I was asked to choose a cake from their selection of Valentine Cakes. My husband and I are not particularly slushy romantics, so I chose a design that I thought was quite simple and modern. I opted not to go for a design that had a photograph of me on it, although I can see that might work well for other types of cake like a birthday cake.
The box did fit through the letterbox, although I happened to be on the other side of the door as it arrived so I gave the postman a helping hand! The cake is well protected inside a lovely little presentation tin, and a small packet of love hearts was a nice touch.
The standard cake is sponge, and you can pay a little extra for different flavours of cake. We thought that the cake tasted lovely, and it was beautifully soft. The cake isn't enormous though - we could have easily polished it off between the two of us.
I think that a letter box cake is a brilliant gift to send to someone and let them know that you are thinking of them on a special occasion. These cakes are so well packaged that I think it would be almost impossible for them to arrive damaged. You don't need to worry about inconveniencing the recipient, and so it could be a lovely surprise.
This cake costs £14.99 including delivery. This isn't cheap, although of course it is a lot easier than trying to organise posting your own or purchased cake.
We received the cake to review.
