Send personalised cake through the post to someone special and put a smile on their face!

Celebrations of any kind are really special, and they mark important moments in our lives, so having everything to make these occasions extra special will help to create a more memorable experience for everyone who is attending your event.

One thing that can create a bit of a buzz at a party is the cake. Cakes are often centrepieces and surprises for the person or people the celebration is for, so having a cake that is also quite memorable helps create a wonderful experience all round.

The important thing is to make sure that you have a cake that tastes good, as well as looking good. A lot of people make the mistake of focusing on just how the cake looks, although this is an important element to a celebration cake, the taste, if not right, can leave a bad taste in your mouth (pun intended), and ultimately could cause upset at an event.

At Sponge we specialise in making sure our cakes can be personalised in a variety of ways to create something extra special! Whether you need a personalised birthday cake for a family member or you want a personalised cake to say congratulations to a friend on the birth of their new baby – we’ve got it covered. Listed below are all the personalisation options we have below for our yummy Sponge Cakes. All our personalisation options are available once you’ve popped your yummy Sponge Cake(s) in your basket :)


To make your Sponge really stand out from the crowd you could personalise it with your very own photo to create a delicious photo cake! Perhaps you would like to send someone a personalised birthday cake with a photo of the two of you on – all you need to do is upload it to our site and you can even write a message on top too!

Photo cakes are an ideal way to create a custom personalised cake for your loved one or for a party to celebrate a special occasion. You can create your own topper by adding the perfect photo or you can choose from one of our readymade designs, we have lots to choose from, but if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, why not use our bestsellers section for inspiration! We have a fantastic range of pre-made toppers with messages such as Happy Birthday, Congratulations and many more to choose from.

You get to choose between a Victoria Sponge photo cake or a Chocolate photo cake, and they are available as cakes for 8 or cakes for 16.

To create a custom cake, you can add text to your topper, whether it’s a photo topper or a pre-designed topper, you can include names, ages, more images, and special messages.

The toppers are printed using edible ink on to an icing disc which will then be cut out and carefully placed and secured on top of your Victoria Sponge Cake. Your cake will then be securely packaged to arrive at your chosen delivery address.
