Review - Bakerdays Letterbox Cake

Since I started blogging a few month's ago I have discovered so many brilliant companies that I had never heard of before, one of them was Bakerdays who make cake's that are then delivered via post which is small enough to fit through your letterbox. I thought that this was a brilliant idea as it enables people to send friends or relatives that they may not be able to see or who they want to surprise a personalised cake through the door as a nice surprise.

Recently Bakerdays asked me if I would like the chance to review a one of there letterbox cake's myself and of course I said yes, what pregnant woman would turn down cake! I went on the website and was impressed with all the different designs and types of cakes on offer they do everything from birthday cakes, new babycakes to cupcakes and if there is not a ready-made design you want you can even just send them an image of what you would like and they will make it for you.

The website was easy to use and the only problem I had was chosen a cake I liked as there were so many lovely designs on offer. I eventually decided to get a pretty girly cake for the girls as they both love cake and sweet stuff. I picked a design I liked off their website and then added my own personalised text and then I selected which flavour cake I would like, I selected plain sponge cake there was also fruit and chocolate cake on offer too and they do gluten and dairy free cakes also.

A few days later are cake arrived with our normal mail it came in a small white box which easily fitted through the letterbox, when we opened the box the cake was inside a lovely metal cake tin and was in perfect condition and looked and smelled amazing. There was also a small card, candles, balloon's and a party blower in the box as well which I thought were lovely touches.

The cake is fairly small - obviously as it has to be to fit through your letterbox, but we cut it into four and they were generous sized portions. The cake was fresh and tasted really nice and the icing tasted amazing much better then a supermarket brought cake.

Overall I was really impressed with Bakerdays they have so many cakes to chose from on their website they even do larger cakes as well as there letterbox cakes. Their website is really easy to use and the cakes arrive in perfect condition and if you order a letterbox cake it does not matter if the person you are sending it to is in or not as it will fit through there letterbox with there normal mail. And most importantly the cakes arrive looking and tasting amazing and are much better than any supermarket cake and with much nicer packaging.

* Disclosure: I was sent this cake for free from Bakerdays for the purpose of this review, however, all words are my own honest view of the cake we received and I was not paid for this post.
