Mother's Day treats with Baker Days*

26.2.15








Baker Days is a company that provides personalised cakes for any occasion you could imagine, so when they asked me if I'd like to review some I jumped at the chance. With Mothers Day coming up they have some adorable designs that can be tailored to make it even more special for your loved one. 

I was lucky enough to receive their 'Letterbox Cake' which is the most adorable little cake that (unsurprisingly) fits through your letter box. The design I chose was the 'Mother's Day Birdies' - I just thought it was too cute! The cake arrives in a gorgeous little vintage tin with holes to allow the cake to breathe. My cake flavour was vanilla and you could smell it the minute you opened the box - so yummy! After popping the cake out my flatmate and I treated ourselves to a slice with a cup of tea. Due to it being so miniature there's only one layer of sponge, but you still get jam below the icing, and cream on the bottom - something I was glad about as I hate cake that's too dry! The cake itself was gorgeous. The vanilla flavour was there but it was quite subtle and thankfully not overpowering, and the sponge was surprisingly fresh considering it had been in the post! My only (teensy) issue was with the icing - I'm just not a big fan of fondant icing as I don't like the consistency. But that's personal preference and for the record, my flatmate absolutely loved it. 

I think the Letterbox Cake is a brilliant idea if, like me, you live away from home and want to surprise your Mumma with a little treat in the post. And the fact that you can personalise it makes it that little bit more special. Check them, and the amazing range of cakes they do, out here. And they even do cupcakes if that's more your cup of tea!
