Ivory & Pink Ruffle Madeira Cake
Very Disappointing Cake
I ordered this cake for my twin daughters birthday and instead of continuing the second name around the cake it was squeezed in at the bottom - everyone commented about how ridiculous it looked and it seemed as if her name was added on as an afterthought! I mentioned this when I collected the cake and was told the bakers do what they want and Marks and Spencer have no say in it. The icing was far too thick and was left by everyone - the sponge was okay but not as good as cakes bought from other shops. This will be the last occasion cake I order from Marks and Spencer.

Having purchased this for a family birthday celebration, I was very disappointed at the quality-not what I expected from M & S. The cake looked as shown, although the icing was lumpy in places and the petals were unevenly coloured. However, when the cake was cut the icing separated completely from the cake and was very thick - far too thick to eat with each portion that was served. The sponge was a little dry but had a reasonable flavour.
Overall, an unsatisfactory purchase

Cake looked gorgeous and tasted really good, very elegant. Bought this for my daughter's birthday. Would buy again.

Very embarrassed customer....
I bought this cake for my parents 35th Wedding Anniversary celebrations.
The icing was so thick on one side and thin on the other and separated from the sponge when cut, so there was a mess on the plate.
The family that had the thick part of the icing left it on their plates.
I was very embarrassed as I had arranged it and no one believed it was from Marks and Spencer.
My last two orders from M & S food have been disappointing.
