BakerDays Personalised Letterbox Cake - Review

by - 11:48

On those rare occasions when Jack is asleep and I have some time for myself, all I often want to do is sit down with a nice cup of tea and some food whilst relaxing in front of the television. I'm not going to lie to you, the food I tend to eat during these moments does not count towards my five a day. (Unless you are meant to eat five portions of cake and chocolate a day that is!) Taking into my account my love of food, you can imagine my excitement when I was offered the opportunity to review a letterbox cake from Baker Days.

Immediately interested, I went straight on their website to take a look at their range. I could not believe the variety of cakes available. From new baby cakes to Valentines cakes, Baker Days provide personalised cakes for all occasions. I quickly decided that with Valentine's Day fast approaching, I would select a cake to express my love for my other half. (In actual fact, I know that he doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, which would leave most of the cake for me!) There was a large selection of cakes to choose from with both traditional and humourous tastes catered for. I opted for a simple vanilla sponge cake and moved onto personalising the cake. I was pleased that you were given the option of personalising the cake's entire text, resulting in an extra special message.

One thing I was really looking forward to was receiving a cake by post. It would make a nice change to receive something other than takeaway menus and bills through my door. I was however, still slightly surprised that such a thing as a letterbox cake existed.

 Wouldn't the cake be squashed? 

Would it arrive in one piece? 

I needn't have worried. The cake arrived in pristine condition. Fitting through the letterbox, it allows you to surprise anyone with a delicious personalised gift. 

The cake arrived in a tin adorned with the words 'Just For You.' I absolutely loved the tin and have kept it to store some little knick-knacks in. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the cake arrived with balloons, candles and a little card. These extra touches made it all the more special. They also include a leaflet showing some of their products just in case you are planning to make any future purchases. 

Baker Days suggest that the five inch letterbox cake will serve up to two people. This seems pretty accurate as you can divide the cake into quarters to get four good sized portions that are perfect for dessert. The cake itself once opened didn't last very long. It tasted divine! The sponge was fluffy and moist and alongside the icing made for a cake that was full of flavour.

I will definitely be ordering some Baker Days cakes as gifts for family and friends in the future. With their delicious range of recipes available for delivery 6 days a week, Baker Day's service is both quick and efficient. If you order before 2pm like I did, then Baker Days can deliver the next working day to virtually anywhere in the UK. Perfect for those last minute gifts! Perfect for all occasions, I'm sure my Fiancé has sneaked the leaflet away to use for future gift reference. I may have mentioned how much I loved the cake quite a few times.
