Are you a cake lover? I bet you are! So stop what you are doing now and think. How amazing would a company delivering cakes in your mail box be? More than amazing, actually awesome, right?! That’d be like a dream you may say. And I’d reply that it is not, it does exist and it is called Bakerdays! Let me introduce you to them.
Bakerdays is situated on the edge of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire (where all the magic happens) and what they do is delivering great celebration and gift cakes all over the UK. Bakers and innovators, they like to play with very versatile colors and decorating processes to create beautiful cakes that taste amazing! It was founded by two entrepreneurs who love cakes – eating them and creating the perfect design for every occasion!
Not that you need a specific occasion to eat cake, am I right?! Although, when they got in touch to work together, I suggested that what I could be celebrating on this occasion is friendship! A friendship that is very new in comparison to others I have but that feels very old and that is very important to me. A friend who have been there for me when things were tough and that I know I can always count on. Also a friend who braves the rain with me to get those perfect outfit photos. I think you’ve guessed, I am talking about Ana from Faded Spring!
The choice of cakes you can get is very large. It goes from birthdays, to engagement, new home, new job cakes to football, good luck or Halloween cakes. And many in between. Friendship is not one of them. However, what is also amazing it that if the occasion or design you want is not there, they will create it for you! And that is how Ana and I got to taste a letterbox gift cake dedicated to celebrating our friendship. Delivered next day, I may add and in a round tin box! They also do personalized cupcakes and balloons in case that is of any interest to you!
Ana and I went on a picnic in Kew Garden back in July where we drank some prosecco, ate delicious Italian food, shot outfits and of course, tasted the cake! I am sucker for lemon – and so is Ana – so I chose a lemon drizzle cake! No regret! Love lemon, loved the cake! I am usually not a fan of marzipan but I must admit it complimented the lemon Victoria sponge so well! We did not eat the whole cake in the park but I can tell, it did not last long when I got back home!
I really love the idea of the letterbox gift cake. It is very clever and can make a very good surprise to a loved one! The size is perfect for one or two people so no leftovers in the fridge for ages. However, I have found the cake slightly dry. It is probably because we ate a few days after I received it though. A word of advice, eat it when you receive it!
Had you ever heard of Bakerdays before? Even ever tried them? What did you think? Did you enjoy the experience? How do you find the idea of a letterbox gift cake?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you liked this post!
See you soon,
