Baker Days Letterbox Gift Cake Review and Giveaway



I have a huge sweet tooth so I was very excited when I found out I was getting to review a letterbox cake from Baker Days

It was even more exciting that I got to choose what kind of cake I wanted and the design for it. The Baker Days website has so much choice and cakes for all occasions. You can also put a photograph on one if you wanted. We currently don't have any occasion coming up and so I was straight away drawn to the Emoji cakes. 
Again there was a huge choice of Emoji designs and I did struggle to make up my mind, I was tempted to get the Will you Marry Me Cake for a giggle and to scare my partner haha, but decided to be nice and I felt the face with hearts for eyes was the better option.  

I then had to choose what I would like written on my cake. I opted for "To My Family" at the top. And "I Love you Loads" at the bottom. 

I couldn't wait for my cake to arrive. I was excited for the fact that it was just going to be slipped through my letter box as I must admit its not something I have received through my letter box before. 

A few days later it arrived. I opened the box to find it presented in such a nice little tin that said Just for you on the front. I was eager to see my cake so opened the tin and there it was, my personalised design that I had asked for. My daughter giggled at it, and my partner said he loved the design and I was really impressed with it. I knew that it would be a small cake but didn't realise how CUTE the cake would be. I was really happy with it. 




After dinner it came to tasting time. I'm really fussy with cake. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I'm really not to keen. I sliced a tiny slice for myself and one for my partner. Lily won't ever eat cake for some reason and refused some when I offered it her. So? The verdict? It was Delicious! The flavour was just right, sweet but not sickly and not dry. The icing was just the right amount, not to thin and not to thick. This cake is perfect and I could of happily sat there and ate it all at once though I didn't and saved some for the next day. The cake is so good that it really did leave me craving more and as I'm writing about it now my mouth is watering and I could just eat some now. 





I have saved the tin also as its perfect for storing things in. 

This cake is perfect for sharing but also perfect just for one person to have alone. If I received this through my letterbox as a gift for my birthday I would be delighted, it makes such a good little gift! (Hint Hint to anyone reading!!)

The cake costs £14.99 but costs extra if your wanting a different flavour. I think its well worth what it costs and would definitely consider buying one for a future gift. Hopefully Lily will start liking cake by her second birthday as its the perfect size of cake for her little hands. 

So is your mouth watering yet? Maybe I can help with that. Baker Days has kindly offered a chance to win a 5" Letterbox Cake of your choice to personalise and try. To win, enter below on the Gleam app.
