Win A Personalised Letterbox Cake From bakerdays Cakes

A while ago I reviewed bakerdays Cakes on the occasion of Ieuan’s 4th birthday and, since that time, the company has gone from strength to strength.  When they asked me if I would like to review one of their personalised letterbox cakes once more, I was only too pleased to do so – particularly since they are offering a 15% discount code for my readers and the chance to win your own bakerdays letterbox cake.

Bakerdays cakes - Father's Day Cake in its tin

If you’re not familiar with bakerdays, they are artisan bakers and creators of a clever range of personalised, quality celebration cakes for almost any occasion you can think of – teachers’ gifts, Father’s Day, birthdays or just to say hello.

bakerdays produce round cakes which come in 4 sizes, from the 3-4 portion letterbox cake up to the large 55 portion party cake. Simple to order, prices start from £14.99 and if you order before 2 pm your cake can be delivered the next day virtually anywhere in the UK. (Cakes ordered over the weekend will be delivered on Tuesday).

Choose your size, flavour and add your special message from the wide range of designs. Best of all, cakes can be personalised using photographs supplied by you.

Bakerdays Cakes - delivery tin and gift card

Your cake will be delivered in a cute airtight tin with a gift card

The letterbox cake which we tried, came neatly packaged in an airtight tin, together with a gift tag. It is a 5-inch cake, big enough for 3-4 modest portions (although I could happily have eaten the lot myself), and the cake we were sent was a traditional sponge cake covered in delicious fondant icing.

You can also choose to have a lemon drizzle, half chocolate half sponge, chocolate chip, gluten and wheat free or dairy free cake.

Bakerdays Cakes - Mat, Caitlin and Ieuan with the Father's Day cake

The design we chose was from the Father’s Day selection – the ‘Love You To The Moon And Back’ cake and we all thought it was pretty cute. You can upload your own photos though to personalise your cake.  Just upload a JPEG and use the editing tool to get your photo exactly as you want it.

bakerdays pride themselves on hand-making their cakes with natural ingredients and no preservatives and you can also order personalised cupcakes and balloons. Have a look at their website to see how easy it is to create a unique cake for your preferred design.

The letterbox size cakes are ideal to let someone special know you are thinking of them and, of course, there are much bigger cakes available if you are throwing a party.

Ours was demolished in no time at all and the traditional sponge was quite dense, just sweet enough and had a lovely buttercream on the bottom. Delicious.

You can try a bakerdays cake for yourself using my discount code MOTHERDISTRACTED15  using my link which will give you 15% off until 30th June.
