How my littlest turned 5 already is a mystery. One I am not willing to dwell on too much as it makes me realise time is passing way too quickly. Amelia is not one for girly frills and glitter so we knew when it came to her birthday it was going to be more footballs and dinosaurs than princesses and tiaras.
We were asked to review a cake from bakerdays who provide letterbox cakes. A fabulous invention for those who are always out and about so never home for the postman. Also to send to loved ones to show them that you want to celebrate with them but can’t be there!
The cake arrives well packaged and able to fit through the letterbox. Meaning no one needs to be home to sign for it. If you think this may cause damage to the cake you would be wrong. The cake is in on a board in a perfect size tin and packed lightly with polystyrene pellets to stop the cake from moving around. There is a handy little bakerdays tag under the cake to help lift it out of the tin.
Amelia loved that the cake was personalised with her name. Since we have been watching Jurrasic park lately she felt that this cake was especially made just for her. That is the whole point behind these cakes, they are meant for that personal touch.
The cake was a soft sponge and you do have a choice of the kind of cake you want to order. We went for plain vanilla with strawberry jam as it is Amelias favourite. The cake was moist and soft with just the right amount of cream and icing. No sickly mountains of cream frosting and just the right size for Amelia to cut herself too.
We were gifted this cake from bakerdays and were given free reign over uploading our own image or using one of their stock images, ready printed cakes. As Amelia is a huge dinosaur fan we opted for the personalised Dinosaurs World cake which she adored!
