M23299 - Paula Deen's 3.25 lb. Holiday Peppermint Layer Cake
I ordered this cake for this past Christmas dinner. It arrived in great shape and everyone thought the flavor was great. In fact, there was no cake left at the end of the day. The cake was not burnt and the peppermint flavor was just right. I plan on ordering this again next Christmas. Keep up the good work Paula!
Makes an impressive gift
I had this cake shipped to my elderly aunt and uncle as a Christmas surprise. They said it was yummy and beautiful! They were impressed because it was a Paula Deen cake!
This cake was for my birthday. I was so disappointed! The outside of the cake was burnt. There was red from the peppermints running all over the top of the cake. The cake had virtually no flavor except for burnt! We ended up throwing a $45 cake into the trash! No, Happy Birthday for me! :(
I wanted to like this cake, but it was not very good. Nobody at our Christmas dinner liked it. I ate only the inside. Something about the peppermint taste was just not good. I wanted to send it back, but it is way to much trouble to send perishable items back. Just tossed 40.00+ dollars in the garbage. Sorry Paula Deen, I still love you!!
I was so disappointed with the cake when I cut into it. The outside edges of all layers are burnt, or very overly done, almost black. The cake to the inside is great, but no one ate the outside of their piece because of the burnt sides.
I ordered this cake to have on Christmas Day for dessert. Not one person liked it.
The cake was extremely dry, the icing not at all buttery smooth. It did have the
peppermint flavor thats for sure, but overall I was very unhappy with the cake. Had
expected much better for Paula Deen and a $40.00 cake.
Best Christmas Cake
I'm so glad I ordered this cake. It is wonderful. It's moist and the frosting is so yummy. Not greasy at all. It has just the right amount of peppermint flavor. It's not overpowering. My husband loved it, too, which says a lot! It was still frozen when it arrived and we kept it frozen until Christmas day. Took it out of the freezer that morning and it was perfectly thawed by mid afternoon.
This cake is so good, I could not stop eating it. The texture and taste are very high quality, and peppermint taste is not overwhelming. This is the second year that I am purchasing this cake.
