I often ask my husband Adam what kind of sweets he’s in the mood for. This way, I know whether brownies, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, spice cake, or something else will satisfy his sweet tooth. Recently, I had the pleasure of offering him something he hardly ever gets to enjoy: gluten-free yellow cake.

Pros: I don’t know whether or not smell should be filed under appearance or not, but the aroma of fresh, real yellow cake offered by this cake is tremendous. I’m not even a big cake-eater, and I was drooling over this cake as it came warm from the oven. It smelled great, and it looked great!
Cons: I was disappointed with the lack of tradition yellow cake color this cake offered. I cooked the cake exactly to the recipe and for the max amount of time, and the cake was a darker yellowish-brown (almost raw-looking). Bummer.
Pros: I liked the overall flavor of this cake, as it offered a versatility for some great add-ins and multiple kinds of possible frosting!
Cons: Both Adam and I agreed this cake flavor wasn’t very strong at all. The cake itself wasn’t too sweet (which is a good thing in my mind) but along that line, it was also a little bland. I felt like I had a hard time tasting the cake when eating it.
Pros: This cake was moist and wonderful! There was not grainy at all, held onto the moisture well, and kept well outside the fridge (unlike some gluten-free cakes). Well-done on mastering the cake texture!
Cons: I have zero complaints here!
What I Love
I really loved the texture of the cake as well as its versatility. I could really see myself adding fresh, sliced fruit to it or swirling in some chocolate cake for a marble cake.
What I’d Improve
I was just really disappointed with the appearance of this cake. The taste offered by this cake was party-worthy but the inside, although wonderfully moist, was not the picture of the yellow cake on the box.
