Double Birthday Celebrations
The last couple of weeks have been super busy with Birthday celebrations, and of course our favourite aspect of any celebration is cake, and tonnes of it!
Recently we were contacted by Bakerdays, a lovely bakery based in Nottinghamshire who wanted to join in with our birthday celebrations and of course I said yes, so I headed over to their website to find the perfect cake designs for two of my favourite people.
The first cake we received a couple of weeks ago for my sisters birthday. I was out on the day we had scheduled for it to arrive and I was so worried that I would miss Mr Postie, so imagine my excitement when it arrived with my post through the letter box!
Bakerdays have come up with a fantastically great gift concept for relatives or friends living further afield, the letterbox cake!
I literally gushed all evening to Chris and was reeling off all our family and friends for who this would make a fab gift of choice. We have done the magazine subscriptions, gift vouchers and bunch of flowers , I mean who hasn't, so finding something so unique and personal is going to make gift giving so much easier in the future. I might even send myself one!
I was luckily enough to spend the day with my sisters and Mum in celebration of Jess’ birthday at a spa and it was there that I gifted her the cake, after lots of oohing and ahhing the cake was opened and before I had the chance to snap any lovely styled photos, Jess had dived teeth first into the cake ;-)

I don't know about you but I love anything personalised, I think it makes a gift that little bit more special, it shows you have made the effort in choosing something specifically for the recipient and it brings out the inner child in everyone, you know, that time when you spent hours looking for your name on the sparkly keyring in those pretty little gift shops on to feel disappointed that your parents didn't give you one of the top 50 names of the year ;-)
Our second delivery arrived last week and was addressed directly to Billy who was celebrating his eight Birthday. I cannot even describe his excitement at receiving snail mail let along a parcel, It was literally the favourite part of his day.
For Billy’s cake Bakerdays personalised it with a picture of his face on his favourite computer game character, they even patiently tried to help me get an appropriate image over to them and after several failed attempts they took an image directly from my website, the customer service and attention to detail is second to none.
I think it is fair to say that Billy was over the moon with his cake!

As if this gift concept couldn't get any better, they even offer a diary free option for you fellow Vegans, and for you non vegans they also offer:
Lovely Lemon Drizzle
Half Chocolate Half Sponge
