The Great Wedding Cake Taste!


With all the major supermarkets now offering wedding cakes, we decided to put them to the taste!


We asked 2 couples to mark the cakes out of 10 on Look, Taste & Value for Money.


The cakes were all fruit cakes from Marks & Spencer, Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury's.



Asda Scored 13/20 Groom2Be Dave said "This cake was really moist and had a nice texture. You could really taste the fruit too".
