As you know, a few weeks ago I moved in with K. A few people asked if they could buy us a house warming present but I told them all to hold off for now as at the moment I don’t feel like it’s our house and I’d rather wait until we buy somewhere between us. However, when the lovely people at Baker Days said they wanted to send us out a personalised cake to say congratulations, I was mega chuffed – I do, after all, love da cake.
Although having a personalised cake is obviously awesome, there are two more things I love about Baker Days:
1. The cakes fit through a letterbox so you can send without fretting they might be taken back to the sorting depot if the recipient isn’t home
2. They come in a great little tin and I’m a sucker for a tin.
I have to admit, I was wondering what the cake would taste like after being packaged up and thrown about in the postal system, but all my fears were unfounded and it was absolutely delicious! It was one of those cakes that is so nice that when you feel obliged to offer it to friends/family to share and they say yes, you can’t help but feel a bit of anger towards them for stealing it from under your nose.
You’d be forgiven for thinking the sponge might be a little dry after it’s journey, but it retained a good level of moistness and was really soft too, falling apart in your mouth as you ate it. As my cake was a plain sponge, it had a layer of cream at the bottom of it where it sat on the mounting and that was delicious too – there was not so much that it made the cake sickly and not so little that you felt you’d been stitched up. It really was the perfect proportions and had travelled extremely well.
I managed to get the cake to last 2 days (which I think was a pretty impressive show of willpower from me) and I was genuinely disappointed when it had gone; it was so good! The candles and balloons supplied with the cake have gone into the drawer for use another time and the tin is now home to my selection of flavoured teabags, keeping them nice and fresh.
I can’t recommend Baker Days enough. It’s a fantastic idea to be able to send a cake to someone to mark a special occasion if you can’t be with them, or to just add a little surprise to their day. Knowing how delicious they are too means that you know they’ll be impressed with their gift too!

Our cake – a Template No 09 photo cake – would cost £14.99 and there are additional flavour options plus the choice to have gluten wheat free or dairy free too, for those that have dietary requirements. There’s a few different options to choose from for delivery, from a free 7-day delivery to Next Working Day at £5.99.
I am so impressed with Baker Days and will definitely be using them in the future. It’s a great alternative to sending flowers, especially when personalised!
What do you think of the service Baker Days provide? Would you ever send a cake via post?
