I have previously written about Raspberry Ripple Slices and Tutti Fruitti pies, this is the last of the ice cream themed Kipling creations.
Like the ice cream, there are three predominate flavours in these Bakewells, a bright pink strawberry icing, a soft vanilla sponge and a layer of chocolate sauce. There is also an extra cube of chocolate icing neatly decorating the top of the cake. These three flavours combine, like the ice cream, to give a very sweet wonderful taste concoction. The strawberry icing is definitely the main flavour, with the chocolate flavour following through, and the vanilla sponge adding just a hint of sweetness at the end. The pastry is good too; soft full flavoured and easy to eat, but I’d expect nothing less from Mr Kipling!
All in all a very pleasant cake, and good for those with a sweet tooth. They are bright and pretty, and I think these would go down wonderfully well at a Summer children’s birthday party.
