My 6 year old son instantly recognised the Gormiti characters on the cake when it arrived and was most impressed we had a cake with them on. I've never heard of them though!
Since the cake had quite a long best before date on (2 weeks from when we received it) we decided to save it for a family gathering the following week so everyone could try it!
It was very easy to get out of the box and remove the cardboard edging. All the children were very excited to try it,although one family member expressed concern at the amount of brightly coloured icing! The cake was very easy to cut although the bottom layer of sponge didn't remain stuck to the cake and broke off seperately on almost every piece.The sponge itself was quite dry, especially the bottom sponge, and although we had stored the cake for a week before eating, there was still another 6 days before the best before date so I was a little disappointed by this. The jam and buttercream icing were a big hit, as was the outer icing and sugar decoration.
I thought the retail price was suitable and consistent with other birthday cakes on the market. It easily fed 14 people and quite generously.
The children (especially the boys) thought the cake looked great and tasted nice. None of the adults had heard of Gormiti so were't quite as enthusiastic at the appearance, although the cake was well presented. The taste of the actual sponge and the icing was nice and sweet and typical of a shop bought birthday cake - the only disappointment being that the sponge was quite dry.
I would buy this cake again although I would aim to buy it nearer the time I was going to use it to ensure optimal freshness.() out of 5
