Cake in the post - a review and competition

Unique and fun - cake in the post

The idea of being sent cake in the post appeals to me. Cake. In the post. Yum - though I have to say I was sceptical at first about how well a cake could travel in the post and what it would taste like. When asked if I wanted to have a cake sent to me I couldn't say no but I fully anticipated having to answer the door to the postman who couldn't fit it through the letterbox. I was wrong to be worried as I came home the day after I had ordered it to find a parcel waiting for me.

Giving cake  in the post as a gift is a novel idea. We all know you can send flowers for a special occasion and when it comes gift ideas to send flowers tends to be the main idea in this house but now, thanks to BakerDays, we have another gift idea - the letterbox cake.

You can choose from hundreds of designs for your cake and you can personalise the cakes with your own text and photographs. The cake is then made to your order and send to the address of the recipient.

All you need a your credit or debit card to pay and the ability to choose one of the designs from the hundreds available and the flavour of the cake that you want. It really is that simple.

I chose an Easter themed cake with it being Good Friday tomorrow, and the colour on the cake were so pretty. So bright and vibrant.

Just opening the box the cake was posted in was a joy, the smell of the vanilla was delicious and I couldn't wait to get tucked into the cake (but I had to wait as I had to show my husband first).

The Letterbox Gift Cake costs £14.99 which serves 3-4 people. For us it served four and our neighbours loved the bits they got (you have to share cake in this street unfortunately). The size of the cake is 5 inches or 12cm wide and 2.5 cm deep. I chose the vanilla sponge although there are other options available including a gluten free  and dairy free options.

The cake was so fresh and moist and tasted wonderful. For something that was sent through the post it was amazing! I know I couldn't bake anything as good as this.

There are other sizes of cake you can buy up to a large cake, with free helium balloon, costing £56.99 which serves a whopping 40-55 people.

So if you have a birthday coming up and want something unique to send why not browse their birthday cake options or maybe you want to go down the cupcake route?

Overall I would definately recommend this as a gift idea for anyone (or of course as a treat to yourself). There are so many options available that you will never struggle to find something that is suitable for the occasion that you want it.
