A couple of weeks back now it was my brothers birthday and I was on the hunt for something special in the cake department. Normally I would buy cakes from Goodfellows Bakery but these can be pricey from £40-£60 but unfortunately at the time the website was down so I had to look elsewhere for a nice cake and I was not prepared to buy anything from the supermarket, as I just find they’re very bland compared to homemade cakes.
I must admit I am a terrible cook when it comes to baking cakes and the sorts so this was most definitely not an option for this occasion, so I figured Google would be my next best option. I wanted something homemade and fresh with a reasonable price tag and I noticed www.sponge.co.uk in my search after a quick browse and instantly knew this was the one. Trying to peel my eyes away from all the incredible cakes on offer, I had to pick between two so I went with the coffee and chocolate sponge cake. Coffee had to be my favorite as I love anything with coffee and really liked how moist the sponge was and the intense flavour, I also realised the top has decorative cocoa beans that are made from chocolate and not coffee, so this was a nice touch.
I loved the butter cream filling and how light the sponge was, making it very yummy and flavoursome. The chocolate cake was also similar to the coffee cake with a nice light, moist sponge and chocolate butter cream filling. The top of this sponge has a mixture of white and milk chocolate butter cream with chocolate shavings to decorate. This sponge cake was less flavour some than the coffee and for that reason I was not to impressed with this one, but again this does come down to personal taste and preferences as my brother and family loved this cake, but it just wasn’t for me. Each cake I bought was the smallest version (“7 at £12.50 each and you will get 8 slices out of this size) you can also opt for the larger option at (10″ for £19.99 and you will get 16 slices out of this).
When you first enter the site you will find it extremely hard to pick a cake as you have so much options to choose from!! I really wanted to try the “Sharing Sponge“ as this looked incredible with x2 slices of each cake, making it a great option for dinner parties. I would highly recommend SPONGE and you can also get personalised cakes and create your own with the choice of flavour, butter cream and topping to suit your personal needs. They also do Gluten Free cakes and cute Baby Sponge/Party cakes that come in 8 flavours, not only this but you can also get your cake gift wrapped with candles and a personalised card, making this a great gift option for someone who loves cakes.
