The Perfect Gift For Father's Day* (Review & Giveaway)

Dino's Beauty Diary - The Perfect Gift for Fathers Day* (Review and Giveaway)

Summer has fast come upon us, and it's crazy to think that we're halfway through 2015 already. Now that we're in June, it's time for us all to start thinking about what we can get for that man in our lives; our dads. My dad is easily one of the most important men in my life, and I've always been a bit of a daddy's girl; so I knew I'd have to get him something extra special and cute.

So when Baker Days (Twitter) got in touch and asked me if I would like to review one of their fathers day cakes, I knew it would be a fantastic idea. Afterall, I've inherited my dad's sweet tooth and I knew he would love anything sweet. In fact, whenever I do any baking, he's always the first to try my cakes, so I knew the Vanilla Sponge Cake* would be perfect.

One of my favourite memories of my childhood is my father taking me to see the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy at the cinema. We had already watched the original films at home, and me being young, couldn't understand who the characters in the prequels were. I remember I kept asking 'where's Luke or Leia? Han Solo?', and my dad trying to explain it to me before telling me that one day we'd watch the films in chronological order. Good times. So when I saw the Darth Vader 'I am your Father!' cake, it gave me a little smile. I knew it would be the perfect cake for him as a nod to the films he got me into when I was younger.

The cake arrived remarkably fast - after talking with Baker Days on the 4th June, the cake arrived on the 6th! Unfortunately we have a duster thing on the inside of our letterbox, so the convenient box size couldn't fit through our door. However, it comes in a nice, sleek, compact box which I think would have no problem fitting through a normal letterbox. Inside the box is the tin containing the cake, and I also received a cute card, some balloons and some candles!

On opening, it comes in a gorgeous blue cake tin which is honestly so cute, and can be reused. The cake itself is packaged again inside the tin, and once you take it out you're hit with the full scent of dreamy, mouthwatering cake. Honestly, I can't describe to you how amazing the cake smells without being reminded and practically drooling again. It was so difficult to take the photos without licking my lips and devouring it in one go.

The cake itself is a cute size of 5 inches, and is big enough to give 4 decent sized portions. As I've mentioned, I chose the Vanilla Sponge for my dad - however, there are other options on the site such as chocolate, fruit cake, dairy free and even gluten free. Yes you heard it - gluten free cakes! Perfect for me!

My dad absolutely adored this cake, and I loved how much of a smile it put on his face. The icing was still lovely and soft, and hadn't hardened like you would think. He said that the cake was lovely and moist, and hadn't dried out at all.

Overall, I can't fault the letterbox cake or Baker Days at all. The cake was absolutely perfect, arrived very quickly and my dad loved it. Baker Days were also so friendly and co-operative, and it was an absolute delight to be able to work with them. In addition to fathers day cakes, they also do a variety of other options such as Personalised Birthday Cakes, and even Personalised Cupcakes! (My birthday is actually coming up towards the end of this month, hint hint Liam!).

And if that wasn't enough to convince you, Baker Days were also generous enough to allow me to run a giveaway for a chance for you guys to win a personalised cake! The giveaway will be running for a week from today, and is open to residents in the UK only. I will contact the winner via twitter after the giveaway has ended. Have fun and good luck!
