A Mother’s Day Gift With a Difference

Posted By KidGearUK on Saturday, 20 February, 2016 | 6 comments



 

As I walked into my local supermarket yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice the shelves of pale pink, flowery items. Gone are the hearts, roses and champagne bottles of Valentines Day, in are the fluffy teddies, flower shaped candles and boxes of chocs. This can only mean one thing. Mother’s Day will be here soon.

 

I’m sure my mum has had enough of fluffy teddies and boxes of chocs by now. I’m the same, my kids are 6 and 4 so they think mummy would love a fluffy teddy since they’d love it themselves. It’s all very cute and I love their smiley faces as they unwrap my presents but it would be nice not to have another teddy or candle gathering dust.

 

So I was very excited when the personalised celebration cake specialist Baker Days, contacted me about reviewing a Mother’s Day Personalised Letterbox cake. Could it be, finally, a Mother’s Day gift that’s different? A Mother’s Day gift that’s a cake delivered to your door. CAKE THROUGH THE LETTERBOX. Hopefully this makes sense, my fingers have gone all wobbly at the thought.

I wanted to try one of these magical cakes that the postman can bring but, as I can’t eat gluten, this isn’t for me I thought sadly. However, Baker Day’s have thought of that too and they have the option of choosing a wheat and gluten free cake when you order. Coeliac and gluten intolerant mothers can eat cake too.

 

Each cake is 5″ diameter, costs £14.99 and can be personalised with your own message. The cake will stay fresh for 14 days though, if you’re in a hurry, there’s the option for next day delivery if you order before 2pm.

 

Since it’s a Mother’s Day cake, I thought I should get my children to choose it so we looked at the website together and found there’s loads of cake designs to choose from. Not just Mother’s Day either, Baker Day’s have cakes for all celebrations. The kids decided we should try the “one with lots of hearts” and told me what they wanted written on it. They were just as excited as I was!

 

Today, the postman did indeed bring me cake. He didn’t put it through the letterbox, he rang the doorbell and handed it to me. I tried and it will fit through the letterbox so could have been delivered if I was out, it would make a perfect surprise present.

Inside the packaging was a tin containing the cake, some sweets, a card and a leaflet about Baker Day’s. It looked so cute. I opened the tin and there was the cake with lots of hearts that my boys had chosen. The colours were bright and the personalised text was clear. You’d never have known the cake had come through the post, it’s little tin had protected it well.

Next it was time for the taste test. It was just the right size for four portions, a slice each for me, my husband and our two boys. We all cleared our plates. Sometimes gluten free cakes can be dry, crumbly and rather disappointing. This was one of the best I’ve tried.

I was really impressed by the Baker Day’s Letterbox cake and I think it makes a unique Mother’s Day gift. Why not have a look around the Baker Day’s website? Or follow what they’re up to on Facebook or Twitter.

 

I was contacted by Baker Day’s and received a Letterbox cake for free for the purpose of reviewing it. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

      Thanks, I took them all on my phone! Hardest part was keeping the kids from digging into the cake until I had photos of it 😀 It was lovely cake and I love the letterbox cake idea.
