Bakerdays Letterbox Gift Cake Review
I was delighted to receive my first request to review a product on the blog! Cue a flurry of excitement which included me shouting ‘I’ve had my first PR request!!!!’ My husband looking proud, and the children looking blank. Cue further excitement when I shouted: ‘And it involves cake!!!!’ With my husband then salivating at the thought of his favourite food of all time (I got this question wrong during a pre wedding game of Mr and Mrs, and Mr W never quite got over the fact we were about to get married and I didn’t know his favourite food was cake, and hence I’ve never since forgotten this fact.) Clearly also at the mention at the word ‘cake,’ the children promptly dropped their blank expressions, and started running around like nutters, chanting ‘cake! cake! cake!’ There was plenty of excitement.
I emailed Emma, the lady who had contacted me, and asked for further details. Emma responded very promptly, and all communication with her was nothing less than very professional! I was to review a 5″ cake, designed to fit through your letterbox (hence the name!) and I could choose a design from the many listed on the website, including having it personalised with names/photos etc. Baker Days also offer a huge size range of cakes, and can add a hug range of personalised features, such as photos, and cater for every occasion you can think of! For the full range, click here.
The Bakerdays website describes the cakes as follows:
“BakerDays is a Personalised Celebration Cake Specialist, providing quality personalised cakes for all occasions. The delicious range of recipes and sizes are available for delivery 6 days a week, and if you order before 2pm, BakerDays can deliver the very next day!”
“The Letterbox cake is the baby of the BakerDays family. Being just 5” in diameter, it fits perfectly through the Letterbox allowing you to surprise anyone with the most delicious personalised gift.”
When the cake arrived, it did exactly as advertised, and fit perfectly through our letterbox!
The cake was packaged in this beautiful, sturdy tin, (which I will keep and re-use!) and also handily contained a packet with 2 candles, 2 balloons, and a party horn. There was also a cute card, and an Bakerdays information leaflet.
It was a tough choice choosing the design for the cake, because there were so many! But, with my husband being a huge Star Wars fan (he is watching it as we speak, and in true super fan/borderline obsessive fashion, is seeing it again tomorrow!) And the children going the same way (Deep Thinker insisted on a Star Wars advent calendar,) there was certainly no other style I could choose, other than this…
May the cake force be with you.
The style of the storm trooper wearing a Santa hat definitely fit my sense of humour! And I had it personalised with the children’s blog code names, which also gave me a little chuckle, as well as looking really good! There was certainly a style for everybody on the website, from traditional, to modern and humorous. The website was also fabulous as it was really easy to navigate! Nothing puts me off buying something when, slight technophobe as I am anyway, you have to jump through a million hoops to get to what you want.
As promised, the cake was fresh, and in one piece (there was a freshness seal around it, not pictured, which you just easily lifted off with a handle, before removing the cake,) and all the ingredients were listed clearly on the underside of the packaging. It is designed to serve 6 people, and we divided it between 4 adults and 2 children. I would say that for a bigger appetite, this would more comfortably serve 4. The sponge was light, and the icing was soft, (even though I initially had my reservations that there was too much icing, but everyone, including myself, loved it,) and within seconds, this was all that was left…
Oh crumbs, it’s all gone…
The world is definitely your oyster with this style of cake. There are so many styles/pictures to choose from, and being able to personalise it makes it suitable for so many different occasions! It could be an ‘I’m thinking of you,’ ‘congratulations,’ ‘new baby,’ the list is endless, type of cake. I would definitely use Bakerdays again, and have to say that my experience with them was all positive!
I was given the cake for free in return for this review, but all opinions are genuine, and my own.
