Baker Days Letterbox Cake

Baker Days make a range of cakes including a Letterbox cake which is what I was sent to review. It’s small enough to fit through the letterbox so perfect for busy people who don’t want to wait in for it.
They have a very impressive range of cakes and their website is really quick and easy to use. You can pick the occasion, cake design, size and flavour. You can also design your own; upload photos, or chose from one of their designs. And lastly you can choose the flavour from sponge, fruit, carrot, double choc chip, or gluten and wheat free cake.
For my review I decided to let them design one for me with a picture of my gorgeous dog. When it arrived I was blown away by how lovely it looked. I was dubious as to how a cake could be transported and put through a letterbox without been damaged at all but was pleasantly surprised. As you can see from the below picture it was delivered in a lovely cake tin which was also in a box that was letterbox size.

The cake tin was lovely and said Just for you on the tin.

When I opened the tin I was really happy with the quality of the cake and the design on it was lovely. And best of all it arrived all in one piece which I was amazed at. Letterbox cakes defiantly do work and can arrive in perfect condition. Also with it were a couple of balloons, candles, party blowers, and card which I thought was a lovely thoughtful little extra.

The cake itself not only looked great but tasted lovely too. The sponge itself was really light and lovely and moist, not dry at all. The icing itself was not too thick either and lovely and soft. I have to admit I’m not usually a fan of icing, I tend to pick it off, but this one was lovely and as I said it wasn’t too thick so was perfect. I was sent carrot flavour which was really lovely flavour and we all enjoyed it. 

These are great as a present for a loved one or for someone who lives far away. I will defiantly be purchasing from them again in the future.

Prices of the cake start from £14.99 including delivery. You can find Baker Days on the following links:
