Smith Island Baking Co. 9" Large Original Chocolate Layer Cake is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moist and Chocolaty Arrived quickly. Was packaged very well and still retained dry ice. Cake was frozen and I popped it in my freezer till needed. After one month, I removed cake from freezer, defrosted it over night in my refrigerator. Used it for a birthday that evening (27 hours after removing from freezer). The cake was wrapped in cellophane and a waxed paper band around it to secure the sides. I removed both, a little icing stuck to waxed band. I used an offset spatula to reapply icing to scarred side and smoothed it over with spatula dipped in water. The cake was perfect. The cake texture was moist and vanilla flavored. The chocolate icing was rich, smoothly creamy, and deep flavored. This cake is very rich and good. I knew the cake would be very rich so I cut thin slices and everyone was very pleased with taste and texture of the cake. They couldn’t believe it had been frozen. The eight layers of cake and eight layers of icing were all equal in height and dimension. It is a beautiful cake uncut and sliced. Because the cake is so rich, cutting thin slices, it feeds quite a lot of people. I would say at least 16-20. I would highly recommend it to anyone and I will order it again (for MY birthday).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Good Cake When I first cut into this I was apprehensive. To be honest it looked a little dry and unappetizing. Totally wrong, it is a decadent delicious cake, the sponge itself has a delightful delicate flavor, and is light and airy. The filling has just the right amount of sweetness, allowing the fruit flavor to pop. The chocolate coating is the perfect finishing touch, nice high quality 'milk' chocolate, very rich and just thick enough not to overwhelm either the sponge or the filling. It was easy to cut when frozen, allowing us to take only two slices at a time, returning the rest to the freezer. Absolutely delighted with this purchase. Will definitely purchase another, and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good chocolate cake, and has a large freezer!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A crumbled mess I’m so upset that I shipped this overpriced dried out cake out to my brother for his 60th birthday. Here I am thinking you get what you pay for and I wanted him to have a really special birthday cake while in quarantine. Well, when I asked him how it was, he said I loved the sentiment but the cake sucked. It fell apart and crumbled, which means it was dried out and old.. Shame on you for not having quality control. Thank you QVC for doing the right thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seriously Overpriced!!!! After reading the reviews, I really thought this cake would be worth the exorbitant price, since it was going to be my birthday cake. Boy, was I wrong!! The cake was dry and the icing was only so-so in flavor, with only a scimpy amount used between layers. I have had a home-made chocolate fudge layer cake before, which was out of this world amazing, and this tasted like a box cake with canned icing. I have actually had boxed cakes that tasted better than this cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!! Arrived frozen solid took 24 hrs to thaw. When it finally did thaw it was perfect. My husband loves these layer cakes but they are a nightmare to make. The chocolate didn't overwhelm the yellow cake. Holds up great and looks perfect after cutting. I am going to order another one closer to Christmas. I sent one to my Bachelor Uncle and am sending one to my daughter. Share the love

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My order took 6 days to get to me, no fault of QVC. UPS shipped it to a wrong location, and when it finally arrived, it was a big gooey mess. I would have loved to taste this, it looked delicious. May I suggest a smaller version of this cake for future, as it's only 2 of us in my household? Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smith Island Chocolate Cake - Yummy! We had this Smith Island 9" Chocolate Layer Cake for Easter dessert. Wow was it yummy. Just the correct amount of chocolate icing between the thin layers of yellow cake. We all enjoyed it. I would order this cake again as long as there are enough people to eat it, as it is a large cake.
