ASDA Daisy Lemon Cupcakes Review

I've been thinking of buying the cupcakes from ASDA's 'Chosen By You' range and I also had to review them being the massive cupcake lover I am. Firstly, the price of it is a quite reasonable 80p each and I have to say that it's quite reasonable for what I seem to think as a luxury dessert.

Aesthetics
4/5
This has to be the prettiest cake I've ever eaten and I love the little edible daisy which it has been garnished with. The frosting in some places was a little bit messy and uneven where some parts hadn't even been frosted but there is plenty to go round.

Taste
3/5
It didn't really have much of cake taste and more of a sugary lemon taste from the frosting which made up most of the cake. It did have the tangy taste you would expect from a lemon flavour with a good mesure of sweet to balance it out and normally these two don't really go well together but it seems to do a great job. I was also disappointed with the daisy made with the wretched edible paper. It's defiantly one to have with tea.

Texture
4/5
The cake was moist and very easy and the frosting didn't seem to gloop everywhere when bitten into like some cupcakes I've tasted before. The cake was so moist, however it nearly melted in my mouth which made you taste more of the frosting then the base of the cake which was a bit disappointing.

Overall
13/15
It's a great cake to have with a lunch or with afternoon tea but it's defiantly not one to go for if you're not fond of lemon or sugary frostings but it's a great looker and ASDA have done a great job at making a great lemon cupcake.
