Introduction

The overall finish of my Family Fruit cake was excellent. It was golden and crispy brown at the top in relation to appearance. It gave off a wonderful aroma of freshly baked sponge cake when it was being baked. It looked mouth watering once it had cooled down. The flavour of the cake was fruity and the texture was spongy and moist. It looked colourful also because of the different colours of the dried fruit I had added. I was amazed with the overall finish of the cake because it was neat and it was brilliant in taste, texture and appearance. I couldn't find any bad points for the overall finish of my cake.

I asked a number of people to taste and test my sandwich cake in relation to appearance, flavour/taste and texture using the two sensory evaluation tests: * Descriptive testing/profiling * Rating RATING TEST: Tester 5 4 3 2 1 Comments 1 It's soft, crumbly and very delicious indeed. 2 So fruity, and crumbly as well 3 I really like the technique of all the fruits and carrots all in one sponge. 4 The top of the cake is ever so crispy. 5 It smells nice and the flavour is tasty. 6 Wow, I love the neat finish. 7 The sponge is wonderful. 8 Nice and golden brown- just the way I prefer. 9 Flavour is really balanced with the texture. ...read more.

Conclusion

The disadvantage of the cake was that it took a lot of time to bake in the oven but it took very little time to prepare the mixture. The other problem that I suffered was lining the grease proof paper into the tin. The lining process was confusing because we had to grease, line with a thick strip of grease proof paper all the way round the tin, grease again and then again line with a circular greaseproof paper and gain just grease all over. If I were to make or produce the cake again, I would add a little spice into the mixture to give it a piquant and a spicy flavour which would change its taste slightly. I could also add a zest of orange to improve its flavour or maybe I could even change its shape to a square to change its appearance. 1 ZAINAB HASSANALI ...read more.
