Review - Baker Days Valentine's Day letter box cake

When I was asked if I would like to review a cake, how could I say no? Baker Days sell a wide variety of cakes, big and small, which can be personalised with text and photos. The letter box cake is designed so that it will fit easily through a standard letterbox, something that really appealed to me as I often find myself waiting in for deliveries or trekking out to the sorting office to collect parcels.

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.

Review - Baker Days Valentine's Day letter box cake

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.

Review - Baker Days Valentine's Day letter box cake

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.


  1. I think it is a brilliant and I will definitely be keeping the link for when it comes to birthday and Christmas gift ideas.

    1. I'd definitely recommend the service, it came very quickly and there is an excellent range of designs.
