Mmmm......Cherry Bakewells. I really fancy some at this precise moment, so I have just asked my boyfriend to get some for me on his way home. I will make sure the kettle has boiled for his return. I can't wait. I guess I will continue the opinion once I have eaten them ~ it will not be any good otherwise. Well I'll see you all in about an hour.

<><><><><><><><><><>

I'm back and my tummy is filled, so I am ready to tell you about these delicious little cakes.

Cherry Bakewells are made by Mr Kipling, who you all know 'makes exceedingly good cakes'. A statement I must fully agree with. The Mr Kipling brand make a wide range of cakes, and most, if not all, are individual.

~What Are They?~
Cherry Bakewells consist of a small individual pastry case filled with fruit jam and almond flavoured cake. This is then finished with a layer of fondant icing and a half cherry to top it off. Each cake is about 6.5 cm in diameter and a couple of cms deep.

~Packaging~
You buy these in packs of six. Each individual cake comes in its own foil case. These sit in a plastic tray which slides out of the box. This is covered with a clear plastic wrapper. The box is made of cardboard and is just strong enough to hold the cakes. It has a clear window on the top of the box, in the middle so you can see inside.

~Taste~
Cherry Bakewells, or indeed any form of bakewell has a very almondy taste, and this is probably the most prominent flavour. It is quite an overpowering taste so if you do not like it, it would be wise to stay away. Its not so strong that you can not taste anything else though. The jam adds a nice fruit taste to it. It does not state what flavour the jam is but I think it is some berry flavour. The white icing is nice and sweet. There is just enough to add that sweetness, but not too much to make them sickly. The cherry on top is a pleasant addition, and makes them look good.

~My Views~
The are aesthetically pleasing. The cherry makes them quite appealing and the seem to remind me of my childhood. I like the taste of bakewells and bakewell tart, and it makes a change from other cakes on the market. The size of each one is pretty good. Plenty for one person, although I can quite easily eat two. The box design is nothing amazing but cake boxes generally are not. Overall I would give a definite thumbs up.

~Extra Information~
For a box of six Cherry Bakewells I paid £1.25 in Safeway. You can buy them from most other supermarkets.

This product contains egg, milk, soya and wheat.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your cakes, Sarah :)
