5 stars

I had never tried this cake before and was very pleasantly surprised. I found it delicious, so much so, that I bought another in my next shop. My dad can't eat anything too chocolatey but still likes a sweet treat and for him this was perfect.

Hard and stale

1 stars

Despite asking for a long sell by date or to give a substitution, this came on my home delivery two days off sell by date. Consequently the sponge was stale and the topping rock hard. Stop palming off short sell by cakes to those who are vulnerable and unable to shop in store please Tesco.

not right at all

1 stars

It's just not right who puts chocolate icing in a red velvet cake it should be only cream cheese frosting but definetly not the one you're currently using it was dry and awful doesn't come close to some of the red velvet cakes from other supermarkets

Tasty and Sweet

5 stars

the best velvet cake in the supermarket

Truly dry flavourless cake

1 stars

Dreadful Very poor representation of what should have been a moist raspberry flavoured sponge was dry and tasteless. All Tesco have done is add red food colouring. The cake was dry tasteless and a poor representation of a (what should be) a luscious luxurious cake. Awful. Don't buy as a dessert for your special Valentines day meal.

Amazing Cake

5 stars

This is the nicest cake I have ever eaten!

This had the oddest taste. The cream cheese icing

1 stars

This had the oddest taste. The cream cheese icing clashes with the chocolate icing inside. A horrible combination and a disappointing cake. No-one who tried it liked it :(

In the top favourites

5 stars

My favourite cake is red velvet so I’m critical of the ones I taste and the Tesco finest red velvet is by far in the top category, I near enough have to stop myself eating the whole thing in one go. Although the bad issue is the fact it seems to be slowly leaving stores which I don’t want happening but I guess most people aren’t as obsessed as I am for it

bitter after taste

1 stars

I love the finest chocolate cake, but this had a nasty bitter after taste and was not good at all. Sadly I had to throw it away.

This is the worst cake I have ever tasted. Come on Tesco you need to do better. A block of sugary rubbish. I just wasted 2.75.
