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.

    Ordered this for my partners birthday as her favourite is lemon drizzle and I wanted to try something different than the usual I buy. The cake arrived on the day of her birthday, and she was very surprised and pleased! We really enjoyed the cake, it was delicious and the sponge was lovely and thick. It's been perfect! Will definitely buy from you again.

    This was a birthday treat during lockdown so sadly I didn’t get to try it. I‘m told it was very fresh, tasted delicious and easily served 8 as it was about 6 inches deep. Will definitely use again and recommend to everyone.

    I bought the lemon cake for my father for his birthday and both him and my mother said it was gorgeous and the cream in the middle was really lovely.

    Ordered 2 lemon cakes as Father’s Day gifts, one for my dad and one for my sons dad. They were both successfully delivered on the requested day and I’ve had very positive feedback about the cake. I did manage to try a little piece myself and it was very fresh and light. I would recommend to others, and if I’m looking for cake gifts in future, I’ll be back to try some of the other tempting offerings.

    The lemon cake is a favourite and I have consistently ordered for my son's birthday. My son is an adult who lives and works in London and the lemon cake has become a favourite and expected part of his birthday celebrations with his friends and colleagues - they all enjoy - a great way to share birthday celebrations - good flavour and good quality all round! Well done Sponge!

    Yum. The cake looked and tasted wonderful. The lemon flavour was absolutely spot on and made a refreshing change from the usual lemon drizzle cake which can be a little sickly. Would definitely order this flavour again.

    It seems the Lemon Cake was exactly as described and very, very lemony!

    The great thing about these cakes is they taste home made and don’t come covered in processed fondant icing or over iced with butter cream. I bought it for someone who bakes a lot and they were very impressed.
