Very attractive cakes. They are a good size for snacking and sharing. The flavors are very mild. I was only able to taste the lemon flavor, supposedly chocolate and strawberry are the other intended flavors. The cake itself is delicious, not too sweet nor is it bland. I do think the icing was poorly chosen to complement the cake.

This is one of my favourite cup of tea treats although one is never usually enough. The yellow and pink ones are the best...I'm not a huge fan of the chocolate but never turn one down. They have a short shelf life but do not last 2 mins in our house.

These delightful delicate fondant Fancies, are a lovely treat to have in your cupboard. Once again I can recommend these indivual cakes. They are great as a tasty indulgent treat, or even for serving to guests. Love the different choices of icing in one box. My favourite is the chocolate one.

Mr. Kipling produce incredibly wonderful baked goods, they taste as if they were home made. These French Fancies are not only great to eat but they look very pretty. In the summertime they are lovely to take along on a picnic. They are not as sweet as you would imagine them to be and so it is quite easy to enjoy more than one.

I remember these as a child and have also recently tried the white ones at Christmas and the orange ones at Halloween, but the original ones are the best. I think they are my favourite of all Kipling's cakes. I would buy again and recommend. Nice to know they are still available.

As we are big fans of Mr Kipling at home (and we have tried most of the cakes), we decided to try the French fancies. I was not so impressed with them, I found them too sweet, I think they would be better without the icing topping. That being said, the sponge is delicious as usual, they look very good and will impress your guests, and make for a lovely gift.

Quite disappointing and not as delicious as I remember them. They are moist and extremely pretty little cakes, and I underline the word 'little', as they are also much smaller than I thought. The sponge itself is very light and fluffy, the buttercream blob that tops it doesn't say much, quite bland. The flavoured fondant icing is a bit of a let down, not enough taste to them. Only the lemon yellow cake had a bit of flavour to it and the brown, supposedly chocolate cake, did not taste of chocolate at all. However, three stars because they are very, pretty.

French Fancies come in three different colours and flavours. The inside is the same for all - a delicate sponge coated with vanilla butter fondant.

The brown cakes have a chocolate flavoured icing, the pink ones are supposed to be strawberry flavoured and the yellow fancies have a mild lemony taste.

Very delicious, and just the right size for an after dinner sweet.

As delicious as always, strawberry, lemon and chocolate flavoured fondant icing on a delicious light sponge topped with fluffy butter cream. Mr. Kipling French Fancies are so pretty when served too. There are 8 in the pack, I've always seen three pink,three yellow and two brown. Perfect as part of a Sunday teatime spread.
