What Halloween Cake Is Your Favourite??

Hey everyone :)

So it's nearly Halloween ... (and also pay-day) and so it's time for my yearly cake post.

If I'm honest I nearly forgot about Halloween and was tossing various Christmas cake items into my basket until I saw the Halloween ones ... (I blame working too much - I don't even know what day it is).

Anyway ... I chose 6 from Tesco that I could find - these were mostly all on special and cost me about £1 for each (so not bad).

Very strong taste of lime ... I know they are 'chocolate and lime' flavoured but I found them to be slightly over-powering. The chocolate topping was rather thick and had an unusual taste but still nice.

I have to admit the flavour does remind me of 'cinder toffee' - that bad that its making me want to go find/buy some cinder toffee! I wasn't expecting that consistency though - more a thin, caramel sauce.

Very similar to the normal all year round item but they have little white stencils of bats, skulls and ghosts which give it the Halloween-ey theme. I love this version of the biscuit - as its more a digestive type rather than a shortbread type.

I tried something similar to this from the Christmas line last year (think it was the gingerbread whirl) and it was amazing! This was great too - it's like a white vanilla buttercream and toffee sauce with two shortbread-type biscuits.

These are a Halloween version of the normal 'fancies' that we have all year round - which to be honest I wasn't really a fan - they just are sickly and odd (yes weird opinion). These are much different - orange flavoured sponge (not too strong) but its green coloured - orange would have been cool too! Then a vanilla topping which is soft and creamy and then wrapped in black fondant icing - YUM!

Thoughts
A nice change from the normal mini roll we have all year round. I remember 'jaffa cakes' brought out a blackcurrant and lime version and I enjoyed it. This flavour always reminds me of the blackcurrant fruit pastille or the blackcurrant diluting juice my mum used to give me.

That's all the Halloween-type cakes I tried this year. Hope you enjoyed the post!! It was great to make ... as I got to eat lots of cakes! 

Let me know what you think in the comments and if you bought any ...
