Snickers cake candy bar, Teacake Bake Shop, Emeryville

Super Strict Score [understand my S3]: 3

pound cake, peanut butter buttercream, caramel, pretzels, peanuts, chocolate ganache
wattwurmnashi was going to love this Snickers cake, or cake candy bar as the Teacake Bake Shop staff themselves call them. After all, it would be like a Snickers only better, right?

Unfortunately, that didn’t work out so well as it ended up not even tasting nicer than an actual Snickers which isn’t that hard to achieve. It was much too sweet [read: significantly sweeter than the real thing] & the over-abundant pound cake just felt like cakefill to make you feel more sated. The parts ratios were off, but the ratio of sugar:everything else was as well. The chocolate was disappointing as well, especially considering Teacake Bake Shop state on their website they “use only the finest ingredients […], like Callebaut” http://teacakebakeshop.com/mission/.

Given the choice, I am sad to say I would have preferred an actual Snickers.
