I've tried to write this review 3 times now. Each time I start about 3 sentences in I'm not really sure where I'm going. Describing this cake is simple. It's two layers of vanilla cake with vanilla icing in the middle. The "novelty of this cake is the layer of chocolate at the bottom. The concept is that instead of icing the top with chocolate, they've added cake on top of a layer of chocolate icing. It really doesn't do much to improve or even change any regular cake experience since flipping your cake isn't that hard. It's as if they're celebrating the fact that they've packaged their cakes upside down.

I could excuse the silliness of the novelty of this cake if the quality was there, but it's not. The two layers of vanilla cake are dry and tasteless. The chocolate bottom is cheap, and is the only thing in this treat worse than the cake. The only redeeming part of this cake is the layer of vanilla icing between the two pieces of cake. Unfortunately there's only a very thin layer of this icing and the flavour and slightly moist texture is lost because of the cake.

I can't say I expected much from this treat, but I was hopeful. Unfortunately the cake was pretty crappie so this treat only delivered a silly and pointless novelty.
