Thank You Teacher Gifts

Find the perfect present to thank teachers for all they’ve done

Teachers do a wonderful and often difficult job, educating and looking after our children. Even in tough times and difficult situations, they do all they can to make sure their students are safe and maintaining their educational progress. They need even more appreciation, as they have been working through arguably, one of the most stressful and complex situations any of us have experienced, making teaching even more challenging.

So, if you know a teacher who has gone above and beyond recently to support your child or children, then why not show them how grateful you are with a delicious gift. Whether you want to thank just one teacher or a whole team of teachers and teaching assistants, we’re sure you’ll be able to find a yummy gift they’ll really appreciate, at Sponge.

As an extra special gift to a teacher to thank you, why not treat your favourite teacher to a whole cake. There is a flavour for everyone in our standard cake range, we’re sure you’ll find a flavour they will simply adore.

Why not play it safe with a family favourite – Our award-winning Victoria Sponge Cake. The delicious light and fluffy sponge layers are made with free range eggs, flour and natural vanilla flavouring. The buttercream is made from English butter and natural vanilla flavouring which is complemented perfectly with quality raspberry jam.

If you know they love chocolate, why not pick our Chocolate Sponge Cake - A delicious and indulgent chocolate sponge which is sandwiched together with thick chocolate buttercream. On top, you will find a creamy white chocolate icing with a smattering of delicious milk chocolate flakes. It’s simply a chocoholics dream!

For an extra-special thank you, you could even order them our rainbow sponge! This is for those with a very sweet tooth. Our colourful rainbow cake is made up of four layers of light and fluffy vanilla sponge with three layers of deliciously sweet vanilla buttercream sandwiched between. Vanilla buttercream also covers the entire cake and it is then coated very generously in a cloud of white chocolate flakes.

If you know that they have special dietary requirements, we even have a range of gluten-free and vegan cake flavours too! They look and taste just as good as our standard sponge range, so even if you’re not sure and want to be on the safe side, we’re sure that they’ll love a flavour from any of our ranges. We even have our Sharing Sponges if you’re struggling to choose a flavour to send!

Our cakes come in Sponges for 8 & Sponges for 16 – and these are generous portions, so there will be plenty for them to enjoy with family, friends or colleagues.

Our baby Sponges are a great choice if you don’t want to send a whole cake and want to send individual portions instead, and they are individually wrapped making them ideal for sharing with colleagues. You can send 4, 8, 16, 40, 80 or even 120 Baby Sponges! You could thank the whole teaching staff at a school with these amazing mini cakes.
