Still not “free from” has eggs!

1 stars

Can you not make a cake without eggs? That is the only allergen left in your ingredient list.

Dry and tasteless

1 stars

Brought for my sons 4th birthday. Unfortunately the cake was incredibly dry and tasteless.I would not recommend it at all. Disappointed!


5 stars

Bought for two year old's birthday and it was surprisingly very yummy. Will be buying again for subsequent birthdays.

Gluten free cakes can be delicious and soft,unfort

1 stars

Gluten free cakes can be delicious and soft,unfortunately, we may have well just eaten the box for all the taste it delivered. Such a disappointment and not cheap either.

Carl is great. I've missed him these last few mont

5 stars

Carl is great. I've missed him these last few months. His outer fondant layer keeps his chocolate internal organs moist and delicious. Don't be fooled by Carl's friendly colourful appearance - he is a great cake for all ages and goes really nicely with ice cream or a cup of tea. My only critical feedback would be that Carl is NOT available in a 1 meter length version. Good work Carl!


4 stars

Quite nice, slightly dry but good gluten free

Amazing to get a cake for my baby his allowed

Soya lecithin? Why not sunflower lecithin?

3 stars

Tasted good, looked good, but WHY do so many chocolate cakes contain soya lecithin when sunflower lecithin is available? Soya is an allergen and we can't all tolerate it. Come on Tesco. Get on board. Some of us have multiple allergies and intolerances. I cannot eat gluten, oats, soya or sulphites. So it is gluten free. So what? No good for soya intolerant customers. If we take our custom elsewhere we take the whole household shop with us.

NOT "vegetarian"!

1 stars

Beware! This is NOT "suitable for vegetarians"!!! The sugar strands contain SHELLAC! Since when have Shellac beetles been a vegetarian delicacy?!? Come on Tesco, there are plenty of vegetarian alternatives!!! Even omitting the sugar strands would be better! If you're vegetarian, AVOID this unless you want to eat beetles!!!

one and only tasty free from birthday cake

5 stars

Moist and tasty. Not easy to get the textures right with wheat free cakes but this is perfect.
