International Friendship Day

Celebrate your special friendships on the 30th July 2022

Friendships are wonderful things, and they are not restricted to your location, friends can be located all over the country and all over the world. The internet allows us to easily maintain friendships more so than ever, although some people do still stay in touch the old-fashioned way through phone calls and letters.

And we form friendships in the weirdest places and for the oddest reason sometimes. Whether you’ve known your friends for a life-time or they’re relatively new friendships that have formed, sometimes there are just those people you click with and they end up meaning the world to us.

The International Day of Friendship was created to build bridges between countries, cultures and individuals, to help inspire peace efforts. It’s interesting to think that one of the most natural things that many of us do, create friendships, could aid in some small way to some form of peace.

But we also believe that the 30th of July 2022 is a reason to celebrate those friendships too. Letting your best friend know just how much they mean to you, even in a small way will make their day and help to strengthen your bond to one another.

Sending them a little gift is a great way to make them smile on International Friendship Day and we have the perfect gift to send through the post to your friends in the UK.

Cake Cards

Cake cards are a unique gift that you can send through the post to brighten up someone’s day for any occasion. They consist of a card and a choice of one or two slices of yummy cake, all packaged together in a specially designed A5 box. Our Letterbox cake has been specifically designed this way to fit through a standard size letterbox, allowing us to send these unique gift cakes by post!

When you buy one of our Cake Card Letterbox cakes, we package it in a way to ensure that it survives the drop from the letterbox to the floor, the cake slices stay in perfect condition. Your cake is securely packaged in its bespoke cake box. Sending cakes in a card by post is a new and innovative creation, available from Sponge.

The great thing about the Cake Cards is the surprise. As it doesn't require a signature, your postman can simply slip it through the letterbox with the rest of your post and the recipient doesn’t have to be in for the delivery. What a fantastic surprise for them, as they will have no idea you have sent them a special personalised card with cake inside by post!

There are lots of personalisation options too, with extra items to create the perfect gift. You can also add a special message inside the Cake Card so that it's 100% personal to the recipient.

We have lots of card designs to choose from, no matter what your friend loves, we’re sure you’ll find a card that’s perfect for them.

Depending on the delivery date you have selected, orders will usually be despatched two days prior to your delivery date. You can pre-order for a future date / special occasion. We always recommend selecting a delivery date a day earlier than intended, just in case of any unforeseen issues.

All cake card orders are posted out on Royal Mail 48 hour tracked service. We will provide a tracking number so you can see where your order has got to. Royal Mail aims to deliver 96% of tracked items on time, including Saturdays, although this is not a guaranteed service.

Once you have placed your order, we will keep you updated via email with a confirmation of your purchase, delivery details, and when your card is on its way.
