Cheap and still costing more than its worth
Dry and extremely mean with the barely present buttercream.
choose something else
tastes like sweet cotton wool
Not as good as it used to be
We stopped buying this cake for a while because we were finding it dry and virtually no buttercream compared to how it used to be. Tried it again today but nothing has improved. Would gladly pay more for there to be a decent amount of filling between the layers - the cake falls apart as there is so little.
I wish I´d read the reviews before buying. The cake was dry and tasteless with hardly any buttercream. The icing had a peculiar flavour - not like any coffee I´ve ever tasted !
Not too sweet, not dry, good coffee taste. Happy
I I enjoyed it. I shared it with my friend on her birthday. I particularly loved the icing on top which was very tasty and in my opinion not too sweet. The sponge didn't taste at all dry to me and that too had a nice coffee taste. The buttercream filling could have been thicker but it was no big deal overall. I find many iced cakes too sweet but this one I thought was excellent for the price. I'd probably treat myself to it again.
Dry and tasteless
I could only just tell that this cake was coffee. It was very dry, even with a cup of tea, I did not enjoy it at all.
Would not recommend
Very dry cake - the buttercream was virtually undetectable and the fondant topping was rubbery, tasteless and detached from the cake. Relegated to the bin, never going to buy this again.
Will not buy this again.
This was a regular purchase, but when I cut the first piece from the latest one there was no buttercream at all at that end or, as far as I could tell, at the other end and very little in the middle making the cake dry and tasteless. Tesco should be carrying out regular quality control checks on such items especially when there are negative reviews (in my opinion!)
Used to be so noce, now its awful!
These used to be so good. Now the icing is so thin & tasteless. The cake is dry and has no coffee flavour. And as for the buttercream...where is it.. its so thinly spread...you are hard pushed to see it? No taste to the cake at all
Just awful. I rarely buy cake, it is a very rare treat. So i was really looking forward to this but what a disappointment ! The buttercream was so thin it was difficult to detect and the cake itself was dry although there were still 3 weeks untilit reached its best before date. Undaunted i made up some buttercream and applied between the layers, but this still did not address the fact that the cake was dry. I had to admit defeat and consign this apology for a cake to the bin !
