Disappointed to say the least! Very soggy due to too much jam and no butter cream. Cake had a 2 week within date but never again would I purchase. Whoever has brand rights to making this cake you are certainly giving the wonderful Mary Berry a bad name I'm sure she would be mortified as my family & myself are.
Cake was bought for a birthday celebration. Very disappointed. Extremely dry and no cream between icing and cake making it very difficult to cut and kept falling off.
Very disappointing cake.
Bought this cake for a friends wedding anniversary as it said it was a Mary Berry cake and looked very nice, but there it all ended. It was dry and the icing did not adhere to the cake and was rubbery. In short it was disgusting and I felt ashamed at giving it to the couple. I left it with them, but feel sure it was fed to the birds. Poor birds. Went back to the branch where I had bought it from, but they could not write a complaint as I did not return it. Hence this report.
Save your money and get a basic tesco cake!
What a complete waste of money. Very dry sponge, overpowering jam and sliver of butter cream. The fondant icing covering the sponge peels away as there is no adhesion to the sponge. As soon as you cut into it the cake (icing/sponge) disintegrates. Shocking quality and size of cake for price. Paying only to boost Mary Berry royalties! Would be best just buying Tesco basic celebration cake.
This cake was of poor quality, was dry, had less buttercream than cheaper alternative, the jam was sparse and the icing pulls away from the cake as there is no buttercream under it. It is very disappointing that Mary Berry has put her name to this cake. Save yourself the money and buy a cheaper alternative.
Very dry cake, not much buttercream or jam inside & far too much fondant icing on top. Would expect better for a Mary Berry cake, it seems you are just paying for the brand - not the quality of the product. Not sure if the recipe has changed since previous reviews?
Very pretty & delicious,bought for special birthda

Room for improvement
Dry and rather stingy on the filling... Flavourwise, it's good, though. Not bad for an emergency cake.
