When bakerdays offered me the opportunity to review one of their personalised letterbox cakes, I jumped at the chance! I mean, who doesn’t love cake, right? There’s also a nice little discount code at the end of the post too!
bakerdays are an online bakery that specialises in personalised and uniquely designed cakes that can be posted directly to your door. They offer a wide range of flavours and designs for all occasions, so there’s no excuse not to have a little browse of their selection.
Personally, I was a little sceptical at the idea of a letterbox cake. I imagined it coming a little bashed, probably without much of a wow factor. I was pleasantly surprised when I realised it wasn’t actually just delivered in a cardboard box (thankfully!) but in fact was in quite a sweet little tin with no imperfections to be seen. I also really loved the little card that was included as this added a more personable touch. One thing that did catch my eye that I thought was really handy was the ingredient list that is provided. I know this is standard on shop bought cakes, but I hadn’t even thought that something like this would be included in a posted cake, so this was a nice addition and great if you have friends or family with specific dietary requirements.
Now, onto the important bit, the taste. I chose a chocolate cake as this was a gift for my boyfriend’s birthday and he had hinted at wanting a chocolate cake this year. There was a lot more icing than I was expecting, so it’s definitely a very naughty sweet treat, but you could still taste the chocolate. The cake was surprisingly moist, as I had imagined it would have dried out a bit during its travels. Overall, it was really tasty and definitely on par with shop bought birthday cakes.
Prices for these letterboxes cakes start at £14.99, which I will admit I think it is a little much considering the cake is relatively small and quite thin. That being said, you are paying more for the experience than the cake itself. The personalisation is a huge selling point, as well as the novelty of being able to surprise family members or friends with food in the post! The cake itself is also pretty good quality, tastes great and has quite a long shelf life.
Overall, both myself and my boyfriend were really pleased with the letterbox cake. It’s such a fun idea and is an exciting gift to give someone – whether it’s a birthday, Father’s Day or a good luck gift.
