Overpowering maple buttercream!
Only just got around to trying this since plans changed over Christmas, it looks great and would have been nice to have at the centre of the buffet. Well two of us have had 1 small slice but hat will be about it, so sickly and such a strong overpowering maple flavour. I like sweet but won't be rushing to have again. Not sure what to do with the rest.

Looks better than it tastes.
Looked lovely. Found it did not have a lot of taste and was too sweet and sickly for my taste. Someone who has a sweeter tooth would probably find it ok.
A special pre-order. Looked amazing, beautifully decorated but doesn’t have much sponge cake at all - the small amount of sponge was stale and we tried it on the day the order arrived. The centre of the cake was also empty so am guessing it was a baking error at Tesco as there should have been some filling. The outside is rich thick fondant. We couldn’t eat it as stale but I had a mouthful and it was very rich and super sweet. I’m sure a fresh cake would be nice but would not buy again due to all the fondant.
Excellent quality. Delicious and was an exciting centre piece for the whole family. Would definitely buy again.
Far far too sweet
Sickly sickly sweet. A few bites and I was done. This was an expensive cake bought for our Christmas festive food. So disappointed. Unless you like your sugar with sugar and a side of orange flavoured sugar, don’t bother.

Awful. Dry, overly sweet cream. Thought it would be a showstopper, but the balls inside stuck together and made it difficult to cut. Cut three small slices, but all of us were so dissappointed. Threw the rest away, was not worth eating the calories!!
I bought this as a special treat for Christmas.It was so sickly and sweet and even my family didn't like it-and they love really sweet things. Too much butter icing and the cake is very dry. The only ok portion was the chocolate balls in the middle. Might as well have bought a box of maltesers- and saved a fortune.I would not buy it again. Everyone had a slice and no-one finished. Not nice - the rest is going out to the birds.
Disappointing and too expensive
The sponge was very dry, for something so expensive it was very disappointing. Would not purchase again. Hate to throw anything away but nobody wants to eat anymore!
