So a couple of weeks ago Adam and I wanted to go away for the night, but I was super nervous about leaving Edie with my mum along with both boys who needed to be up and dressed for school the following morning. It’s not that she isn’t capable – this woman is probably better at organising the morning run than I am. No, it’s rather that Edith hadn’t been away from me for that length of time and I was worrying that she would be up and down in the night in need of milk, cuddles and teething remedies!
Anyway, she wasn’t. She was an absolute angel and, in true baby fashion, slept the night through. As well as the night after because mum had already put her to bed so she didn’t know I was there.
Naturally I was super relieved and rather determined to do something nice for my mum to say thank you for her efforts in looking after the kids to allow us some much needed couple time. That was when I received a super exciting tweet from Baker Days asking me if I would like to review their cake by delivery, and naturally I said hell yes, after all, it’s cake! Initially I drooled over what would be the perfect cakes for me and then I saw that they offer a fruit cake option… my mum loves a goo fruit cake with some cheese and her cuppa.
Que my eureka moment! This was the perfect thank you for her and the ideal opportunity to offer you guys the chance to do the same for a loved one (or yourself… no judgements up in here!)
I chose my design and cake base (there are vanilla, chocolate, vanilla AND chocolate and fruit sponges… I know – drool inspiring stuff!) even personalising it for my lovely mum and then awaited arrival. Which was the very next morning! Yes, the cakes can be ordered and delivered to your chosen address the following day, perfect if you forgot that special occasion!
I was lucky enough to be given a little sliver of cake and it was the BEST! I am not as much of a fruit cake person as I am a sponge cake but this was truly lovely. The cake was so pretty and then under the beautiful icing was a delectable fruit cake that was packed with fruit, soft and moist with a delicious apricot jam coating! Yum!!
