Being that I’m not a fan of fruit cake, Christmas cake is something I don’t usually get to enjoy, so I was so happy to try this brilliant Christmas cake from Baker Days as there is a range of cake types to choose from.
The real beauty of this cake is it comes by post, so you don’t have to wait in for delivery, or even worse, have to trail out in this horrible weather to collect it!
The Christmas cake comes in a choice of 51 (yes 51!) different designs ranging from traditional, to jokey, to some of your and your children’s favourite characters. All the designs are available to be personalised and the personalisation is included in the price of the cake!
The cakes come in a range of sizes starting from 5″ going up to a huge 12″ so there will be a size to suit any size family. Prices start from only £14.99 and if you order before 2pm, they guarantee next day delivery.
You can choose from vanilla sponge (which I chose), chocolate chip sponge, fruit cake, gluten/wheat free and dairy free.
There is also a massive range of designs available for just about any occasion you can think of and you can even send them your own design.
My cake arrived on time as promised.
It comes in a sturdy box and inside the box is your cake in it’s own pretty tin that you could easily find a use for once the cake is gone, a gift card and a Christmas cracker, which I thought was a nice touch.
When you open your tin, the cake is wrapped inside of it and it comes with easy instructions to get it out of the tin without breaking it.
The design was perfect, exactly as it was in the picture on the website. I chose this gorgeous design, named Golden Christmas tree because I think it is the perfect mix of traditional and quirky!
Now onto the main part. How did it taste?
It tasted fantastic! The icing was thick enough to be generous but not thick enough to be sickly. It was the perfect amount of sweet. The cake itself was beautifully flavoured and moist and fresh.
I would 100% recommend this company for a special occasion cake, or just as a little family treat!
