Thorntons Large Toffee Cake
Advantages: It tastes gorgeous!
Disadvantages: The calories lol!
On my Dads birthday last year my mum came home with the most delicious toffee cake by thorntons, whilst shopping in Asda the other day I seen it again and I really could not resist trying it again. I love it that much I'm buying it for my mums 40th birthday in 2weeks time, for her of course lol!
The cake isn't the largest, but for how it tastes you can't complain about price nor size, it costs in the region of £2.50 - £3. It comes in a cardboard box with a see through window on the top so you can see the cake within. There are also extremely appetising pictures of the cake scattered on the box too. The cake on the box is explained as a luxury moist toffee flavoured sponge filled with toffee flavoured buttercream and thorntons toffee sauce covered in thorntons milk chocolate and decorated with thorntons mini fudge cubes. Yes it tastes as delicious as it sounds.
100g of this cake contains;
25.5g fat of which
It contains Milk, Soya, Eggs, Gluten Wheat and it also may contain nut traces.
Something so highly calorific has got to taste good though right, I mean it has to be worth it ... well guess it what it mostly definitely is!
It's the most luxurious, indulgent toffee cake I've ever ate. Rich and tasty, yet not sickly (unless you eat too much) and cheapy sweet. You can taste the good quality in each individual layer as well as being able to see each layer clearly to. The sponge itself is moist and soft, it crumbles as you bite into it yet melts in your mouth so scrumptiously to. The sponge now and then is broken up with a smooth, creamyness, sweet and velvety toffee taste which is the buttercream yet you have a more delicate, sweet taste in the actual toffee sauce. The chocolate surrounding this soft, light and airy toffee sponge is not your typical icing, this is actual thorntons chocolate, a decent thickness yet not too thick that it takes over flavourwise. It's smooth, rich and deliciously creamy. You soon bite into the chunky, fudge cubes on top which just melt in the warmth of your mouth.
This cake is truly gorgeous, if you do eat too much it does become a little sickly though as it is a very sweet tasting cake, but if ate in moderation it is absolutely stunning to eat, an incredibly tasty treat for your tastebuds that's for sure. For the price and the brand it is brilliant, a real indulgent treat now and then.
Summary: A gorgeous cake from thorntons!
