Bakerdays Christmas Cake Review And Giveaway Ends 22/10

I have always thought of cake as being one of my five a day, so when bakerdays got in touch to ask me if I would like to review one of their Christmas cakes, of course, I said yes.

bakerdays is a company that delivers celebration and gift cakes all over the UK. From birthdays to anniversaries, Easter to Halloween, the cakes are suitable for any occasion. If you are looking for gluten and wheat free cakes or dairy free cakes they make these too so that is good to know if you have someone who has an allergy or intolerance.

The cake they sent me was a letterbox Christmas cake. Now letterbox cakes are a genius idea, not home to receive one? It doesn't matter as they fit through the letterbox. See what I mean about genius!




So I looked on the website and went through the designs to order my cake. Now some people are traditionalists and love a good fruitcake for Christmas, whilst others prefer a traditional sponge cake, a lemon cake or even a chocolate cake under their Christmas icing. The good thing about ordering your cake from bakerdays is that you can choose a variety of different sponges and you don't have to order a fruitcake for your Christmas cake. 

The choices of designs are wide, from fun cartoon characters to romantic designs, and traditional Christmas scenes, there is a design for most people. I picked a design I thought my son would like as he loves dogs, a cake called 'dachshund through the snow'. 

A few days later the cake came through the letterbox and landed on our doormat. With excitement, I opened the box, looking forward to seeing the cake. The cake was delivered in a sturdy little tin and came complete with card and a cracker, what a nice touch! 






The design was true to the photo on the website and I thought it looked really good.





The sponge was light in texture and tasted great. The icing was soft and sweet, exactly as expected. I have to admit I was expecting more buttercream though, as there was a very thin amount on the bottom of the cake. The letterbox cakes are described as serving 3-4 and are priced at £14.99. Personally I think it is a little expensive for what you get but of course, you pay for the convenience, the tin and the design which you can personalise. Overall it is a lovely cake that anyone would appreciate having for Christmas.
