Lifestyle: Baker Days Cakes And Giveaway

Baker Days cake

Hi ladies, Style Lingua's birthday is a month ago. I can't believe how fast time has gone by since I left my old blog Lunch Break Adventures behind and rebranded as Style Lingua. I hope you've enjoyed the posts and new layout so far. I'm still learning and working on improving this blog, especially the photography is a major point I'd like to enhance in the next couple of weeks. Anyway, as today marks the first month of Style Lingua I'd like to celebrate with you and of course, where there's a birthday, there's cake involved :) 

To celebrate my first month of Style Lingua and the start into a new bright blogging future, Baker Days kindly sent me one of their letterbox cakes*. From a wide collection of different designs for various occasions, I decided for the Little Birdie cake with the customised message Wishing you all the best for a wonderful future as I found the classy design would best match the purpose of my re-branding.

On Baker Day's website, you can chose the celebration occasion (e.g. birthday, wedding, anniversary) and select from a diverse range of designs or create your own. 

Next, you'll choose the dough. Baker Days offer their cakes with a vanilla sponge or chocolate chip sponge with Belgian chocolate. There's also the option to go for a fruit cake or have it gluten wheat or dairy free. I decided for the vanilla sponge as I love a soft fluffy cake with a hint of sweet vanilla. 

My letterbox cake arrived whilst I've been to London. I worried it wouldn't be fresh anymore upon my arrival back home but thanks to an air tight packaging and a beautiful tin box, the cake tasted as fresh as if it was just made.

The 5inch (12cm x 2.5cm) letter box cake offered around 8 perfectly proportioned slices. The icing was perfectly thin and balanced well the ratio of cake. The icing is something I need to acquire a taste for, as it is fairly new to me and often I find it a bit too sweet. In combination with the vanilla sponge, it worked perfectly and I enjoyed it very much. The sponge had a beautiful golden colour and was wonderfully soft and fluffy. It goes without saying the cake didn't last very long :)
