Letterbox cakes from Baker Days

30 May

I was really pleased to be asked to review a Letterbox cake from ‘Baker Days’

All our birthdays are from October through to March so when choosing the design of cake I should have, decided I didn’t need a birthday cake but there is always something to celebrate in the family.

Last month son Richard and girlfriend Isobel got engaged to be married, and Isobel has recently been promoted too so I could have chosen cakes for either of these events but I decided on the theme of ‘Celebrating Family’ as I have such a great family.

I uploaded a picture of my Grandchildren Evie and Isaac and requested the words ‘Celebrating Family’ and I was really pleased how the photograph of the children appeared on the cake.

DSC_3532Each cake can be individually created to your own design and arrives in a lovely keep sake tin which can be reused for storage purposes or for you to regift to someone with new contents. I love the tin and its already filled with my jewelery making items.

The tin of cake with candles, party blower, balloons and love hearts arrived in a flat box which can be posted through your letterbox.

DSC_3544Of course we had to light the candles which came in the box with the cake!

I chose chocolate chip cake but there were lots of cakes to choose from including gluten free. I cut the cake into four pieces and here is Evie tucking in to the cake. DSC_3546I managed to save a piece of cake for myself and even one week after its arrival was moist and chocolatey

As the Baker days website says  the letterbox cakes are ‘Cunningly clever little cakes’

If ordered before 2pm the cakes will arrive by post the next day and make a change from sending the usual greetings cards for special events.  Cakes by post is a great idea.

Baker days make other sizes of  personalised cake and cupcakes too.

The cupcakes arrive with their own cake stand and large cakes have the addition of a cake slicer too.

I was sent the cake free of charge but the words are my own.

Our lovely group of cake lovers had a great meeting last night, Thursday 8th May, 2014. We we made very welcome at a lovely coffee shop in Albion Street, Cleckheaton, Love Chocolate with has a selection of lovely chocolate gifts for all occasions.

Our meeting was sponsored too by SelfPackaging an online shop who brings you a range of small design boxes for many occasions.

The boxes are really lovely and so useful too. They arrive flat packed and are easily put together.Many of the boxes have clear lids and very useful carrying handles.

During our evening we broke off eating cake to have fun putting some of the boxes together.

These are some of the lovely cakes we enjoyed during the evening. The theme of the evening was ‘5 a day’ How do you eat yours? and all the cakes had some healthy fruit or vegetables in them to counteract all the sugar etc!!!!

These are some of the boxes we received. Many more different boxes are available on the website http://www.selfpackaging.com

Here are some other photos from our evening.

Thanks to SelfPackaging for the sponsorship, to Love Chocolate for letting use their venue and to all the members and guests who made it a very enjoyable evening again.
