Where the Ribbon Ends



Where the Ribbon Ends was started by Gayle Burdon, now Gayle Hussan, what had started as a hobby is now a multi-award winning wedding cake business.  In 2014 Gayle returned home to Jervaulx.  With a stunning display within the Tearooms, in 2019 we diversified part of the Tearooms to create a studio for us to carrying on expanding our range, from desert tables, semi naked cakes, hand painted cakes and sugar flowers.

Walking past a cake shop in York, Gayle saw an evening class advertised and thought it would be a great hobby, but once she started, she couldn’t stop. Constantly searching for fresh ideas and practising, she was soon asked to create a wedding cake for a friend. From then on it became a full time hobby and has developed into a passion.

With years of experience, Gayle continues to create luxury, contemporary and incredibly detailed cakes, take a look at Where the Ribbon Ends website for more information and photos.  

All cakes baked by Gayle’s sister, Anna, who has baked for the Tearooms for over 10 years.  We have a delicious selection of cakes, each tier flavour can be different.  From the refreshing fresh raspberry and white chocolate to carrot and coconut.  Mum, Carol, has also worked on a number of GF DF and vegan options.

We have a range of desserts to create full dessert tables to individual favours.  Macaroons or biscuits which can be hand painted, even adding your guests names to create a favour and place name. 

In 2019, we won the wedding industry national award for best cake maker and decorator.  We were blown away as the judging consistited of reviews from previous couples, this feedback meant the world to us. In 2020, we won again nationally for the best cake maker and decorator.
