If there’s one thing I love, it’s little cakes. Perhaps it is why I love an afternoon tea as much as I do, because I get endless cups of tea plus endless tiny cakes to snack on. So I was very excited to discover these little beauties.
These little cakes are basically big cakes but miniature. If that makes sense. As you can see they are two little cakes slices that are sandwiched together with chocolate frosting. It may come as no surprise to you that these cakes are THICC. They are soft and spongy, but are very stodgy. One cake is definitely enough for one day. They also have this weird moist-ness to them where they almost feel sticky to touch?
They are very yummy though. Definitely can taste the fudge in them and they are very chocolatey. Almost to the point where they can get very rich and very sickly very quickly. Luckily, they do seem to keep really well: I can have a packet for a week and they are still soft and spongy by the fifth day after being opened. Granted I keep them in a tupperware, but they definitely do not seem to lose any of their moisture.
Price wise they are a bit more expensive. I tend to find them for around £3.50, which is more than most cakes. But you do also get 4 little cakes per packet so it does work out quite reasonably priced. I think these would be perfect for parties or afternoon tea spreads because I doubt anyone could eat more than one of these in one sitting – or at least if they did they either have a sugar addiction or a stomach of steel!
