Hi everyone, my name is Francesca and I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to my company website and tell you a little bit about myself. 

I live in Wiltshire with my wonderful husband Freddie. I fell in love with baking and decorating whilst in my first year at Sussex University studying Law. Since then I have found myself making cakes for every and any family occasion, and absolutely loving it! After finishing my degree in 2015 I decided to follow my dream and start up my cake company in 2016. 

ABOUT ME

Whilst avidly making cakes for family and friends for many years I decided to pursue my passion as a business, investing time and money in courses to improve and build upon my existing skills... after all there is always room for improvement!

In February 2016, I successfully completed a Professional Intensive Week of Cake Decorating Course at the renowned Squire Kitchen in Surrey and received my Core Foundation Master Certificate. Here we covered mediums such as Basic Sugarpaste, Marzipan, Royal Icing, Pastilage and how to create and assemble Sugarpaste Flowers. 

In July 2016 I attended a figure masterclass with Sweet Revolutions.

As a company owner, I've discovered the deliver to look for new opportunities and learn new things, and therefore have been a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild for just under two years where I attend monthly meetings to stay up to date with the cake world!

EXPERIENCE

The Gillespie Cake Company is now over 3 years old and running strong.
 Why call it The Gillespie Cake Company you may ask? Well, Gillespie is my mother’s maiden name and in having no brothers she and her sister were the end to the Gillespie line. My Grandma and Grandpa were also a huge part of my life growing up and although they are sadly no longer with us I wouldn’t be the person I am today without them. Therefore, I wanted to continue the Gillespie legacy and couldn't think of a better way to honour them all. So there you have it, that it is how The Gillespie Cake Company was born!
