Good evening all!
I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend!
Anyone looking forward to Christmas? I am really excited this year and now even more so as I was given the chance to write my very first Christmas review!
Some of you will know that recently a company called Baker Days contacted me. They are a personalised, cake specialists based in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire. I was asked to select a letterbox cake (a 5" inch cake so 3-4 slices) from their Christmas range, which I was more than happy to do! A brilliant idea! After all, more often than not we groan when seeing a pile of post by the door.
I was thoroughly excited to find this arrived in good time! They advertise that cakes stay fresh for 14 days and they have 6 different delicious flavours to choose from: vanilla, chocolate, fruit, half-and-half, Gluten free, Dairy free.
So let's first see how my cake arrived...
Upon opening my parcel I found a cute cake tin, leaflet about Baker Days, a Christmas Card and a Christmas Cracker! I thought these lovely little additions really added something positive to the package; adding more sparkle to the Christmas theme!
When I opened the tin I was even happier. The cake was exactly as pictured on their website when I selected it. They had even kindly written my name and wished me a Merry Christmas (not something I had requested)! I was really quite touched by the whole package.
Anyway..... onwards to the tasting!
The cake had a paper tab over it with easy instructions on how to take it out of the tin in one piece. Another nice touch I thought.
Baker Days have literally thought through every tiny detail and made sure that the transition from website to plate is quick, efficient and easy!
The cake was perfectly iced and cutting through it was easy! Not to mention it smelt so delicious!
Of course I had my lovely (but hungry for cake) boyfriend hovering over me so I had to let him try it too!
The cake was a deep, chocolate brown and tasted phenomenal. I can only describe it as eating a moist, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate fudge cake slice of heaven! My boyfriend enjoyed it very much an described it as rich in flavour.
Baker Days have not skimped anywhere in the process. From selecting and speaking with them about which one I would like to review, it arriving in perfect condition by first class post to it then being sliced and sampled.
I would honestly, thoroughly recommend this company if you are thinking of purchasing a personalised cake from someone who is an expert at baking and is honest and reliable. Of course, they do not do just Christmas Cakes and will practically do any theme for any occasion. The sizes, styles and flavours vary too.
Check them out on www.BakerDays.com and see what you think. They also have facebook, instagram, twitter, Google+ and Pinterest pages. Just search their name!
Thank you for reading..... I saved the best bit until last.... so I'm just going to.....erm.......make a cuppa tea....and
