bakerdays Personalised Letterbox Cake Review

AD - GIFTED | Would anyone turn down an opportunity to review cake? Because I surely didn't!! The lovely team over at bakerdays got in contact with me, and kindly offered me the chance to pick out one of their amazing letterbox gift cakes to try and share my feedback. 

If you haven't heard of bakerdays before, here's a little bit about them -> The business was founded by Andrea Guzyova and greeting card entrepreneur Alan Hawkes, whose passion for cakes (mainly eating them) is only exceeded by a knack of creating the perfect cake design for every occasion.

There really is something for everyone and their preferences. 

bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review

For my letterbox cake*, I picked the 5 inch Letterbox Gift cake with the Christmas Stockings design and I opted to have the traditional sponge recipe filling 
with jam & buttercream. You really can't go wrong with this classic combo! The design of the cake was super cute, bold and colourful. You can opt for a personalised version, but I wanted to try to keep it as simple as possible.

Packaging wise, the cake arrived in a really sturdy cardboard box, that did indeed fit nicely through my letterbox.  I was really impressed with how much care and attention is put into how well it was packaged, it felt very secure and the cake was kept in perfect condition. No damage whatsoever.

In terms of taste, I couldn't fault it. It was beautifully moist, light and fluffy, with a good balance of cake and icing. The buttercream was super smooth and flavoursome, with added bursts of fruity and zingy fresh raspberry jam. For a simple and traditional sponge cake, it was a very good one.

Overall I think that the idea of bakerdays Letterbox Cakes is great – and I know that I’d definitely love to send a personalised cake to friends or family for a special occasion with the knowledge that it would be waiting for them when they arrive home. It's a super cool and genius service where you can pick, customise and personalise sweet treats for any occasion. However, I think that the pricing of £14.99 is a little bit expensive for what is essentially a small cake in a gift tin by post, but the care and attention that goes into the finished product is definitely worth it and I would 100% recommend.
