Did you know?

Previously, Christmas cakes were known as Twelfth cakes, that is because they were served at parties on the Twelfth Night, which ended the 12 days of Christmas on the 5th of January. 

The Christmas cake actually started as a plum porridge, this was to line people's stomachs after a day of religious fasting. Soon thereafter, people started incorporating other fruits, and perhaps a bit of honey, so it started to resemble what we now call a Christmas pudding. 

It wasn't until around the 16th century, that more ingredients were added like flour and eggs, meaning the oats were removed, so it started to become the Christmas cakes we know today.

Sponge's Xmas Cake is a traditional (well to today's standard) rich and delicious fruit cake, although not as heavy (in our opinion), so it's much easier on the stomach after a big day of feasting. The cake has a traditional layer of marzipan and is covered in plain white fondant. To finish it all off, it has a lovely ribbon wrapped around the bottom edge of the cake. 

Christmas wouldn't be complete without cake, so if you want a delicious Christmas cake, that's convenient but better quality than a supermarket-bought cake, order a Christmas Cake from Sponge. 

The idea behind our simple Christmas cake design is that you can add your own Christmas cake decorations to it. Whether you have Christmas cake decorations that have been handed down for generations, or you want to buy new modern cake decorations, you can make this cake perfect for your Christmas day.

We deliver our Christmas Cakes all over the UK, we offer delivery close to Christmas, however, as it's a busy time of year for the courier network, we do recommend selecting a delivery date a few days in advance of the last delivery day. This is in case there are any unforeseen delays (such as vehicle breakdowns), and so that your cakes will be there in plenty of time. Our cakes stay fresh for 7-10 days (depending on the flavour), and don't forget if you want to order your cake in advance you can pop it in the freezer, ready to take out on Christmas Eve to enjoy your cake on Christmas day.
