Did Some One Say Cake? Bakerdays Review

So one day while I was cruising around on Twitter a little tweet popped up from Bakerdays asking me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their cakes. I was like ‘hold the phone; review a cake? this looks like something I could definately do!’ and so I sent them a tweet straight back and the rest as they say is history..

I had heard about Bakerdays through a fellow blogger who had also been offered this fantastic opportunity, her review was so good my mouth was watering at the end of it, so you can imagine how excited I was last week when Bakerdays emailed me to say my cake was on its way, but before I start to give you the full lowdown on the cake itself let me first tell you a bit about Bakerdays.

Bakerdays is an internet firm that specialises in what they call ‘letterbox’ cakes – these lovely 5 inch cakes are perfect to send through the post to friends or family. All the cakes come with the option to personalise, you can add pictures or words and Bakerdays have designs suitable for any occasion. The amazing thing about Bakerdays is that you can order your cake right up until 2pm the day before and they will deliver the very next working day, 6 days a week. The websiteย https://www.bakerdays.com/ is easy to navigate and simple to use, personalising the cake takes a few moments, I felt quite spoilt for choice when I came to pick my cake to review. Eventually I chose one of the lovely thank you cakes for my friend Michelle who has been a star since Pudding was born (and I knew she wouldn’t mind sharing her cake with me!)

When the postman knocked on the door the morning after the email I knew it was going to be my cake (sorry Michelle’s cake…) he handed me a small white box, but unfortunately I had to wait for Michelle to come over the following night so I sat and stared at the box for 24 hours… Finally the moment came – we were both quite excited and I was really suprised when I opened the box and found the cake was presented in a lovely little tin, with a card and a tube of love hearts. I was impressed buy the presentation and wrapping, if I was to receive this through the post from a friend I would be really chuffed. Having persuaded Michelle not to eat the love hearts before I did a few pictures for the review, we moved on to opening the tin and looking at the cake itself.


Again I was impressed at the quality of the icing and personalisation, the cake had travelled fine in its box and personal cake tin.

Once we took the cake out we thought it was cute and perfect for a couple of people to share with a cuppa.

Then came the important part the taste test, so having made the required brew, we opened the cake! The icing was lovely and soft and when I cut through the cake the sponge was moist and had just the right amount of butter cream.

Finally the part I had been waiting for was upon us – the tasting! Well where to start, so apart from being cute, personalised and well presented the cake tasted amazing. It was a lovely melt in the mouth sponge surrounded in smooth butter cream and soft icing.

I initially thought that I would manage two slices (because I am a pig) but in actual fact one slice was quite rich so I think this cake would easily serve 4 people. Both Michelle and I agreed that it was a beautiful and tasty gift and we would certainly think about sending one to our friends and family. Thank you Bakerdays for giving us the opportunity to review your amazing cake!
