Recently the lovely people at Baker Days sent me a Letterbox cake to review. With Mothers Day on its way on March 15th it was the perfect opportunity to try one of their Mothers Day designs. I opted for the gorgeous Special Mothers Day cake with it's delicate floral design in pinks with light turquoise background.
Small Party Cake (10-12 portions, 7 inch cakes), Medium Party Cake (18-25 portions, 9 inch cakes), Large Party Cake (40-55 portions, 12 inch cakes) as well as cupcakes in boxes of 12.
The cake was the Letterbox sized cake and it dropped straight through the post no problem at all. Arriving in a sturdy cardboard box the cake was then encased in a lovely Baker Days tin and wrapped in packaging inside the tin too. There was also a blank card for your own message to the recipient. The cake was only 2.5cm in depth and an ideal gift for someone to show that you are thinking of them on their special occasion if you can't get to see them. The cakes do get bigger in depth when you buy the larger sized cakes. You can also choose to have cakes personalised too.
The cake looked lovely and too good to eat but it had to be done. It fitted neatly into the tin which was ideal for keeping any leftovers in too. I cut into it and the sponge was lovely and soft. There was buttercream underneath the sponge and the icing was lovely and soft too. I cut it into very small portions although ideally it would have been four nice sized portions to eat. I wanted to make it last by eating small pieces at a time!
I had the vanilla sponge and you can also choose chocolate chip sponge, fruit cake, gluten free and dairy free cakes for small additional costs for the Letterbox size.
The Letterbox cake costs from £14.99, Small Cake is £26.99, Medium Cake is £36.99 and Large cake (plus free helium balloon is £56.99.
This was a real treat, it was a lovely surprise when it dropped through the post, the Letterbox cake being ideal to send as a surprise as it will just go straight through the normal post so no waiting around for the postman!
The cake was delicious, the sponge was lovely and soft and the design was amazingly gorgeous and eye catching. Combined with all of the other designs to choose from including the personalised options too this is definitely a service I would highly recommend to everyone.
As well as the Mothers Day designs available which are ideal for Mothers Day in just over 2 weeks time they have many more categories to browse and choose cakes from to send. If you order before 2pm they can deliver the next working day to virtually anywhere in the UK.
