Cheap Cakes

Find affordable cakes near you

Sometimes it can be a toss-up between quality and cost. No-one ever wants to have to compromise on quality, especially when it comes to gifts, so there should be affordable options to choose from. It’s very hard, especially at a time when the cost-of-living crisis is occurring, and people are choosing between eating and heating.

When it comes to birthdays, we still want to make an effort to make sure that loved ones get a cake on their special day. Now, we want to tell you that there are options out there for you to get cheap cakes; they won’t be as cheap as supermarket cakes, however you can be confident that they are better quality as they aren’t mass produced. When cakes are mass produced it is harder to keep the quality consistent, when cakes are made in smaller batches you can keep a closer eye on them to ensure they taste great and look good.

Sponge is committed to providing our customers with great options that are affordable for everyone, with cakes in different price ranges to suit your budgets and put a smile on a loved one's face even when times are tough.

Here are some of our cheap cake options:

Cheap Cake Gifts – If you’re looking for a foodie gift why not send them some cake? That way you know they definitely got to enjoy some cake for their special occasion. Our Baby Sponge boxes start from just £12.95, and you get a card included. They are available as a traditional pack (Victoria, Chocolate, Lemon, and Coffee), quirky pack (Carrot, Chocolate Orange, Sticky Toffee, and Red Velvet), 8 Baby Sponge Selection Box (both traditional and quirky sponges), gluten free packs (gluten free Victoria, Chocolate, Carrot, and Apple Crumble), vegan packs (vegan carrot and chocolate), and even choose your own packages.

Cheap Birthday Cakes – To save money on a birthday cake, you might think that making one yourself is the cheapest option. However, if you’re not a regular baker, you might be worried about the results, and also buying in all of the ingredients can add up quickly. We have lots of birthday cake options that are affordable and delivered to the door. From classic cakes such as Victoria Sponge, to something like our Pinata cakes that have a bit more of a wow factor. We even have lots of dietary options to suit dietary requirements such as gluten free, vegan, dairy free, gluten and dairy free, and even no refined sugar cakes. If you’re looking for a last-minute cake, you might want to think about our Sponge Friday offers as an option. Although this can be risky as we send them out to be delivered on the Friday of each week, and there’s no guarantee that the flavour will be the one you want as we mix it up each week.

Cheap Brownies – Another great food gift, or an alternative to a birthday cake is our brownies. We have a delicious range of brownies in different flavours. Just like our cakes, our brownies come in a variety of options, including gluten free, and vegan brownie options.
