How do I look?

Our Red Velvet Cake has a striking deep-red Sponge with chocolate notes. It is held together and topped with a velvety vanilla buttercream filling and sprinkled with a pretty red crumb.

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.

    Beautifully baked to perfection, delicious sponge with just enough of the frosting - absolutely love that there is thick layer of sponge and just a tiny bit of frosting in the middle, as frosting is super sweet, sponge isn't that much, so all together it balances out just perfectly in taste.

    This sponge was just perfect. I used it as a base for my daughter's birthday cake - I just added some frosting and sprinkles on the outside and all the guests complimented the cake very much (the taste obviously!)

    The cake was really moist and the filling/topping was a perfect balance of sweet and creamy. Not sickly like many others. The presentation was perfect, whilst not looking like it came off a production line.
