A Tasty Treat from Baker Days

When Gandey HQ were offered the chance to review a delicious freshly baked cake from Baker Days recently we couldn't resist the opportunity! Not only do Baker Days bake the cakes to order, but they also offer you the choice of personalising it with your own design! Designed to fit through our post box at the office, we simply couldn't resist having a little celebration in honour of the amazing The Lady Boys of Bangkok Tour so had their glamorous logo as our design on top of the cake!

The cake itself was amongst the richest and most divine to grace our lunch break. With a lovely moist texture presented in an attractive gift tin, the Baker Days cake exceeded our expectations with it's tastiness. The icing was maybe ever so slightly too sweet for such a delicate cake, but regardless of this the entire cake was devoured in one swoop by the team. We also shared the cake over on The Lady Boys of Bangkok Facebook page which received a lot of admiration! You can order your custom celebration or birthday cake from Baker Days online with prices starting at £14.99. Maybe we should consider releasing a limited edition range of sweet treats in honour of the gorgeous ladyboys?

What would you like to see? Some sparkling cupcakes? Some bedazzling biscuits? How about a range of custom cake pops?

Tiger Temple Thailand

Thailand is well known for it's tourist attractions. From the Lady Boys in the Bangkok district to the beautiful temples and ancient cities, if variety is the spice of life then Thailand is that super hot curry which lingers in your mouth for hours after you've eaten it. There's something for everyone in Thailand with a constant stream of things to do. One of the more controversial and rather interesting attractions for tourists to sink their teeth in to is the renowned Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi where Buddhist monks have a hands-on relationship with the Tigers in a remarkably up close environment. The Tiger Temple, also known as 'Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua' to native speakers, was founded in 1994 after a cub was taken in when it's mother fell victim to poachers. Since this the tiger population of the Temple has risen to around 100 of these feline friends, a majority of which came to the temple as cubs and grown in to the fabulously majestic cat's they are today. As shown from the images below, the tigers are used to the interaction of their human friends and are friendly and personal with the monks and visitors alike. The Tiger Temple offers visitors the chance to bottle feed the cubs, take a tour with tigers around the area, and even have your picture to capture this amazing experience forever.

Although the Tiger Temple has been criticised by animal welfare groups, it is insisted that the temple is a place which respects and looks after these fabulous feline's and the aim is to one day release all of the tigers back in to the wild. The Tiger Temple offers some wonderful packages which really are once in a lifetime opportunities, and a must see if you are travelling to Thailand this summer!
In other news, the Ladyboys of Bangkok have hit the road again and are performing at a few theatre venues whilst their wonderful Sabai Pavilion makes it's way to Cardiff!
