Before Christmas I was sent a personalised cake from Bakerdays to review. The cake was delivered in a letterbox sized box and when I opened the packaging this is what I found:
The contents were a card, balloons, a party blower and a tin. Inside the tin was a cake that had been well protected against the vagaries of the postal service so it looked perfect.
A couple of days later it was my uncle's birthday party so I saved the cake to take and share as several family members are cake makers! It was only then that I fully unwrapped the cake and saw what it was like on the top:
A lovely girlie choice of decoration and a nice message. The cake itself was a carrot cake and the packaging said it served 3-4 people but we all had a smaller piece just to get a taste. It has a slightly spicy taste and was nicely moist. Some of the testers found it too sweet for their taste. It all get eaten up though!
The basic sponge versions of these letterbox cakes are priced at £14.99 which isn't cheap but it does include first class postage. The carrot cake option is an extra £1.20 there are also fruit cake (£1.80), gluten and wheat free (£1.80) or chocolate versions (£2). If you want a bigger cake then a 8-12 portions start at £26.99 or a 50-60 portion large cake for £45! You can also order a dozen personalised cupcakes from £24.99.
Personally I wouldn't spend that much on a cake but it was very well presented and I enjoyed the cake I ate. If you need to post a cake then this could a good solution.
