We received Cake Up treats in the mail - and instantly knew we're reviewing them here!

Weekday mornings are usually lazy and boring at work. But getting food in the mail makes it all so much better.

We received a package from Peek Freans Cake Up in the mail and instantly knew it will fix our blues in no time.

Let's get straight to business and find out which of the flavors, if any, make it to our list of favorites.

About the package

Staying true to their latest TV campaign, the package came with a sweet note from Peek Freans and four servings of little cupcakes flavored in Fruit Strawberry, Golden Caramel, Milky Chocolate and Double Chocolate.

Here's what it looks like:

Real goodness inside? Let's find out.

Cake Up in Milky Chocolate

We're in love with everything that smells/tastes/looks/feels like chocolate. End of story.

Cake Up Milk Chocolate comes with a regular vanilla cupcake sponge with a chocolate filled centre. We think the flavour works well for us because the sugar content isn't too overwhelming and sits well with the overall taste.

Verdict: It's a yes! This one's got what it takes to please us milk chocolate fans.

Cake Up in Double Chocolate

Cake Up Double Chocolate is a full serving of dark chocolate inside out. The sponge and center filling are both rich chocolate. Do we need to say more?

The filling is similar to that of the Milk Chocolate variant but the dark chocolate sponge gives it a pretty distinct flavour.

Verdict: Yes, yes and yes! Real goodness inside - definitely.

Cake Up in Golden Caramel

The moist cake sponges are made out of the regular wheat-egg-milk ingredients with a little helping of sweet caramel at the heart of the cupcake. The sponge-to-filling ratio is quite satisfying and noticeable at first bite.

Verdict: Might work for anyone who's into caramel - just not us.

Cake Up in Fruity Strawberry

The sponge here remains the same as the rest of the variants. The centre, however, is filled with fresh strawberry pulp that gives the sponge that fruity kick. We think this one's a must-have for anyone planning to incorporate cakes into dessert recipes.

Verdict: Best bet for fruity dessert frequenters!
