The mission was to all make a most fabulous chocolate cake filled with cream cheese and fresh raspberries, topped with a most amazing chocolate ganache!! Sounds amazing, it was.

The results I have to say were amazing. The cake tastes varied incredibly and the costs were so different too. I was so pleased because out of the 9 chocolate cakes that were made I managed to bag 3rd place along with my chosen Supermarket which was 'Sainsbury's'. Well done Sainsbury's.
2nd place was awarded to Ren Behan and the Co-Op supermarket and 1st prize went to the Most Marvellous baking lady and Morrison's supermarket. There you go, who would have thought it!!
The first supermarkets that were eliminated for taste were Lidl and Aldi. Better luck next time, but I will say Lidi you sell the most amazing fresh figs in the summer, so well done you!! Followed swiftly by Marks and Spencer, Waitrose, and Tesco. Big surprises really with Waitrose and M&S for me. I would have put money on either of those fabulous supermarkets being one of the top three! But we were proved very wrong! The costings for the cakes were not know until after the results for the best tasting cakes were revealed.
