Halloween is definitely one of my favourite holidays, and when it was combined with cake by Bakerdays my life was made. I was asked to pick a design and flavour of cake to try out, so I picked this gorgeous Halloween design on a chocolate chip goodness.

Now, the size of this cake is perfect if you want to surprise a loved one with a little treat as you can have it delivered straight to their door and have it posted through the letterbox. Unfortunately. My postman was clearly daydreaming as he didn’t deliver my cake until I had to reschedule the delivery as he did not read the sign ‘fits through letterboxes’ on the box and labelled it as ‘too big’ - I had to wait an extra few days for my chocolate cake!!

Once my cake arrived I was super excited to put it to the test! Will it still be fresh? Will it taste nice? Will the design look good? Read on to find out...

I thought the cake looked very cute, it was the perfect size to be a treat for 4 people, but me being my greedy self I ended up having half the cake the day I received it, haha. It looked very moist and gooey on the inside which is honestly my most favourite thing about this cake! It smelt amazing as soon as I opened the box, the chocolaty smell was so overwhelming that I couldn’t wait to try it out. 

I really enjoyed the cake, it tasted like a chocolate fudge cake you’d get at a posh restaurant. The icing was very sweet and slightly chewy which I also like in a cake, but because I had such a big piece for pudding I found myself not being able to finish it! You can also try the cakes with a bit of custard or any type of sauce you like, but be careful to not overdo it like I had as it might ruin your experience.

These amazing letterbox cakes also come in big sizes for big events such as Christmas parties. I know for a fact that I’ll be ordering one for Christmas Day! Another great thing about them is that they last up to 2 weeks from delivery, so you can order it before Christmas and keep it in your cupboard and it will still stay fresh for the special day.
You can get your own letterbox cake from Bakerdays here, make sure to specify any allergies etc. when you create your order.

Have you tried a letterbox cake before? What’s your favourite type of cake?

Lots of love,

Food, Glorious Food

Hi Guys!
Who doesn't love food? I am such a massive food lover, I will spend ridiculous amount of money just to try new things. Recently I thought I'd make a Milky Way chocolate cake for everyone in my family to try, and it was delicious.
I used two chocolate cake mixes to make the cake and dark chocolate, Milky Way stars and crispy rolls for the decoration.
The stars started to melt which made the cake taste even better!
Me and my boyfriend also ordered some dominos pizza that day. It was delicious!
The next day my mum made the best home made burgers ever. I can't even describe the flavour, it was so magical.
Lots of love,

Soft Cotton
Vanilla Frosting
Snowflake Cookie
Merry Marshmallow
Just like every other girl, I love scented candles. My current favourites are Yankee Candles, as they will burn for many hours and the smell is never-ending as I don't have to light them up for them to give a nice smell. I had to buy a couple of the new festive candles: Snowflake Cookie, and Merry Marshmallow. Snowflake Cookie is by far my favourite as it is very sweet and you can actually smell the biscuit which is amazing! Merry Marshmallow is a fluffy bunny's favourite haha. It smells just like mini vanilla marshmallows. It's fantastic. 
Vanilla Frosting smells very buttery-like cake frosting should, and the hint of vanilla is very strong which fills the room up with lovely fresh-baked cake smell. 
I recently purchased Soft Cotton as I wanted a change form all the heavy and sweet scents. This candle smells like fresh laundry which makes me want to smell it all the time! I might just have to buy about 4 of these and spread them round in my bedroom or even in my wardrobe!

Lots of love,
