REVIEW: Baker Days Letterbox Cake

March 19, 2013

Cake is great, isn’t it? It helps us celebrate some fabulous moments in our lives. So when Baker Days offered me the opportunity to review one of their letterbox cakes I of course said yes (who turns down free cake!). Although I suddenly thought I haven’t got any birthdays coming up, however looking at the website I soon realised that their cake selection isn’t just for birthdays.

After looking at the available designs and categories I came across a selection of ‘just because’ cakes and thought what a lovely idea. Why do we associate giving a cake which a special occasion? Why can’t we just give cake because we want to?

I opted for the Just to Say Cakes: Birthday Treat design and personalised with ‘Just Because…’

Within two days my chosen letterbox cake arrived. A simple white box slid through the letterbox and I wondered what it could be. Upon opening I was surprised to see it was in fact my Baker Days letterbox cake.

What’s in the box?

  • Letterbox cake (3/4 portion size)
  • Just for you cake tin
  • Party supplies – balloons, party blowers and candles
  • Gift tag

Although the party supplies were not needed for my just because cake it was an added bonus and I have popped in the drawer to be used for the next birthday bash. The cake itself comes presented in a just for you tin so you could easily order the cake to be delivered to your address and then give the cake in person if you wished. I was a little worried what condition the cake would arrive in as we all know the state some of our mail arrives in. I needed have worried as the combination of the cake tin and outer box protects the cake from the bumps and bashes the postal system throws at it.

I ordered a carrot cake mix cake and upon cutting into the 3/4 portion cake I could feel the softness and moistness of the cake. Although the cake is advertised as a 3/4 portion I did manage to get 6 portions from my cake as the carrot cake was quite rich and I think I bigger slice may have been too much in one sitting. However if I had opted for a sponge I think 3/4 portions would probably be about right.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

I like the idea behind the letterbox cake, the fact you can send cake to whoever and wherever. However I think that by having a round cake you are not utilising the space available in the postage box and could get a larger cake if it were made into a square or rectangle.

The design choices available I feel cater for most tastes and needs, with the option to photo upload too I can see this being a popular option. The carrot cake was moist, fresh and rich tasting making it a yummy treat to enjoy with family and/or friends.
