If there is one thing I love more than chocolate its cake. I can make fairly decent little cakes at home, but I have never mastered a large cake as well as the supermarkets dish out. I will always buy large cakes from the supermarket for this reason, and also the jam and cream mix they put in some cakes are so much better than any mix I have been able to create. I'll admit to loving a nice cream and jam sponge, and have tried many different varieties over the years. The other day I decided to try the Sainsbury's basics raspberry sponge cake as it was half the price of their own label one. At only 46p for a whole cake I wasn't sure I could go wrong, even the ...

It was my granddaughters tenth birthday this week, we went out for a meal on the day and as she was staying with me for the weekend I decided to put together a small buffet for Sunday lunch so she had the best of both worlds really. In Sainsbury's while shopping for party food I spotted a Raspberry Sponge as part of their Basics range, yes it came in an awful box but I'd be serving it on a plate so for 46p I thought I'd give it a try. After all if it proved to be awful then I was certain my neighbours greedy Labrador would give it a very grateful home! For your money you get a smallish cake which as a pudding would serve four, but as I was serving it as ... Read the complete review

Background: Like most people I have been affected by the downturn in the economy. So I have been experimenting with several 'cheaper alternatives' from the Sainsbury's basics range. This week I tried the raspberry sponge. Price: 46p I was very impressed with the cost of this product especially as I usually pay between £2 and £3 for a cake. It did make me a little suspicious, how could a cake be made so cheaply? I'm sure I would find the answer. Packaging: I have just leant what to look for in the Basic's range they have a similar packaging style on all the range. This one is in a white rectangular box, which is surprisingly solid. It ...

My Step-dad is currently working away from home all week and comes back only for weekends at the moment. Why do I tell you this I hear you think? Well 'cos every Friday I'm in charge of getting a cake or some scones or something in as a treat to make him feel right back at home. He is a total brand snob and wouldn't even out of curiosity eat a value or basic product knowingly. He won't even eat stuff that is reduced due to say a dented tin or a label peeling off or something and won't eat reduced food if it's going out of date. He eats and drinks the best and I usually get a rather expensive cake in as a treat. However the week before last week I did this and ... Read the complete review
