The Verdict

The whole family tried and tested this Gluten Free and Wheat Free Orange & Vanilla Cake.

This cake was really attractively packaged. It smelled delicious, really orangey, the smell reminded us of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. On first inspection the cake looked like wholemeal bread, but it didn’t taste like it! The texture was very similar to madeira cake but it wasn’t quite as heavy, it tasted really nice and we really liked the texture as it was lighter than madeira cake but was still quite filling. There was no horrible coating or greasy aftertaste, it left a nice taste of orange in your mouth.

We all really enjoyed this and would definitely buy it again.
