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.

    Cannot recommend this company enough. I ordered the red velvet cake and can say it was probably the best I have tasted, so light. Delivery was on time and updates were frequent. Needless to say I will be ordering from you again.

    Perfect size, moist soft and springy , luscious texture. Filling just sweet enough but not sickly. Cuts very well and holds it shape. Family adored it!

    The sponge is lovely in appearance and delicious in taste according to the receiver, who is my boyfriend. The cake that is good for 8, had been shared by more than 8people, so it's really worth it.

    I ordered the red velvet cake for my wifes birthday. One of the nicest cakes I have had. Finished the last slice today 5 days after delivery and still fresh. Looking forward to the next order already

    Nice light sponge and creamy icing. I ordered the smaller size and would say that you would easily get 8 large slices out of it, if not more!

    The red velvet cake for my daughters 21st birthday arrived on time and in perfect condition and looked amazing. The quality of the cake was perfect but the frosting/icing was not or did not taste at all like cream cheese which is the unique quality of red velvet cake which my daughter loves and who noticed straight away as it is her favourite. It simply tasted of beautifully of made vanilla butter icing so lost it’s unique taste attraction which is disappointing

    So I didn't want to order a birthday cake from a local supermarket but during lockdown, getting out and about is hard with two young children in toe. So I found this place with Google search and did it delivery! I ordered the cake on a specific date - the only down fall was I selected before 12o'clock and it come at 1 o'clock- not a great biggy. I ordered a 8 serving cake for a specific date, 2 candles for just over £21 which I thought was an amazing price! They even threw in some napkins, which I thought was a nice touch. The cake was amazing and the whole family loved it! 10 out of 10 from me. I will definitely consider ordering from here again and not rush to the supermarkets!

    I came to Holt a few years back and learned to make perfect sponge cakes. This cake was a special treat for our anniversary - it was so, so special. Utterly delicious, perfect texture and stayed moist for the 4 days we eked it out for - though I could have eaten it for breakfast, lunch and dinner And if you did low-calorie versions I'd be in Cake Club immediately.....just trying to think of a suitable excuse to order the 14 portion sharing cake - not that it would get shared!!

    Moist yet fluffy! The cream was just perfection - not too buttery and not too sugary. The best red velvet I've tried.

    Lovely moist and flavoursome cake. Plenty big enough for 8 portions or one huge slice for a pregnant woman with cravings!
