I was recently contacted and asked if I would like to review a Baker Days cake, I instantly said yes, who says no to cake? As you may know I am going to be an Auntie, and so I chose to design my own cake with a picture of Finding Nemo. If you saw my sisters introduction last Tuesday you will know she has named her bump Nemo.
I was super impressed that the image covered the whole of the cake, and wasn’t just in the middle, and put on top like the photo cakes you can get in the supermarket. I received the letterbox cake* which the post man posted through the cat flap, I’m not complaining it meant the cake didn’t have a drop to the floor.
I was seriously impressed with the packaging, inside the box the cake came in a tin, and also came with a couple of balloons, candles, and a whistle. I didn’t expect to find anything other than the cake in the box and definitely didn’t expect a tin. I’m going to keep the tin and fill it with homemade chocolates for my Grandma.
I chose the gluten free sponge so that I could enjoy a slice of the cake, along with everyone else. I was seriously impressed with the sponge. Gluten free cake can often not taste so great but I give this sponge and 8 out of 10, mainly because it doesn’t beat the taste of my gluten free chocolate fudge cake. My mum didn’t rate it highly, but she’s known for hating almost all gluten free cakes, but I guess when you don’t need to eat it then it just doesn’t compare to cake with gluten.
We managed to get 5 slices out of the cake, I will admit that I expected the slices to be really small and not very filling as it’s just one layer but I was good with my slice of cake after dinner.
I’ve had a good browse of the website and really love the personalised birthday cakes which Baker Days offer, I think they’d be perfect to send as a gift to a friend who doesn’t live close by or maybe a relative. I know if I moved away from home then I’d be popping one in the post for my mum. They also do boxes of 12 cupcakes, pretty ideal for if you forget you’re on cake duty, plus no need to leave the comfort of your home!
Would you be tempted to order a cake to have delivered to your home?
