Recently, I turned nineteen; bakerdays sent me a cake in celebration! Because what more could you want than a cake in the post? (I’ve previously worked with them, and you can see that post by clicking here.)
bakerdays is a personalised cake service based in Nottingham; they sell everything from a birthday cake ,cupcakes, and balloons. They also work with bloggers, which, being a blogger myself, appeals to me as a consumer; they have worked with everyone from Cristina at Criddle Me This and Jordanne at Life Of A Glasgow Girl.
Through the post:
The post clattered more loudly than usual; that immediately piqued my curiosity. The package (above, edited to hide my address) landed with a bit of a thump; however, the inside packaging protected the cake from potential harm. (“Please don’t be squished, please don’t be squished” was on rotation inside my head.)
The product itself:
Firstly: personalisation. There’s always an appeal in designing something, isn’t there? Anna at bakerdays designed this for me; I loved seeing it as a surprise. (Enough so that I had to open it two days prior to my birthday. I was ridiculously excited!)
The packaging is minimalistic in approach, which is again a bonus; I liked that they have a lack of plastic wrapping, bubble wrap, etc.
The parcel reminded me of a passage in Roald Dahl’s biography; he was recounting how he was at boarding school, with packages sent to him on a periodic basis. The packaging is reminiscent of this, in the cute tin, with its bright colours, balloons and candles.
If you need a birthday cake, I highly recommend bakerdays; they sell a variety of birthday cakes, as well as cakes for other occasions. And if you want a chance of winning one, be sure to take a look at my Twitter page; there’ll be a giveaway opening today.
This cake was absolutely delicious-and it made a change from my usual bag of plain rice for Lunch on a Saturday morning.
My only feedback is that it could have had a little bit more buttercream under the icing; as it had come through the post, it tasted a little bit dry at times. But it was so good! If you need an emergency cake, or want to give someone a present, this is something for them.
