If you’re a 90’s kid like me you’ll probably have watched Keenan and Kel.
And if you haven’t Kel has a little phrase that crops up almost every episode. It goes a little something like this:
Who loves Orange Soda?
Kel loves Orange Soda!!!
*It’s very long and dramatic whenever he replies*
And that ladies and gentleman is like me; but with cake!
Just the word cake gets my ears pinned back, and my heart singing with joy!
And i’m excited to tell you that the lovely people at Baker Days have let me try one of their delicious letterbox cakes!
And oh my, they did not disappoint!
Baker Days have a brilliant website, that is completely accessible with screen readers, so I was already in a very happy mood before I even started looking at personalising my cake.
I placed my order of a vanilla sponge cake with Smiling face with heart shaped eyes, and waited not-so-patiently to arrive! I had a confirmation email telling me that my cake had been dispatched and it would be with me very soon.
They were right, it arrived the next morning!
I heard a thud and knew it was my lovely little cake coming to greet me!
I did have to wait until 6PM in the evening before I could open it though, because I wanted to tease Gary 😉
Even though it was addressed to me I really wanted to see his reaction to the cake…
He got excited thinking the cake was for him.
HAHAAH silly man, I am a cake fiend. you’ll be lucky if you get a crumb! 😉
As you can see above the box was dinky and came with complimentary candles and party blower.
Inside was also a leaflet of the service Baker Days provide as well a small blue card with 5 lit candles of varying colours. Inside the card it said “Enjoy your cake from BakerDays” which added a nice touch.
The cake tin itself was compact and pretty, also having little holes on the lid allowing the cake to breathe.
The cake itself came neatly secured in plastic wrapping, and without even unwrapping it,I was already salivating 😉
The cake even had a little tab that said pull upwards gently to release the cake… I am a moron and managed to rip the tab off, so had to turn the cake upside down just to get it out of the tin!
Don’t fear, my little friend was not harmed in any way during this transition!
The cake smelt absolutely delicious, and was presented beautifully! The printed decoration was exactly what I ordered, and gave me a good chuckle, when I revealed the message was to me, from me, and not to him!
The icing covered every inch of the cardboard cake, and there was even tactile markings around the outer layer of the icing.
But Sassy I hear you shouting at your screens what did it taste like?!
Well friends, it was utterly divine! Gary and I even did the cake test to see if it was perfect, because, you know, i’m a cake connoisseur;) and it was!
The sponge was light and fluffy , with that perfect moisture.And the icing was soft and tasty, Gary and I were both exceptionally pleased, because neither of us actually like icing, but this was the perfect amount!
On the bottom of the cake was a thin layer of buttercream which added to the perfection of the cake for me, buttercream is a massive love for me!
Personally, there would be nothing that I would change about the cake!
You may ask, but why is it £14.99? Think of the quality of the service you are receiving as well as it being completely personalised and tailored to you, alongside the packaging and the added extras that are included within the price!
Certainly a lovely gift for someone, as well as it being a little different from the generic gifts!.
Onto the scoring.
I was able to navigate, choose and place my order with ease on the Baker Days website. The explanations of each personalised picture you can choose from was also explained, and this made all the difference to me as a blind person ordering a product online.
Although they are not a venue I visited, communication and punctuality of the Baker Days team was brilliant, I felt I was truly a valued customer. And as I mentioned above, sending me a confirmation email was also a great touch.
Quality of Service: 5/5
I was extremely pleased with the service I received. the cake was delicious, came packaged carefully and the prompt delivery is unbeatable.
If you order your cake before 2PM, it will arrive the next again day!
I would certainly be coming back for more cake in the future!
