Keep Calm One Frazzled Mum Has Cake Review and Giveaway.

Keep Calm One Frazzled Mum Has Cake!

I need to tell you a story. A story about girl we shall call Stacey*. Stacey loves cake, in fact Stacey loved pretty much anything sweet. Chocolate, cakes, haribo. The more sugar the better as far as she was concerned. Nothing was safe from Stacey not even her daughters treats, oh no! Her daughter would often come home to find her mum had scoffed any chocolate, sweets, crisps left lying around on her treat shelf. This made her very sad indeed.

But one thing she didn’t mind her mum eating was cake. Except chocolate, she loved chocolate cake but didn’t like icing, or cream or jam or anything exciting on her cakes at all. She loves plain Victoria sponge and good old chocolate cake with any type of chocolate covering or filling or decorations. But everything else was a complete no no.

Now for a long time Stacey had been coveting these lovely little letterbox cakes she had been seeing bloggers review. Oh, they looked so delicious and all the bloggers seemed to love them. I mean who wouldn’t love a cake to drop through their letterbox? Well, except her daughter, but to be fair her eating habits were a bit odd to say the least!

These little letterbox cakes were made by a company called Baker Days. Baker Days cakes came in all different shapes and sizes but by far the best thing was their letterbox cake Stacey thought. Perfect size for one, because Stacey absolutely does not share cake at all. No trekking up to the post office with a little red card to retrieve the cake. Posted first class in a box right through your letterbox. BEST.POST.EVER!

According to their site it comes securely packaged to ensure the cake reaches you in tip top condition. Oh How Stacey wanted to try one of these. Hints were dropped but never picked up and Stacey remained letterbox cakeless.

But then something amazing happened. Whilst away on a wet and windy caravan holiday to the exotic Bridgend in South Wales Stacey received a tweet.

Would you like to try one of our letterbox cakes?

Would she ever! What a silly question. But she didn’t want to seem too eager. No, no that wouldn’t do at all. Stacey waited around 55 seconds before replying (ok so it was more like 10 minutes but I’m trying to build drama and excitement here) It was safe to say Stacey squealed with excitement. The giddyness cost her an extra £10 in the arcades due to focusing on securing the cake of her dreams and not listening to her daughter sneakily throwing pound coins into the grabber machines! Rookie mistake.

As a nice caring mum, Stacey attempted to search the Baker Days site for a suitable cake that would please both herself and her uber fussy daughter. It wasn’t easy for Stacey there was so much to choose from. Cakes for birthdays, anniversaries, starting school, or even an I’m sorry cake. What to pick, she was so confused. There was even different flavours of cake too. Should she go plain, chocolate, fruit OMG!

With too many choices, Stacey began to think the cake people were just teasing her now with all these different option. Plain, picture and caption. What would she have written on it and would the girl even touch it in the first place. Stacey opted first for a chocolate twirl cake. Thinking the ‘chocolate’ part would fool lil miss fussy pants. Stacey forgot she could now read perfectly well over her shoulder informing her that if it was icing she wouldn’t even think about it!

It was in fact icing. So it was back to the drawing board. Rubbing her hands with glee at thought of not having to share this 5 inch mouthwatering cake with anyone the choice suddenly became a whole lot easier. Except for the personalisation, which you can do you know. With words or a picture choice is yours. Finally Stacey made her choice and all was well in the world.

That was until the cake turned up and blew Stacey’s mind!

The End.

OK, so I am actually Stacey, who would have guessed 😉 and in case you haven’t seen on my twitter or my Instagram I was over the moon with my cake. Not being very imaginative I opted for my cake to say “Keep Calm One Frazzled Mum Has Cake” But what I didn’t expect was for them to actually use the font off my logo on my blog homepage! This excited me more than anything else and for once in my life it actually pained me to cut into a cake!

The annoyance over having to do this however was lost on my first mouthful. I mean I can’t review a cake without eating it can I. No matter how much I want to frame it forever because it’s so damn cute. But try it I did. First one piece to see if I liked it. Then of course another just to make sure I did like it! There was a layer of buttercream on the bottom of the cake which for me gave a little bit of extra moisture to the cake itself. I didn’t even find the icing too sickly sweet either. I really enjoyed it icing and all and I’m so happy there is no sharing involved!

As you can see from the pictures the icing isn’t really too thick and you get a good piece of cake underneath it. Soft and not dry. The cake is delicious so not only does it look good, but it tastes good too. My only issue, if you can even call it that, was that it wasn’t centred on the board right in the middle. But this is just a superficial observation more than anything.

With a few days of choosing my cake it was prepared and posted and as promised securely packaged in a cute little tin inside a little white box. You even get a card, candles, balloons and one of those blowers. Olivia had that immediately! Now to fit through your letterbox you have to remember that this cake has to be small. It is 5 inches and definitely has the novelty factor about it. But for £14.99 you get to surprise someone with a lovely little cake through their (or yours, treat yourself) letterbox for a great alternative to well, pretty much most things that come through the letterbox.

Now to the really good part! Do you want to try a letterbox cake for yourself? Would you like to gift one to a friend or family member? What ever your reasons you need to keep reading and enter my amazing giveaway to win one yourself!

I love that you can basically customise it in any way you can think of! And that makes it brilliantly personal! Fitting through the letterbox just finished the brilliance! I’m glad you enjoyed it!
