Baker Days, Letterbox Cake.

I was looking for another idea for my Elf on a Shelf. I wanted the girls to receive something in the post, so, when Baker Days contacted me regarding their new Letterbox Cake, I was really excited.

I had a browse through their website ( and could not believe the amount of choice available. There really is something for everyone, and every occasion!


But, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, they even offer a Bespoke Design Service, costing Β£6.50, to design your cake from scratch.

I found the perfect cake for what I wanted; the Christmas Pegs Cake, and then selected my recipe choice.

There are six flavours to choose from, including a Gluten or Dairy Free cake too!


I selected ‘Chocolate,’ which is made with Belgium Chocolate, as i was sure this would be the girls preferred flavour.

When prompted, I uploaded a photo of Elfie (our mischievous Elf) Β from my phone and changed the text to “Hanging out with Santa and Rudolph.”

I confirmed I was happy with the preview and went on to delivery and payment.

Delivery for the Letterbox Cakes is Β£3.99 for 1st Class or, if you order before 2pm, Baker Days can even deliver the very next day, for Β£5.99.

Our Letterbox Cake arrived within a couple of day and I’m sure, you’re as intrigued as I was, to see how it was packaged!

Well, it was extremely clever.



The cake itself was in a lovely little tin, next to a very cute little card and a bag, containing balloons, a party blower and two candles.

The girls were very excited by this and could not wait to open the tin!

Inside, was the cake…..


It was perfect. Just as shown in the photo and fully intact. The girls were thrilled to see Elfie and keen to take a slice of cake to School, in their packed lunch boxes.

The cake cut beautifully. It smelt amazing and looked very moist….


…..and it was!!

The icing was just the right thickness and complimented the Belgium chocolate sponge.

It was a real winner with us all.

I would highly recommend the Letterbox Cake to anyone looking to send a personalised gift in the post. It is an adorable little gift to receive and would certainly put a smile on anyone’s face, as well as having them licking their lips!

The girls thoroughly enjoyed this experience and I wouldn’t hesitate toΒ purchase another cake through Baker Days in the future.
