I bought this cake for my daughters 3rd birthday; she was so pleased when we bought it out with the candles lit on her birthday.
The cake comes in a plastic protective dome, which I think is a well thought out piece of packaging which keeps the cake intact.
The cake itself, if I remember right was delicious, it was a lovely soft moist sponge covered in a sweet pink soft icing sugar with lovely little flower icing treats on top.
She still has the three little plastic princess figures which came on top of the cake and plays with them alongside Disney characters which we bought her from the Disney shop.
I think this cake makes a nice change from the average birthday cake which usually has flat printed icing pictures or flat iced characters on top.
Like I said, I purchased this cake when my daughter was 3, therefore I think the design may have changed just slightly since then but I would recommend it for any little princess's birthday treat.
Im not sure on the exact dimensions of the cake, however it is about the size of a dinner plate (a little bigger than the average sized flat iced character ones.) You can get a generous amount of servings out of it.
They still do this cake in Asda for £7.96, which I think is fantastic value when you compare it to the cost of a cake made at a bakers.
Every time my gorgeous little niece keira goes to ASDA she asks to go and look at the birthday cakes and every time she announces loudly that she will have a princess cake on her birthday. Being the baby of the family, shes a bit spoiled so on her big day a disney princess cake was the centrepiece of the table.
This cake looks magnificent. Inside the plastic dome is a pink masterpiece of a cake. Three of the Disney princesses stand atop the cake in their ballgowns. For those of you who are lucky enough not to live in a world populated by pre school girls, the three princesses featured are Cinderella, Belle and Sleeping Beauty. Parents hate them and their cynical marketing ploys but little girls cant get enough of their saccharine sweetness.
The party went well, a nice mix of little and big kids and their parents had assembled to celebrate the big day. Because it was a lovely sunny day the kids played happily in the sun on a bouncy castle and with water pistols while us grown ups gathered and gossiped around the barbeque.
Then it was time to go in and cut the cake. An overexcited Keira, dressed in her Disney Belle dress, took a very unprincess like swipe at a little boy who dared to try and touch HER cake! After the candles were blown out it was time to take the princess ornaments off the cake and Keira shared them out. She kept the Sleeping Beauty one for herself as it had blonde hair like her, gave the Belle one to her big sister as she has brown hair and a fight broke out over the third one. Oh dear.
We decided to try and distract a pile of grumpy kids from the fight by cutting the cake and giving them some sugar. The cake gave around 16 generous sized slices which were passed around the room and guzzled in silence. I think all of us parents will have spent a fortune on a character cake at some point only to have been disapointed by dry sponge and sickly icing so how does this one compare? I can honestly say that the cake tasted lovely. The sponge was lovely and soft and moist with a thick layer of gooey jam and buttercream inside. The topping of the cake is hard to describe. It looked like very pink piped icing and had a lovely taste, someone likened it to Angel Delight but I didnt think it tasted like that. It had a nice sweetness without being sickly and the kids loved the little love heart sweeties sprinkled over the top. The bottom of the cake had a very thin layer of white chocolate over it which also added a lovely taste and texture to the cake.
Now the kids were happy again so we sent them back outside to enjoy their sugar and pink food colouring induced high. It wasnt long before the little boy from earlier had been squashed by two big kids rolling down the hill in a pink inflatable so with tears all round it was time to call an end to the party.
This cake costs £9.99 from ASDA and is and ideal cake for little princesses on their birthday.
For the Disney Princess in your life.
