Bake & Cake – Looks Can Be Deceiving

We’ve been past Bake & Cake many times and one cold, wet Friday evening, we seized the opportunity and finally popped-in.

We visited the Bake & Cake store in Kilburn but there are two other locations in London; Ealing & Marylebone.

Double Chocolate Cake

The OH chose the double chocolate cake and as delicious as this looked, it was disappointing. The cake was very dry and bland. Being a double chocolate cake, it didn’t taste very much of chocolate.

Strawberry Cheesecake

I went for the strawberry cheesecake and again this was flavourless! It was a little better than the chocolate cake however the strawberry cheesecake was more like strawberry angel delight on crushed-up biscuit. The texture was light and mousse-like and wrong for a cheesecake. What happened to the creamy texture?

Bake & Cake was truly shocking I wasn’t expecting the desserts to be this bad. The store also provides a cake ordering service for special occasions such as birthdays and weddings. I assumed a service as established as this couldn’t have been so terrible, but I was wrong. Looks can definitely be deceiving.
