    Make cake less dry, like more moist. But except from that it was alright

    Delivered to my daughter for her birthday. Arrived on time and she said it looked and tasted really nice. She was very happy with it. Thank you.

    A little tweaking is needed here. I'd pay a little more for real butter to be used in the icing and a shorter use by date would be better. Your general idea is great and I would love to use you again.

    This cake was delivered to my daughter on her Birthday at University. It arrived on time and beautifully packaged and decorated. She shared it with her (very grateful!) friends and said the red velvet cake was moist and absolutely delicious and the best cake she had ever tasted! Thank you so much. I am delighted with the service and quality of cake made and delivered by SPONGE and would not hesitate to recommend your Company to others.
