>  Food & Drink   >  Gluten Free Cake Through Your Letterbox? A Sweet Surprise for Fathers Day! #Ad

This post is in collaboration with bakerdays.

I’m going to be brutally honest. I hate shopping for presents for people. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve known them, or how well I know them, unless they’ve explicitly told me a thing they want, I’m clueless.

The same is especially true with my dad, because what to get the guy that had everything and is frequently jetting off somewhere.

So, something a little different is called for, ideally something sweet and/or personalised.

That’s where bakerdays come in with the perfect solution – letterbox cakes. You heard me, cakes that actually fit easily and safely through your letterbox.

Coming home from holiday to parcels is always exciting, especially when it’s something like this! We arrived home from our British Isles cruise to find an early gluten free Fathers Day treat had arrived.

Bakerdays have a smorgasbord of designs that can be personalised to suit your dad or father figure best – their Father’s Day designs alone take up 4 pages on their website.

My dad loves nothing more than pottering about in the garden or on his allotment, so this adorable Gardening Bear design was perfect for our gluten free Father’s Day cake!

Gluten and Wheat Free options available!

Cakes from bakerdays come in several flavour options if you’re of the normal cake persuasion, so you can choose from traditional sponge, a rich chocolate chip, lovely lemon drizzle or fabulous fruit. However, the best thing for our household is that bakerdays cakes also have a gluten and wheat free option! A dairy-free option is also available.

The cake comes in a cute tin that I have no doubt my dad will use for bits and bobs in his greenhouse, which kept the cake fresh and safe – considering it’s been at the mercy of the Royal Mail I was surprised that it arrived so intact!

This is my dad, Rob – he likes gardening and cake, so I presented his early Father’s Day treat from BakerDays for his coffee break.

How Did It Taste?

So full disclosure, my dad isn’t gluten free, I’m the only one in the household that is. But I’m stubborn as hell and refuse to miss out on cakes, so generally speaking all sweet treats in the house are Francesca-friendly!

So, you have you have two opinions.

Here’s what the man himself thinks – “It was a lovely surprise and a nice little mouthful to go with my morning coffee….I wouldn’t have known it was gluten free if you hadn’t had told me, bearing in mind how….”gluten free” some of your snacks have tastest! “

My mum had some and also agreed that you wouldn’t guess that it’s gluten free – I’m always curious what they think as let’s face it, your standards change a little bit as you get used to gluten free food textures!

The cake is small (of course it is, it’s come through the post) but perfectly formed. It’s got a nice sponge texture and a layer of jam under the icing to add a yummy bit of moisture. There’s the right amount of icing too – that type you get with printed designs is often way too thick for my taste, but the balance was just right.

    I feel like I’m the same when it comes to shopping for people! It’s hard because you’re worried whether they’ll like something you picked out or not. The Letterbox cakes look pretty cool. Comes with all sorts of goods! Thanks for sharing :)!
