Win a letterbox cake from

So early May saw the 1st birthday of the blog. We celebrated on many levels, but there was one thing missing. The same things that was, I’m embarrassed to admit, also missing on Caspian’s and my birthday back in February. Though we were away on holiday so that’s my excuse. But the thing was cake. Birthday cake!

I love making cakes (and eating them too!) but between work and raising a toddler there is not always time. Sometime there’s not even time to go out and buy one. That’s when it’s convenient that a company like now delivers delicious cakes straight to your door.

When we were offered to try one of their personalised letterbox cakes it didn’t takes us long to accept. It was a great way to make up for the missing celebratory cake earlier in the year and so we choose a beautiful birthday cake decorated with flowers and butterflies to match our vintage Royal Albert tea set. We enjoyed it in the garden on a lovely sunny Sunday.

The concept it very straight forward. You go to the website and either design your own cake or choose and customize one of their many prints. The cake is then delivered the next day, if you get your order in before 2 pm. I think it’s a fantastic alternative to flowers or wine if you want to surprise a loved one for their birthday and can’t be there in person. It even comes with lights and balloons.

The cake measures 5″ or 12 if you work in centimeters like me, and so fits through the letterbox, hence the name. It’s a simple sponge cake with a small amount of buttercream and a thick layer of icing. As a Dane I’m use to birthday cakes being full of cream and very light and fluffy with several layers, so I was a tiny bit disappointed in just the sponge, though it was still nice and moist. And my boys absolutely loved it. Normally we try and avoid Caspian having too much sugar, but he was literally stuffing his face and loving it.

The Pramshed


  1. I’d choose one of the age cakes for my nephews 18th birthday – complete with embarrassing photo

  2. I would choose the Thank You cake with the bouquet of flowers on it as it is beautiful.

  3. I would choose the any age Ted balloons cake, as my mum has a special big birthday later this year (85) and you can never be too old for cake, teddy bears or even balloons

  4. I think I’d go for the green “All you need is Love” cake. It’s so hard to choose though! I really love the design you chose; it’s so summery, and the colours came out so vibrant.

  5. I would choose the wonderful dad cake for my little girl to give to her daddy

  6. I would choose a cake to say thank you to my mum for being such a hardworking star and putting on her own charity plant sale for 10 years in a row!

  7. I would choose the Birthday teapot for my aunty as she is always drinking tea!

  8. I would chose a lovely fathers day cake for my boyfriend and make it gluten free so I could share it too 🙂

  9. I love these cakes and I love the design of this one for Caspian -it’s so pretty, it looks lovely against the plate. I recently had a BakerDays cake and the smell when you open the tin is just divine! I am definitely going to enter the competition in hope that I win another. Thanks so much Nadia for linking a second post this week at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

  10. I would get the Good Luck Doodles cake for my daughter who is in the middle of doing her GCSEs

  11. I’d love the birthday cake, my daughters 18 on the 9th, fingers crossed x

  12. I’d choose the Well Done cake hopefully for my daughters driving test but otherwise for getting into University!

    1. I think I saw your review. Yes, they are yummy cakes, but I think it’s the prints that really sets them aside. Thanks for stopping by lovely lady.

  13. I would choose the world’s best son cake as a surprise to send to my son.

  14. I would love to win a world’s best grandad cake for my dad who is so patient and lovely when he makes cakes with my three year old!

    1. I love that your dad bakes with your child, so much fun (if a little messy) to cook with children. Good luck, Rachel.
