Review: Baker Days Letterbox Cake







As someone who loves cakes and baking, this cute little package was warmly welcomed through my letterbox. Who knew it could be this easy to get your hands on some cake? This Letterbox Cake* was kindly sent to me by Baker Days and it's small enough to be delivered with the rest of your post so you don't even need to be in the house! 

Baker Days offers a selection of creative cakes from small Letterbox Cakes to Large Cakes that are suitable for big parties of corporate events. There are many designs to choose from and you can even come up with some ideas of your own. 

For my cake, I choose the design that says "Keep Calm The Best Is Yet To Come". I just thought that this was such an uplifting message and it's perfect for giving someone a little pick-me-up. It arrived in a reusable tin to keep the cake fresh, and it's great for storing little bits and pieces in once you've devoured the cake!

The cake itself was surprisingly fresh despite the fact that it had been transported all this way. The sponge was firm and I loved the thin buttercream layer between the fondant icing and the sponge. I'm not the biggest fan of fondant icing but I quite liked this and it's quite tasty in moderation. 

Although I prefer doing the baking myself, this is a great alternative when you want to give a cake to someone who doesn't live nearby. A Letterbox Cake will be so much better than sending someone a card or flowers. They also won't be expecting it so it'll be a fantastic surprise! You can also order a cake for yourself just because you're craving cake....

Have you ordered from Baker Days before?
