Cake... through your letterbox?? | Review

Cake cake cake.

Have I got your attention?? ;)
Cake delivered to your door. Fantastic concept if you ask me. But hey, I LOVE cake [as you can probably tell! Hips don't lie!] so when Baker Days contacted me asking if I would review their letterbox cakes, it didn't take me long to accept, and set about waiting beneath my letterbox, mouth wide open. [Okay I jest ;)]

So, Baker Days let you design your own cake, online, and pop it into the post to you, if you order before 2pm it'll arrive the very next day!
The cakes are handmade, using their very own fresh buttercream and they guarantee that your cake will arrive fresh, on time and in tact! ;)

Their cakes come in 4 different sizes ranging from a small 5 inch letter box cake, up to a large 12 inch party cake.

I was reviewing their letter box cake.
I set about choosing my design. There are so many categories to choose from, you will find a cake for any occasion, a birthday cake, a new job cake, a thank you cake or just an 'I think you're great' cake.
I chose a 'Keep Calm...' design. Then from 5 different recipe options I chose a 'vanilla sponge', filled in my details and it was done.

Within a few days, and almost perfectly timed on James' birthday, a small parcel popped through the letter box.
Inside was this cute little tin, some balloons and candles. Unfortunately the candles had started to melt over the balloons, which was a shame. 
Inside the tin, packed in special packaging, this amazing little cake.

We tried some that evening, it smelt gorgeous and tasted really lovely and fresh. 

Soft, moist vanilla sponge finished off with a yummy buttercream underneath. We all agreed it was lovely!!

I would definitely use Baker Days again, I think it's such a fab idea to send someone a little cake through the post, even if just to tell them you're thinking of them!
The cakes can be personalised with names and photos for that extra special touch. 

Letterbox cakes* are available for £14.99 from 

What do you think? 
Would you try cake through your letterbox?
