Greedy by nature I’m always in favour of receiving anything edible (preferably cake) as a gift and I love sending them to others. What could be better than receiving a personalised gift that’s also delicious?!
Below I’ve listed my favourites for sweet treats by post. You’ve probably missed the boat for Valentine’s Day but you never know. Just make a note for any other occasions that are coming up… Birthdays, Graduation, Mother’s Day, Well Done, Good Luck, Bon Voyage, Christmas, New Baby, Easter… the list is endless.
Honeywell Bakes is run by sisters Rebecca and Rosie Honeywell. Is it me or do they sound like characters from an Enid Blyton novel? Anyway their biscuits look divine! They use locally sourced ingredients and buy Fairtrade whenever that’s not possible. Their biscuits are beautifully iced and arrive in very pretty packaging. I don’t know a girl that wouldn’t love these!
Baker Days offer a wealth of personalised cakes but the one I’m talking about is their Letterbox Cake. These cakes are designed to be able to fit through a standard letterbox. Perfect for a surprise present as you don’t need the recipient to wait in and sign for it etc. They arrive safely packaged complete with card (with your own message). Included in the tin are some balloons, a candle and some sweets. So cute! There are literally hundreds of designs to choose from and you can personalise them at no extra charge. Flavour choices include vanilla, chocolate or fruit cake. They also offer gluten/wheat free and dairy free options which is SUPER! Letterbox cakes serve 1-2 people and are around £15. Perfect for students away from home!
Now nobody does biscuits by post better than The Biscuiteers but did you know they also do cakes? I didn’t!
The Biscuiteers biscuit tins are famous. Iced biscuits in beautiful themed collections with tins to match. They are almost too beautiful to eat. Almost. They start at £30 and go up to £43.50. And great news for coeliacs, some collections are now available gluten free!
Now obviously I don’t get paid for blogging but if someone did wish to thank me for spreading the good word in cake or biscuit form, that would be entirely acceptable.
