For those people that know me, and those that have read any of my diet posts, you will know that I am not the kind of girl that will turn down a cake. So when Baker Days offered to send me a Valentines Day cake to review I jumped at the chance.
Middle man is smooth. Very smooth. He can turn the house upside down, and just when I am at the end of my tether, he will walk up and say "Happy Valentines Day Mummy!" I am not sure where he has got this concept from, but I imagine Disney Junior are to blame.
I therefore decided that I would order a cake for my boys. I always tell them I love them, and at the age they are at the moment they are fine with this rather than being embarrassed. They love cake and I wanted to test out the photo icing of Baker Days.
I was really impressed with the speed in which I received the cake. The packaging was amazing. I had wondered how a cake would be delivered by Royal Mail in one piece but it is possible! The cake came packaged in a lovely "just for you" tin.
The cake is called a letterbox cake as it is small enough to fit through your door and is about 4-5 portions. The cake is secured onto the cake board with butter cream and covered in icing.
Although it had a best before date of 29th January, we weren't going to wait that long, so we quickly got it out of it's tin to have a look and a taste.
The boys loved it - big man's first reaction was "can I eat my face?" The cake was sponge and tasted nice. Other choices such as chocolate or gluten free are available at a slightly higher price. They do cakes for every occasion and their website is well worth a look. If you are looking for something other than flowers, for someone you love this Valentines Day, have a look at the Baker Days site as I can tell you their cake is yummy.

We were given the cake for the purpose of this review, but the opinions here are all my own.
