Baker Days Review & Giveaways

Back in February I was kindly sent a lovely letterbox cake through the post in preparation for Mothers Day. When Baker days offered to send Sam a cake for Fathers day I jumped at the chance, I knew he would love it, and it will be his first Fathers day this year. Baker days have a massive range of cakes for various different occasions, Birthdays, graduation, new baby, christening or even just a thank you cake. The thing that I loved last time, and still love is the fact that the cake fits through the letterbox, giving you the freedom to go out and not worry about coming home to a red card from the post man, and having to pick your parcel up. Might I just add I absolutely hate missing deliveries. It also means you can purchase a letterbox cake for someone as a surprise gift, you wont have to worry if they are in or not. We are getting a cake for Emily's Grandad for Fathers day and I know he will love it too. 


Each cake is delivered in a little tin, with a card, and some candles. Personally I thought this was a lovely touch. When I previously purchased one of the letterbox cakes I did worry that the cake would get squished in the post, but this is something that you don't need to worry about. The cake is really well packaged. The tin has little holes in the lid which allows the cake to breathe, which stops the cake from sweating. Inside was the 5" cake, I chose the super dad design for Sam, we are massive fans of superhero's in our household so I knew he would love it. There is a small piece of paper attached to the bottom of the cake stand which allows you to lift the cake out without ruining it. I didn't tell Sam the cake was coming, and when I gave it to him he was absolutely thrilled. The design was beautiful and I love the personalised aspect of it. It gave it that extra touch and showed that thought went into the gift. 


There are 5 different flavours to chose from, vanilla sponge, chocolate chip sponge, fruit cake, gluten wheat free and dairy wheat free. We have tried the chocolate one, and it was delicious, this time we were sent the vanilla sponge, which Sam was thrilled about because he prefers vanilla to chocolate. Before we opened the cake you could smell it, and it smells gorgeous! The design is so pretty that you don't want to cut into it, but obviously you will because it is cake, and cake is meant for eating right? The vanilla sponge was really moist, I didn't find the icing as sweet as it was with the chocolate sponge which I was happy with because I'm not a fan of overly sweet cake. Overall, we loved the cake, and we will be purchasing one for Emily's Grandad for Fathers day, I know he will love the chocolate one.


Baker days letter box cakes are £14.99 with free postage within a 7 day delivery period. If you need the cake sooner you can pay the additional postage. This price is for the standard sponge cake, depending on your filling the price of the cake will slightly adjust. I think that £14.99 is a reasonable price when you take into consideration the cake is personalised and convenient, and I would happily pay for the cake again in the future.
