Baker Days Letterbox Cake
I am addicted to cake. Every type of cake, although I think Victoria Sponge with raspberry jam and buttercream has to be my favourite. I love to bake but I don’t too often as it’s really hard for me to resist the finished product and eat it all in one sitting.
When Baker Days contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their Letterbox cakes, there was only one answer. Yes please. We didn’t have an occasion to celebrate but hey, who cares. Cake!
I perused their website and decided to ask for a design your own cake and chose a picture of Bear and our dog, Bella.
There are so many categories – I couldn’t list them all, but if you can think of it, Baker Days either have a template of it or can make it for you. They are very current and have snapchat style cakes, emoji’s and also more traditional cakes.
One thing that I thought was very good, is that you can get Vanilla sponge, Choc Chip sponge, Gluten free cake, Dairy free cake and fruit cake. They also can make and send a large variety of cupcakes and you can even put a photo on them too.
The cake arrived quickly and as they said it would, fit easily through the letterbox. Perfect for if you want to send a surprise to someone and you know that they won’t receive an annoying missed delivery card.
Now sadly, for us, Bear had a horrible accident on the day that the cake arrived, which required emergency surgery and a stay in hospital and the cake got put on the side and forgotten for over a week. That made no difference to the freshness of the cake as it tasted delicious (we had the vanilla sponge with jam and buttercream) but I did notice that the picture did blur a little and I’m sorry that my photo’s don’t do the cake justice.
The cake comes in a lovely tin that you can reuse, some candles, balloons and a little card. Perfect and a lovely touch. It is wrapped in plastic with a card base.
The icing wasn’t too thick and tasted really nice – not really artificial like some that I have tasted in the past. The buttercream and jam tasted lovely and the cake wasn’t dry, despite not being eaten immediately. I have nothing bad to say about this experience and will have no hesitation to order from them in the future.
*Disclosure: I was sent the Baker Days cake for the purpose of this review but as always, my thoughts and comments are not swayed by this and are my own.
