Baker Days – Review and Giveaway

Baker Days are a company that specialise in personalised cakes for all sorts of occasions including birthdays, get well soon cakes, good luck cakes and even bon voyage cakes. All cakes are round and come in 4 different sizes and a variety of flavours. The nice little bonus is that they include candles and balloons.

So when they asked if I’d like to review one of their letter box cakes I was very happy to oblige.

The cake itself arrived in a perfectly sized cake tin and with a packet of balloons packed to one side.


I know how much Little Z likes cakes. Not eating them, mind, just the blowing out the candles part. As soon as he sees a lit candle on a cake he flies into action gathering his audience around him. He will then sing the Happy Birthday son very loudly to himself with great gusto and blow out the candle. There is always a round of applause at the end which everyone must participate in.

So we went with a carrot cake with a personalised message to Little Z. One that read:

“A very happy un-birthday to Little Z”.


He absolutely loved singing and blowing the candle out and we loved polishing off the very very nice carrot cake at lightning speed.

I always compare this type of “gift potential” product to flowers and would recommend it to anyone that would like to send a bit more of a personalised gift that tastes nice. All cakes start at £14.99 and can be delivered the next day if ordered by 2pm.

    1. Oooh I would absolutely love the Christmas Cake with Brussels Sprouts on (Gluten free please) What a fab cake website thanks!

  1. I’d love the Christmas Cakes: Santas Little Helper as it’s my great niece’s first christmas & our first family christmas all together in 14 years so I want to make it special for us all. Olivia-Rae’s cheeky smiling face on a cake would be so cute

  2. It’s my ruby wedding anniversary, so this would be perfect –
    Anniversary Cakes: Ruby Wedding Anniversary – fingers crossed.

  3. hmmm a chocolate or victoria sponge … love the one where its iced to say you’ve eaten the whole cake with a bear on it 😀

  4. I would go for the “Keep Calm and Love One Direction” chocolate chip sponge cake for maximum embarrassment, but I would have no problems eating it!

  5. Wow, so hard! I like the Christmas Cakes: Reindeer Christmas Cakes: Reindeer with Chocolate Chip Sponge Cake made only with Belgian chocolate

  6. I love the desig your own witg tge kids drawing on. I will have to get one when my daughter is big enough to do a drawing xx

  7. Would have to be the it’s all about cake birthday cake, in a large enough size for my husbands 30th birthday party so that I don’t have to worry about baking one myself!

  8. I would love to win a ‘Union Jack Wonderful Grandad’ cake for my Grampy as it is his birthday on 27th December and it often gets brushed over amongst the chaos surrounding Christmas… he has a very sweet tooth so I’m sure he would LOVE this. It would be nice to make him feel special for the day 🙂

  9. After 31 years my mum is retiring from Cub Scouts. She has worked tirelessly and unselfishly for this organisation and I would love to send her the You’re a Star! fruit cake. Following on twitter too as @annapontsian.

  10. Oooooh…..that’s easy. A chocolate chip Marilyn ‘congratulations’ cake for me for winning the giveaway! Yay! Ok, ok, I’d share it with the children. No choice about that!

  11. Difficult to choose from all the wonderful designs – the brussel sprout one would be great to make sure everyone has one at Christmas. I also love the Birthday Girl one for me!

  12. I would choose the love heart cake to remind my husband how much I love him and appreciate all the hours and hard work he puts in being a teacher! (Maybe to remind him that I’m still here as he spends so long marking these days!)

  13. This cakes are just FABULOUS! Bet it tasted so good! As it’s my dad’s 60th at Christmas we have to have 2 cakes, really have to force myself to have 2 pieces of cake 😉 Now the hard part choosing was the fact that he likes stars & motorbikes and they are both on here as cake designs but I think I’d go with the motorbike as stars can be a bit Christmas like.

  14. I love the idea of a ‘Get Well Soon’ Cake – never would have thought of it! My favourite has to be the ‘Nurse Recommends a Slice of Cake Every Three Hours’ one – better than any doctor’s remedy 🙂

  15. I love the Brussel sprouts one, as me and my brother always exchange sprouts on Christmas day, wrapped and everything lol, but I think I would go with the Jingle Bells cake, Its perfect for Christmas and has a beautiful traditional look to it! I think this would make my mum in laws day to get this from us! 🙂
