Thornton’s Chocolate Cake (Sainsbury’s)

And now for a treat, oddly enough purchased from Sainsbury’s but I suspect also stocked in Thornton’s itself!

This cake consists of three layers of chocolate sponge, with a chocolate cream in between each, and coated in milk chocolate. Decorating the top are five Thornton’s chocolates.

The sponge is lovely and moist, and the chocolate in the cream filling is sweet and creamy and compliments the cake well. The milk chocolate coating is a good quality milk chocolate, and cracks satisfyingly when you dig the fork in. Lovely.

In fact the only negative comment that I have on this cake is that when it was being sliced up, it became apparent that there weren’t enough chocolates on top to go around, you really want one per slice!
