How do I look?

Our Lemon Cake has a light and golden sponge full of sweet citrus flavour from the natural lemon oil and juice running through it. It is bound together with lashings of lemon oil buttercream and it's topped with a lemon drizzle, dusted with golden caster sugar, and finished with a white chocolate drizzle on top.

STORAGE - Please store me in an air-tight container in a cosy spot - I don't like being kept in the fridge. Can be frozen for up to 6 months.

How do I arrive?

Our sponge cakes are packaged in secure and robust packaging. The inner box is wrapped around the cake to securely hold it in place so the sides and top do not get damaged in transit. The box also includes a handy cutting guide! It is then put in a strong cardboard outer box for extra protection so it will arrive to you safely.

    You said you had improved this to taste more of lemon,sadly i disagree. Great sponge and buttercream,but if i close my eyes i would say it was a victoria sandwich. No lemon taste at all? Drizzle was just crystalised sugar,same again,no lemon taste.

    A moist sponge cake with a tasty lemon zing. The cream filling is not too thick and not too sweet, and has a lovely light vanilla taste to it. There is a slight crispiness to the to ping that makes it even more delightful. Perfect! 10/10.

    I sent this to a friend who has just come home after had an operation instead of flowers. She was delighted with it, she tells me it is delicious - light and moist, perfect to share with friends visiting her. The lemon drizzle was sweet but tangy not too rich.

    Very light and flavor, could taste the lemon but not overpowering. Lemon is my favourite, we hadn’t ordered before but will order again.

    I ordered a lemon sponge for 8. It was absolutely delicious, very fresh and looked great. I'd definitely order again.
  • Marcia H - 05/08/2020

    Beautifully presented and packaged. Nice and moist. Deep and generous sponge. The sponge itself could have benefitted from a much stronger hit of lemon. We felt (as a family of lemon drizzle cake lovers!) that there was not enough lemon zest in the sponge. The buttercream was nice and lemony.
