I was so pleased we did not have to miss an opportunity intended for London bloggers, as frankly I love cake (it keeps me calm in any parenting crisis!). Despite living in North Wales I scheduled a trip especially so not to miss out… okay hands up I was in the area anyway to review Lollibop for Poppy Cat and the PR kindly sent it to my friend’s house so we could still eat cake!
And boy did we need some decent cake after hiking around London to the Zoo, a duck tour and the Lollibop festival. With energy levels severely depleted and given the heat I thought we would pass out at any moment. Luckily the cake was so easy to make, that the hardest part was resisting the delicious smell coming from the oven and letting it bake in peace…
Half-Baked Cake has an RRP of £5 and is worth every penny! The Farmhouse Apple Cake was scrumptious. I had planned to take a photograph of a slice of the cake on a plate accompanied by a nice beverage but it was wolfed down by everyone at record speed! You can however enjoy a lovely picture of the cake prior to consumption.
It can be heartbreaking if you slave over your home baking for hours, getting the kitchen in a jolly good mess, to create a masterpiece, which is polished off far too quickly, fortunately you have no such reservations with Half-Baked Cake. You spread on the apple and sultana mix on to the base, place cake in the oven and wait to cook, it really is that simple. Then drizzle some icing on top when cooled and hey presto you have a deceptionally tasty home baked cake that no one would think could possibly come from a packet!
You can find out more from the website, I readily admit I lingered too long over the other variants on there. I think the PR has just whetted my appetite sending one cake, now I NEED to try some more! Heads off to Tesco.
