Nick is in the final year of his training programme to become a certified person who measures things (Physicist). Two weeks ago he handed in his portfolio; an accumulation of work from the past four years of training. He’s worked so hard during his training programme, and I’m understandably incredibly proud of him, especially as he’s managed to write his portfolio in the last four months – three of which with a newborn Busby to contend with! So when Baker Days contacted me and asked whether I’d be interested in reviewing one of their personalised cakes, I knew exactly who I wanted to get a cake for!
Brightside Cake: Proud!
There are hundreds of cakes to choose from on the Baker Days website, not all to my taste, but I came across the Brightside Humour Cakes (above) and found the perfect one.
How it arrived: Lovely
Unfortunately, the postman knocked on the door with the box so I didn’t get to see it pop through the letter box, but it does look like it would fit. The cake comes in a lovely tin, which will be great for keeping biscuits (or crafty bits) in, and had a free packet of Love Hearts in the box.
I ordered the carrot cake as it’s Nick’s favourite type of cake. I also thought it would be a good test of quality, as it’s difficult to get a carrot cake right and so easy for it to be dry. We were pleasantly surprised; the cake was delicious and the sponge incredibly moist. I loved the taste of cinnamon running through it. A traditional carrot cake has a cream cheese frosting, but it was surprisingly tasty with the royal icing.
The Baker Days Letter Box cake costs £14.99 for the basic sponge cake, with a £2.00 supplement for other flavours. I think the Letter Box cake is a wonderful and incredibly tasty alternative to flowers, and with a large selection of cakes to choose from you’re bound to find a design you love!
