Rebecca Severs

Owner, Cake Designer & Decorator

Bec set up the business in November 2015, after a love of baking grew into the desire to build a new career around her three children. The business has grown slowly but surely, and we were so excited to open our shop in Keighley in May 2023 - a real milestone.

Bec's specialisms are buttercream florals and sugar flowers as well as writing new recipes for cake flavours. She's also built and maintains our website and does most of our social media. Bec has three daughters and is married to Aidan who you'll sometimes see on the counter. She has a dog and a cat that she adores too!

Bec: "I love working alongside our amazing team and sometimes can't believe I get to do a job that I love this much. I still love the baking and decorating side of things but I also love running a business and all the joys and challenges that come with that!"

Debbie Henson

 

Baker & Cake Decorator

 

After making her own wedding cake as her first foray into baking, Debbie was bitten by the baking bug. With her extensive experience in retail, customer service, photography and running her own cake business for a number of years, she brings a lot to the Three Little Birds table.

 

Debbie specialises in working with buttercream cakes, drip cakes, buttercream piping, designing delicious new flavours for our products and overseeing our team customer service training. She's always a friendly face on our counter and brightens up our, and your, days!

 

In her spare time Debbie enjoys the theatre, especially feel good musicals and ballets. She also loves entertaining.

 

Debbie: "A happy family life is everything to me and being able to work alongside being a parent is invaluable to me, doing a job I love, maintaining my independence and learning new skills and meeting lots of lovely people along the way."

Megan Lawrence

Baker & Cake Decorator

With fantastic experience in pastry cheffing at the highest level, cake decorating, retail and customer service, Megan is a great asset to our team. Her ability to make anything out of carved cakes and fondant is amazing, from illusion fish and chip cakes to pheasants to cute unicorns and everything in between!

Megan also specialises in Lambeth piping which is very popular with our vintage-style heart and sheet cakes. In her spare time Megan enjoys spending time with her family, getting outside with the dog, meeting up with friends and "fighting off the mum bod" with workouts. 

 

Megan: "I like that in my job it's something different every week. It keeps each day exciting and fresh and full of new challenges!" 

Alysha Matwiejczyk

Baker & Cake Decorator

Alysha's in-depth experience in the industry as a pastry chef for a Michelin starred restaurant, as well as her background in art, means she brings a wealth of fresh ideas, delicious flavours, and organisational skills to our kitchen.

With front of house experience too, Alysha is also great at describing our cakes and macarons on the counter and helping our customers choose their treats.

Since arriving at the bakery, she's taken on the main role of macaron maker, baking batch after batch of these delicious little beauties.

Alysha: "Outside of work, most of my time is spent with my little girl and partner. When we get the chance, we love to go out and eat and also love hanging out and gaming with our friends... once our daughter's in bed!"
