Cake Through Your Letterbox | An Ingenious Idea From Sponge

Before Christmas I wrote a feature for Bloom & Wild the flower company that posts beautiful bouquets through your letterbox (yes, your letterbox), a concept that I absolutely adore. Now a company called Sponge have gone one better and will do the same…but with CAKE!

I was sent an adorable Cake Card* and selection of Baby Sponges* to try from Sponge HQ as an alternative Birthday, Mother’s Day, Happy Friday (do we really need an excuse for cake?!) present for those you love and they were amazing! The cake cards are such a cute idea, perfect for that special occasion when you want your someone to have their cake and eat it too on the big day. In a letterbox friendly package your cake card opens up to reveal one or two hefty slices of delicious cake in a multitude of flavours and your very own personal message inside the lid. You can even add a personalised photo to sit behind the cake so your recipient can keep it long after they’ve demolished the sponge! I chose Red Velvet and Lemon for my cake selection and they were both incredible! Soft, light, moist and ridiculously moreish, the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth and from just £7.50 delivered i think they’re the perfect way to say “Happy Gratuitous Cake Day”!

I also got sent a selection of traditional and quirky baby sponges which were the epitome of adorable! Individually wrapped and boxed in a variety of interesting and classic flavours they’re simply perfect for enjoying with a cup of tea if you’re feeling a little naughty! Those without fruit will last up to 10 days too so if you don’t manage to wolf them all in one go they’ll keep for another day. These would be amazing for a tea party to pop on a plate and impress your guests with and just like the cake card slices they were simply delicious. Bakewell and Carrot were my favourite but the boy loved Coffee and Chocolate! They also do ‘Sponge Friday‘ where if you order before 2pm on Thursday selected flavours of cake are only £9.99 (how can we go about getting this marked as an official holiday?) and there’s also the option to personalise your cakes or add balloons, candles and champagne at the checkout – it’s like a mini party in a box!

These are such an adorable gift and absolutely perfect for Mother’s Day which don’t forget is just round the corner – take a look at the Sponge selection on their website HERE and get your cake on!
