How to have your valentine cake and eat it

Posted Friday 8th February 2013   By Ericka Waller

The lovely people at Baker Days got in contact with me and asked me if I would like to review one of their valentine cakes for them. I read “free cake” and agreed immediately.

I got to pick whichever kind of cake I wanted. Sponge, carrot, fruit, gluten free, double chocolate chip. I also got to pick whatever design I wanted. I could even send a photo of myself to have printed on the top. I thought it might be a bit too much, a valentine cake that had a large photo of me with lots of hearts and kisses round it, designed by me.

I settled for one which told me what a hoot I was instead. Then I promptly forget about the whole thing.

Imagine my surprise and delight when a few days later a small parcel got dropped through my door. After giving it a good rattle I ripped open the box to find an exciting yellow box.

Now for my apology. Sorry Baker Days. Sorry readers.I am not proud of the photo I am about to show you. I did warn you I forgot that I actually sent the cake to myself so I could review it.  That of course also meant I forgot people might want to see photos of it.

I only remembered this far in. 

On a good note, I think it demonstrates how tasty it was.

 Would I recommend sending a cake that fits through your letterbox to a loved one? Hell yes. I had a great time sending it to myself. I can only imagine how much better it would be if someone else had sent me a cake with photos of me on it.
