Organisationally I’m quite rubbish. I used to be a project manager which forced me to be professionally organised, but at home I was and remain a shambles. This unfortunately means that gift buying is always, always, always done at the very last minute and in a bit of a panic. I was asked to try a Baker Days letterbox cake, which seems like the ideal and personalised solution to my present buying woes.
We were asked to choose a Halloween themed cake which we could personalise with our own words, though you can choose from almost any themed cake imaginable. We liked the spiderweb cake design which we customised with the words “Spooky Creepy Scary Boo!” But you could choose whatever message you wanted. It was really easy to order and was delivered within a few days, though there are various delivery options available depending on how disorganised or organised you are.
Our cake arrived through the letterbox in excellent condition. Tightly packed in a cute keepsake tin and presented in a box with a little packet of party balloons and blowers with a personalised greetings card. Honestly if someone sent me a little personalised cake in the post, cutely presented like this for my birthday or another occasion I’d be delighted, it’s such a lovely looking, thoughtful gift.
We decided to share the cake between us for pudding after Sunday lunch, the cake was enough to cut into four fairly generous pieces or eight smaller bites. The sponge was light and the icing was sweet but not too thick. It was a nice slice of cake. The cake we had was 5 inches in diameter, though larger cakes are available and you can also choose chocolate or fruit cake if you’d prefer. They also make a range of personalised and themed cupcakes which look super-cute.
The letterbox cake starts at £14.99 plus postage and packing, but it includes a greetings card, a keepsake tin and the balloons and blowers. I think it’s a lovely gift to post to someone, especially if you’re always a bit last minute like me. I like that it’s personalised, I like that it’s a little bit of fun, I think it’s a great idea and it’s definitely on my last minute panic present buying list.
Note: I was sent a cake free of charge for review purposes, all images and opinions are my own.
