Celebrating with Cake – Review
We’ve had a lot to celebrate, recently. We went to our first Pride as a family and T reached 4 months of age.
So what better way is there to celebrate than with cake? Like most mums on maternity leave (that’s my reasoning anyway) you spend a lot of time grabbing quick bites to eat. This is because you often have zero time to make something, and/or you need something that doesn’t require cutlery because one had already contains a boob/bottle. Cake fills these requirements (and my mouth).
So when we were offered to try some cake from the lovely guys and gals of Baker Days, we jumped at the chance! Baker Days offer a unique service in that they deliver cakes straight to your door. We were offered the ever-so-cute letterbox cake.
The cake comes in a sweet tin within a larger box that really does fit through your letter box. The box also housed a blank card and some love hearts. Looking at Baker Days’ website, you have the opportunity to personalise your own cake and have candles placed with your letter box cake box as well, which is a nice finishing touch!
After waiting eagerly for the wife to come home we cracked the box open and politely took a quarter each. The cake itself was surprisingly tasty. I know it wouldn’t have tasted awful (it is cake after all) but I did wonder whether it would stay fresh whilst in transit without it tasting overly sweet. I didn’t expect it to be so light and fluffy, being so small and technically one half of a two tier cake. I also expected it to be quite dense or at least dry, but it was neither. The cake had a lovely buttercream within, was topped with soft icing, and then decorated with our logo which was a sweet finishing touch – it was delicious! I was most impressed that the logo came out so clear!
This would make the perfect little gift for a birthday or celebration. What I like most is that you don’t have to worry about the recipient being in when it’s delivered – who said you can’t order cake from your sofa and have it delivered the next day?
