Our Letterbox Cake from bakerdays

We were delighted to be given the opportunity to try a Letterbox gift cake by bakerdays! And seeing as today is my little boy’s second birthday, as if we need an excuse to celebrate with a tasty cake! 

You can order personalised and unique cakes, boxes of cupcakes and balloons posted directly to your door from bakerdays! I was happy to learn that they offer gluten, wheat free and dairy free cake options also. 

I decided to order a chocolate cake with a dinosaur theme and added a photo of my little boy too. The cake then arrived exactly when requested and was packaged very securely. The packaging was sleek and tasteful, presented in it’s own little tin. I really did love the addition of birthday balloons, candles and a party hooter too, it was a lovely touch. If I was to offer any one suggestion as to how the experience could be improved, it would be to put in slightly more robust balloons as they did pop instantly. Seeing as the balloons were an added little extra that we hadn’t anticipated, I do feel a little coy about suggesting this, but balloons, when you are two years old are quite simply the best thing ever!

I genuinely couldn’t fault the cake. The dinosaur design was fun, bright and colourful, the lettering was clear and the photo I provided printed very well. The cake was very tasty and chocolatey, I was very impressed!

We will definitely order a cake from bakerdays in the future, in fact for my eldest boy's birthday which is quickly approaching. Having a cake with a real picture of one of them on was really exciting for my boys. I can’t wait to try some other flavours and try some other designs too!

Thank you bakerdays!
