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.

    I bought this cake for my friend's birthday. She told me it was delicious, not too sweet and moist. She skipped lunch to have two slices so that's a sign of how nice it was!

    Ordered the red velvet cake to be sent to my daughters student house for her 20th Birthday.......and her and her house friends absolutely loved it! I ordered the rainbow decoration and a 2 and 0 candle, but then realised after the order that I had missed the 0 candle out of the basket! The friendly people at Sponge quickly rectified my mistake for me! I would highly recommend and will definitely order from them again ......5 star all the way!!!!

    Red velvet cake is my favourite, so I didn't want to risk trying to make one myself over Valentines and getting it wrong! Your cake was absolutely delicious, and brilliant quality! Very well packaged, with clear updates and instructions on storage and shelf life. Eaten within advised 7 days, with every slice fully enjoyed by myself and my family. Will 100% be using your service again.
