Taste test: This version of the Balconi cake promised a yellow cake interior, with chocolate on the outside, plus a bonus layer of chocolate in the center. The brick-shaped cakes were three inches by an inch and three-quarters and about five-eights of an inch thick.
I bit in to find a very soft, light feel, with lots of chocolate and a great cake taste. It was very moist and quite nice. The chocolate coating was quite melty, leaving quite a lot of chocolate on the fingertips. Each individual packet (there were 10 in the box) included a piece of protective cardboard, and while it did help to protect the integrity of the brick shape, the cardboard made it harder to keep the chocolate off the fingers while eating. The cake was really good!
Smell test: Mild, sweet chocolate smell.
