Baker Days Letterbox Cake and Giveaway!

Cake is one of my favourite things in life so when Baker Days contacted me to see if we'd like to review a cake, it was a tough decision!!!

Baker Days are a UK company based on the edge of Sherwood Forest. They create personalised cakes of all sizes, for every occasion. And not just your standard sponge cake either - they have a variety of different cake options such as chocolate chip, fruit, gluten and dairy free. You can upload your photo to appear on the cake or choose from their huge selection of designs. If you prefer cupcakes then even these can be personalised!

One of the most unique things Baker Days offer is a Letterbox Cake - a cake that actually fits through your letterbox! I was intrigued to see how this would work - would it arrive in bits?! Would it be in a big box with loads of padding?! (I actually made the mistake of telling Elliot we would be getting a cake through the post and he got very excited every time the postman arrived!)

When my parcel arrived and I opened the box (which fit through our letterbox perfectly!), I found a lovely little gift tin which contained the cutest little cake I have ever seen. Not only did it smell amazing but it looked brilliant!

 I asked Baker Days to design me a cake for Elliot as he was starting pre-school and I was really pleased with how it looked. The photos don't do it justice but the image on the cake came out brilliantly.

The letterbox cake is 5" which is enough for 3-4 portions of cake. I wondered how the cake would stay put on the way to us but the icing is stuck down to the board which keeps it secure. Along with the cake and the lovely tin, there was a little package containing balloons, candles and a blower - perfect for your own mini party!

Elliot was itching to "eat his own face" so we lit the candles and he spent ages tooting on his blower before we tucked into the cake. It tasted just as good as it looked and smelt and I have to say it didn't hang around long. The cakes can be kept up to two weeks but who keeps cake for that long?! ;)

The Letterbox cakes start from £14.99 which may sound a little pricy but I think if you wanted to send something a bit special and a bit different then it would be a perfect choice. And who doesn't love cake!

Baker Days are offering one lucky person their very own Letterbox cake - see below for details:
