Who doesn’t like a good-looking piece of cake? There might be some people, but I’m not one of them. So, when Baker Days asked me to check out their letterbox cake a while ago, there wasn’t much to think about. 🙂
I chose the cake I wanted and they sent it to me for my Baker Days letterbox cake review. I was pleased to receive my World Breastfeeidng Week themed cake on the last day of World Breastfeeding Week.
I kept this really cute cake in its beautiful box for as long as I could resist tasting it; I was quite tempted to frame it and display it. 🙂 I eventually got on with checking it out and
Here are the top 5 things I like about it.
1. Lovely Presentation
The cake arrived through our letterbox as indicated in its name. As you can probably imagine, I was eager to open it and check it out. I was and still am impressed with the cake’s cute little, vintage looking storage tin box. It has tiny neat holes in the cover, I assume, to keep fresh air circulating in the tin. This actually adds to the design.
The cake was wrapped in a sealed transparent wrapping within the tin; with instructions about how to remove it. I was able to put the cake back into its wrapper over and over again, without the wrapping tearing.
It also came with a pretty card and some sweets; lovely, isn’t it! “Just for you”, says the writing on the box; and ‘just for me’, I definitely felt the cake was.
2. Yummy Taste
O yes … yum yum … really lovely taste. I’m not an icing kinda girl, but I must confess that I had some of the icing. All with a sweet tooth, like me, will definitely enjoy this cake. It’s designed to be cut into 3 to 4 portions but you can get more portions out of it, depending on how small you want them to be.
3. Personalised Cake
I really like the fact that you can choose so many things about the cake you want, in your own time, from the comfortable of your own space. You can personalise and order your cake from home, work, or when you’re out and about. All you need is a device connected to the internet, and your payment card. 🙂
They have many design options to choose from, when customizing the look of your cake.
I choose the option to ‘design my own cake‘, from the side menu on their website. They offer 19 templates for this option, and I chose number 19. I then emailed them the picture and text I wanted on my cake, and my, what a result! ‘Wow’ was the word, on my first view of the cake; the image on the cake was picture perfect. I still can’t get over the high quality of the identical replication of the image I emailed to Baker Days.
4. Wide Range
I really like the fact that Baker Days offer a huge range of designs, 500 of them! They state on their website that they “have the largest selection of Personalised Cakes in the UK”; impressive, isn’t it. They also offer a choice for 4 cake sizes, from the Letterbox cake at 5″ to their Large size cake at 12″. As if that isn’t enough, they have 6 different flavours to meet a range of tastes and diet: Vanilla, Chocolate, Fruit, Half & Half, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free.
There is so much to choose from, and guaranteed you will find a cake that works for you.
They even offer unpersonalised cakes, and a bespoke design service to help their customers design the cake that fits their occasion; and they make cupcakes too.
5. Alternative Celebrating
The letterbox cake with its mini party pack, whilst it doesn’t feed many, makes a cute present for a range of events. What a tasty way to send ones greetings on all occasions … forget cards and flowers, bring on Baker Days’ Letterbox cake.
I see myself ordering it for the birthdays family, friends, and colleagues, for example. It’s so lovely that you don’t have to wait around at home for its delivery; It FITS through your LETTER BOX!
Even more, it stays fresh for 14 days. I kept a piece to try on day 14 after I received mine; whilst I couldn’t remember how it tasted on the day I received it, I was surprised that it still tasted nice. I stored the cake in its wrapper and tin until I finished eating it.
It also lovely to learn that next day delivery is available on cakes ordered before 2pm; very handy for those moments when life is really fast paced.
The despatch date and ingredients, as well as your order number, are listed on the back of the cake tray. I must say that I wasn’t keen on the E numbers listed on mine but it’s not enough to keep me from eating it again. 🙂
The Letterbox cake costs between £14.99, an affordable price

What do you think about sending cakes to celebrate events, instead of the traditional card, and perhaps flowers?
