I was so looking forward to this cake. One of the foods I have missed since having to go gluten free is red velvet cake. It finally came today, and I can’t tell you how excited I was. My first bite, oh I can’t tell you how disappointed I am. If you like the taste of paper, you might like this cake. Do NOT waste your hard earned money on this tasteless cake. Even the cream cheese frosting has little taste. How does this cake get good reviews?!?
The frosting covered burned cake was lovely on the eyes, not so much on the tastebuds…
Ordered via Goldbelly, their response:
We are unable to issue resolutions due to taste complaints. We Take the Cake ships thousands of their Gluten-Free Red Velvet 4-Layer Cake out weekly and we never hear of complaints like this.
Apparently, I’m a liar?
I sent this cake to my daughter on her birthday. She thought it was absolutely delicious....no hint of being gluten free. I will certainly order again!
I have ordered this cake for my daughter's birthday 2 years in a row. She receives it at college and it is now our new tradition for her birthday away from home. It's delicious, well packaged, and beautiful! Perfect!!!
I have a niece with a severe gluten intolerance which led me to searching online for cake options. I stumbled upon this site via a Google search and found this site.
At the time of ordering, gluten-free red velvet and gluten-free coconut cakes were my only options. I'm hoping at some point, the options will be expanded because our experience with the gluten-free red velvet layer cake was AMAZING!
It's hard to adjust to a gluten-free existence after eating gluten your whole life. But in order to support my niece, I've tried to adjust my personal choices pertaining to food options in order to show my support for her. It helps to better understand how to support her and understand better what she has to experience.
This red velvet layer cake was a huge success! The family loved it, my niece was excited to have a cake she could indulge in, and the taste was exceptional! Now that we've had such a successful experience with this company and with this particular cake, I definitely want more options to select from.
Another thing to mention is that I ordered this cake on May 31, 2020 for her birthday on June 4th. This cake was delivered to my home via FedEx on June 3rd. What amazed me even more that in addition to the excellent taste of the cake, was the fact that this cake made the trip from Florida all the way to Hawaii intact, securely packed and insulated, with very clear instructions on handling. This was a great overall experience and we will definitely look to using company again for future needs!
