Who's noticing the theme with today's posts? Following on from my custom chocolate post I'm sharing some festive cake mail. The idea of cake being sent in the post is pretty incredible right? It tastes it too AND arrives intact. Baker Days specialise in personalised cakes for all occasions, with the largest selection in the UK. Not only do they offer your standard sized cakes, birthday cakes but also cupcakes and the almighty Letterbox Cake.
Letterbox Cakes £14.99 are 5 inch cakes serving 3-4 portions with five cake flavours to decide on. In the past I've tried their Chocolate Chip Sponge which is made with only belgian chocolate. This time around I've had the delightfully light Plain Sponge (Madeira) and boy is it delicious. There's also Fruit Cake, Gluten Wheat Free Cake and Dairy Free Cake. The plain sponge was full of flavour & moist while the icing remained thin, it was as equally moist with the design sharp. I decided on the Christmas Robins and Holly, featuring two robins perched on a holly wreath with a seasonal greeting etched. I can't resist items featuring Robins at Christmas - my dearly missed Grandma always said she'd come back as a Robin and you know what...come Christmas morning a little Robin comes to sit by our back door. To accompany the Christmas designs Baker Days are including a festive card and little cracker. They've also changed up the tin design, with the yellow stripes retiring for a mix of pastel shaded stripes. How can a cake stay intact while travelling with Royal Mail? Each tin fits the cake on a cake board snug, there's no room for movement. To remove your cake they've added a little paper strip which enables you to lift without ruining your beautifully designed cake which has been wrapped in plastic. I think Letterbox cakes are a great idea for those of us who have family all over the country who won't be home for Christmas.
