Bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review & Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to try and review one of Bakerdays letterbox cakes. After seeing them on other blogs, I could not wait to try one for myself.

Bakerdays specialize in personalized celebration cakes. They make cakes of different sizes as well as a choice of flavors.  You can order from them 6 days a week and if you order before 2pm you can get next day delivery.

The letterbox cake is the baby of the cakes at Bakerdays. At just 5 inches in diameter it does what you would expect it too, come through your letterbox! So, no matter how far you are from your loved ones, you can still send them a fantastic surprise with a letterbox cake.

I went through to the Bakerdays website (link here) to decide which cake to get. It was a very hard choice. they have so many great designs for so many occasions, I was in cake heaven! Finally, hubby and I decided to get an anniversary cake. Although our anniversary is not until the end of next month, we decided this was a great excuse to celebrate early.

Order placed, I sat by the letterbox eagerly awaiting my  our cake.

The letterbox opened and through it popped a lovely white box. I was like a little kid at Christmas. The only problem was I said I would wait til hubby got home to open it (He thought I would eat it all myself….).

After what felt like an eternity, he was finally home so I (we) could open the cake. Opening the box I was delighted with what I saw, a lovely little cake that smelt amazing.

The cake came in a lovely little tin that stopped it from being damaged in transit, there was also a little card and little pack of loveheart sweets in the box. I thought this was a lovely touch.

The wording on the cakes reads “Mitch, I love you almost as much as I love CAKE! Happy Anniversary love Ali xxx”. This was very apt for us as A) we are not particularly lovey dovey and B) well he knows where his place is when it comes to sweet stuff lol.

We carefully took the cake out of the tin using the little tab provided and cut a slice out of the cake. It looked so cute I didn’t want to cut it, but my belly told me to get over it lol.

The cake was delicious, the sponge was soft, fluffy and moist. Quite possibly one of the best cakes I have ever tasted. The icing too was very tasty. Hubby agreed that it was lovely.

Overall I was very impressed with the Bakerdays service and the cake. The site was easy to use and understand and the final product was great, I definitely recommend it.

The Letterbox cake is priced at £15.99, which sounds a lot, but for the service, the taste and being able to give your loved ones something unique, well worth it.
