Have you ever wondered want it would be like to have a cake just appear through your letterbox? Thud, right there ready for you to enjoy! I’ve tried it – and it’s a lot of fun!
It is no secret around here that I love cake. My favourite weekend activity is to go out in search of some. Since having Piglet my cake consumption has increased dramatically, mostly because I can use the excuse “the baby needs fed so we need to stop”.
Cake has taken on a whole new level though, you can now get it delivered through your letterbox! bakerdays have developed one that is 5″ diameter, which is perfect for fitting through most letterboxes.
The cake arrived in a brown cardboard box. True to it’s word, it would have fit through my letterbox. I had the fun of that taken away from me as we had another package being delivered that day so the postman had to knock on the door to hand them over – boo!
Inside the box, the cake itself was in a metal tin. In the run up to its arrival I had been wondering how it would be protected in the mail and I hadn’t thought of this! There was a little note telling you how to remove it from the tin, which I thought was a nice touch.
We also received a mini cracker – I assume this is a fun little addition in the run up to Christmas. My nephews were thoroughly enjoying playing with the Christmas crown – this bodes well for Christmas day!
They offer a huge array of designs, anything from birthdays to congratulations to sorry. I spent ages looking at them, and was particularly tickled by the poo emoji cake! Since it is mid November though, I opted to order a Christmas design to get us all starting to feel festive.
You can personalise the cakes, so the obvious choice for me was to get OddHogg add to mine! The design is printed onto the icing. It was bright and clear.
Tempting as it was to sit at home and devour the entire cake myself, I opted to share this one. I roped in my sister and two of my nephews, because no one will ever be as brutally honest as a toddler!
The little guys had zero complaints. They were more than happy to discover their morning snack was a cake. My sister and I agreed that it tasted good, much like any other shop bought cake you can get. There wasn’t too much icing, as is sometimes the issue I have with this type of cake.
The only complaint I have is that it is a single layer. I know this is going to be down to logistics, it would be ridiculous to try and make a 2 layer cake and still have it fit through a letterbox. But I do love the middle of a cake!
We thought it was a fun, something unusual that you certainly don’t see every day. It is a great idea to order for someone for a birthday if they live in a different city, and at £14.99 it doesn’t break the bank.
If you are willing to pay a bit extra you can get next day delivery – perfect for if you’ve
forgotten to do it decided you wanted to order last minute.
The cake is advertised as serving 3-4 but we only ate half of it in one sitting. The cake stays fresh for a few days so it certainly didn’t go to waste! It was quite sweet so a small slice was all we needed at a time.
