Rated 1 out of 5 by lambr53 Loved the cinnamon rolls but...
These "cakes" were so tasteless I still have 15 individual cakes in the freezer. Where Jimmy's cinnamon rolls were so fantastic I could have used 30 rolls per month or more; these crumb cakes have no flavor. My children (ages 36, 42, & 44) think I should send both Jimmy and QVC a cake so similar to the cinnamon crumb cakes except mine have flavor when you take a bite of cake. I agree with the many other viewers who purchased the apple cake - where were the apples? Mine definitely did not look the same when split open to show the "huge" amount of apples as the cakes did when presented in a show segment. If the amount if apples were doubled before being baked,
I think that would be about perfect for each square of cake. Break out the real vanilla extract, add some additional cinnamon sugar for the cinnamon crumb cakes and in addition to the extra apples, try some real vanilla extract and cinnamon sugar swirled throughout both flavors of crumb cakes. It never hurts to try or add something new or increase an ingredient once or twice when baking a familiar item so frequently. I just thought of an idea - if you could put additional apples in containers as you do the icing, then those that liked more apples could top their cake off with more apples. I know I would pay the little extra to have more flavor.

The crumb is too much and the cake is not enough! Not a good mix!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kitties3 Disappointed this time
I have had these before and they were delicious. This time they were very dry, could not taste or see the cinnamon filling. There was no powdered sugar on the crumbs. Crumbs had not taste. And each crumb cake was much smaller than my last shipment. I am really disappointed. QVC did give me a refund and I brought the cakes to Christ's Table.

Cake part is delicious except no apples in the apple ones. Topping on both is a very thick layer of what looks like big clumps of pure brown sugar and too much cinnamon. They are also way too big for one portion.

My batch of the apple cakes had very little apple in it. I have not been disappointed by other Jimmy the Baker products, but will not order this again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by babe-e-sister JIMMY PLEASE READ THIS
I ORDERED THESE YUMMIE YUMMIE CRUMB CAKES IN MARCH ON AUTO-DELIVERY & WAS THRILLED WITH THE QUALITY, TASTE, & TEXTURE OF THESE INDIVIDUAL CRUMB CAKES. THEY WERE THE BEST CAKES I'VE EVER HAD, TRULY!
HOWEVER, JIMMY, THE NEXT AUTO-DELIVERY I RECEIVED WAS NOT THE SAME CONSISTENCY AS THE FIRST ORDER. THEY'RE STILL YUMMY, BUT THE CAKES WERE OVER-BAKED & HAD A 'BURNT' TASTE TO THEM; THEY WEREN'T AS MOIST AS BEFORE. DON'T KNOW IF YOU LEFT THEM A BIT LONGER IN THE OVEN, BUT I FEEL YOU NEED TO KNOW TO REVIEW QUALITY CONTROL ON THE BAKING OF THESE. I DID KEEP THIS 'BAD' SHIPMENT JUST THE SAME. BUT I AM ANXIOUSLY AWAITING THE NEXT SHIPMENT ON AUTO-DELIVERY IN THE FALL & AM HOPING THIS WILL BE THE SAME QUALITY AS MY 1ST ORDER. IF NOT, I MAY HAVE TO CANCEL AUTO-DELIVERY & I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT....I LOVE THESE CAKES! PLEASE MAKE THESE RIGHT AGAIN. THANKS, YOU'RE THE BESTEST BAKER EVER!

It was all cinnamon, hardly could taste or see any apples and the dough was not good either. Really disappointed in this product.

I was disjointed in the one that was supposed to have Apple in it thought maybe they made a mistake and sent all of the cinnamon but no ...I canceled my auto delivery I liked the taste but thought you can buy the crumb any where.......
