Halloween Magic Pumpkin Surprise Cake (Aldi) By @Cinabar

We were doing our weekly shop and spotted this fantastic looking cake on the shelf. It is a Halloween Magic Pumpkin Surprise Cake, and not only looks fantastic, it has a aforementioned surprise filling too. As we were sharing a seasonal lunch with friends and family we picked one up to try out. I didn’t need much of an excuse, or any to be fair, the second I saw it I knew this cake was coming home with us!
After our lunch we decided to cut in, it felt like a shame as it is such a fine looking pumpkin cake. The lines on the bright pumpkin helped mark slices, and inside was revealed a lovely vanilla sponge layered with buttercream and jam, and the best bit was the fantastic spilling out of all the candy coated chocolate drops, this couldn’t help but put a smile on your face and it was a complete crowd pleaser.

The cake itself was wonderfully moist and sweet, and the fruity jam added a nice balance to the flavour. The icing wasn’t too thick, but it was lovely and sweet too and everyone enjoyed the cake. I was really pleased this cake wasn’t just all about the design and it delivered fantastic flavour too. I enjoyed munching on the chocolate drops too afterwards. I think if you are looking for a cake as a treat this Halloween, you can’t go wrong with this Halloween Magic Pumpkin Surprise Cake.
