With Valentine’s day (and my birthday) just around the corner you may be wondering what to get for the special someone in your life (or me). I have discovered a wonderful edible gift in the form of Baker Days cakes. You will see from the website that they make cakes for just about every occasion imaginable. I was lucky enough to be able to choose a Valentine’s day letter box cake to get my enthusiastic gnashers round so I chose a gluten and wheat free cake, because I have had mixed experiences with gluten-free products recently. You can order cakes with ready made picture and/or a personalised message or you can upload a photo for them to add to the delicious melt-in-the mouth icing. If gluten free doesn’t appeal, they also bake sponge, carrot, fruit, and double chocolate chip cakes too. The letter box cakes come in a parcel small enough to fit through the letter box, so you don’t even have to be in for delivery. I chose this photo to be added to the cake (due to my current ‘singe-but-busy’ status):
It didn’t work out very well translated onto icing, so I would probably advise something on a plainer background. Due to an SD card failure, I lost the original set of pictures that I took, but luckily there was a small slice left to show you:
The cake was delicious, moist and tasty and arrived through my letterbox completely intact. My Dad, the family cake expert agreed with my assessment. It came in a lovely useful tin, well packaged to avoid damage but not over-packaged so to be wasteful.
The size is perfect to share, and a great cake to give if your loved one is watching their weight because it satisfies the taste buds without having so much bulk that you end up gorging and feeling all sicky.
