Now don't get all upset at me people, I mean really, I know that some of you don't think that cakes should be reviewed on a site called Candy Critic. Well to you I say, go start your own site and tell me that you could resist a cake filled with chocolate that not only had monkeys on the package but was also shaped like one. I should mention that I think monkeys are really cool.
The only real problem with this treat is the fact that keeping a cake in the form of a monkey is pretty much impossible, particularly in a treat that’s mass produced. As you can imagine, by the time I opened my package my monkey cake had issues. Sure, he was tasty enough with plenty of chocolate packed in the middle of the vanilla cake. It's important that every bite have chocolate because cake can be really boring, dry and flavourless on its own. Needless to say, it was sad taking a bite out of the misshapen treat that was supposed to be a monkey.
I guess the only other thing that kind of threw me was the size. I like to take big mouthfuls of cake. The way the soft cake and icing fill my mouth is a real pleasure to me. These are just a little too small, only a mouthful (maybe two) per monkey.
