I have been in need of cheering up recently, so when I got an email offering free cake, it was manna from, well, Baker Days. How could a girl refuse?
Baker Days delivers a wide variety of personalised cakes both large and small, for every kind of occasions, including their novel letterbox cakes that - you guessed it - will fit through a letter box! No more waiting in for couriers or traipsing up to the parcel office to collect.
Still I was wondering how you could actually post a cake...
Then two days later I heard a loud thump on the mat.
It stayed in the tin until early afternoon, and then the need to do some work seemed like an ideal opportunity for a nibble. Especially as I was sure that the cake would not last long once the kids got home.
And the all-important taste test? Well it's very sweet and obviously not home-made. But it put a big smile on my face, and on the faces of my two daughters. And it was all gone before tea-time!
I do think it's a lovely idea, especially for when you want to send a special message or treat to someone, and a phone call is not enough. I've sent wine, chocolates, and flowers, but never cake. I think that's about to change!
