Here in the North East we are a little bit spoilt and as well as the usual lazy man's food options of Chinese and Pizza we also have something for those that prefer their takeaway with a little more sugar.
Desserts Delivered are a company who deliver cake and sweet treats straight to your doorstep, perfect if you're suddenly craving something gorgeous to go with your wine and don't want to scare the locals by putting your coat on over your My Little Pony PJs and heading to the nearest supermarket.
Desserts Delivered deliver to Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland and are open every evening to cater for your needs when you get the late night munchies.
The menu has a pretty impressive selection of signature cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, blondies, brownies, donuts and even ice-cream to choose from.
I'd been wanting to try the service out for a while and with my friend Kate here for a weekend visit it seemed the perfect time to give cake takeout a go.
After a good look through the menu we all decided to go for a slice of signature cake each - Kate chose a red velvet tower cake, Simon opted for the sticky toffee tower cake and I selected the chocolate orange tower.
Each slice cost £3.50 so we easily met the £8.00 minimum delivery spend and then it was just an extra £1.50 on top to get the treats delivered to our door.
We put in the order just after 9:00 pm and waited just under an hour for their arrival. The cakes were packaged just as you'd expect a takeout to be presented, but it was pretty amazing to open up the polystyrene cases to find yummy looking cakes rather than chicken chow mein.
The slices were very generous and tasted lovely, towards the end we all started to feel a little full up so it was definitely more than enough cake to satisfy our craving.
I loved my chocolate orange tower, especially because after I'd polished off all the cake I still had a segment of chocolate orange to eat.
We'll definitely be using Desserts Delivered again and if you're after something different to order in on an evening in with friends I'd definitely recommend giving it a go.
