Cake Gifts by Post

Send cake letterbox gifts through the post!

As much as we love cake, even we can admit that a whole cake can be too much. It there are only a couple of people in a household or someone lives on their own, it probably is too much. But it’s nice for people to have cake on special occasion. So, what do you do when you want to gift someone cake, but not a whole one? And to make it convenient for your recipient have it sent through the post as well so they don’t have to wait around for a delivery driver all day.

Well, have you heard of a Cake Card? A Cake Card is the ideal solution to this dilemma, as you can send a slice or two of cake inside a card. And as they are letterbox cake gifts they can be sent through the post easily and delivered through the letterbox, so no waiting for the delivery driver! It's a great way to have cake gifts posted to you.
