Baker Days Letterbox Cakes - A Review

As Red Rose Daddy was celebrating his birthday recently I was delighted when Baker Days, the artisan bakers who deliver cakes to your letterbox, offered to send me one of their birthday cakes to review. Knowing that, within a matter of hours a cake would be arrive in the mail is quite exciting and I was very interested to test out the service.

Baker Days have a massive range of customisable cakes available. You name it, they probably have a design that will suit, many of them allow you to add a name, age and photo to make it fully personalised.

As Red \Rose Daddy and I are big Bolton Wanderers fans I decided to choose the Bolton Football Shirt cake (I was actually quite impressed to see this one, we're not in the Premier League anymore so get forgotten about). I personalised it with his name, age and photo. I chose the Chocolate Chip Sponge Cake, made with Belgian Chocolate, which requires a £2 premium.

The cake arrives brilliantly packaged. In a sturdy cardboard box, the cake is inside in a cute little tin with 'just for you' embossed upon it, and a party pack of candles, balloons and party blowers. If you were sending it as a surprise gift the packaging does mean it would be a pleasure to open. On the day our's arrived our postman brought a few parcels so handed me the box, I did test it to see if it would fit through our letterbox and it comfortably did so.

When you open the tine you are greeted by the sight of your cake on it's board, alongside instructions to remove it from the tin without damaging it. Once this is removed you can view your cake properly.

We tried the cake on his birthday and shared it between us. It tasted lovely. Really moist and moreish. Bud, especially, loved it. I'm not a big fan of icing but the printed icing is very thin so not too sweet. We were all really impressed by the quality of the cake, sending through the post means no compromise on quality at all.

We left about a third of our cake for a couple of days before we finished it and, stored in the tin, I'm happy to say that it hadn't gone stale at all. It kept really well.

At prices starting from £14:99 Baker Days cakes are quite expensive but I do think that they offer a unique gift. It would be perfect to send to someone as a birthday surprise, perhaps if you aren't planning to see them on their birthday or to send to a loved one at work? I know I would love to receive a surprise like this.

Have you ordered from Baker Days? What did you think?
