“ Brand: Iceland / Type: Snacks „
I recently came across this platter when a colleague brought one to work. I was suitably impressed and purchased one for my am-dram group to enjoy between performances. At £5 the pack was very good value and it went down well both at work and at the local theatre.
8 mini cream rolls
8 mini black forest rolls
12 mini chocolate coated profiteroles
16 mini doughnuts
16 mini vanilla slices
Please note that 'mini' is the operative word and allow a few cakes per person.
The cakes come frozen in four separate boxes/bags within a larger pack. I removed them from the main box and they were thoroughly thawed after two hours at room temperature (it says on the packaging that one hour at room temperature should suffice).
Now the bit you're waiting for - the taste! I found them to be delicious especially the mini rolls which I had to stop myself from scoffing in one go. I was also very pleased with the taste of the doughnuts and vanilla slices. I did not get to sample the profiteroles but they must have been equally yummy as they disappeared very quickly. Despite the relatively low price the cakes did not taste cheap and were of good quality.
My one disappointment was that the vanilla slices had been tipped up on the way from Iceland to the theatre and the icing stuck to their box. There is a note to say that they must be kept upright but it is necessary to remove the outer packaging in order to see it
Iceland sell a large range of these big party platters now, making party food simple!
Of course, the favourite platter in our house is the dessert one! It contains:
8 mini cream swiss rolls
8 mini black forest swiss rolls
12 mini profiteroles coated in chocolate
16 mini donuts
16 mini vanilla slices
Each one tastes delicious, and is just the right size for a mouthful. Iceland have done well here and managed to get a good mix in this platter, making it appealing as theres something for everyone.
They are easy to prepare, no cooking involved at all, just pop in the fridge to defrost for 4 hours.
And even better - the price! At just £5 a box, these platters are well worth the money and terrific value! They are guaranteed to go down a storm at any party, although if you are having a large party you may need to invest in more than one box!
60 piece dessert platter!! Excellent!
This platter is really really good. For only 5 pounds you get 60 little bitesize dessert pieces.
The pack includes:
16 mini cinnamon doughnuts
12 Chocolate coated profiteroles
16 mini pastry slices
8 mini cream sponge rolls
8 mini blackforest sponge rolls
This pack has no gm ingrediends and no artificial colours or preservatives.
All you have to do to serve this dessert is remove it from the freezer and allow to defrost, this takes around 2 hours, absolutley brilliant for any party.
You will need to place these on either 2 small platters or one large one but if you put them on plates i imagine this would be just as good.
No need to worry that you wont know whats what when you open the box as each item comes in a plastic wrapper with the others in the variety with a label telling you what it is.
