Photo Cake

Photo Cake

A square sponge photo cake, covered in white icing and decorated with your photograph or any picture, printed on icing with edible ink on the cake top, together with your personalised wording.

A great idea for a birthday, anniversary or any celebration, our photo cakes can be delivered the next day, or order now for a future delivery date. Buy online and send us your image for the cake top.

You could send an embarrassing old photo, a wedding picture, a school photo or even a child's drawing! Black and white looks just as good as colour.

Our cakes are of the highest quality and taste as good as they look! The light sponge is superb with a moist, soft texture that melts in your mouth.

They are available in two flavours - classic sponge with raspberry jam & buttercream filling, or chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream.

Choose from two sizes:

  • Medium (8 inch) measures 8 x 8 inches (20 x 20 cm) and serves 20 to 30 portions. 
  • Large (10 inch) measures 10 x 10 inches (25 x 25 cm) and serves 30 to 50 portions.

Of course the number of portions depends on how you cut the cake! Our guide is based on a slice from 2 to 3 inches by one inch.

We use only the best quality ingredients including free range eggs. Because the sponge is completely enclosed in the icing they keep very well. We guarantee they will stay fresh for a minimum of 5 days, but usually they last even longer.They are square in shape, covered in white sugarpaste icing and sit on a thick cake board with piped royal icing shells around the base. For full details please click on the Ingredients & Product Info link above.

Our cakes are made and iced by hand. Whilst we try to make each one as square and as flat as possible, there may be slight variations.

If you are sending this as a gift you can include a personalised gift card after you add it to the basket. You will be asked for the delivery address when you check out.

You can have up to four separate pictures on this item. Let us know if you would like them laid out in a particular order, or we will arrange them as we think best

You can upload your photo or logo when you add this item to the basket, or leave it until after your order is completed. In the basket you can upload any image file including JPG, BMP, GIF or PDF. If you want to send any other type of file, or if you want to send it later then please complete your order and make payment. On the order confirmation screen you will see a link to an upload page where you can then upload, email or post any kind of picture.

Here are a few pointers:

  • The better the quality of your original picture is, the better the finished result will be. The actual size of your picture is not important, we will enlarge or reduce it to fit.
  • If you send a very small picture then some quality may be lost if it needs to be enlarged. As a general rule, if it prints well on paper then it will print well on icing.
  • If you are scanning a photo, usually a resolution of 150dpi works best.
  • Black & White photos work just as well as colour.

I thought you might like to see the attached. I am a newly published novelist and the cake was for my book launch. It was much admired and disappeared in seconds after being cut - and pronounced delicious! Thank you so much for such an excellent service

Just to say my book cover cake has arrived and looks amazing! Thanks, Simon. It's beautiful :-)

Gill - March 2019

The cakes were very moist with not too much icing on them so they were not extra sweet. They were enjoyed by everyone present. Thank you for your prompt service.

Hello I just want to say a big thank you for the cake - it looked wonderful and tasted delicious. I should have ordered two!! And the delivery arrangements were flawless, which makes ordering from you so stress free . Very many thanks.


Hi Natalie, My apologies, I meant to message you last week to say thank you so much for the excellent service that yourself and the team provided! Everyone was very impressed with the cake and it tasted absolutely delicious so thank you again and I am sure we will be getting more cakes from you in the future!


Hi Caketoppers , I just wanted to write an email to say thank you so much for the beautiful cake you made for my sisters birthday .... It was received with the biggest smile.... Thank You so much for all your hard work and for making my sisters 40th all the more special with warmest regards


Hi Natalie I just wanted to let you know that the cake arrived on time, surpassed my expectations of quality - both the print quality and the taste of the cake itself - and was a huge hit with my sister (its recipient). Can’t believe I could order this one day and get it delivered to the door the very next day! Amazing. Thanks a million :)


Your cakes were delicious and very attractive; even after a couple of weeks, the sponge element was fresh and soft. We’ll be back next year with our next order!


Hi Natalie, I was extremely impressed with the quality and speed of the service I received from Cake toppers. The cake arrived at the pre-advised time in perfect condition and exactly to my specifications. There was even the addition of a red ribbon! The cake was to commemorate the 1st Anniversary of the re-opening of our local pub, taken over by a group of us, and we had a 'bit of a do'. We had a great time and the cake was admired by all, so much so that everyone said it was a shame to cut it up! It tasted lovely and everyone enjoyed it. So thanks again and I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a special cake in a hurry.


To all at Caketoppers. I would like to say a massive thank you from all the Welwyn Garden City Youth Under 13 Boys and their families for the fantastic cake that you made for us. The cake was for one of the boys that was leaving and it helped make his send off a good one. The cake was lovely and the service was brilliant. I will not hesitate to recommend you and will be in contact for cakes in the future. Thanks again


Thank you for the cake. It was a great success! Excellent service and we will definitely order again.


Dear caketoppers, My cake was a leaving cake for Fr. Paul. I was so impressed with the efficiency of this company and staff (I got a call from a kind lady to check all was ok). Cake arrived on sat. Perfectly timed too. There was a huge congregation, who thought it was amazing, those who didn't get a slice were so happy just to have a photo. Many thanks & Kind regards,


Thank you for producing a superb cake! The cake itself was very tasty and not too sweet but the impressive bit was the quality of the photo reproduction, which was amazingly detailed! It made our celebration.


Excellent service 10/10!


The cake that you sent for the staff at my little boys nursery was absolutely fantastic! You do did a remarkable job merging the two images and the result was awesome. We are returning customers having purchased all of our birthday cup cakes from you over the past few years and you never fail to impress on the look or taste quality. This was the first large cake that we have bought from you and it was up to the same standard. Thank you so much, reviews also on twitter and name tagged on instagram. It's not often you get excellent customer service with fabulous products. Well done and keep up the good work... we will be ordering again!
