Small and perfectly formed! This little beauty was such a pleasant surprise after a long and rather stressful first few days back at work. I’d been watching my ProPoints in anticipation of biting into a sweet treat at some point in the week in order to curb my urges and this was the perfect antidote!
Perfectly wrapped, my Letterbox cake from Baker Days came in a lovely presentation box with balloons, candles, a gift card and a noise maker (which of course was the first thing Princess noticed). I chose the ‘keep calm and carry on’ design for my cake but with over 300 designs and 6 flavours to choose from it took a long time to pick just one!
Letterbox cakes are created to be small enough to be posted through the letterbox of the recipient, hence the name! Clever huh? Starting from £14.99 it would make a nice treat from your usual run of the mill gift of flowers or chocolates for birthday/ anniversary/ new baby gifts. The cake itself was tasty and not too sweet. The finish was superb and it hurt me to cut it. Princess had no qualms and quite happily hacked my face off the cake with her blunt kiddy knife.
The Baker Days website was very easy to manouvre and had me hooked for ages, the process of ordering the cake was seamless and delivery really quick. The small letterbox cake fed four of us with a cup of tea nicely and there was still quite a bit left for any visitor who wanted to polish the rest off. (I’m on Weight Watchers, gone are the days of eating a whole cake by myself!) I can see many occasions when I could send a letter box cake to a friend or family member. Baker Day also do larger cakes and I’m keen to try out some of their other flavours!
I received the Baker Days Letter Box Cake free of charge for the purpose of this review.
