Cakes that aren’t just ‘good’, they’re Damn Fine!

Damn Fine Cakes is an artisan bakery in the heart of Saltaire, West Yorkshire, making bespoke cakes for every occasion and specialising in painted designs.

Whether it’s a first birthday, first anniversary or your wedding cake to cut before that first dance, a Damn Fine Cake adds a ‘wow’ factor to any celebration.

Each cake is a one off, designed and personalised to your exact requirements; hand crafted with a flawless finish and attention to detail.

They taste Damn Fine too!

I would recommend Damn Fine Cakes for anyone who was looking for something different and that will be a talking point.

About Me

I’m Katy and I’m a huge fan of cake and all things cakey.

I have baked for as long as I can remember and still use the carrot cake recipe today that I discovered as a teenager!

I began my working life in design and print, before moving on to work in buying and product development for home interior products, marketing and communications. 

As many other cake makers do, I found that my enjoyment of creating birthday cakes for my children sparked an interest that borders on obsession in baking and decorating personalised cakes. After several years making for family and friends, with an ever increasing number of recommendations and enquiries, I established Damn Fine Cakes.

Making celebration cakes allows me to combine my expertise in understanding and interpreting customer needs with my imagination and creativity. I LOVE designing and creating personalised cakes - from honing my recipes for the best tasting cakes to planning out the design and colour schemes, and bringing ideas to life. And I am a big believer in providing exceptional (nay Damn Fine!) customer service.

I work from my registered kitchen, which has a 5* hygiene rating, in the heart of Saltaire village.
