Bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review & Giveaway*

In May last year I collaborated with bakerdays, a brand I'd been wanting to work with for a long time and I got to review one of their Letterbox cakes. You can read my full review here but in short, me and the rest of the family who tried the cake, absolutely loved it and the personalised design was much better than I could have ever expected. As I loved working with them last year, I was so happy when they got in touch and said they'd love to collaborate again this year, and as my birthday was in January, it was kind of a perfect fit! I decided on a cake for myself this year and again, I am so impressed!
If you've not heard of bakerdays before then where have you been?! They are growing and growing in popularity and it's easy to see why. They provide cakes for all sorts of occassions, letting you personalise them with your own message or picture and you can pick from a variety of flavours. All cakes are handmade to order and only the best ingredients are used so there is no need to worry about the quality. Like last time I was sent one of the Letterbox cakes to review, and what is so great about these is that they do just fit through your letterbox with no issues! No worries about if they'll survive the drop to the floor or get through the door, they are packaged securely in a protective cake tin so no damage can be done. 
The design I went for this time was the Panda Cake which I had personalised to say 'Tiffany have a wonderful day!'. Pandas are one of my favourite animals so this seemed like the obvious choice and look how cute it is! Like last time, it looked even better than I expected and it almost looked too good to eat. onto the taste which is obviously very important. I went for the traditional sponge flavour this time as last time I went for the chocolate chip and it was just as delicious! It was moist and spongy, not too heavy, and the icing on top was sweet but not overpowering which I find sometimes happens with birthday cakes like this. Everything about it tasted beautiful and there was the perfect amount for 4 of us to share, though you could definitely cut it into smaller slices if you like.
I think these letterbox cakes are such a brilliant idea, they really do taste beautiful and the designs always come out so well. They have such a variety to choose from, including birthday cakes like mine, christmas cakes, easter cakes, new job cakes and so much more, there really is something for every occassion. One of the reasons I think these cakes in particular are so good is because there isn't always time to make your own for a birthday and shop bought ones can be very hit and miss, whereas with these you can really tell so much time, effort and care has gone into each one. The letterbox cakes are priced at £14.99 but they also do small, medium and large cakes so brilliant if you have a party coming up, and even cupcakes and personalised balloons are available to buy! I wouldn't hesitate to order from bakerdays in future, they are so convenient and as you can order up to a year in advance, it takes so much stress away when it comes to birthdays. They also stay fresh for up to 14 days so if you get it a bit early, no need to worry as the cake will still be perfect on the day.
I don't have a bad word to say about bakerdays, they definitely helped make my birthday and I can't wait to try more from them in future. If you have a birthday coming up or another special occassion, make sure to check out their website. You can also enter my GIVEAWAY over on Twitter where you can win your own personalised letterbox cake!
