  • It is a fine cake and our favourite. The burst of smarties is great fun, The chocolate shavings are high quality chocolate and the butter cream layers keep it moist. The last point is why it is much better than the regular chocolate or coffee cakes that can sometimes be a bit dry. Thanks team, a great birthday cake treat.

  • The cake wasn't too dry and the buttercream was perfect. We followed the advice on the enclosed leaflet and it tasted great. The chocolate/cocoa quality seems good, as this is often noticeable with baked goods.

  • We’ve had many cakes from sponge, this was our first pinata cake, and most likely our last. The cake felt really small due to the hollowed centre and didn’t really enjoy eating all the tiny little sweets inside- would of been better and more enjoyable if they had been bigger sweets, like smarties as opposed to the tiny tiny sweets that ended up mostly in the bin- even the children couldn’t be bothered with them as too small to enjoy.
