Woolworths Caramel mud cake

Posted by Linda on 20. 2012 0 comments
Here's another cake bought from the Woolworths supermarket, I was feeling a little down the other day so my mum bought this caramel mud cake from the supermarket to cheer me up during her last grocery trip.

I had the cake chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours prior so the icing & the texture of the cake had harden when I took it out, and as you can see in the first photo above, the icing was a little wet on the surface while it was thawing though, but I didn't care much about that.
The caramel icing/frosting was thick and enriched with sweet caramel, and there was more sweet caramel flavor infused into the cake itself. The cake wasn't particularly moist, but at least the texture was not as dry as the chocolate block cake that I had bought for my mum's birthday last month which was also made by the same supermarket. So at least this was an improvement in the execution of their cakes. However, the star of the show for me is once again the icing, which is like a double-edge sword in cake reviews, like I mentioned before, when it comes to cakes, the cake itself should be the star of the show, not the icing. I mean, you wouldn't buy a cake just for the icing, and when you have a smashingly great cake, often there's no need for the icing. So of course the cake should be the star of the show that carries the cake through. Although I will admit that the texture of this cake was without a doubt better than the chocolate block cake at least, however, the texture still wasn't quite as moist as I would've wanted it to be, but the taste was good though. However like I emphasized before, the caramel icing was undoubtfully the star that completely outshined the cake itself, the icing was just so thick and rich and sweet with beautiful caramel flavor.
Overall this caramel mud cake was good, but not great, the texture of the cake was softer and more moist than the chocolate block cake, but the bakers at Woolworths supermarket still could've improved on it, the caramel icing was really the main star of this cake for me.
I think my mum liked this cake just a bit more than I did.

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
