Personalised Cake Review with Baker Days*

It can be really difficult to find the ideal cake for an occasion. Do you buy a generic store cake that you never really like the design of or do you splash out and get one made bespoke for the occasion but that will only last a week tops?

With* you can have the best of both. You're able to have a bespoke picture cake delivered to your door for a great price and it lasts for 14 days. 

This is the cake that I ordered. I got a photo 'letterbox' cake with my blog's logo printed onto the icing. The design completely surpassed my expectations! I would have been happy with just a box picture of it in the middle but they really went the extra mile. They continued the stripped background to cover the whole cake and then used beautiful matching artwork to design the pattern around the cake's base.

'Letterbox' cakes are very small at just 5" but are ideal size really. They make a great gift to surprise someone because they fit through (most) post boxes and because they come in the adorable tin inside the postage box they don't get damaged upon delivery either. They and their 7" party cake come with candles (as seen in top picture) too, which was a lovely surprise and they even add in a lovely card.

The design wasn't at all pixellated either. I was a little concerned, especially with ordering a letterbox size one, that the design quality would be lost, but as you can see from the pictures the colour quality and details weren't diminished at all.
You can send in any picture and it'd look great on it but they also have such a wide variety of designs to choose from too for all possible occasions.

All cakes are default on Sponge Cake flavour, but for a little extra, the cakes are also available in chocolate, fruit, 1/2 chocolate with 1/2 vanilla, and for those with allergies there's Gluten or Wheat free, and for those with allergies or who are vegan, there's even Dairy free! I was really pleased to see this wide range of options and variety. It can be so difficult to find these types of cakes that actually look and taste nice. 
In my slow conversion to being vegan, I'm looking forward to trying the dairy free one next.

Here I've tried the vanilla/sponge flavour and I was amazed at just how yummy it was. The flavour is really fantastic and certainly not dry. Even if you cannot eat it on the first day, they really mean it when they say that it stays fresh for 14 days. The taste quality is not lost at all.
I'm quite a stickler for cake tastes. I love that this one wasn't greasy at all, wasn't too moist or too dry and the icing layer was the ideal thickness. The letterbox one I ordered was too small to have a cream or jam layer inside but it still tasted great.

I'll definitely be ordering a large party cake, which comes with a free cake slicer, for my next party! And I'd love to try their cupcakes! They come with a free, cute 2 tier stand as well.

The Scores:
Flavour: 9/10 - Really yummy and 'more-ish'. A lot better than most store bought cakes and as not too sweet and not too dry either. The icing is just the right thickness too and it's not at all greasy. 
You don't feel too naughty having a slice of this cake!
Design: 8/10 - the printed designs are really great quality. The only thing missing is that you wouldn't be able to have sugar designs such as 3D shapes on the cake and therefore may not suit every occasion such as a wedding.
Uniqueness: 9/10
Would you recommend to a friend?: Yes!

I'll genuinely be telling my friends and family about these cakes and be sending some letterbox cakes for future birthdays and events. Being at uni and with friends and families living further and further apart these days, I can find it hard to see them as often as I'd like and make it to every event. These personalised cakes are a unique and novel way to show them that you care and are thinking about them on their special day.
