Bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review*

As a blogger I have a list of brands I would love to work with one day, some small and some huge, some beauty, some food, and so many others, and believe it or not bakerdays has always been one of them. I first found out about them on Twitter around the time I started my blog and I thought then that I would love to get the chance to work with them one day, so to be writing this post on their cakes a few years later, makes me so happy. 

If you didn't know, bakerdays is a personalised celebration cake specialist and they provide cakes for all sorts of occassions! You can personalise the cakes with your own message or even upload a photo onto one of their designs, and you can pick the flavour, either traditional sponge, rich chocolate chip, lemon drizzle, gluten wheat free sponge, dairy free sponge or fabulous fruit. They'll even design a cake especially for you if you ask and can't pick from the range on their website! All cakes are handmade to order and only the best ingredients are used so no need to worry about the quality. The cakes are available in a variety of sizes - letterbox gift cake, small party cake, medium cake or large cake. I was sent one of the letterbox cakes to review, which was perfect as I tend to miss deliveries and with one of these I didn't have to worry about that happening! These fit perfectly through the letterbox and are packaged securely in a protective cake tin and a bespoke bakerdays box, to make sure it survives a drop to the floor!
When it came to picking a cake and personalising it, I spoke to George and we decided to get one made for his brothers, as it was their birthday earlier this month. We've both already had our birthday this year and it's not our anniversary until July so we thought it was a perfect opportunity to get a birthday cake for them, as we would have gone and bought one anyway from somewhere for the weekend. I had no idea which design to go for as they had so many to choose from but I ended up picking the Do I Smell Cake? letterbox cake, chocolate chip flavoured, and I personalised it to say Happy Birthday Boys! I just love the dog on it, I think it's so cute. I received this cake on Tuesday 23rd which is exactly when I asked for. You can pick when you want your cake delivering, even up to 1 year in advance, and I wanted to get one in time for the weekend just gone as I knew thats when we were next having them over to stop. I wanted to get it a few days before we actually needed it just in case their was any problems and as they stay fresh for 14 days, I didn't need to worry about the taste being affected at all. I kept it in the kitchen in its tin until Friday when they arrived.
The cake arrived in perfect condition and I was so impressed by it. I was so happy with the design and just how it had all turned out. We all couldn't wait to cut into it and see what it tasted like. As the letterbox cakes are quite small, these are perfect for 4 people. We all had a slice each and it was just delicious. The cake had kept so well, tasted so fresh, like it literally just been made, honestly I was so happy with it. The rich chocolate chip cake was just delicious, so moist and spongy, just lovely. The icing on top, which I'm not normally too fussed about was absolutely gorgeous. So smooth and sweet. Just everything about it was perfect, I'm so glad we had the chance to try out one of these, as it was just as good if not better than a shop bought cake, and so special.
I did get a few pictures of the cake when we cut into it, but when I went back to check them, they had all come out blurry which is extremely irritating but there is nothing I can do about it now. I just wish I could have shown you a picture of the chocolate cake inside.

If you can't already tell, I just loved this cake, as did everyone else. It tasted lovely, was the perfect size and just looks adorable. It looked even better up close. The letterbox cakes are £14.99 which isn't the cheapest, but you're paying for the quality, personalisation and convenience. If you're not someone who can whip up a cake, or are too busy to get out to buy one, for birthdays and anniversaries aswell as so many other occassions one of these would be brilliant. No need to worry about being in while it's delivered, and you can choose exactly when you want it for. I'll definitely be getting a cake from bakerdays again in the future.
