Photo Cakes - Cake Toppers - Birds Eye View

How are your photo cakes made?

Choose between a Chocolate Cake for 8 or a Chocolate Cake for 16 on the drop down above and then you can choose whether to upload and create your own photo topper or pick from one of our fab designs.

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 Chocolate Cake. Your cake will then be securely packaged to arrive at your chosen delivery address.

What flavours are available?

We have two yummy Sponge Cake flavours available to choose from - our Chocolate Photo Cake or our Victoria Sponge Photo Cake. Both are available in two sizes: for 8 or for 16 (with very generous portions!). Perfect for small or big birthday gatherings.

How do our cakes arrive?

When can I have a photo cake delivered?

If you are looking for a specific date to have your photo cake delivered you can check to see if it is available by clicking here.

Our small team of expert bakers takes great care while preparing your topped cakes, so it takes a little longer to create them, meaning we need to allow an extra day to process photo cake orders. This also means that there may be limited availability when demand is high.

You can place an order for your photo cake in advance for a special occasion using the calendar as you go through the checkout.

What can I put on my topper?

You can get as creative as you like! Start with a blank canvas and upload your own photo or design, then add some text if you like, to create your very own masterpiece. Not sure what you want, or not feeling very creative? Then we have a large selection of pre-designed cake toppers from birthday toppers, wedding toppers or even new home toppers! We are sure you will find one that's just right :)

    My only negative is that when designing the cake i dont think its very easy for people to do. If you know how to use a paint program its easier. The program doesnt allow you to measure the design onto the cake that easily ^^ Other than that everything else was awesome !!!!!!

    The Cake was nice but unfortunately we got sent a Victoria sponge cake , instead of a chocolate cake . however when I e-mailed the company about the issue they responded quickly and gave us a credit note for the full amount.

    Have had a few of these lovely cakes now, lemon cake and a strawberry’s & cream one which was delicious, lovely and moist. Found biscoff and the chocolate cakes a little on the dry side, the photo on the chocolate cake was good presentation and enjoyable to eat. Looking forward to trying more flavours in the future.

    I live overseas and was looking for a bakery in the UK to send a cake to my boyfriend for his bday, I found Sponge to be the exact kind of local bakery I was looking for, I love their story and their lovingly crafted products. I’ve ordered several times, most recent being a Photo Cake, all delivered on time and in perfect condition. I highly recommend this company. When I visit the UK next, will definitely make the trip to Norfolk to check it for myself :)) Best wishes from Toronto.
