The cake—which comes in a box for carrying—is shaped like a tree stump, hence the name.

The exterior chocolate fondant bark tastes exactly like canned frosting but is extremely chewy. That’s off-putting as there’s so much of it on the cake.

The flower on top tastes like actual fondant. The spiral and medallion are the same milk chocolate you’ll find on other desserts.

The actual cake is dry, but the chocolate flavor is there.

This is a miss for us, being too sweet with a dry cake. There’s no balance to the flavors or textures.
