Today's post is about cake, and personally I don't know anyone that doesn't like cake! Being a self confessed junk-food eater, this review is right down my alley. This cake in particular is from Baker Days, which is a company that caters to anybody's cake needs for any occasion such as birthdays, celebrations or even humour cakes! If you're struggling for a gift idea, or are too busy to pop down to the shops to pick up a prezzie, you can simply order a pre-made designed cake or even a custom one, to be sent to your friend's house right through their letterbox.
I was given the opportunity to choose my very own 5" letterbox cake, which was very kind of Baker Days. A letterbox cake is literally a cake that can fit through a letterbox, which I think is pretty nifty. I could have picked a pre-made design from the website, or even sent in a photo of my choice to have on the cake. As I'm not celebrating anything at the moment, I decided to send in my blog illustration. I was pleasantly surprised how much detail they put on the cake of the illustration, I honestly didn't think they would manage to pull it off, but they did! It arrived in mint condition, the cake hadn't been damaged in the slightest while in transit - although I wasn't the nimblest of people when getting the cake out of the box!
It also came in a lovely round tin that I wasn't expecting to receive, I'm definitely going to reuse it for something else! Included in the box was a party horn, balloons and candles, and a sweet 'Enjoy your cake' card from Baker Days!
I didn't know what kind of cake I was going to get, but I was really happy when I received a chocolate one. The cake wasn't dry at all, in fact it was deliciously moist and chocolatey, with butter-cream underneath its spongy goodness! The icing on top was the perfect thickness, and I adore the pressed pattern around the edge.
I shared the cake with my mum and brothers, and it received thumbs up all round! It didn't last more than a day, so if that isn't a good sign, I don't know what is.
