I was so chuffed when Baker Days gave me the opportunity to review one of their cakes because let’s be honest…who doesn’t love cake? I also thought it would be great way to stock up on ‘Daughter and Sister Brownie Points’ by letting my mum and sister in on the taste testing…generous wee soul that I am!
Baker Days were kind enough to let me choose the design I wanted and included a special message for my mum and sister. As we all love butterflies, I thought this would be perfect and I was amazed at how awesome it looked! There is so much attention to detail and we were all seriously impressed. Along with the cake, there was a card, candle, balloons and some party blowers . Literally, everything you need for a mini celebration! I thought this was a beautiful touch and we were all really impressed.
The cake (and other party goodies!) arrived in a cardboard box that slotted perfectly through the letterbox and landed on my doorstep with a thud. On opening the packaging, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the cake arrived in a gorgeous tin which not only helps to protect the cake during it’s journey (and we all know how much postal staff like to throw around packages!) but is also reusable as a cute storage tin. The cake itself was sealed very well and there was simply a tab I pulled to remove it (none of this faffing around with scissors or any of that nonsense which pleased me greatly!). I did worry about how a cake would survive the postal journey but Baker Days have got everything covered!
It was delicious and we all enjoyed a slice (or two in some cases, sshh!!). Ours was a vanilla filling but it is worth noting that you can also select a fruit or chocolate filling on their website. (I am particularly interested in the fruit filling because it sounds like something I would love). We were all shocked at how fresh the cake tasted and the size of the cake considering it literally just popped through the letterbox. Overall, it went down a treat! The only one who was upset was Bailey (our family Labrador) because he was left with nothing but crumbs!
It is also worth noting that the cakes can come with personalised messages or why not send in your own photo and create a photo cake? Baker Days offer such an extensive range of designs on their website. There is definitely a cake for everyone and every single occasion! What is life without cake??!!
Thank you so much to the wonderful team at Baker Days for giving my family and I the chance to try one of their delicious cakes! I will personally be using their service in future to surprise friends and family on their birthdays (or if the brownie points are getting low, haha!) letterbox cakes start from £14.99 and I think this is great value. It also saves the hassle of someone having to be home to collect delivery!
