A few days before Krystabelle’s fourth birthday, I contacted Bakerdays on Instagram asking how soon could they get a cake delivered to me. I had been so unwell the last couple of weeks that a Birthday Cake had completely slipped my mind. I was asked by the team if I could leave my name and my email address.
As much to my surprise, I received an email from a gentlemen called Adam who is a designer at Bakerdays, letting me know that they are looking for bloggers to review their letterbox cakes for either an upcoming birthday or a special occasion. He advised me to look at their website for a design or if I preferred, he could create something for me if I had an idea in mind. Of course Krystabelle is Disney Princess mad so I had to go for a design which contained a Disney Princess. I got to chose my own filling, the choices were chocolate, Victoria sponge and lemon drizzle. They even had choices between gluten and dairy free.
I opted for lemon drizzle as I always go for the classic Victoria sponge, I wanted to try something different and I’m so glad I did.
If you haven’t heard of Bakerdays before you’re probably wondering what is a letterbox cake? Well, it is the cutest little cake that comes through the post, and right through your letterbox. How amazing is that?
The cake arrived in a brown box, I opened the box to find a lovely small cream cake tin inside with a Thank You card. The letterbox cake measures 5″ in diameter and has 3 – 4 portions. It’s the smallest cake in the Bakerdays family but is perfect for a family of 4. They also make cakes which range is different sizes, 12″ being the largest which has 40-55 portions.
The cake was wrapped and had an easy pull tab to lift it from the tin, the cake was in perfect condition and I absolutely loved the design. It contained all of Krystabelle’s favourite princesses.
I kid you not, this cake is probably the best tasting cake I’ve ever had. I’m not just saying this for the purpose of the review as it truly was. It was light and moist and packed full of flavour. My mouth is currently watering up now thinking about it.
I would highly recommend Bakerdays to anyone wanting a cake for any occasion. Prices start at £14.99.
Thank you so much Bakerdays for letting me review you letterbox cake!
