A sweet treat from Bakers Days

A sweet treat from Baker Days

Dear mummy, we love cake! So imagine our delight when the postman delivered a cake through the letterbox! A heavy clunk on the front door mat. It nearly scared the life out of us. We ran to the door and saw a very thin white cardboard box on the floor. Intrigued we both scramble to pick it up…not really knowing what it was.

Bakers Day Letterbox CakeInside is a cute little round tin. We’ve been expecting a cake to be delivered from Baker Days to review….but nothing like this!! Who posts a cake through the letterbox?!? Genius.

Bakers Day Letterbox Cake 1Eagerly we open the tin and see this beautiful Valentines Day cake, vivid colours underneath a clear plastic bakers wrap, keeping it fresh.

The tin protects the cake and lets it breath with little ventilation holes in it. We couldn’t imagine the cake breaking as the tin is a perfect fit. So perfect in fact that the cake is very snug inside and there’s not much movement.

A piece of paper helps you pull the cake out of the tin but unfortunately my mummy (in her eagerness to get to the cake) tears the flimsy paper strip.

Oh dear, we’re going to have to find another way to get this out, luckily for us it’s easily extracted from the cake tin as the cake sits on a cardboard base and we gently tip the cake upside down and it falls out.

Bakers Day Letterbox Cake 2We open it up to get a good look at it before devouring it.

It’s a pretty sponge cake, no jam to my mummy’s disappointment 😦 but the vanilla sponge and soft icing is amazing.

It really melts in your mouth and the sponge is super fresh and springy.

The pattern and colour on the cake looks like it’s been digitally printed onto the icing and covers the cake fully.

Bakers Day Letterbox Cake 4As Valentine’s Day is coming up we enjoy the moment and share with Daddy too! My mummy cuts into the cake and we all have a slice each. I would say there’s enough to feed 4 people a slice. Bakers Days have also supplied two white cake candles and a small packet of balloons and some fun party blowers.

There’s a little message card and information leaflet too. It’s such a good idea to have a cake you can mail to people!

We’ve never seen anything like it and on Bakers Day website there are all different types of designs, sizes and occasions to choose from. Bakers Days also produce larger cakes for delivery too.

At £14.99 for a letterbox cake (12cm x 2.5cm) which can be personalised it’s a real sweet treat. If you order before 2pm you can get next day delivery. They also deliver at no cost within seven days and offer a bespoke design service too, so you can customise your cake with a design, text and even your photo!

Bakers Day Letterbox Cake 5The cake is good to eat for 14 days after delivery so it doesn’t need to be eaten straight away…. Fat chance in this household! I really enjoyed the cake as the photos show and can’t wait to order my next one. Thanks Bakers Days for sending me one to review it tasted lovely.

Our Angel Delight Tea Party

Our Angel Delight Tea Party

This is our competition entry for #AngelDelightMoments Linky Challenge for BritMums and Angel Delight. We hope you enjoy reading and watching our little video 🙂

Dear mummy, it’s not everyday you get really excited about something. Today is the day my little package turned up in the post. A small pink box with my name on it! Wowee mummy, a parcel for little ol’ me! We’re going to be trying out the new flavour of Angel Delight…and this is why you are so excited. It’s not the Strawberry or the Chocolate or the Banana…or even the Butterscotch flavour…..it’s BUBBLEGUM! Weird? You may think so and this is why we are testing it out.

#AngelDelightMoments 1So what is Angel Delight? It’s a quick instant dessert, you add the flavoured powder to fresh milk, leave it to set and Voilà! It only uses natural colourings and is suitable for vegetarians as well. Families around the country have been enjoying Angel Delight since 1967 (That’s before you were born mummy! A long, long time ago…when the dinosaurs existed!) I can’t imagine what the cavemen would have used to whip up their Angel Delight? A T-Rex bone? You inform me that actually it wasn’t THAT long ago. Opps.

Anyway, as I’m only a baby, we enlist the help of my friend Jeremy to help mix and prepare the Angel Delight. But we find he’s as much use as a chocolate teapot as he’s a stuffed animal (Shhhh don’t tell him I said that, as he’ll get upset) So Jeremy will hold the Angel Delight and model the product placement instead.

Mummy tells all my other toys that there will be a tea party after we make the Angel Delight, so I grab all my cups and saucers and get ready. Mummy makes the Angel Delight while I look on, pouring in 300ml of milk into a large glass bowl and hand whisking it. She doesn’t spend long whisking the mixture until it become light and fluffy. The magic dust (AKA the bubblegum Angel Delight powder) fills the room with a lovely smell which reminds me of the fairground. It’s a sweet smell and reminds my mummy of when her Grandma used to make Angel Delight for her….back in the day!

#AngelDelightMoments 2My mummy’s favourite flavour is Strawberry, she’s not too sure of the bubblegum flavour…however my Daddy loves it! Leaning over and swiping a finger in the bowl and smacking his lips. YUMMY! I’m still not impressed at my mummy and daddy mucking around, and stomp impatiently.

Surely it’s time to have some now??? Mummy pours the fluffy mixture into a Sundae Glass and a Banana Boat and pops it into the fridge to set. It doesn’t take long, within 5-10 minutes its set. I don’t think Jeremy and I can wait, so we lick the bowl when mummy’s not looking.

We set up our tea party in the front room and I invite my toys over to play. We decorate the Angel Delight puddings with sweets….I think I’m in heaven, and so does Daddy….I swear those Haribo adverts were based on him! He has the biggest sweet tooth in the world. Tah Dah! It’s finished. We all dig in and enjoy the Bubblegum awesomeness that is Angel Delight.

Look out in Tesco’s stores for this new bubblegum flavour and treat your family to it today 🙂 Visit Angel Delight on Facebook

Here’s our little video…we hope you like it 🙂
