letterbox cakes through the post explained

bakerdays - the home of the letterbox cakeThe Letterbox Cake

what is a letterbox cake?
Quite simply, a Letterbox Cake is a cake that fits though a letterbox.
More specifically, it measures 5" in diameter (12cm diameter x 2.5cm high). The Letterbox cake has been specifically designed this way to fit through a standard size letterbox, allowing us to send these unique gift cakes by post!

that sounds interesting! how does it work?
When you buy one of our Letterbox cakes, we package it in a way to ensure that it survives the drop from the letterbox to the floor, while remaining in perfect condition.


Your cake is securely packaged in a protective cake tin, within our bespoke bakerdays box. Sending cakes by post is a new and innovative creation, only available from bakerdays.

and why would i need one?
The great thing about the Letterbox cake is the surprise. When you opt for free delivery, the cake is sent by Royal Mail First Class post. As it doesn't require a signature, your postman can simply slip it through the letterbox with the rest of your mail.
What a fantastic surprise for your recipient, as they will have no idea you have sent them a special personalised cake by post!


Our personalisation options are endless. You can choose from thousands of ready-made cake designs, or make your own with one of our photo cake designs. You can also add a special message to any of our Letterbox Cakes, so that it's 100% personal to the recipient.
