National Grandparents Day 2021

Send your grandparents a loving gift

I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of us love our grandparents. They are the matriarchs and patriarchs of our families, and the ones we often look up to when we are young. They also are the ones that probably did more than their fair share of looking after us during the holidays or when our parents had to do adult stuff. So, it’s only right that we celebrate them on the 3rd of October 2021 – National Grandparents Day.

It’s a chance to put your grandparents in the limelight and show them how much they mean to you. And we think it’s safe to say that most grandparents enjoy an afternoon treat with a bit of cake and a lovely cup of tea or coffee. We have a wonderful selection of cakes that we’re sure your grandparents would love to receive as an unexpected gift:

Traditional Whole Cakes

Classics always go down well with Grandparents and we have lots of traditional cake flavours to choose from:

Victoria Sponge Cake – Probably the most traditional cake we can think of. 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.

Chocolate Cake – Luxurious and rich chocolate, flour and free range eggs create a moist and indulgent Sponge. English butter and chocolate create the ultimate chocolate buttercream and milk chocolate flakes decorate the top. A chocaholics dream!

Lemon Drizzle Sponge – 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.

Coffee Cake – The sponge is made with quality coffee and free range eggs creating a velvety and light coffee flavoured cake. Coffee is also whipped in to the buttercream and delicious chocolate coffee beans sit on top. A coffee lovers dream...

Carrot Cake – Grated carrot, cinnamon, walnuts, plump sultanas, free range eggs, and a hint of nutmeg make up this rich and juicy sponge. Naturally flavoured vanilla buttercream with crunch walnut pieces on top.

If your grandparents prefer cakes that are a bit different there are also lots of less traditional flavours available too.

Baby Sponge Cakes

If you’re not sure that they will manage a whole cake, why not buy them some baby sponge cakes instead. 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 vegan 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.

Sponge offer next day delivery on our cakes all over the UK, when you order by 2pm. So, if you can’t be with your grandparents in person and give it to them directly, we will ensure that your cakes and brownies are delivered safely and securely straight to your front door. Our Sponge cake delivery service is second to none with our robust designed packaging that keeps your order safe in transit.
