When I was asked by Baker Days if I would like to review one of their cakes I honestly couldn't say no! I love cake so this was pretty perfect for me. All I had to do was look on their website and chose and design. How easy was this to get cake lol!
So I popped over to their website to choose my design. Well this took me a little longer than I thought it would as they have so many great designs ranging from Birthday cakes and Anniversary cakes to Sorry cakes and New Home cakes. You name it and they have a cake for it.
And within each of these categories there are so many designs to chose from. You can even send them a photo and they will put it on the cake for you. After browsing their website for a good half hour drooling over their cakes, I decided on a lovely bright cake covered in a flower print with a gift tag in the middle of the cake. The product code is 953 for anyone that would like this cake.
I sent my cake request to Baker Days with my address and I had a reply that I would received my cake very soon. Well within 2 days my cake came through the post in a letterbox sized white box (the name of the cake is a give away really) I hadn't thought about how the cake was going to be packaged as I hadn't really looked into that I was just excited about the cake! I opened up the box and there was the most gorgeous tin enclosing my cake along side some love hearts!
And also I hadn't stated what I wanted on the gift tag in the middle of the cake so the fact they personalised it with my blog name made it really special. And it smelt delicious!! It had a wrapper over it that you just needed to pull off once you had taken the cake out of the tin.
The love hearts were a lovely addition to the cake. And there was also a lovely little card.
I was very intrigued to see if the cake was in one piece. As we all know the post isn't the delicately of handled things! I popped the tin open and it had been packaged so well that it was in one piece! Perfect!
Once the cake was out the tin we obviously had to try it. So we popped the kettle on and made a cup of tea as you can't have cake without tea!
The cake was one layer of sponge. The cake was secured to the cardboard bottom my buttercream which I have to say was pretty delicious (I scrapped the remainder off with a spoon!) The sponge was a good size layer of sponge but the cake is obviously small as it needs to fit through the letter box. But it was just big enough for the whole idea of a letterbox celebration cake.
The cake was just perfect for the 4 of us. And the sponge was so soft. I had thought that the sponge may have been dry but I was totally wrong. It had the perfect cake consistency. And the icing was very tasty! The boys also loved the cake.
I can't finish without mentioning the tin that the cake came in. It will be great to use again for biscuits and cookies. It has very slight air holes around the edge of the lid which obviously helped keep it fresh while in transit. It has a lovey design on it also. It adds just that little something special to the cake.
This really is just the most perfect idea of sending someone a personalised little gift for a birthday, anniversary or to just say Hi!
