Pineapple Upside Down cake. The quality of this cake is exceptionally high, with cake maintaining a glorious moisture. Moreover, fresh pineapple is used in this dessert, and this makes a huge difference. The fresh pineapple has a greater aroma, but doesn't have the acidity that a raw pineapple typically has. The only negative would be the size. If you're someone as unashamedly piggish as myself, then you could probably consume this cake in just one bite.
Price: $3.00. 8/10
Rainbow Cake. The first question that might pop into peoples minds is - What is used to colour the sponge? The answer to this is vegan colouring extracted from vegetables, fruits and plants. The white cream that is smeared between the layers has a zesty lemon tang to it. If I was to nitpick, it could be said that this cake was a little too dry, especially in comparison to the pineapple cake. Perhaps a little more of that lemon cream would have suppressed that concern. Very satisfying slice overall (I bought the full slice).
Price: $6.00 (half) $11.50 (full). 7/10
Conclusion - The issue with Delcie's is always going to be the price. Would I regularly purchase items from Delcie's? Probably not, simply because my main culinary passion is for savoury food. However, if you are someone (I'm guessing female) who has lived as a vegan for some time, and has been spending your nights hiding under your blanket in a cold sweat, your mind bombarded with lustful thoughts of gorging like a deranged primitive animal on a spongy creamy sweet cake - Then, I'm sure you can appreciate that price shouldn't be an issue in satisfying that craving.
