Baker Days Personalised Letterbox Cake

It was my mommy's 49th birthday yesterday and because it's Ramadan and dinner time is 9.30 pm where we hog our stomachs out for the entire day of fasting, I thought what better than a mini 5 inch cake! It would feel celebratory having a cake around and it wouldn't go waste. I absolutely love how Baker Days let you personalise your cakes, makes letterbox cakes and gives next day delivery.

The letterbox cake arrived just on time for the Birthday and was so cutely packed in a cardboard box, then a tin 'just for you' keepsake box within it which contained the gorgeously printed cake. Believe it or not, the cake was intact and did not melt even in this hot weather. Two thumbs up for that!



I have never seen such brilliant prints on cakes before so I am quite amazed at how they do it so well. I cannot begin to tell you how ecstatic my mum was to see her face printed on the cake. We were quite amused at how much she giggled and kept staring at the picture, narcissistic much? Hah.

It was actually quite funny when none of us were willing to cut her face part from the cake and she had to do it for us. If you know friends or family who don't get excited by the usual cakes, do get them a personalised one next time to keep up the excitement.

The cake itself was a sponge cake I believe and was dark brown in colour. I believe it was a carrot cake with a hint of ginger shot through it. The nicely packed icing on top ensured the cake didn't dry up. I am quite fussy with my cakes but I have to say this was one of the best I have tried till date. Not too sweet, not too dry - just perfect. I sneakily ate some of the icing too although I am meant to eat clean. Whatever! It's Ramadan and a birthday when it's legally allowed to cheat you see.




This 5 inch personalised letter box cake retails for £14.99 and seeing the response we got from the family, I am sure to order in the future. I have my eyes on their personalised cupcakes now.
