Blog Birthday with Bakerdays! | A Giveaway

My blog has recently turned one!

It feels really strange celebrating a blog birthday. I've had several blogs before, all of which I couldn't even tell you if they hit 1 year or not - I wasn't as invested in them as I am with elelibee. I never really joined the blogging community nor saw it as a big thing to share.
But here I am! Over 1 year later with this little part of the internet still up and going, still with so much room to thrive and improve.

I've had so many opportunities through elelibee, and done so many things I would never have done if I didn't decide one day to set up a new blog and dedicate a certain amount of my life to it. I got to meet some amazing girls at the #nyLDNmeet, some of which I still talk to every single day, and some of which I met up with once again in Stratford-Upon-Avon. I was given the chance to sample new cocktails at The Milton Club in Manchester courtesy of Thomas Cook airlines at the #divasglamvegas event, which was one of my favourite nights of all time. I also was generously invited along to the Cocktails in the City event at Cloud 23 in Manchester, which is something that I will remember forever and cherish. None of these would have been possible without elelibee. And elelibee probably wouldn't still be going with as much enthusiasm as it is without you guys.

As a thank you from me, and a generous gift from Bakerdays, we are offering you the chance to win a personalised letterbox birthday cake! Because what is a birthday of any sort without cake?

Bakerdays are an online company, sort of like moonpig or funkypigeon, that offer personalised gifts that arrive through the post - but instead of the same old cards and flowers, it's all about the cake! Personalised cakesphoto cakes and cupcakes - handmade, freshly baked and sent straight to your door - seriously, is there anything you could possibly find negative about that?! Well, of course how easy it would be to get over-excited and order one for every day of the week, but let's put that aside. They also do a gluten/wheat free option - so there's cake for everybody!

After a generous offer of sending me one to try out, I immediately accepted. Cake is my one true love after all, and it's not everyday your true love falls through your letterbox.

I was worried that when mine arrived it would be squished and shook up - afterall, a cake falling through the letterbox doesn't sound like something that a cake should do! But I was amazed and pleasantly surprised that, despite the drop from the letterbox, it was still perfectly formed.

Despite being tempted by all of the princess cakes, I decided to be a little bit more grown up and settled with the Hearts Collage design - it's so pretty! I also stuck with plain vanilla sponge cake (other options are chocolate chip and fruit cake).

The taste really did surprise me, it was lovely! So much I had three slices in one sitting (it's a small cake, okay?!) I would have preferred it with jam and buttercream, but obviously with only a letterbox amount of room, that wouldn't be possible - so what they do with the room is amazing. I am also a huge fan of icing, and this icing is so good I had to prevent myself from peeling it all off at once.

So, I know you really want one now right? Because even I do, and I've only just finished mine off... So, to be in a chance of winning one of these amazing letterbox cakes, make sure to enter below! Good Luck!
