Quite a nice cake on the whole. The sponge is very close to what you buy in Madeira itself. The ratio of sponge to buttercream is just about right (as a buttercream loather) and there’s plenty of cake so it will serve at least 12 people with a generous slice. 6 quid! It’s a bargain! One recommendation is that, if you have some left over after you cut the first few slices, put it back in the box and then a large carrier bag just to keep it fresh. The box alone is not enough after opening.

I bought this cake for my son's birthday. It was light and tasty, just on the right side of sweet, and my son enjoyed it very much. For birthday or any kind of party, or even just a lazy Sunday morning in with cake and a hot cup of coffee, this is a wee kind of wonderful.

Had I been sensible enough to read the ingredients list prior to ordering I never would have ordered, it is full of all things I like to avoid with no mention of the things all cake should, in my opinion include, such as butter. Whatever this cake is, Madeira cake it is not! The taste and texture are those of a cheap, blown up cake and not the dense butteriness that defines Madeira cake. I will stick to home made in future then I will know and trust what I am eating.
