Item Information

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 16 to 24 portions. 
  • Large (10 inch) measures 10 x 10 inches (25 x 25 cm) and serves 24 to 36 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.

Your Image

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.

It went to a dog show on 20 March & everyone was very impressed with the quality & taste of the cake. A friend has asked me for your details as she wants to order one too.

Thank you for helping to make Cody's celebration special.


Photo CakeJust wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful cake that was delivered in perfect condition to The New Theatre in Cardiff for the cast of La Cage Aux Folles. There if a photo on twitter with the cast and cake. The cake looks amazing, shame I won't get any!!


Photo CakeHello

Thank-you for another superb cake, promptly delivered and as delicious as always

Once again made for a perfect celebration at the BMW Car Club National Festival yesterday


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.

Maureen - March 2019

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

Gill - March 2019

Photo CakeI 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

Gill - March 2019

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing cake you supplied for me last week which I decorated for my Dad's 90th Birthday. It was quite simply the best sponge cake I (and many of the guests who commented) have tasted. I was worried that the cake might arrive damaged but it was absolutely perfect. I would not hesitate to order from you again - fabulous!!

Sue - June 2019

Just wanted to thank you for the photo birthday cake recently ordered. It arrived on the date requested and was expertly and safely packaged, it was also helpful to be told what size of cake was required for the number of guests. Upon cutting it was found to be moist and delicious and a great hit with the birthday man and all his guests. I would certainly recommend your company for a beautifully made to order celebration cake. I myself will certainly be ordering again !

Norma - June 2019

A quick email to say a huge thank you for the beautiful cake that you made for our 91 year celebration at the farm. The cake was delicious. The photo on the top had been cropped perfectly to give a colourful and superbly clear image. Delivery was extremely quick and on time after a very late and ‘close to the finishing post’ order from me. Never mind the name ‘Caketoppers’, you could also be called ‘Showstoppers’! Perfect and grateful thanks to the whole team

Elizabeth - September 2019

Cake arrived this a.m. safe + sound. It is fantastic, almost a shame to eat it. Again. Thank you soooo much for all your help. I have received delivery of that cakes and just wanted to say a huge thank you ! they look amazing …! Son Chris' 50th b.d. Cake was an outstanding, memorable success and was the "star" of the evening. He had to stand on a table for about 125 friends + family to see him receive it which was a complete surprise for him. It traveled in the back of his brother's car safely and arrived well before time. So once again THANK YOU sooooo much for all your help, guiding me in to Caketoppers and staying on to take the order. It was was the best, most appreciated, amusing present ever.

Veronica - October 2019

Photo CakeJust a quick note to thank you for the cake received yesterday which meets all expectations and will most likely be consumed this evening. Great job on your part which will be remembered for possible future occasions (like Diamond Wedding Anniversary in June next year 2020).

Mike - November 2019

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing cake topper and sponge cake you provided us with recently. It was perfect and everyone was amazed by how good it was/looked. We didn't want to cut it up!! Thank you for making our celebrations today that bit more special

Marianne - November 2019

I was absolutely delighted with the cake I ordered last week. The person who took the order was really helpful, the cake came when it was supposed to and it looked and tasted great.

Nicky - November 2019

Thank you for the brilliant 70th birthday Golf cake. I was slightly dubious about how it would stay fresh but you blew my doubt right out of the water…what a delicious moist chocolate cake indeed. The golf theme was really good and I got a little plastic golfer from Hobbycraft which completed the cake perfectly. Your packaging is amazing too and the cake was in perfect condition. I will definitely use Caketoppers the next time I need a cake.

Pam - December 2019

Thanks you very much, the cake arrived safely this morning. It looks good & hopefully my friend will enjoy it!

Cathy - January 2020
