If you get an email asking if you’d like to review cupcakes, you’re going to say yes. So when Caketoppers * emailed me and asked if I’d like to try and review some of their cupcakes, I said yes. Obviously. I love food and I’m certainly not going to turn down an opportunity to test some – especially cakes! Caketoppers specialise is edible photo cake toppers, on cakes and cupcakes for a whole range of occasions, choosing from chocolate sponge, classic sponge of a mixture of both! I was sent one of each to try and here’s what I thought!
Firstly, they arrived really well packaged with plenty of protection from potentially being knocked around during delivery. The cakes were in perfect condition, along with the photo printed on top, which I was allowed to chose and Caketoppers then printed for me! I chose a photo of Carl and I from one of our holidays on the Norfolk Broads, for no other reason than I like the photos and I think it turned out really well. Having being printed on fondant icing, it was surprisingly a lot clearer than I expected it to be, which is great!
We cut both cakes in half so we could both try the chocolate sponge (in the gold case) and the traditional sponge (in the silver case). They were both absolutely delicious, the sponge itself was really soft, sweet and light on both of the cakes. It definitely wasn’t dense and heavy which is usually how all cakes I make myself turn out! And the icing photo tasted like birthday cake icing, which is my absolute favourite!
These cakes would make lovely gifts for any occasion, party favours or wedding favours and they offer both cupcakes and full-sized cakes too, which can be personalised. I think the personalisation they offer if the best thing about Caketoppers, especially the photo icing which would be really special for an occasion. Their boxes of cupcakes start from £14.30 and you can also have your own message printed on the top as well.
Thank you to Caketoppers for sending me these yummy treats to eat! I’d highly recommend them as a service if you’re in the market for personalised treats for a special occasion!
Would you go for the traditional sponge or the chocolate sponge? Have you ever used a photo printing service before on a cake?
