Bakerdays Cake Review

With Abbie's birthday coming up fast, we have been looking at getting her a special personalised cake, we were then contacted by the fab company called BakerDays! They are situated at Sherwood Forest & produce delicious cakes for just about any occasion, from Birthday's to Anniversary's or Thank Yous to Congratulations, all of which can be personalised and designed in your very own way. They are perfect for me as I'm not exactly Delia Smith when it comes to baking, i tend to overcook them or in the case of cookies, burn them..hmm, this way I can still get everything I require but at the hands of experts for that perfect cake!


Packaging
The packaging was perfect, everything was secure and compact, the cake was placed delicately & snugly in a pretty yellow tin with instructions on how to remove the cake from the box without damaging it too, which is such a great touch!


The Design
We chose a pretty black Victorian design with pink roses and a large butterfly on top, the design was exactly how it was on the photo, if not better quality! The cake itself smelt so delicious, if I didn't have to stop to take photo's of it, it would've been gone in 5 seconds!



Upon cutting the cake it was smooth and easy, the thickness of the icing was perfect, it was moist and fluffy, delicate and light, which fortunately for you, means you can eat more than you usually would, there's nothing more annoying than a delicious cake that makes you feel sick  afterwards, which you then end up regretting even eating, with this you can treat yourself but feel great about it too, ha!




We were sent the cute letterbox cake, which is a small celebration cake for just one or two people, or even for a small gathering or party for the little ones. It' also a perfect way to say thank you or as a special gift :) or why not even treat yourself, and don't feel guilty about eating the whole thing either (I had half) :).



In all honesty, this was actually the scrummiest cake I have EVER eaten, everything was just perfect, if it wasn't for the fact I needed ben's opinion on it too, I would've happily eaten the whole thing! Ha. I will definitely be getting any future cakes from here!

So if you're looking for a special cake for a special occasion, I cannot recommend them enough, 5/5 stars easily!
It's as simple as this...


 You can also choose from the following fillings;
Sponge cake
Fruit cake
Choc chip sponge
Gluten & wheat free

Prices start from £14.99 & go up to £69 for an extra large cake which can serve between 40-55 portions! 

BakerDays can also deliver to any address in the UK. You don't need to be near us, we come to you! If you order before 2pm you can opt to receive your order the very next working day. For those who have a bit more time, we also offer free delivery.

Spotty Button Review




I have really started getting into the whole home decor thing since we first got our little home, those final little touches really make it seem like a completely different feel and vibe, you can turn a room into whatever inspires you, from candle holders to art on the walls, something that shouts you'


We recently had the opportunity to review a few items from spotty button, a wonderful website that offers a range of decorating homeware, home accessories and gift ideas, from elegant to extravagant, fun to the funky, quaint to the quirky, stylish to the sassy with a bit of shabby chic thrown in for good measure! 


The first item we received were these gorgeous led rose garland fairy lights, something we have been looking for since we started redoing Abbies room, they are so pretty and elegant, the perfect accessory to lift any room! 


This then brings me to the second item, the beautiful Angelina diamant√© photo frame, a must have accessory if you're looking to add that little sparkle to the room, the edges reflect the light and create a magical feel too, as you can see we decided to drape the rose lights around it and made it the centrepiece of the room!




I have pieced together my 3 other favourite items from the website below, there is such an array of gifts you'll struggle to only pick one thing, but go for it and treat yourself! There's even a special kids section too!

Cosatto Yo! GoLightly Pushchair Review

Today's post is a review of the gorgeous new Cosatto Yo GoLightly Pushchair, we have been looking for a new pushchair for Abbie recently and we actually didn't realise just how many there are out there to choose from! It literally made me a little stressed just browsing online..we then had the opportunity to review this one and we were so excited! I've loved the brand for a while now and love the unique designs they use on their pushchairs plus the simplicity of their design is just what every parent needs!






Not only do they have an extensive collection of pushchairs but also nursery furniture, car seats, highchairs and more! Their designs offer that pop of colour which I find is often missing with the everyday baby products we all use, from bright colours to funky patterns, this brand certainly brightens up the gloomiest of days!




Something extra I just love is that they also give something back, for every piece of wooden furniture they sell, they plant a tree! They work alongside the company Carbon Clear who support small groups of farmers from around the world in planting trees with a variety of uses! 'We take care if the planet! This I'd out first step; looking at what we do as business and his we can change things, it's to get the ball rolling and engage everyone we desk with. We think you'll love it as much as we do"






"The pushchair is suitable from birth & cradles baby in snug comfort with the quirkiest design and plushest fabrics around. Fulfilling pushchair duties and beyond Yo! stroller has a multi-recline function and lie-flat position ideal for newborns. A compact umbrella-fold, this versatile pushchair with a lightweight aluminium chassis is a dream to manoeuvre. 



"The multi recline allows parents to choose the level of lie-back for little ones. With lockable front swivel wheels, Yo! is nifty in tight spots.  Yo! is a modern pushchair for modern parents who love the super spacious storage basket for all baby’s bits and bobs. They dig the lightweight, easy manoeuvrability and handy 2-pedal brake system. That means show-stopping Yo! can be stopped on either side."


Easily adjust the straps to suit baby, with comfy chest pads & headrest to ensure the best comfort
Gorgeous bow detail


Extras...



We tested the pram out on concrete, sand (dry and wet) & grass, all of which passed with flying colours so no worrying getting it stuck anywhere! :). This really is the perfect pushchair all round, we loved the lightness & how easy it is to manoeuvre, anything to make our lives that little bit easier! We've received a lot of compliments both online & off too, mainly on how gorgeous the design is :) There is a matching car seat available too on the Cosatto website!
