Review: We were sent a personalised cake from Baker Days to celebrate Mama Geek’s second birthday. It was absolutely scrummy!
Baker Days letterbox cakes are cleverly packaged slim cakes that can be posted straight through your (yep, you guessed it) letterbox. Perfect for sending as gifts to people who work full time… I would have loved to come home to one of these cakes back when I was doing office work!
The cake was inside a lovely tin with “just for you” on the lid, which we will definitely be reuseing in the future. Inside the tin the cake was sealed on a cake board, complete with instructions for removing your cake from the tin without damaging it, and a packet of dessicant to make sure your cake stays fresh in transit.
We were sent a chocolate sponge cake, which was really delicious. Baker Days use Belgian chocolate for their chocolate cake, and you can really taste the quality. It wasn’t too rich either, which was good. The chocolate sponge had both milk chocolate & white chocolate chunks in, which added even more yumminess. It was definitely the best chocolate cake I’d tasted for quite a while!
I was amazed at how fresh the cake tasted, and the great condition the careful packaging had kept it in during its trip with the Royal Mail.
The photo design on top of the cake was excellent. We were sent a “baby girl birthday cake” using a photo of Lydia that I provided. I went through the process of designing the same cake on their website and it was very easy to use, with plenty of control over photo placement etc. Baker Days have a really good selection of designs on the site, with a wide variety of occasions and themes. The print quality on the icing was really good; much better than some other photo cakes I’ve seen before.
With most of my reviews, I ask James for his opinion… With this cake, that really wasn’t necessary. His stern warning of “there had better be some left for me when I get home from work tomorrow” said it all, which he proclaimed to me about 30 seconds after scoffing his first slice.
I would certainly send one of these cakes to a friend for their birthday – it would make a perfect gift for one of those friends who is SO hard to buy for, but has a weakness for cake… And let’s face it, most people have a weakness for cake!
We give this tasty morsel 5 well deserved stars… Yum, yum, yum, yum yum!
Keep an eye out, I’ll be doing a giveaway for some of these delicious cakes very soon 😉
