Coronation Cakes

Cakes fit for Royalty

Most of us are about to experience the first royal coronation of our life time on the 6th of May 2023. It’s been 70 years since the previous coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. And now we are about to see His Majesty, King Charles III officially ascend to the throne.

The coronation of a British monarch is a highly ceremonial and symbolic event that marks the formal investiture of the monarch with regal power and authority. The ceremony is usually held in Westminster Abbey, London, and is attended by many dignitaries, including members of the royal family, government officials, and foreign diplomats.

There will be street parties and gatherings all over the UK to celebrate this extremely special occasion. Neighbours, friends, and family members will be coming together to watch and celebrate the coronation proceedings. There will be lots of food and drinks, and we think the best way to complete the festivities is with a delicious cake.

We’ve created a selection of delicious cakes to help you mark the occasion:

Coronation Pinata Cake – A Coronation Sponge fit for a royal celebration! Four layers of delicious chocolate sponge are separated with chocolate buttercream layers. Inside you will find a patriotic surprise of red, white, and blue smarties, and edible golden crowns. Perfect for celebrating the coronation of King Charles III with friends and family. It’s also available as a gluten free cake.

Coronation Victoria Sponge – Our award-winning Victoria Sponge has a light and fluffy vanilla sponge which is sandwiched together with crushed strawberry jam and a generous layer of naturally flavoured vanilla butter cream. On top is a dusting of icing sugar and it comes with Union Jack flags as decoration. This yummy cake is also available as a gluten free cake or a vegan cake.

Coronation Baby Sponges – Create the perfect street party cake pack to share with friends, family, and neighbours to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. These individually wrapped baby sponge cakes come in patriotic Union Jack boxes and are ideal grab-and-go cakes while you're mingling. You can choose between Victoria Baby Sponges, Gluten Free Victoria Baby Sponges, and Vegan Chocolate Baby Sponges. Or, if you want to cater to everyone, you can even mix and match the flavours. They are available in boxes of 4, 8, 16, 40, 80, or 120, so no matter how big the celebration is, everyone will be able to enjoy a tasty cake to mark the occasion with. *Flags sold separately.

Coronation Topped Cake – Our Photo Cakes are the perfect centrepiece for a coronation celebration! You can get creative and upload your own photo and add personalised text, or choose from one of our fun pre-designed coronation toppers! Choose between a Victoria Sponge Cake or a Chocolate Cake, and they are available in two sizes; a cake for 8 or a cake for 16.

Coronation Cake Card – We’ve got the perfect gift to send to your royal subjects. Our Cake Cards, they’re more than just a greetings card, you can include a couple of slices of cake inside. We’ve also created an extra special cake slice for the coronation; a Victoria sponge sprinkled with shimmering red and blue glitter and topped with edible crowns.

All of our coronation cakes can be delivered straight to your door, and we deliver cakes across the UK. We offer next day delivery when you order by 3pm. However, as this is such a special occasion, we recommend that you select a delivery day a day or two in advance of the coronation. Our cakes stay fresh for up to 10 days from the date of dispatch, so even if they do arrive a couple of days early, they will still be delicious on the coronation day.
