Review: Bakerdays Letterbox Cake

bakerdays-letterbox-cake

Last month, I was given the opportunity to review a fabulous letterbox cake from personalised cake company Bakerdays - naturally, I jumped at the chance!

Based in Nottinghamshire, Bakerdays supply fully customisable cakes, cupcakes and balloons for almost every special occasion imaginable. From birthday parties to weddings, religious celebrations and much more, there is a cake for every occasion! Each cake is entirely bespoke and can be tailored to suit your needs, whether it's through custom text or printing a photo of your choice onto the cake's icing. Don't forget to choose the cake's size and flavour for a truly individual foodie experience.

As the most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching, I was offered the opportunity to trial one of this season's lovely new festive designs. From traditional Christmas motifs to new and original ideas, browsing the website, you're certainly never going to find yourself short of design inspiration at Bakerdays!

However, after some careful thought and consideration, I eventually settled on a classic chocolate letterbox cake (perfect for people like me who are out at work for the majority of the day!) in a fun festive design.

The staff simply couldn't have been more friendly, polite and ready to help, and my cake arrived through the door just a few days after it was baked and sent to be posted. A miracle really, considering the amount of Black Friday and Cyber Monday orders flooding the postal network at the moment!

I must admit, I was a little concerned about the state the cake would be in when it arrived. However, upon opening the parcel, I was pleased to see that the cake was packaged safely and securely in a special cake tin before being placed in the package. This careful and considered approach to the postage and packaging allowed my cake to make it through the post unscathed and in perfect condition - no faults there!

When it came to the design itself, I chose the fun "daschund through the snow" graphic. Of course, the text underneath is completely customisable, although I plumped for a simple "Merry Christmas" to suit the season. Despite being printed directly onto edible icing, the quality of the design was great, easily readable and featuring attractive bright colours.

It didn't take long for us to cut the cake and divide it up, sharing it round so the whole family could have a taste. Although it's not a particularly big cake, it makes the perfect size for a family of 3-4, with everyone able to enjoy a delicious slice. Despite travelling through the postal system, the cake itself was still nice and moist, with the rich chocolate flavour adding an extra touch of indulgence.

The Bakerdays letterbox cake was a big hit in our household, and with its quick and easy customisable design experience and unique yet useful letterbox-fitting charm, I'll definitely be ordering again in the future!
