If there is one thing my girls love it’s cake, in fact, we all do. Whenever Meme is feeling sad or is a little down in the dumps going to school, the best way to cheer her up is to promise to take her for some cake after school. I love this.I hope that cake can always cheer her up. So you can imagine my excitement when BakerDays got in touch asking if I wanted to review one of their personalised letterbox cake…YES Please!
Introducing Personalised Letterbox Cake
I had actually heard of the company Bakerdays before. Whilst I love personalised cakes I was a little unsure of the letterbox cake idea? How would it work? Would it not get squashed or broken? Would it need to be eaten straight away? I had all kind of questions running through my head.
Ordering a Personalised Letterbox Cake Online
So I went on their website to choose a design. I was on there for a while! There is so much choice. I decided to go for a Princess cake for Harri’s birthday. There is lots of different recipes that you can choose from. Traditional sponge, rich chocolate chip, lemon drizzle, and fruit. They also have vegan, dairy free and wheat free options available also.
Delivery and First Impressions of Bakerdays.
I processed my order on the Monday. I received my cake on the Wednesday, much to my delight. If you make your order before 2pm you can actually receive it the next day. For an unorganised Mummy like me, is like music to my ears! It was perfect! There is no better feeling than receiving a beautiful package. The presentation of the cake is really lovely. My cake came in a white box which consisted of a round tin with the words “Just for You” printed on it in. The box also included some candles, balloons and one of those things that roll out when you blow it (not sure what they’re called?), which I thought was a nice touch.
Celebrating with Bakerdays
Although I was eager to tuck in, my husband suggested saving it until the weekend as a little treat for the girls. I was a little worried if it would still be fresh however, Bakerdays do state that each cake remains fresh for 14 days so I thought it would be a good test.
On a rainy Sunday afternoon we got out the cake out to show the girls, they were delighted! It’s Belle shouted Harri whilst Meme read the personalised cake message. The cake tastes delicious. the icing wasn’t too sweet and the chocolate cake tasted amazing, needless to say it went down a treat!
I love the idea of the letterbox cake. I think it is such a unique idea for a friend who maybe needs a little pick me up, a tired new Mummy or even a little treat for a child starting school (my girls love receiving post addressed to them, receiving cake would be a dream come true!)
Have a little look on www.bakerdays.com and be spoilt for choice….what cake would you choose?
We were sent this cake by the lovely people at BakerDays but all words are my own….and Meme and Harri’s of course!
