A Bakerdays cake for our 15th Anniversary! + #Cake #Giveaway

Yesterday was a pretty amazing date in Dave- and Steph-world. We celebrated our 15th anniversary of togetherness. FIFTEEN!! Who'd have thought, a decade and a half ago, that we'd still be such a happy couple after fifteen months, let alone fifteen YEARS? (Of course I have scheduled this post a couple of days in advance so fingers crossed it's still true as it publishes!)

As you read this, we've just started a ten-day holiday catching up with friends and family, some of whom knew us all those years ago and two of whom we hold responsible for getting us together. Thank you Dave and Gilly! We're also marking the occasion by treating ourselves to a hopefully-amazing theatre trip though that won't actually happen until August: The League of Gentlemen are coming to Torquay (of all places)!

In the meantime though, our celebrations started in a smaller way with an adorable Letterbox Cake from Bakerdays. I have blogged about Bakerdays before and think that these cakes are such a brilliant idea. You can enter my giveaway to win a cake for yourself, but first here's my thoughts on our cake.

I chose this personalised Somebunny Loves You design of two cute little rabbits in a floral hot air balloon. The cake arrived thoughtfully packaged to ensure its perfect condition and quite early in the day which was good in this ridiculously hot weather right now. I love the reusable 'Mmm Cake' cake tin. The cake had slid over a little on its board, but was easily nudged back to centre.

Bakerdays offer a variety of recipes including Lemon Drizzle, Chocolate Chip, or gluten wheat free, but I chose the Dairy-Free Sponge. I am told that a completely Vegan cake is in the planning stages so hopefully that recipe will be offered soon. To be honest, if I hadn't known this cake was dairy-free, I wouldn't have guessed from its taste or texture. The sponge is light and moist and the layers of jam under the cake and under the icing gave it a delicious tangy flavour. The icing itself is nicely rich, but not too sweet. Perfect with a good cuppa!
