This cake is quite dry and it contains a ridiculously thin amount of cream filling. Very disappointed, will not buy again
Dry and tasteless cake
I see from the other reviews ,that the rating for this cake plummeted after 2018,which doesn't surprise me at all.Everything the other customers complain of is true----very dry,tasteless and very little cream filling---don't waste your money.I even went and checked the packing because I thought they must have sent an out-of-date one!---they hadn't.Disappointing Tesco!
very dry and not much taste
Buy something else...
Not much flavour in the cake, very small amount of cream filling which is a good thing as it tastes very artificial. Won't buy it again.
Shrunk a lot over the years which is a shame.
I used to love purchasing Tesco own slab cakes but I am finding that they to are shrinking them. As you can see from this page, there is no mention on weight, so they can do it without you knowing. My last lot looked a lot thinner, almost sausage like, not impressed hence for the three stars. It also makes me laugh how they expect this cake to feed 8 as the portion would be miniscule, much smaller no doubt than Mr Kiplings tiny teeny cakes. I think it feeds four easily and appropriatly. The good thing about the slab is that you can cut a more suitable amount for guests that doesn't embarass the plate it is in on like the Mr Kipling cakes would do. Taste wise we haven't had a problem, I think its tasty and love the larger nutty bits in it, a homemade kind of feel. Will continue to purchase until they shrink it so much that it isn't worth it anymore.
Not great at all!
Awful received broken like if someone had stepped on it Just trying to get hold of customer services so they give me a full refund
Poor value, dry and tasteless.
Cake was very dry and tasteless. Dryness May be attributed to torn packing so check before you buy in store. Mine was part of a delivery order so I didn’t spot the tear until after the driver had left, was squashed to bits too so not something to offer to guests. Also the price is 25% more than last time I bought this and it seems smaller too!
Usually very good though it depends on the walnuts
Usually very good though it depends on the walnuts being good.
This cake is full of chopped walnuts and is a nice moist sponge with a cream filling, very good value for money, I would have given it 5 stars except I prefer ground walnuts in a cake
