Top 5 | Baker Days Letterbox Cake Review

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. πŸ™‚

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.

IΒ  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. πŸ™‚ I eventually got on with checking it out and

Here are the top 5 things I like about it.

Baker Days Letterbox Cake Review1. 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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚


The Letterbox cake costs between Β£14.99, an affordable price

  1. I think sending cake to celebrate is a fantastic idea. More useful than a card or flowers!

    • Very good point, depending on the card you’re sending. I didn’t even think of that; I was carried away with how yummy and cute it is; and what a lovely way of sending different kinds of greetings it is. I really like that it’s a different way of celebrating with others and having fun; cheaper taking someone out for a meal πŸ˜‰

  2. I recently read this quote, which totally sums it up: “A party without cake is just a meeting!”

  3. I think sending a cake is a lovely idea, it can be shared by a family and everyone can enjoy it

  4. I personally would much prefer getting a cake than a card or flowers (especially a chocolate one).

  5. I think it’s great as long as the occasion isn’t time sensitive – you don’t want it to go off! πŸ™‚

  6. I think it is a lovely idea and i am sure the recipient would love receiving one

  7. I think its a great idea, im not a huge fan of flowers because of having to clean them up once they die! aha

  8. It is a really novel thing to do, especially if you can’t be with the person and give them a normal birthday cake.

  9. I think it’s a brilliant idea πŸ™‚ As long as the person likes cake, of course! It can be far more personal than a bunch of flowers or a shop bought card, and definitely more tasty. I know which I’d rather have πŸ™‚

  10. I can vouch for these they are delicious & who wouldn’t love to receive one of these through the post πŸ™‚

  11. As long as you know the person you’re sending it to has a sweet tooth it’s a great idea. I find a lot of cards have a lovely sentiment but most end up in the bin…. xx

  12. I think it is a great idea especially since someone sent me a cheesecake by post and it was such a lovely surprise

  13. This would make a cake really special – the printing looks really clear on the cake to which is impressive.

  14. I think it’s a great idea to send a cake (especially for the recipient) but I would still send a card as well. I would love it if I got a surprise cake in the post.

  15. It sounds lovely. I never would have thought of this – must remember for the next birthday where I normally send flowers or something.

    • Yeah … cards are lovely but the question of what you do with them is bound to come up at some point. Cakes on the other hand are not just lovely, but also yummy and you know what to do with them beyond displaying them. πŸ™‚
