Deterioration in quality
We have ordered one of these most weeks during lockdown using click and collect. The quality varies from week to week and seems to be deteriorating lately. The latest one looks to be unbaked in the middle of the bottom layer - just a solid mass, with no texture and a strange colour. It’s disappointing.

It was very good quality, but to describe the sponge as "buttery" is surely a misnomer. There is no butter in a sponge cake. I took the top layer off and put in a layer of strawberries and put the lid back on. Heavenly.
Waste of money
If you want to buy a "Fresh Cream Strawberry Victoria Sponge" to feed to the birds then this is a good choice. If not don't bother. Dry, and "cream" if you can find it.
hardly any cream cutting back is obvious
not enough cream. go to Morrison's if you want quality
When the going gets tough, the tough get brewing.
Great with a cuppa. Good value for the money. Maintains its structure if you use a fork. Will order again.
If you eat straight from the fridge it's hard and tastes dry. If you leave out of the fridge for 15 mins it crumbles and disintegrates. Sponge is tasteless. Only flavour was in the jam and cream filling. Disappointing.
Inconsistent quality. The one I had last week had a stodgy sponge, the cream was more like buttercream too sweet. The only nice thing was the jam. I shan’t purchase again
Delicous and yummy

Hit or Miss
Never the same twice. First one I bought was perfect. Sponge was delicious and there was lots of jam and cream. Well worth five stars and the money. Following week there was very little jam and cream although the sponge was good. Third week plenty of jam and cream but the sponge collapsed as it was eaten. I will not be spending any more money on these cakes as you cannot guarantee the quality. It is such a shame as the first one was absolutely perfect.
