What is the difference between Chocolate Sponge and Chocolate Maderia?

Our sponge is a traditional recipe using eggs, sugar and Flour, sometimes called a fatless sponge. This has an open texture with a more delicate flavour as distinct from our Maderia recipe which has a denser texture and a richer chocolate flavour. You will get more servings from a Maderia cake and the shelf life of a Maderia cake is longer.

What option do I have for Inscription Colour and text?

Our standard inscription colors are included in the drop down box but a custom colour can be requested at an extra charge of €3. When selecting a custom colour please describe the colour you need in the special requests prompt. We will do our best to provide the text color you request.

An inscription is included in the costs. We reserve the right to refuse potentially offensive messages. Please check your spelling, and use text only. Your inscription will go on the cake exactly as entered and is limited to a maximum of 35 characters.

Can I add a Photograph to the cake?
You can add an icing sugar photograph to all celebration cakes, with the exception of Fresh Cream cakes, at an additional cost of € 5 by selecting this in the drop down option. To add an image to your cake, please email your photograph to once cake is ordered and you have received an order number. Please include this order number  when sending your image.

Please ensure your photograph is of good quality and is uploaded directly from a digital camera or smart phone when possible. We reserve the right to refuse potentially offensive images.
