Baker Days review & GIVEAWAY! Letter Box Cake*

CAKE?! Cake!?
Who mentioned cake?

When I saw an email pop into my box a few weeks ago about receiving a CAKE to review I was sold. I didn't even have to read the email, I knew that I'd be accepting it straight away.

Next was the concept. Andrea at Baker Days had contacted me to say that they wanted to send me a LETTER BOX CAKE. Now obviously I was confused as I'm sure you all are so I went over to their website to do some research. Basically, a letter box cake is a cake that fits through your letter box. It couldn't be any simpler. The main idea behind it is that it would be a nice present to send to someone that doesn't live close (friend, relative etc) so that they receive something more than a card for their occasion. And who doesn't love cake?!

Andrea said that I could send her a photo and she would get that printed onto my cake and get it in the post for me. I used this image of me and my boyfriend. However, when I opened my cake I saw that they had not only added my blog banner, they put XO all around the outside, how sweet is that?! I thought that was the nicest thing as I was just expecting a cake of me and boyfy! 

I'm not sure what kind of sized cake I was expecting but they are very small. I think I read somewhere they are made for 4 (small) portions so I didn't feel bad eating the whole thing to myself over the course of a day or two (hehe). 

I also wondered how on earth a cake could make it through the post and through my front door and still being in one piece! The cakes are put into a cute tin, and then the tin is wrapped. Each parcel also comes with a little bag of balloons, candles and a streamer! I thought that was the sweetest thing ever!

The cake itself was very nice. I'm no food critic so I can't really tell you about the taste etc but I had a vanilla cake with normal icing and it was LUSH. If you know me you'll know I eat sweets. A LOT OF SWEETS. I even had a tooth out recently because of it (oops!!!) so a personalised cake, who was I to turn that down!? 

I had the nicest experience with Baker Days and I would recommend anybody to use their services. You can't go wrong!! And whats more.. Andrea has given me a chance to giveaway 2 cakes!!
