And, why not give them an extra treat this summer holiday with some tasty treats to say well done on working so hard during the school year. We have lots of goodies available that they will enjoy:

Whole Cakes

If you’re seeing a bunch of family members while you’re on holiday why not get a whole cake for you all to share. We have plenty of cakes available as Sponges for 8 and Sponges for 16 – here are some of the wonderful cake flavours available:

Strawberries & Cream Cake – A double-layered summer beauty! A fluffy and soft vanilla sponge sandwiched together with sweet strawberry buttercream and drizzled with white chocolate on top. Enjoy with a glass of fizz on a hot sunny day or pair with a warming cuppa for those drizzly English summer days!

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.

Lemon Drizzle Cake – A lemon drizzle cake with a sweet citrus sponge made with lemon oil & bound together with lashings of lemon buttercream. The sponge is infused with natural lemon oil and made with free range eggs to create a light and fluffy citrus cake. Natural lemon oil is also used in the buttercream and white chocolate is drizzled on top.

Rocky Road Cake – A rocky road cake with a marbled chocolate sponge and chocolate butter cream. Naturally flavoured vanilla sponge and delicious chocolate sponge are swirled together creating an indulgent marbled sponge. English butter and chocolate create a smooth buttercream, with marshmallows and crispy chocolate pearls on top.

Victoria Sponge Cake – A Victoria sponge cake with a light fluffy vanilla sponge, raspberry jam, and vanilla buttercream. 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.

None of those tickle your fancy? Don’t worry there are plenty of other flavours to choose from.

Baby Sponge Cakes

Cute baby versions of our whole sponge cakes - these mini cakes are the perfect size to have with a cuppa. We have over 15 flavours to choose from including gluten free and some limited edition flavours too. Available in packs of 4, 8, 16, 40, 80 or 120. Our packs of 4 and 8 are gift wrapped for gifting, and our larger packs of 16, 40, 80 and 120 are for parties and arrive unwrapped in boxes. These are simply perfect as small treats for the kids over the summer and you can even freeze them so you can spread the treats out, just take them out of the freezer and leave them in a nice cosy spot and once the icing is soft and the cake is at room temperature, it’s ready to enjoy!
