The Coronation Bake Off Winner!

Thank you to all that entered The Bake Off competition, we received hundreds of delicious entries, but sadly, there can only be one winner...

Congratulations to Jenni Selby!

We are delighted to announce Jenni as the winner of The Coronation Bake Off, with her winning Honey and Plum Cake!

Jenni was inspired to enter the competition as she loves making cakes, even though she says, ''I'm actually not very good at making cakes''; however, Sponge would disagree.

When creating the winning sponge, Jenni wanted to ensure it was relevant to the King and chose to include plums, knowing King Charles starts every morning with a plum. In asking Jenni; What do you think makes the perfect sponge recipe? She replied, ''It's all about using the best quality ingredients''. And Sponge strongly agrees, by only using quality British ingredients in every cake!

After being announced as the winner, Jenni celebrated her victory with her family with a slice of cake, very fitting! And decided to choose The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity . In honour of her father-in-law, who was treated there for prostate cancer.

Jenni is already a loyal customer of Sponge, having sent cakes in the past, including to her dad in his retirement village, where all of the residents got a slice.

We'd like to congratulate Jenni on her Coronation Bake Off victory and thank her for her delicious idea!

What's Next?

The new Honey and Plum special is on the way and will be available to buy online soon in aid of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

With each cake sold, 20% of the proceeds will be donated directly to The Royal Marsden to go towards helping to ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments used here in the UK and around the world.

“We are so grateful to Sponge and Jenni for choosing to fundraise for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. This generous support will help us to fund state-of-the-art equipment, the very best patient environments and groundbreaking research to help transform the lives of cancer patients at The Royal Marsden and beyond.”
