Birthday Cake with Bakerdays

birthday-cake, letterbox-cake, bakerdays

AD* | Last Christmas, I had the chance to review an incredible Christmas letterbox cake from bakerdays. The cake was amazing and exceeded all my expectations, so when I was offered the opportunity to review another letterbox cake, naturally I jumped at the chance!

It was great timing, too, as the beginning of August is one of the busiest weeks of the year for me in terms of birthdays. Plenty of celebrations to organise, but more importantly, plenty of opportunities for cake!

Last weekend was my dad's birthday, and since I know how much he enjoyed Bakerdays' wonderful cake we were gifted at Christmas, I was certain that a birthday cake of his very own would go down a treat.

What are Letterbox Cakes?

Prior to collaborating with bakerdays, I had never heard of the letterbox cake before. A truly unique gift idea that is as innovative as it is effective, the letterbox cake is basically what it says on the tin - a cake that is small enough to fit through your letterbox. This makes it the ideal gift for those with busy lifestyles and loved ones who may not live near you - everyone deserves a special cake on their birthday, right?

Bakerdays have a large selection of themes, styles and designs available to choose from - you'll find yourself spoiled for choice! After browsing through the available options, I eventually settled on a beer-themed birthday design. The perfect choice for my real ale-loving dad!

Luckily, my chosen design was already optimised for the occasion, with the text reading:
"Cheers Dad! Have a fantastic day"
However, the cakes are completely customisable which meant that even if I had chosen a different design, I would have been able to personalise it for my dad which adds a lovely little extra touch.

Adding a Personal Touch

For the cake itself, you can choose the size of your letterbox cake and decide what type of cake you want it to be. With options including traditional Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle and chocolate, there is something for everyone! It's also worth noting that bakerdays also offer dairy-free and gluten-free options, meaning that everyone can enjoy their cakes regardless of any special dietary requirements.

Packaged safely and securely, our cake arrived unscathed after its journey through the postal system. The finished design looked just as good on the cake as it did on the website, and I am told that the Victoria sponge cake was delicious!

Like last time, the order process simply couldn't have been any smoother. From start to finish, the team were friendly and helpful - I am pleased to say that my second experience with bakerdays more than lived up to the first! What's more, dad loved his cake!

If you are looking for the perfect birthday gift, look no further than a personalised letterbox cake from bakerdays.
