Review: bakerdays’ Letterbox Cakes

Last week, bakerdays got in touch with me to review one of their special letterbox cakes, and I absolutely snapped up the opportunity (who wouldn’t for cake?)

It was my sister’s 25th birthday on the 8th December so I wanted to give her something a little bit special. bakerdays letterbox cakes seemed like the perfect thing.


The Packaging

I was a bit worried about what the drop through the letterbox would do to the cake, but it was all packaged so well I needn’t have worried.

The cake came in a box. When you open the box there’s the cake in a small tin. What I wasn’t expecting was the small bag of party balloons, party poppers and a couple of candles, which was a lovely touch for a birthday. It even told you who packaged the cake.

With the cakes, there’s no worry that the person won’t be in to receive their package. It’s standard letterbox sized!


The Cake

I ordered a vanilla cake which you could smell as soon as you opened the tin. For such a small cake, it had a lot of smell! I knew that the cake wouldn’t come with any cream or jam, so thought it might be a bit dry. I was so wrong.

The cake was perfectly light and moist, just what you want from a vanilla sponge.



I did think, at £14.99, that the bakerdays letterbox cakes were quite pricey as they’d probably only feed 4 people. Considering my standard birthday present budget is £20-25, that’s a significant amount of the budget gone.

I’d definitely pay that price for a ‘special’ birthday: an 18th, a 21st, a 50th, etc. You can get all sorts of designs, and can choose your own wording and even add photos to make your cake much more personalised.

bakerdays letterbox cakes are absolutely scrumptious and will make a great impression on a birthday.
