Baker Days Letterbox Cake

Recently I was contacted by the lovely people at Baker Days; a company which specialise in personalised cakes by post! They asked me if I would like to review one of their letterbox cakes, a 5'' cake designed to be posted right through your letterbox! Of course, I said I would love to!

A few days later, I found a little white box on my doormat, and inside was a lovely round tin containing my little edible delight. Also in the box was a card, two candles, three balloons, and a party blower!

The cake itself was a cute miniature birthday-style cake, covered with icing. I sent my blog banner to be put on the cake, and they also included a lovely background design which was a lovely touch. I didn't specify which cake flavour I wanted but I got a lovely surprise when I cut into it and discovered that it was chocolate! Other flavours that they do are vanilla sponge and fruit sponge and they also do gluten free and dairy free too. You can choose from lots of designs and you can personalise them and even add photos to some of them.

The chocolate sponge itself was very moist and really yummy! I'm not sure how I controlled myself enough not to eat it all at once! The icing was tasty too, and was quite thick. All together it was very delicious!

Personalised Cake

Letterbox cakes start at £14.99 and can be personalised which makes them great as a gift for someone's birthday and they have a great range of birthday cakes to personalise. They also cater for other occasions too! And because they can be posted through the letterbox, it really can be a surprise as no one needs to be in to collect it when the postman comes. I know I would be super happy to receive one as a present!

Baker Days also make larger cakes, and also cupcakes so they really do have something for everyone.

I'd love to know if you have tried one of these cakes and also what you think of the whole idea!

Now, where's my next slice of cake?
