Personalised Cake from Baker Days

Last week I was picked as a one of the lucky winners to receive a personalised cake from Baker Days. Wins like this always put a smile on my face… free cake… yummm.

I could pick any design I wanted… and there is a lot to choose from, believe me. As Mark is poorly and off sick at this moment I went for a Get Well Cake, thinking it might cheer him up a little. So I ordered our cake and waited for it to arrive. To be honest with you I wasn’t expecting much… for some reason I have never had a good opinion about personalised cakes in general… I believe in most cases they are made for the looks not the taste… Baker Days proved me wrong! The cake we received was like nothing I was expecting.

It arrived in flat box, which as I later find out is called a letterbox cake... what a great idea!  I also noticed that the box comes without any trademarks or advertising  which is very good if you want it to be a surprise, no more discretely standing by the front door to make sure your the first to get the mail.

This is what you get inside your cardboard box...  and this was a totally unexpected surprise as the cakes we have had dealings with in the past usually come in a thin plastic see-through, unattractive looking box... here not only you get a cake you also get  a card to go with it and some loveheart sweets how lovely.

The Baker Days cake arrived in a lovely metal tin, which will stay with you long after the cake is gone

The cake itself was just as advertised... perfect

And here is where the biggest surprise came...  We were expecting just a sponge cake but instead once we cut it, we discovered a lovely chocolate cake, which tasted divine! Something you could bake at home...  you can almost taste the love which was put into making it.

Cake didn’t last long... but it was the best - not home baked - cake we ever had

Thank you Baker Days.

In just under 2 months Mark’s Gran will celebrate her 99 birthday, so now we know where to get a cake for this occasion!

  1. I have not eaten anything today – and now I read about a cake. I would eat all including the box, it looks great. I hope Mark’s Granny will have a wonderful Birthday and she enjoys the cake!

I love all comments :-)
