I was just taking a look around reading and rating when I happened upon the food section, and more specifically the cakes. Now I do like a nice piece of cake and I tend not to be too fussy Ė if itís got lots of calories itís OK by me! By the way I do know that, as a diabetic, I have to be careful so I do make cakes a treat not a daily indulgence! There is, however, one cake I canít stand and thatís Battenberg Ė I canít be doing with marzipan you see. It was one of my late dadís favourites so I used to buy it for him even though I didnít personally indulge. I have even had a go at making it for him too, and it wasnít a bad effort even if I do say so ... Read the complete review

Battenburg Cake has always struck me as quite an odd concept. I mean, who thought up the idea of using the different colours and different ingredients with their individual, very unsimilar tastes? But that aside, fortunately for us consumers whoever it was got lucky and the combination works. The Battenburg Cake, of German descent, is essentially 4 thin rectangles of sponge cake, 2 yellow and 2 pink with the colours arranged diagonally, stuck together with apricot job then coated with a thin layer of marzipan to created a cuboidal shaped cake that can be easily sliced into square shaped pieces for eating. [NB Not suitable for nut allergy suffers due to the ... Read the complete review

-LYONS BATTENBERG - Lyons has been making cakes for over 100 years now. With varieties such as: The French Sandwich - Lemon Curd Tarts - Trifle Sponges - Carrot Cakes and Treacle Lattice Tart we certainly are spoilt for choice. My favourite however, has to be their scrumptious Battenberg cake. I absolutely adore marzipan. I could eat tons of the stuff; I have a real passion for it. When I was pregnant with my middle daughter, it was my 'craving' and I hate to think how much of it I ate then. Anyway, anything which contains marzipan is a firm favourite with me. - Battenberg cake or 'Window cake', is quite an original concept for this little slab of ... Read the complete review

I haven't had Battenberg in ages but brought one of these Lyons ones when they was on special offer in Morrisons and only cost 79p. It's a rectangle cake that is made of pink and yellow sponge cake, they're joined together with jam and then the cake is wrapped in marzipan. It's a bit of a boring cake but it's fun to eat and the marzipan makes it taste loads more special than a plain sponge cake. The pink and yellow sponge both taste the same and are coloured just to look pretty when the cake is put together. You've got a bit of a fruity taste and that's the jam, I think it's apricot jam because it's got that sort of taste and isn't the same sort ... Read the complete review

I really love cake! I love sweet cakes as well which means in my house (I live with my parents at the moment) I have to buy it because no one else is a fan of this type of thing which isn't so bad really because at least it means I get to stuff myself silly with these types of products lol. I saw this on offer yesterday in my local Asda store at the special offer price of 99p a cake however it is usually round the £1.49 price mark and widely available in all sorts of places. The Packaging.... The Bright yellow cake sits on a cardboard tray at the bottom of it and that contains all the information on it you may possible need. The rest of ... Read the complete review
