If you’re anything like me, you can list peoples birthdays quite easily but by the time they roll around, you find yourself completely sidetracked and then remember right at the last minute.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could just pop online and send your loved one a personalised cake with a message of love… annnnd have it fit right through their letterbox without any mess? Well, thanks to Baker Days, now you can and they contacted me recently so that I could try the service for myself. We were sent a cake in exchange for this Baker Days Review. Thoughts, and Opinions as ever, remain my own
The first thing you do is decide on a cake design. I chose a Christmas cake but they have a whole range of cakes for all manner of celebrations including (but not limited to)
- thank you
- new baby
- graduation and exams
- celebrity or even
- photo cakes!
Once you’ve chosen the design you want to send, you can then personalise it with a message and/or photo. You also have the option to send un-personalised if you want to.
Choose the type of cake you want from either vanilla sponge, chocolate chip, fruit cake or even dairy or gluten free and then place your order. It really couldn’t be easier.
The cake then arrives with your recipient packaged in a tin and then in a box. It will stay fresh for at least 2 weeks so it’s fine if nobody is home for a few days and as it goes through the letter box it doesn’t need a signature, which is also handy if it’s a surprise gift. Cakes can be delivered 6 days a week. You can also opt for next day delivery if you order before 2 pm.
When I received my cake, it arrived along with some other packages I was expecting so the postman actually knocked on the door rather than posting it through. I was a bit disappointed with that as I wanted to see if it would survive the drop. So I waited until the postman had gone and put it through the letter box myself. I actually did it twice, just to make sure. The box and contents were undamaged.
Once opened, the cake didn’t last long, it was the perfect amount to share between myself, Liam and Dexter and we ate it straight away.
Dexter enjoyed it so much he started picking the icing off the cake board.
From order to delivery, the communication I received was spot on with the cake arriving exactly as I’d expected. Whilst I wouldn’t normally pay £14.99 for a cake that size, you have to admit, it’s a little bit special and much better than just sending a card!
