Review: Letter Box Anniversary Cake

It’s our three year anniversary and what does every celebration need… cake!!

However this years cake is a little extra special as I, James took it upon myself to get a personalised cake from bakerdays. It got me a few extra brownie points, a small part of the cake to eat, and a fantastic anniversary.

The way it works is if you head over to the bakerdays website, you can choose from a plethora of designs which are categorised by occasion, and then add your own details. You can include your own text, photos, cake ingredients and the size you would like your cake to be. Plus the option to have the cake gluten free means that everyone can be catered for.

What makes bakerdays that extra bit unique is the letterbox cake option, which is the one I went for. We had the cake delivered through the letter box, safely packaged in a box and tin – which looked pretty good itself!

Of course that meant the cake was pretty small, so if you fancy something larger, then other sizes are available too.

I opted for the classic sponge, but in hindsight would maybe have gone for another option to excite the taste buds a little, but it was all we could hope for in the fact that the sponge was soft and light, and the sponge had a nice taste too.

If we could criticise anything, we would have liked to have seen the text and photo more defined and clear – it makes the photos look slightly blurry but they honestly weren’t. Regardless, it is a literally unique cake, and nothing will ever take that fact away.

We believe the letterbox cake is a fantastic concept, and is fitting for any loved one or friend’s occasion. It certainly won’t be something we’ll forget and would fully recommend it to anyone!

    Awww James you cutie! I am sure that Jess was over the moon when this little surprise dropped through the letterbox! I think this is a really unique anniversary treat, and I'm glad that the cake was tasty too! Shame about the quality of the picture, I agree that it could be a little better! It's great to see that the recipes can be adapted and that gluten free cakes are an option too, I love that it's open to everyone's dietary requirements! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!Abbey 🍕 http://www.abbeylouisarose.co.uk

    Hi, what a wonderful idea for a gift and great that it could fit through the letterbox. I had a similar vegan cake for my birthday as a surprise whilst abroad and loved it.

    Happy anniversary! I've worked with Baker Days before and was really impressed with the whole experience. However, I chose one of their already made up designs – and just added my boyfriend's name onto it so the photo and text wasn't as fuzzy as this but I agree they are quite small. Maybe that's one a lot of text sometimes isn't completely crisp? Their cakes are super yummy – I had the chocolate chip one (:

      Yeah I think you're right, it must be because it's too much text – wish we got the chocolate chip one now!Thank you for reading and commenting☺💓

    So sweet! Such a beautiful idea and I love the idea that it can just pop through your letter box. That's the kind of mail you want delivered (makes a change from bills any way, haha).
