Baker Days Cakes Letterbox Cake Review*

Monday 3 August 2015

was sent this item free of charge in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Baker Days are an online/shop based cake company situated in Sherwood Forest, it was founded by Andrea Guzyova and greeting card entrepreneur Alan Hawkes, they provide cakes for all kinds of occasions and can deliver cakes safely everywhere in the UK. Their cakes have been developed so the cakes themselves taste as if we ourselves have made them. They have just recently launched a cake called *the letterbox cake which is a small celebration cake for one or two people, you can have it personalised and choose what flavour you want it to be (just like their other cakes) but there is a twist, the letterbox cake can fit through your letterbox, which makes it a small and quirky gift to send!

They kindly sent me out my very own letterbox cake to review, with my blog logo on, I was so skeptical that it wouldn't fit through my letterbox but it actually did! When it arrived it came in a gorgeous little tin with the words 'Just for you' on the top, next to it were some candles and party accessories, they also included a cute little card. When I opened the tin the cake was inside a plastic protective bag (which is a brilliant idea) and there was a pull tab to raise the cake out of the tin making it easier to pop out rather than having to tip it upside down, I pulled the tab and the cake popped out smoothly and easily and then I opened the protective bag to see the cutest little cake with my blog logo on (although I could already see that with the cover on, I just could see if more clearly), the logo came out really clear and the exact colours which were used for the logo, I'm really impressed with how it looks on the cake.

I really didn't want to cut into it because of how adorable it was but I thought I should give it a taste, the sponge is vanilla flavoured and was the perfect texture, it didn't crumble and was very spongy and moist (I hate that word), it was also kept lovely and fresh thanks to the tin and the bag it came in, I'm not normally a big fan of icing but the icing on this cake was delicious, soft and not too sickly. I ended up taking the cake with me to my boyfriends landlords BBQ and the boys cut it into tiny pieces and gobbled it all up, they also pointed out that the Baker Days website was on the side of the cake which I never even noticed until they pointed it out to me I highly recommend these cakes, at £14.99 for your own customised letterbox cake you can't really go wrong can you! how lovely and yummy does it look!

Their larger cakes which come in small, medium and large (8-55 portions) you can also personalise these with your own message, upload your own photos or choose one of 500 of Bakerdays designs which you can have delivered the next day or have the option of pre-ordering, the prices range from £14.99 to £59.99. Bakerdays cakes are all handmade and they only use the best and tastiest ingredients, such as using their own buttercream with real butter, they don't use any cheap alternatives or any preservatives, they don't just provide cakes, they also bake cupcakes! If you need a company logo cake designed, Bakerdays are the place to go! If you need gluten free/wheat free/dairy free cakes they are more than happy to make and supply them for their customers. I love the idea of these sorry cakes, perfect for when I've got myself into hot water:

1. Sorry Cakes: Please Forgive Me // 2. Sorry Cakes: I'm Very Sorry

If you're worried about ordering a cake online and are one of those people who would rather go to a bakery near you don't fear, Bakerdays website is very easy to use and if you have any queries they're more than happy to help and put your mind at ease. All you have to do is choose a category, select the cake you would like (design, size recipe), buy or personalise then add your delivery details and checkout, it's as simple as that! Check them out:

If you have something Important to say/ask and you're too afraid, why not say it with a cake!

    1. Thank you my sweet! I could do with some cake right now but i'm trying my best to stay away from too much sugar, I hope you're ok xx

  2. This is so cute. I think they are a really good idea for a different present - instead of sending flowers, send cake - ideal! :) x
