Sending a cute cake is a wonderful way to celebrate our loved ones and commemorate their birthdays, anniversaries, and other important milestones in their lives. Cake is an integral part of every celebration, and no gathering can be complete without a cake-cutting ceremony. 🥳
In the digital age, it is easier than ever to send a cake without going to a local bakery.
One of the best and most popular options to do so is Sendacake. This well-known gifting service offers unique gifting experiences that your loved ones won’t forget.
If you are looking for reliable reviews, I recently tried and tested their Explosion Box and have written a thorough review that I’m excited to share with you. So check it out before you place an order with the company.
I’ve also made and posted a video of my family and I unboxing the cake so that you can get an idea of what it feels like to receive a cake from this small business.
🎂 What Is It Really Like?
Don't be alarmed, an exploding birthday cake doesn't explode; however, you will be buzzing with happiness after receiving such a thoughtful gift!
An exploding birthday cake has a tiny cake that is delicately wrapped into a small box. Upon opening the box, an 'explosion' occurs, which can take the form of various gadget butterflies or confetti shooting out. Then you can eat a yummy cake after!
The cake is usually about 3-inches and is customizable. Not only do you get to enjoy the treat, but you are also given a nice portion so there are no concerns about a sugar overload. You have more time to appreciate the gift, rather than take it as another meal to eat.
The Explosion Box is a particularly popular gifting option offered to customers. Its distinct, fun packaging and experience take traditional cake gifting to the next level.
The Explosion Box comes in the following cake flavors:
🍡S’mores Cake Jar Marshmallow Creme
🎊Confetti Sprinkle Cake with Raspberry Frosting
🤵Chocolate Tuxedo Cake with Cookie Frosting
✨Red Velvet Sparkle Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
🍫Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake with Fudge Frosting

All of the cakes are handmade with love and shipped with care. So your recipient is sure to get a great-tasting surprise in one piece!
I ordered the cake with the Flying Butterfly Surprise 🦋 option as a gift for my husband for Father’s Day. Our kids gathered around him as he was opening it. And when the butterflies flew out of the box, he and the kids gasped in genuine surprise!
They absolutely loved the butterfly surprise and the cake, so I know my purchase is totally worth it. The cake tasted great, and it was large enough for sharing with my family of four.
🥳 You can also choose larger-sized cakes for a bigger party!
🦋 Does it need to be refrigerated?
The cakes arrive ready to eat and do not need to be refrigerated. But if you wish to keep the cake for more than five days, it’s best to freeze it to extend its shelf life. Their full-size cakes are delivered cold or frozen with dry ice and dry ice handling instructions.
🦋 How long will Send a Cake stay fresh?
A cake left in a box sounds concerning, but these cakes are made for adventure. It stays fresh at room temperature for five days after delivery. The entire box can get left in the freezer for a month and still work well as new!
They contain milk, wheat, soy, and egg, and are made through equipment that handles nuts. When you get your cake, make sure to store it properly so you are still enjoying high-quality flavor when the time comes. Otherwise, eat your cake the day of so you can experience the delight first-hand!
🦋 Can you reuse it?
Of course, you can't re-eat a cake (though we all wish we could!), but the small add-ons can be reused whenever you please. For example, the fluttering butterflies gift can be rewound up and reused for further celebrations. Other items, such as plushies and photos, can be reused as well.
🦋 Are the butterflies in it real?
The butterflies are not real—they are made with paper. They “fly” out of the cake boxes when they are opened. 🦋
🦋 Is it safe for kids?
Getting a cake explosion box is almost too perfect if you have kids. They'll adore the creativity and have a holiday to remember! And if you find yourself enjoying that cake a bit too much, it offers larger portions for the families who want it all.
🦋 Is it kosher?
They do not mention anything about their cakes being kosher. All they say is that their products—unless noted otherwise—are not gluten-free and contain milk, soy, wheat, and egg.
🦋 How much are the shipping?
The shipping cost varies depending on the cake order. It is calculated at the end of the checkout process and can be previewed before submitting your order. The company may include additional charges such as an overnight fee of $10 or a Saturday fee of $10, depending on your preferred delivery date.
🦋 Where does it come from?
The main place Send a Cake ships from is Seattle, Washington. They ship the U.S.A nationwide from coast to coast (excluding Hawaii and Alaska). However, they do not ship to P.O Boxes, A.P.O./F.P.O., or military addresses.
🦋 Can I send it abroad?
Unfortunately, it only ships products U.S.A nationwide. It can take a lot of time to ship a cake internationally, which would affect the cake's quality. However, the company is working on adding Hawaii and Alaska to their radar, so overseas delivery is a future possibility!
🦋 Can I send it through FEDEX?
Luckily for you, it ships its gifts through FedEx and UPS. With 2-day express shipping guaranteed, the company ensures your cake is delivered on time. There are no slip-ups; your deliveries are just as fast as they are sweet.
🦋 Who is the owner?
James Siew is the CEO; after struggling to find the perfect gift for so long, Siew curated the cake explosion box. It is handled with love and care, with a spice of surprise!
Overall, my family and I were delighted with the purchase and experience. It was a unique and memorable gift that I will be sending my friends and family for future celebratory events.
They also have other cake options that you can choose from, such as the Birthday Cake Explosion Box with Candy Kaboom 🍬 and the Send A Cake Confetti Pop Box 🎉.
I will try them next time and tell you all about the experience!
