Chris202009 Brilliant birthday cake My son loves this cake. Tastes well l. Only thing is it could not provide his name on and it is too expensive compared with previous similar birthday cake ordered in M&S.

KldSW19 Fun and delicious chocolate cake Delicious cake. Our 9 year old son said it was the best cake ever! I think it was the added fun of finding the dinosaur which gave it an extra sparkle!

Redrobins Tasted nice but poorly put together Tasted pretty good - no issues there. But it came with a little damage: side fence panel coming away from cake, some fence posts wonky that deformed the surrounding ganache, ‘Danger’ sign pushed over and the dinosaur was missing a limb. We raised with M&S who provided a little compensation but obviously having collected it to order, unless it’s smashed to bits, you have to use it as there’s no plan B! In our view, because of the random damage it was unlikely caused in transit (the box was also perfectly fine) but prior to being put in the box. It shouldn’t have been dispatched.

OldHarrington Delicious cake We bought this cake for my dinosaur-mad son’s 5th birthday party. He loved finding the fossil and we all loved the cake. Sometimes kids birthday cakes are sickly sweet and cheap tasting but this was really lovely quality.

SBand Wonderful and really yummy cake This is such a big hit in my son's birthday party. most importantly it was so tasty. Very fast chocolate cake. We all loved the cake and my son was so happy with the cake.

Ozzypac Perfect for Dino lovers My son and his friends slurped this cake within minutes:)) they said soooo delicious. I could not find a chance to taste it. Also Dino fossils decorations melted my son’s hearth. He loved the cake.

Kimcats Fun and delicious Bought this cake for my daughter who loves dinosaurs and doing excavations. She loved it. Cake is really delicious. It has a very thick layer of chocolate frosting on top which is delish but others might find a little bit sickly depending on preference. The chocolate cake itself is really lovely probably the best shop bought chocolate cake I’ve ever had.

12 So much fun This is an amazing cake all the kids were fascinated by the soil and excavating the dinosaur. A real show stopper. Tasted great as well

Lisa1234509876 Great fun, awful icing Our little boy loves dinosaurs and loved excavating dinosaur bones from edible soil with the brush that was provided. However, unusually for us, we found the cake and icing tasteless and the icing very slimy. We’re big fans of M&S cakes but this one has been sitting in our kitchen for days with no one (including our two children) willing to have another slice! Maybe a bad batch given the other reviews.

BushBooby Fun for Anyone!! I bought this cake for my 51 year old mum. She loved dusting for the fossil! We re-arranged the dust afterwards, so that I could have a go at dusting for the fossil, too! We got a quality dusting brush, with dense, soft bristles, made in Germany. The cake is really rich, and we struggled to get through it between the two of us. I would not say it serves 28, but perhaps 14. The decoration was fabulous, as well as tasty. Thick chocolate fences, and chewy icing rocks. The little blades of grass, made of buttercream type icing, were really pretty. The icing was plentiful throughout the cake, and the cake was soft and moist. Not dry, like most store bought cakes. There was a real handmade feel about this one. It's nice that you get to arrange the chocolate "soil" yourself, too. You have to experience this cake to know how fun it is! Completely recommended! I would buy it again. Total showstopper.

Becca N Fab! Fab cake! Bought for an adult (as adults love dinos too!) and was a real crowd pleaser. Serves more than 28 and tasted great! Enjoyed dusting off the ‘mud’ as opposed to blowing out candles. Well worth the cost!

VickyC3320 Amazing Cake Amazing Cake!! this cake was so tasty. It was light and really smooth. Not too sickly (i normally find chocolate cake overpowering) everybody loved it. It was also such fun do do. My son loves anything dino and this was something exciting to do after he blew out his candle! Highly recommend

Justanotherboymum Yummiest cake ever!!!! Highly recommend Highly recommend this cake, it was delicious the best chocolate cake I have ever had in my life, it was delicious and moist and the attention to detail was excellent, My son loved it and said it was the best thing about his birthday, the kids loved having to uncover the fossil with the brush, whoever came up with that was a genius, I loved the cake and savoured every bit, highly highly recommend it especially if you have a dinosaur lover like me. Everything about the cake stood out, from the decorations all around the cake that tasted of caramel, to the chocolate fingers and the icing decoration, it was delicious and moist and it went down a treat. The best chocolate cake ever and I don’t say that lightly!!!

null Sons 5th birthday Everyone commented on how nice this cake was, was lovely and moist and also detail was brilliant, even with a little brush for the chocolate dusting

JenK22 Looked brilliant & tasted great. Would recommend Excellent cake-perfect for birthday party. Lots of compliments!

Sian e Interesting birthday cake Nice sized cake loved the caramac border moist sponge Great novelty feature

Chunks47 Yummy & fun cake This was a lovely fun cake & it tasted yummy & the design looked great, a clever idea. Not too sweet. Would recommend for both young & older birthdays, my son 22 loved it !! Didn’t eat it all in 1 day & although not recommended, we kept it covered in the fridge for about a week & it still tasted yummy & didn’t dry out at all, which is useful.

SaJBu Great cake Such a great cake, looked amazing, the finding the fossil on top was really fun for the birthday boy, and it was delicious!

Laura BG Love this cake This cake was a massive hit for my son, his friends and all of us lucky adults who got a cheeky piece. It is a really rich chocolatey cake. Would definetly buy again and recommend. It provided a fun interactive element when the children got to dig for the bones and use the brush to get the chocolate sand off the bones. Brilliant cake and idea.

SV N Great cake! Great looking cake & super delicious. We received a lot of compliments. Everyone loved it.
