Baker Days Letterbox Cake* Review

Last week I was contacted by the Baker Days team on Twitter, about trying one of their letterbox cakes. After a few emails, it was sorted for me to have a personalized 5 inch letterbox cake. I picked a simple cake from their website, and attached an image I wanted on the cake.

There are a variety of cake choices, such as vanilla sponge as chocolate - along with different sizes. I had the vanilla sponge option as it was the basic one. This size and type of cake usually retails for £14.99.

It arrived on Tuesday, and came with some Love Hearts and in it's own little tin. I love that I can keep the tin after consuming the cake! It claims to be able to stay fresh for 14 days, which is a long time - but I never have cake for this long to know if this is true or not!

The cake was nice and simple, and I loved that it had a nice picture of my, my sister and dad on it! I'm quite tempted to order another one to send to my sister!

For someone who is super fussy with icing, I really enjoyed this! It was really tasty and soft, which I really liked. The sponge was moist and a little crumbly, which is how I like it! It was big enough for 4 portions! I shared half between me and my Dad on the Tuesday and he gave it rave reviews - but said he personally wouldn't pay the price for this gift, even though it was yummy! I then had the other half with Cameron on Wednesday and he really liked it too - and he is super fussy with food!

I would definitely buy this as a gift for a birthday or present of sorts as it's a lovely personal touch if you can add pictures. The price is a little high for my liking, but any lower would mean compromising on the quality!

Have you tried any Baker Days products before, and if so, what did you think? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

  1. I love the idea of cake delivered through the letterbox, but agree with your dad about the price. I would love to try one of these, though, and they would make great gifts! x x

    1. It's a great concept, but the price is a little high! I can understand why, but maybe drop it a few ££ to make it better! xx

  2. This is such a great gift idea! I love that it stays fresh for a while too, glad you enjoyed it lovely!

    Much love, Jade X

    1. it's perfect for a quick gift and lasts a good few days from what other reviews have said - not that i'll ever know, as I eat cake fast!! xx

  3. Getting cakes delivered through the mail box sounds like a fab idea. The cake looks great!
