There is something so exciting about receiving gifts through the post, especially when it’s a delicious cake that can fit through your actual letterbox!
The lovely people at bakerdays kindly sent me one of their 5″ letterbox gift cakes to try and I thought what a fabulous and unique idea, having a cake sent to you through the post. Bakerdays is a personalised cake specialist, who provide personalised cakes for all occasions and they provide a range of different sized cakes, as well as different recipes to choose from, so there is something for everyone. Perfect.
I wasn’t quite sure how the cake would survive, being handled by various people on its journey to my house and then landing on the mat, after being dropped from letterbox height, but the cake arrived in perfect condition and I couldn’t wait to discover the content inside.
The cake was delivered in a cardboard box and was securely packaged in a lovely bakerdays cake tin, complete with a Christmas cracker, a cute packet of love hearts and a card with ‘enjoy’ written inside, which of course I did enjoy!
There are many cakes to choose from on the bakerdays website, with many occasions catered for, from birthday and anniversary celebrations to new baby and Easter cakes. I decided to opt for a Christmas cake, as this time of year is approaching fast and I also chose to have my cake personalised, which I thought was a fabulous touch, as anything personalised is a sure winner with me. Our names were perfectly personalised on each Christmas stocking, making the cake more personal to us.
My Christmas cake was made with vanilla sponge, as oppose to a traditional fruit cake, however you can choose fruit cake when you decide which recipe you would like on the website. The icing was vibrant and so colourful, making this cake a delicious and exciting gift to receive. The 5″ letterbox cake was a perfect size to share between the four of us and the vanilla sponge and buttercream tasted so delicious and light and I would say it is well worth the price of £14.99, as it’s such a great little gift to give someone you care about.
Many thanks to bakerdays for a fabulous and unique experience. Communication has been excellent and their cake, well, all I can say is what a fantastic way to surprise someone with a delicious personalised gift and a brilliant alternative to sending flowers. I’ll be ordering a cake to surprise somebody I care about, why don’t you do the same and say it with cake!
