- Baker Days Personalised Cakes + GIVEAWAY...

Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? Look no further! Baker Days are an online cake service where you get to create your own design. There are a huge range of Christmas cakes available for you to choose from or alternatively, you can upload your own photograph to make it even more personal - and who doesn't want cake?

I was kindly sent a Letterbox gift cake (5 inch) with the festive Snowflake Bauble design*. As you can see from the images, it arrived in a lovely pastel coloured tin which is great to reuse for bits & bobs. I can confirm that the cake is 'letterbox' size and that the tin safely keeps the cake intact as the postman decided to lob it through the door...

As well as personalising the cake, you also get to choose the flavouring. I opted for chocolate chip (obviously) but also available are: vanilla sponge, fruit cake, gluten wheat free & dairy free. I can't even think of a word that gives this cake justice. It was amazingly moist, had the perfect level of chocolatey-ness and the fondant icing wasn't too thick, unlike previous cakes I've had. To sum up, this cake was incredibly moreish and basically landed from cake heaven.

Lovely added touches were the cute Christmas Card (you also get to determine what's written inside) and the mini cracker. Not only do Baker Days create Christmas cakes, but if you visit their website you will see the vast range of occassions they cover - from Birthdays (which come with a balloon & candles) to Passing Exams!

I'm so pleased I have discovered this service and I definitely know where I'll be heading whenever a cake is required (always). As well as making Letterbox cakes (£14.99), they also bake three other sized party cakes and even do cupcakes! I'm a big fan of how much control Baker Days give you over your cake as personalised gifts really do add an extra special element!

  5. Nooooo, not UK only! LOL! I was almost salivating looking at the yummy cake and I just had to check out their site, unfortunately deliveries are only for mainland UK. Bummer really. I need to check if there's a similar service here in Canada, this is just so cool!
