6 Months of Blogging, celebrating with Baker Days Letterbox cake

Baker Days letterbox cake

I can’t quite believe it but last week marked my blog’s 6 month anniversary. Although What Sass Says was originally born a year ago, I posted only a few times throughout April before leaving it until October. Since then it has pretty much taken over my life. (I’m sure those of you that blog can relate!) 6 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the amazing experiences that I have had and the incredible people I have met, as a result of blogging – someone pass me the tissues!

Just a few days prior to the 6 month mark, a small package arrived through my letter box.  Hearing the thud as it dropped onto the door mat, I was apprehensive about the state of the cake… yes, this little package contained cake! A special delivery from Baker Days couldn’t really have come at a better time. I was worried that it would have completely fallen apart, being dropped from such a height but against all the odds it was in perfect condition. As much as I love cake, I wasn’t really feeling like doing a ‘Joey’ and taking my fork to the carpet…  (That was a ‘Friends’ reference if you didn’t get that…)

Anyway, let me tell you more! 

The clever people at Baker Days have created a cake that can be posted through the letter box – take a look at the nifty little parcel below!

The cake is strapped tightly into a cute metal tin that I can put to great use after eating the cake… I’m thinking hair clips, bobbles, that kind of thing.

I followed the instructions provided and removed the cake from the tin. I then popped on the kettle and lit a candle in celebration!

What a gorgeous idea. I absolutely loved my letter box cake. If I were to receive this from a friend/relative I would be over the moon! I will definitely be keeping it in mind for future gift ideas. Check out the huge range of letterbox cake designs here. There is something for every occasion!

I have actually been posting a little less recently. This is due to looming university deadlines and thousands of words that need to be written/edited! Once I have finished my degree though, in a week’s time, I will be back to writing a little more regularly 🙂

    Aww yay, happy six months!! Those milestones are always super exciting, and I loved that you got to celebrate it with a cake. I never jazzed up my big blogging days like that, and now I really wanted to.

    That Joey reference had me bursting out laughing- I just imagined you doubled-down on the floor with a fork like he was, haha. And this is the sweetest idea for a surprise gift. What a great company!

      Thank you Marien!! Haha, I’m so glad you got it! I was a little worried that people wouldn’t know what I was on about. I love a fellow Friends fan 🙂 x

    I had no idea you had only been ‘properly’ blogging for six months, a huge congratulations on the landmark! I’ve heard quite a bit about Baker Days lately and I still can’t get over how brilliant the Letterbox Cake concept is, you can celebrate times with people even when you can’t be there for whatever reason! Lovely photos, by the way 🙂
