World Egg Day 2021

Celebrate eggs with a Sponge cake!

How do you like your eggs in the morning? We like ours in a cake! Eggs are useful in many ways and used in many different dishes. World Egg Day was established in Vienna in 1996 and it is observed on the second Friday in October each year (which is the 8th of October this year), to celebrate the power of the egg.

This year is actually the 25th anniversary of the event, so perhaps we should all take a moment to celebrate eggs, as often we can take them for granted. Big egg fans will always find a way to celebrate one of their favourite foods. Perhaps you’ll want to make your favourite egg-based dish, or even do a traditional easter activity and paint some eggs. We think a great way to enjoy and celebrate them is by having them in a cake.

We use quality free range eggs in our standard cakes, we truly believe they make a huge difference in quality, and we always get great results using them in our recipes. We also use them in our brownies too to create our fudgy delights. So, if you want an excuse to have some cake and celebrate eggs, why not get a delicious cake or brownie from Sponge.

The perfect rainbow birthday cake for any age, or a great cake to cheer up a loved one. Due to the number of layers, buttercream and coating it is very generous and will easily feed more than 8 people! Comes with a rainbow topper for decoration.

Biscoff Cake – A comforting and warming sponge with a deep caramel flavour and hints of cinnamon and other spices.
