I can’t tell you how excited I was when I was offered the opportunity to include Bake Me a Wish in my Fantastic Father’s Day Finds reviews and giveaways promotions.
I have been looking for a good excuse to try one of these cakes after having read several great reviews on other blogs. The only twist was that the offer was part of their “Cake in the Face” promotion. Yup. I had to ambush my hubby. I immediately agreed.
Bake Me A Wish cakes come in over 20 flavors and they can be shipped overnight to any place in the USA. If the mouthwatering chocolate and scrumptiously moist cake weren’t good enough reasons to send them to Dad, the company also gives 5% off all proceeds to send birthday cakes to soldiers overseas. Now that’s something that Dads can really feel good about.
About the product…
I chose to get the Tiramisu Classico Cake, which is coffee-washed cake layered with classic mascarpone custard and garnished with delicious coffee whipped cream, dark chocolate shaves and a dusting of cocoa. I could have gotten the Vanilla or the Carrot Cake, but the Tiramisu won out.
What I thought…
Anyone who knows me knows that I love coffee anything, and Tiramisu cake ranks at the top of my list. Tiramisu and Mocha are about the only two ways I can share my love of coffee with my husband. The Tiramisu Classico Cake from Bake Me a Wish was absolutely awesome. While the cake wasn’t quite as pretty as the picture when I opened it (courtesy of a heat wave and the delivery driver setting the box upside down), it was absolutely delicious.
I told my husband that the cake was for a review when it arrived. As it would happen, my Aunt Karyn and Uncle Larry called to say they were going to be in the neighborhood, and I asked them to stay for dinner. I let them in on my little secret. Then, after OVER ANALYZING IT and thinking “Man, I didn’t even shove cake in his face at our wedding…” I asked my Uncle Larry to be the bad guy. LOL.
Fortunately, my husband was a good sport, and Larry didn’t get cake ALL over the place.
BTW, this is my first personal video inclusion in a review—what do you think?
As I mentioned, BMAW has over 20 different delicious flavors. Here is what a few of them look like…
And, as if you needed another reason to shop Bake Me a Wish, the company donates 5% of sales to Operation Birthday Cake, a program that sends birthday cakes to men and women serving in our military overseas. Having loved ones that serve, I appreciate this!
What I would change…
I wouldn’t really change anything, even though the top of our cake was a little unpretty. It was still delicious, and in the end, that is what matters.
How I rate it…
Lady V dZine (and all those involved in our Cake in the Face video) gives Bake Me a Wish a happy five out of five hearts.
