Letterbox Cake by bakerdays


Those that have read my blog since the fertility days or follow me on social media will know I love cake. Like really, really love cake. When dieting I've been know to skip meals to try and justify a dessert of, you've guessed it, cake! 

So, when I was asked to try the letterbox cake by bakerdays I jumped at the chance! A cake that fits through the letterbox!! Yes, through the letterbox!!!

Small letterbox sized box with the name baker days on it

With JJ's birthday approaching I decided to pick a cake to take along to his party. There was lots of different designs with trains, pirates and cars among the options. As he was having a party with the theme of a well known group of pups, I went for 'red dog photo cake' and added a photograph and personalised message.

For the sponge I went with gluten free as one of JJ's nursery friends has a very strict gluten free diet and it was ideal to get a separate cake. 

When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised! Even though the postman had a problem getting it through our new, very stiff letterbox, the 12cm cake was intact!

Placed and iced on a board and then put into a small tin, it was securely transported in a small cardboard box.

It was well received at JJ's birthday and we took what was left home to enjoy with a cuppa, and we so did enjoy it! The cake was incredibly tasty and through enjoyed by myself and JJ! Daddy didn't get a any!
