With my husband’s 37th birthday coming up, I was keen to find him a cake which would suit my busy lifestyle and be unique in that it was personalised to him. Bakerdays cakes are perfect for this. The letterbox cakes literally fit through your letterbox so no waiting in for a delivery and no traipsing around shops looking for a cake. You order online and it’s with you in a couple of days.
When I first looked on the website, I was overwhelmed with the choice available. There’s a men’s section, women’s section, children’s section and they even had an Easter section as well as other occasions. I headed for the men’s section. My husband is quite fussy and I was clueless of what to get him. That was until I came across the “Wonderful Husband Cake”. It was perfect. I loved the floral style and as a lover of shabby chic it would fit in well with our taste.
There are different sizes and flavour cakes to choose from. The sizes start at the letterbox gift cake (5 inches) and go up to small cake (7 inches), medium cake (9 inches) and large cake (12 inches). For the letterbox cake our choices of flavour were traditional sponge, rich chocolate chip, lovely lemon drizzle cake, gluten wheat free sponge, dairy free sponge and fabulous fruit. I chose the rich chocolate chip for my chocoholic husband.
Now with the design and filling chosen, I had to choose what to personalise the cake with. I actually really liked the design on the website so I just added ‘love Lucy’ to the end and ordered the cake.
I informed the company that I would need to have the cake by my husband’s birthday which was 6 days away. They informed me this wouldn’t be an issue and it actually arrived 4 days early! I was super impressed with the quick turnaround and the quality of the cake that arrived. It was perfectly packaged, and the presentation was impeccable. I can honestly say I was very impressed with what arrived at my house. My only issue was hiding it from my chocolate sniffing husband! I gave that task to my daughter who hid it for me.
When we presented my husband with the cake on his birthday, he was so happy and surprised that we had ordered him such a cool cake.
Not only did the cake look good but it tasted amazing too. My 5-year-old son, who has additional needs, said it was super nice in the whole whole town. Definitely a thumbs up from him. In fact, we all love it, it was so moist inside, even though it was 4 days after receiving the cake that we ate it.
Overall, the letterbox cake is great, it’s good value for money and the service we received was outstanding. The product was pretty good too! I would definitely use Bakerdays in the future and would probably try a bigger cake for one of the children’s birthdays next time.
Prices start from £14.99 to £17.99 (Letterbox Gift Cake / 5″)
