Bakerdays saved my birthday! Them and a pizza takeaway, courtesy of my hubby.
Now I know you think I’m over-exaggerating, but when this little caked popped through my letterbox on Friday afternoon, I nearly burst into tears.
Because it’s my 30th birthday and I’m ill with the Flu!
And not just me – my two daughters have it too. That means I can’t tuck myself into bed with a mug of hot chocolate and sit it out. Oh no, I have to nurse them and cuddle them and force my aching, stiff joints from under the blankets to go and get them drinks and medicine and teddies.
But when the Bakerdays parcel arrived, the mood in our house changed…
Bakerdays Letterbox Cake
Bakerdays have created a cake that can fit through a letterbox (£14.99).
That means you can surprise anyone in the UK with a scrumptious treat whenever you like! And you don’t need to worry about whether they’ll be in or not to collect the parcel (I hate that, don’t you?!) because the Postie can just pop it through the door. Job done!
What You Get
I’ll be honest, when I heard it was a cake that could fit through the letterbox, I was expecting little more than a glorified cupcake… But it’s not – it’s a real cake! We’re a family of 4 and we each had a piece (plus an extra slither) each, and there’s still another portion left in the tin.
And that’s a definite plus point too – it comes in its own cake tin. My daughter has already placed dibs on the tin once we’ve finished with it so she can pretend to bake cakes in her toy kitchen. But it means that the cake arrives in pristine condition.
Then inside the box, we were also sent 3 balloons, 2 candles, a party horn, and a card saying ‘enjoy’. It was a lovely touch and one I certainly wasn’t expecting.
The Icing On The Cake
But the real icing on the cake (yes I’m very proud of that pun!), is that you can completely personalise your cake. There are hundreds of designs to choose from, lots of categories to give you some ideas, or you can even upload a photograph to go on there.
The images are printed onto delicious fondant icing (and regular readers will know what a fan I am of fondant icing). Being a house full of girls (well hubby lives here too but he’s very outnumbered), we had to choose a princess cake.
Ours was a very tasty vanilla sponge with the perfect icing-to-sponge ratio. Yum! My eldest even remarked that it was “better than Pizza Hut!” (there are no greater foodie compliments in her world!)
We are thoroughly sold on the idea and I’ve already picked out the design I’m going to send to my sister-in-law once her baby is born next month!
Here are the links if you’d like find out more or buy your very own personalised letterbox cake for just £14.99 (larger sizes available too).
