs for creative couples.  

Inspiration for her designs are taken from her beautiful Yorkshire surroundings so woodland influences with natural textures and bold sugar florals feature heavily.   There is also a strong use of art and sculpture, using watercolour-style handpainting, modelling and different stacking techniques to build alternative design ideas. 

Stable Cottage Cakes

The garden may seem an unusual place to be at the heart of a business, but for Lucy's wedding cakes, it is where it all begins.  Lucy provides handcrafted quality vegan wedding cakes, but in an attempt to educate the everyday customer about animal welfare, she also provides wedding cakes with an unusual twist. The garden is home to Lucy's flock of chickens (all rescued ex-battery hens), and it is the fresh eggs laid by these hens that are essential to the quality of her non-vegan cakes.  “When the egg is fresher, the air stays in it when you whisk it up,” explains Lucy, “so this is a great selling point for couples, and allows me to teach them about the egg industry, and the price animals are paying for our current fast food attitude.”

Since I started my wedding cake business I soon came to realise that weddings are no longer about following rules on colour and traditions and are increasingly finding new and exciting ways to push the boundaries and wow the guests. This is why I absolutely love having my part in the industry because I find that pushing boundaries is so important when finding inspiration to create exciting new designs.

She’s been buying organic for over 15 years but has been baking cakes for a lot longer and so it was only natural to bring the two together as a business.

The Year of the Vintage Wedding Cake

The Year of the Vintage Wedding Cake

The wedding cake is possibly one of the most established elements of a wedding day. From choosing the cake maker, design and flavour choice, to the ritual of cutting the cake together, it is undoubtedly an essential part of culinary planning. Traditionally, the wedding cake takes the form of a tiered masterpiece covered in thick white fondant icing and perhaps a few fondant roses.

This year however, the vintage inspired wedding cake is set to be huge! Sammi-Jo Gascoyne, established chef and owner of Blushing Cook, gives us her thoughts on what we can expect to see in 2016.
