Like a lot of pregnant women, I am on a mission to eat cake. I know I should be exchanging the calorific sweet stuff for plates full of raw veg, but I can’t help myself. The cake calls me…
So when the lovely people at Baker Days got in touch to ask whether I would like to try out one of their letterbox cakes ahead of Mothers Day I couldn’t resist.

The letterbox cake concept
Baker Days cake designs
Baker Days offer a whole host of cakes for different occasions – 500 in fact. I particularly like some of their humorous designs – this one about a thin person trying to get out has my name all over it right now!
As you might expect, they have a lovely range of designs ready to send out ahead of Mothers Day on Sunday 15 March.
I chose their Mother’s Day Birdies cake as birds, particularly owls, are pretty hot in our household at the moment. Many of the designs can be personalised with names and bespoke messages.
As well as the five inch letterbox-sized cake I received (RRP £14.99), which serves three or four people, Baker Days make four other sizes – from one portion cupcakes to 12 inch cakes that serve up to 55 people. Obviously, the letterbox-size cake is the only one designed to be posted through doors and is a little bit thinner than a ‘normal cake’ to allow for this.
I was a bit dubious about receiving a cake in the post. How on earth would it stay in one piece? However I needn’t have worried.
The cake came well packed in a very cute and reusable tin within a letterbox-sized package. It’s ideal for popping straight through your lucky recipient’s door so you don’t have to worry about them being in.
Each cake comes with a mini party pack including a card and other fun items – I got a mini packet of Love Hearts.
