On Monday it was Oliver’s first birthday. He had a proper birthday cake at his party but obviously I wanted a little one for the actual day. I was so pleased when bakerdays got in contact with me, it was the perfect opportunity to review their cake!
“bakerdays is a Personalised Celebration Cake Specialist, providing quality personalised cakes for all occasions. The delicious range of recipes and sizes are available for delivery 6 days a week, and if you order before 2pm, bakerdays can deliver the very next day! The Letterbox cake is the baby of the bakerdays family. Being just 5” in diameter, it fits perfectly through the Letterbox allowing you to surprise anyone with the most delicious personalised gift.”
They make a good variety of sponges, vanilla, chocolate chip. red velvet, fruit cake, gluten wheat free and dairy free, so they cater for most people. It arrived very quickly, annoyingly the postman rang the doorbell so I didn’t get to test whether or not it would fit through the letterbox, but it looked like it should! I loved that it isn’t just a cake, there’s a card, balloons, candles and a hooter. The tin is really sweet that it arrives in, as well, it would be perfect for a baked gift!
How sweet is it? I picked the animal design and I love that you can upload a photo onto it. They have cakes for every occasion you could think of, birthdays, anniversary’s, valentines, hen parties, baby shower, thank yous. Basically if you think of an occasion I am pretty sure they would cater for it! I even found an instagram cake on there! They don’t just make letterbox cakes, they do 7, 9 and 12 inch cakes as well, the largest caters for up to 55 portions. I think the letterbox cake would make a great gift to a friend or relative if they don’t live close by.
How was it?
It was perfectly soft, even though we had it for a couple of days before we actually used it. It’s only one layer of cake, so there’s no buttercream. I was worried that it might not be as nice without a filling, but it was just as delicious. I’m not usually a fan of icing, but this was the perfect amount and not too sweet so I happily devoured it! Oliver also agreed it tasted great! The cake was gone within the day, so it definitely has the Miller household approval.
