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.

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.

The different forms of birthday pastries and cakes have been around for hundreds of years, with differing shapes, colours, ingredients and decorations. The first known birthday cake was believed to be made in Middle Age Germany, for Kinderfest a birthday celebration for children. These cakes would have been cheap and simple, whereas the more elaborately detailed, layered and decorated cakes were once only available to the very wealthy but thankfully are now affordable by most of us in the developed world.
