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 butter cream and has a pretty drizzle effect on top creating a pretty lemon drizzle cake.

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.

    It was the best. Good flavour and totally worth it. Only thing to improve could be have a bit more moist sponge. But it was delicious.

    My Son wanted a Lemon drizzle cake for his Birthday, I’d left it late to make one and didn’t want a supermarket one. We all loved it - looked good, tasted even better. Can’t wait to try some of the other Sponge varieties offered!! Thanks

    We took advantage of the Friday offer for the Lemon Sponge. My husband and I loved the cake but my sister and mum wanted it to be more lemony and the sponge a little more moist. Perhaps they are thinking of a Lemon Drizzle cake?
