The Sponge Family have been selling wonderful sponge in our higgledy, piggledy café since September 2000. With old-school standards and a stickler for detail, Sue’s sponge cakes have developed a huge following.

Customers have stood open-mouthed at the scale of the cake, some went weak at the knees with the flavour, and others hollowed out the middle and moved in!

During the summer of 2009 they took their sponge cakes out of the comfort of their Byfords home, created a new look under the company name of SPONGE and held stands at the county’s shows.
The feedback was great and the decision made – they would go for it! Much excitement, tastings, research and the usual good pinch of graft followed and SPONGE was born. Their SPONGE is made with love and care in small batches.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
