Has anyone ever tried these? I saw the eggnog cake being sold this weekend but I was hesitant to order. Any reviews?

    I haven't tried these items, but I'd just like to say that I do use QVC a lot because I don't drive and I like the convenience of delivery. Their quality is very good, they make it very easy to do returns with pre-addressed labels and very simple forms, etc. And they stand behind everything. So, if you have any problems, don't really like what you bought, you would get a refund without question. Obviously, you can't return a food item but you have an unconditional 30 day guarantee and could just call their 800 number to ask how to receive a refund on a food item.

      I recently purchased the eggnog chocolate cake and it is very very rich and delicious!
      I cut off my usual quarter of a cake, and could not eat it all. The nutritional information states the cake is to be cut in 1/16 slices. This is plenty for one serving. The slice is 350 calories, but that doesn't matter to a chocoholic like me.
      The cherries are on the bottom, then chocolate cake, then the egg not cream center, then chocolate cake, then covered in the chocolate panache. YUM!

          Best desert I ever had....
