Listen to a Review

Back in 2010, I requested Joe Augustin to give an honest review on our cakes. Listen to it here, a podcast he recorded with Shareen Wong.

how to decide how much alcohol you want?

We’ve received feedback that the Devil Chocolate Cake without alcohol is too bitter. As such, I thought it may be good that I share the feedback with everyone.

For this person, the first sample he had was actually a double Rum Devil Chocolate Cake (DCC). Then he decided to order one without any alcohol. He found the latter to be more bitter.

The fact is that the DCC is made with dark chocolate, with high cocoa content. So, you should like bitter chocolate to be happy with the no alcohol version. One of our regulars tells us that having the alcohol in the cake helps to make it appear less bitter.

So, the summary is this….

  1. if you need the cake to have no alcohol, you’ve got to love chocolates, dark chocolates
  2. if you’d like some alcohol, double Rum is the hot favorite
  3. if you are a Baileys person, that’s a good option too
