I love Christmas and I love cake so when I was approached by Baker days if I would like to try one of their letterbox Christmas cakes how could I say no?
This is what Baker days say about their cakes…..
“Letterbox Cakes 3-4 portions
5 inch cakes (12cm x 2.5cm)
Cunningly clever little cakes for one or two of you. This small, perfectly proportioned cake is the baby of our family. It’s the thoughtful gift that will totally delight a loved one. This brilliant cake, as it’s name suggests, can arrive through the post, just like a Birthday card. Cakes by post, it’s the future!”
I chose the Christmas Robins and holly Cake and I must say If I’m honest I wasn’t really expecting much. But when it arrived I was so impressed! It is lovely!
When I opened up the box I was presented with a lovely pale blue round tin, a mini cracker and a little Christmas card 🙂 I think these little details are lovely to receive when you order from a company.
The tin I must say was quite hard to open, but I like to know that it’s not going to open in transit. When I eventually got it open I was greeted with a beautiful cake. The design is just perfect and far better than I imagined!
I had the word ‘Merry Christmas all the best on this special holiday’ but the cakes can be personalised with wording of your choice.
I had a letterbox gift cake priced at £14.99 (a bargain in my honest opinion) but you can also order lots of other different sizes.
My cake was Chocolate Chip Sponge Cake made only with Belgian chocolate (F.Y.I the smell is amazing) but they have lots of other flavours including..
Sponge Cake – £o.oo extra
Fruit Cake – £2.00 extra
Gluten Wheat Free Cake – £3.50 extra
Dairy Free Cakes – £3.50 extra
The cakes last for 2-3 weeks (haha would love to know anyone that would keep it that long) and need to be stored in a cool dry place, but not the fridge and they are not suitable for freezing.
Now the taste challenge! It pained me to cut the cake (I wanted to keep it forever) but I know it had to be done.
IT WAS SO YUMMY! I mean seriously so soft and spongy. They taste so fresh and not as if they have travelled miles. The balance of sponge and icing is perfect. Some cakes can have too much of one and not the other, but not this cake. The icing tastes like icing but has the consistency of marshmallow. I had no complaints from the family, take a look for yourself……
And now the exciting bit. Bakerdays have kindly offered another cake for you to win 🙂 You can choose a Christmas cake of your choice. If you would like to win one, then enter the rafflecopter below, good luck!
