A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to BakerDays.com who asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their cakes. The unique selling point of BakerDays.com is that all of their cakes come delivered to you through the normal post i.e literally through your letterbox. In the style of Jerry Maguire they had me at the mention of “cake” so I of course jumped at the chance to be offered one of their cakes to try – who wouldn’t’!?!?
After the excitement of free cake died down I took a look at the BakerDays website which can be found HERE and was really impressed with the offering that they have. Being able to deliver straight to you house is not their only great selling point.
The thing I was most impressed with was the variety of both cakes and designs that they had available. You can choose a number of different types of cake from standard vanilla or chocolate to gluten or dairy free, and the amount of designs that are available is quite astonishing, far exceeding anything you could possibly find on the high street! Such as graduation cakes, new jobs, baby showers, holy communion, driving test cakes and many many more. To literally add the icing on the cake (hehe) the cakes can also be personalised with your own message or even photo!
As the Christmas season is upon us I chose to have a chocolate cake decorated in a personalised Christmas design. When our box landed on our doorstep needless to say I was very excited to see what was inside (plus a little bit worried about finding a smashed up cake) When we opened the box I was again suitably impressed, not only did we receive the cake in absolutely perfect condition. But it came packaged in a lovely cake tin along side a card and envelope we could write on and a Christmas cracker. Everything was perfect, I can really see how these would make a great gift to send to a loved one as a brilliant alternative to getting a bunch of flowers delivered somewhere.
Despite the cake arriving at 9am we managed to wait until lunch to sample it. The cake itself was lovely and moist inside and the icing was fresh and soft, again I would say it was of a higher quality then you could find on the high street and we thoroughly enjoyed eating it : )
So a big thank you goes out to the lovely people at BakerDays.com for letting me sample and enjoy one of their cakes. I’m hoping to do a competition with Bakerdays to allow a reader to win their own cake also, but just have some details to firm up fist, so watch this space…….
Note: For the purpose of this review BakerDays.com provided me with a letterbox cake free of change. All opinions expressed are my own
