Embracing the trend for nostalgia and classic flavours in new formats, Finsbury has put what it describes as a ‘berry special’ twist on the classic Victoria sponge. The Raspberry Ripple cake sees raspberry jam sandwiched between two layers of sponge cake and topped with a cream cheese frosting and fruity feather finish.

Mary Berry and Finsbury Food Group first teamed up on the cake range in 2017. Since then it has been expanded multiple times with lemon and chocolate Bundt cakes added to the line-up in 2021.

The manufacturer has many licensed brands including Thorntons and vegan-friendly Bosh! In July, the business reported record full-year sales despite the ‘exceptional macroeconomic and inflationary headwinds’.
