Asda Pabs The Pug Gift Cake Review

I have a huge sweet tooth and I am always on the lookout for the cutest cakes, biscuits and any other sweet treats. I thought that I should start reviewing this here as a kind of switch up between mostly beauty posts. Hopefully these reviews will help you to decide what sweet treat to go for and none of these posts from this series is sponsored, it's just that I genuinely want to review them and of course I paid for these too! So now on to the review!

A p p e a r a n c e:

Ok so this may be the cutest ever gift cake you will ever see! The cake comes in a pretty pastel blue box. The fondant pieces used really makes this look like the sweetest pug ever! The fondant colours are spot on and this would definitely catch your eye in the cake aisle. Though gift cakes are supposed to be small, for the price, this seems a bit on the smaller side of things. This costed £4 and is said to have six servings but if you have a sweet tooth like myself, it would more likely be four servings ^^ haha!

T a s t e:

I really liked this cake. It really reminded me of the same taste as those fondant birthday cakes you would find at kid's parties and I'm not complaining. The fondant is also chocolate flavoured which I wasn't expecting. I thought that the fondant was only coloured and have no flavour so that was a nice touch. The sponge is soft and you can definitely taste the vanilla, there is also the right amount of jam and buttercream. Surprisingly it's not too sweet either which is great! One slice is definitely not enough ^^ 

Q u a l i t y:

Overall this is a pretty good cake, from the decorations to the taste of the sponge and fondant. It will look great at any party or as a gift. I think this is one gift cake you need to buy and try. A really flavourful cake that's super cute and is something I would definitely buy again. My overall rating 9/10, 9 because of the size but otherwise it was a fabulous cake!

  1. You have such a pretty blog by the way! Personally I would love to see the odd foodie review, I enjoy that sort of thing, and this post was great. The cake looks so cute too, it was my birthday not long ago and my Dad bought us a lovely cake by Aldi, and the taste wasn’t too sweet. Asda do some great deals, and your photos are making me seriously hungry! Have a good week! :-) xx
