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.

    I personally did not have any of this particular cake as it was a gift for my mum but I've had lemon drizzle from Sponge in a previous mixed flavours cake and it was heavenly.

    The cake was moist, light and utterly delicious. The butter cream in the middle was a great idea and really made it special. Just divine.

    We thought the sponge and buttercream were excellent! But it was spoiled by the large amount of caster sugar on the top. The cake would be perfect if there was just white chocolate drizzle on and no added caster sugar.
  • Brenda R - 28/10/2020

    The cake was lovely and moist, and tasted great, but for me I found it has just a bit too much buttercream that made the cake too sweet.

    Just a great tasting sponge that also keeps fresh for many days...
  • Christine S - 25/10/2020
    Lemon Drizzle for 8
    We found the lemon cake was a bit bland and dry compared to what we normally expect of a lemon cake. Needs more lemon sharpness in both the cake and filling. A more moist cake too would be preferred. Definitely not our favourite choice so far.

    Substantial sponge, high, light, good flavouring, just the right sweetness. Will be buying this again.
