300 Followers Cake Celebration and giveaway!

Friday 8 May 2015

It may not seem like much to some, but reaching the 300 followers milestone is a big deal for me. Back in August when I wrote my first blog post, I genuinely didn't think that anyone would read ALF, so I really do appreciate all your follows and comments! Especially when the same people come back and comment time and time again...it doesn't go unnoticed trust me!

When Baker Days asked me if I'd like to review one of their cakes, I saw this as a great opportunity to celebrate my little milestone and also as a way to say thank you to you lot (more on that later!)

I got a letterbox cake which means you don't have to be in to receive the package, making it such a lovely surprise to come home to! I mean, who wouldn't want cake through their letterbox!? But they also do lots of various sizes and cupcakes too, all of which you can personalise either using their designs or adding your own photos!

I sent my blog banner to them and said what I wanted written on the cake and left them to make it look good and I'm so so impressed with how pretty it looks! They really did make an effort to make it fit in with my blog :) 

I wasn't expecting the cute cake tin, balloon, candles and card either! I would LOVE to receive this for my birthday or any other special event, it's like moonpig but better because you can eat what you're sent! 

I'm not a huge fan of icing usually but this actually tastes amazing! Very fresh and light. I can't believe the cake stayed so perfect despite my housemate saying the postman fired it through the letterbox!

Here I cut a slice for you...

Okay, sadly sharing of food through a screen isn't possible...but what you can do is enter my giveaway* below for a chance to win your very own letterbox cake! :) I'm a big food lover so to me, this is the best way I can say thank you to you all for reading my blog and making my day with your comments!

*UK entries only - sorry!
