I have to be honest, I hadn't heard of Baker Days until I was tagged on Twitter along with them. I had a quick peek at their profile and thought itwas a wonderful idea with a lot of potential.
The Tweet I was mentioned in was a nomination to win one of their Letterbox Cakes. There were plenty of nominees so I didn't get too excited. I was more flattered by my lovely friend Hannah, the CupcakeMumma, thinking of me and putting my name forward!
A few days later I had a Tweet to announce I had won a Letterbox Cake!! Free Cake is ALWAYS a winner with me! I emailed off my details to the lovely folk at BakerDays and waited...
True to their word, the next day a white box arrived. Putting it off until the boys were distracted elsewhere, I opened my box.
Here is what was inside. A lovely tin containing yummy cake! A card from BakerDays, two candles, a party blower and some balloons! I thought it was brilliant! The extras made me feel like I had a little party in a box for one. Then I opened the tin...
What a fantastic little cake! I certainly wasn't expecting it to be personalised! Inside the lid is a stay dry packet to keep the cake nice and fresh. I couldn't wait for a quiet moment to taste it.
With the daily dramas that followed I completely forgot about my cake until tea time. We had all finished and there was a dispute over what to have for pudding as there weren't enough cakes for everyone. I remembered my cake and decided to share it with the boys. I cut the first slice and wondered if it would be quite dry..
My verdict: A very lovely idea and one that would cheer anyone up!
Thank you to BakerDays for my lovely treat and a huge thank you to my lovely friend Hannah for nominating me!!
