Engagement Cakes

Celebrate the happy news with cake!

As the new year begins, there are lots of things to celebrate. We always think that when January comes around all the celebrations have ended. But that’s not true. In fact, the most popular time of year to get engaged is actually over the festive period. There are thousands of people who propose every year between Christmas and New Year’s. A theory behind this could be that the proposer wants to ask their other half to marry them while they are surrounded by all of their family to make it an extra special occasion.

It is hard to properly celebrate an engagement when it’s done at this time of year, most people have already got plans with their loved ones, but perhaps the ideal time to celebrate a festive engagement is in January! It’s a great way to shake off those January blues – and gives everyone something to look forward to.

And there are plenty of options to choose from, from Sponge, that make the perfect gifts or is ideal for any themed engagement party.
