Is it even a celebration without cake?
Short answer, no of course it's not!
Sadly I don't live close enough to my brother and parents to enjoy a slice of cake with them on their special occasions, but this year I didn't want them to miss out.
bakerdays is an excellent way to send cake in the post. When I first told my mum I was sending my brother a birthday cake which fits through the letterbox she was blown away. She couldn't work out how this would happen and was convinced to get through the letterbox there would be a compromise on taste. So we sent her an anniversary cake too.
bakerdays is such an easy site to use and there is plenty of options not only in terms of design but also flavour. The cakes are securely packaged inside a protective cake tin, within the letterbox sized box, meaning they survive the fall from box to floor. As the cake doesn't require a signature, the postie can pop it through the letterbox meaning you won't miss your treat AND bakerdays is able to offer free delivery too!
I selected a personalised birthday cake for my brother. If I was ever to be a 33 year old man (which isn't likely) I know for a fact I'd want a cake embellished with an image of my 6 year old self dressed as a pirate, so like any good older, wiser sister that's exactly what I selected. For this cake I went with a lemon drizzle.
For my parents anniversary cake (which I sent a day early! #mybad) I enrolled Megan in a long drawn out story about a textile project whereby she needed a photo of a wedding dress and as both her parents (that's me) and her best friends were from those more modern, quirky, non married families she therefore didn't have any photos to hand. Like any good grandparent Nanny Moo sent her some corkers over! For this cake I decided to opt for the fruit cake as I'm pretty sure that would have been the cake my parents had at their wedding.
The photos don't do the cake justice! (I really need to enrol them on a blog friendly photography course!) I'm very happy to report though that both family members loved their cakes, and no, nobody saved me any!
