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 brought the gluten free as my self and young Granddaughter are Celiac it's our 5 GF sponge from you and is my personal favorite one very clever to have three Layers as two wouldn't work as it is just the right amount of filling to sponge to keep soft and delicious ! I think you should definitely do more limited/seasonal ones because I would definitely be interested in trying them ! My whole family enjoyed it and most importantly we could all sit and enjoy this diffently delicious treat as a family ! Thank you so much sponge family ! Ps any chance next time on a Eaton mess cake please πŸ˜‰πŸ“πŸ°

    Loved the flavour of this cake. Could really taste the lime. A very moist cake & a little denser than the more usual flavours, but am guessing that’s because of the courgette. Told my husband that it was a pistachio & lime cake until he had eaten it & commented how nice it was. It was only then I mentioned the courgette bit πŸ˜€ A really nice change from the norm. Would definitely have again.

Did you know?

Zucchini is just the American word for a courgette! That's right, this scrumptious cake, much like carrot cake, has a vegetable as the star ingredient in the sponge, adding a different dynamic to the cake. It is perfectly balanced with a delicious lime buttercream between the sponge layers and on top of the cake. The final flourish is the added chopped pistachios sprinkled across the top for extra texture.

You can create a personalised Zucchini and Lime Cake by adding candles, cards, or even a bottle of prosecco to your cake order! As soon as you pop your sponge into your basket these options will become available.
