I’m a terrible cook. I love the idea of baking somebody something special for their birthday or another special occasion, but I frankly lack the skills!
So when Bakerdays offered to do the hard work for me and send me a cake, how could I refuse? Bakerdays is a bakery in Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire that creates scrummy personalised cakes which fit through the letterbox – perfect for posting as gifts.
The letterbox cake has around 2-3 portions, so if it’s for a bigger party, I’d recommend purchasing one of their larger sizes.
I selected the design I wanted – a festive prosecco image with personalised text – and ordered online. They have so many different options on the site, from Emojis to a printed photograph on the icing, so there’s something for everybody.
Then it was time for the flavour. I went for chocolate, of course, but there are heaps of choices including lemon drizzle and vanilla sponge, as well as gluten and dairy free choices too.
After that, all I had to do was sit back, relax and wait for the post!
The cake comes in a little box, with a tin to keep it fresh, as well as candles, balloons a party horn and a little card.
It worked perfectly as a little Christmas gift to my friend. I was worried that the cake wouldn’t last until I saw her but it is packaged so it stays fresh for up to 14 days upon arrival. And it honestly tasted fresh days after receiving it.
The cake went down very well. It was small but tasted amazing. The letterbox cake has one layer of sponge and buttercream, rather than a sandwich or multiple layers.
I was really impressed. If you’re looking for a tiny, but tasty, treat to send somebody special for Christmas, look no further.
