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.

    Lovely and soft, fluffy sponge, just the right amount of cream to go with it.

    I ordered 6 cakes - didn't get to try them all. Some really liked this one, others didn't. It depends on whether you are a fan of red velvet I think.

    After reading the raving reviews i decided to order this. Unfortunately, i received a very dry cake. I liked the icing however but i wish i didn’t buy the 16 slice cake. I decided to try this cake because it was cheaper than other cake shops but alas it tasted cheaper too.
