National Siblings Day 2021

Find a great gift to send to your siblings this year

Siblings tend to know us better than anyone, whether you have brothers, sisters or both, our siblings can usually relate to us on another level. There is a special day that is set aside to show our appreciation to them, and this year National Siblings Day falls on 10th April 2021. So, if you’re looking for a special gift to send to your sibling for this special day, or for a special occasion we have some great options that they will love.

Whole Cakes

Spoil them and show them your appreciation with one of our delicious whole cakes, we spend a lot of time working on our recipes so that they are perfect, and we have a lot of flavour options to choose from, here are some of the flavours we have available:

Victoria Sponge Cake – Free range eggs, flour and natural vanilla flavouring creates our award-winning light and fluffy Victoria Sponge. The buttercream is made from English butter and natural vanilla flavouring which is complemented perfectly with quality raspberry jam.

Cookies and Cream Cake – Our chocolate sponge contains flour, free range eggs and indulgent chocolate. English butter and natural vanilla flavouring make a wonderfully thick and creamy buttercream icing with delicious crushed Oreo's running through it.

Millionaires Cake – Half of the sponge is hand-made with natural vanilla flavouring and free range eggs and the other half is made with indulgent chocolate. Caramel and natural toffee flavouring create a luxurious buttercream. Pretty drizzled milk and white chocolate on the top.

Chocolate & Caramel Cake – This yummy sponge cake is flavoured with chocolate and caramel creating a marbled effect. It is sandwiched together with a generous double layer of buttercream - chocolate buttercream on the bottom and caramel buttercream on top. It is finished off with more chocolate buttercream on top, a gorgeous drizzle of chocolate, and a sprinkle of crushed salted butter pieces.

Speculoos Biscoff Cake – This limited edition Belgian-style biscoff cake is full of sugar and spice and all things nice! A comforting and warming sponge with a deep caramel flavour and hints of cinnamon and other spices. The sponge is held together with a thick layer of buttercream which is infused with biscoff - a caramelised biscuit spread. More of the biscoff buttercream is spread over the top and then covered with a generous biscoff crumb. This Speculoos Biscoff Cake is not one to be missed!

We have plenty of flavours to choose from in our whole cakes range, we also have a great range of gluten free and vegan cakes, so everyone is able to find the perfect cake to send to their sibling.


Along with our delicious whole cakes we also have a fabulous range or brownies to send to your loved ones:

Speculoos Biscoff Brownies - Our limited edition Speculoos Brownie is full of sugar and spice and all things nice! A delicious chocolate brownie - gloriously gooey in the middle with melted triple chocolate chunks running throughout, topped with a generous layer of biscoff spread and then covered with a crunchy biscoff crumb. Chocolate and biscoff work perfectly together giving the chocolate brownies a dark caramel flavour with hints of cinnamon and other spices. Pure bliss.

Triple Chocolate Brownies – Our classic Triple Chocolate Brownie is gloriously gooey in the middle with melted triple chocolate chunks running throughout. It is encased with a crunchy top and decorated with a triple chocolate drizzle. Pure. Chocolate. Heaven.

Raspberry & White Chocolate Brownies – These indulgent chocolate brownies are full of raspberry pieces and white chocolate chunks. They are topped with a raspberry and white chocolate drizzle and raspberry pieces.

Hazelnut Praline Brownies – This decadent and creamy Hazelnut Praline brownie is a nutella lover's dream! The rich and gooey chocolate brownie has hazelnut praline and roasted hazelnut pieces running through it. It is then topped with more hazelnut pieces and spun in deliciously dark chocolate.

Chocolate Orange Brownies – A classic and well loved combination of chocolate and orange make this brownie truly tempting! A gooey chocolate orange flavoured brownie with orange chocolate chunks dotted through the middle. Topped with a pretty white chocolate, dark chocolate and orange chocolate drizzle effect. The ultimate brownie for any Terry's Chocolate Orange lovers out there...

Four Sharing Brownie – The ultimate brownie sharing box! Four of our scrumptious and gooey brownies flavours in one - Triple Chocolate, Raspberry and White Chocolate, Chocolate Orange, and Hazelnut Praline Brownies.
