I recently discovered Baker Days website, and I couldn't wait to try out one of their delicious Personalised Letterbox Cakes for myself! I think these cakes are an amazing idea for a gift, especially if you're worried about someone being at home to accept the delivery, because the cake simply fits through the letterbox, and even after being posted through and dropping to the floor, it still remained perfectly intact!
There are various cakes to choose from for all kinds of occasions, including Personalised Birthday Cakes, Anniversary, Graduation, Get Well Soon, Thank You, Valentines, Mothers & Fathers Day, Just To Say, and many many more! The cakes are available pre-designed or personalised with photo's and images of your own! Not only do Baker Days offer letterbox sized cakes, but also larger sizes, and even boxes of Cup Cakes too!
I chose the pre-designed Two Hearts Engagement Cake* for me and my Fiance' to enjoy as we haven't really had any celebrations or presents since we got engaged back in February this year(due to financial reasons etc) Anyway, I digress... All I had to do was change the message/wording, and select a recipe - I went for a simple Sponge Cake although there are plenty of other options for everyones tastes.
The cake itself arrived within a couple of days, although you can pay extra for next day delivery if you need it fast! It arrived in a discreet white cardboard box, and inside I found a greetings card, a packet of Love Hearts sweeties (so cute!) and then of course the cake, which was presented in a beautiful storage tin (definitely keeping this). The cake is 5 inch across, and serves 3-4 portions. The design and wording was very clear and printed well.
The cake itself tastes absolutely delicious, I'm really glad I chose the sponge option as the icing adds just enough sweetness to the mix! Me and Ashley really enjoyed this cake, and I would definitely recommend and purchase one for a special occasion for friends and family, or even just send to a loved one to let them know you're thinking of them!
