We have many names for the things we love. Postkakan’s different treats are sometimes called cakes and other times called pastries. But what is the difference between them? It’s not always that easy to tell which is which, because they are pretty much the same. Usually, they are both made with a sponge cake or something similar. A cake often has a garnish and several layers, but pastries can turn out the same way. So what’s really the correct answer here? Should the name be mail order cake or mail order pastry?

Both cakes and pastries are delicious treats that most of us love. The difference between them mostly has to do with what we associate them with. Pastries can be more of an everyday treat, while a cake is usually something we eat when we celebrate something, such as someone’s birthday. Cakes are often associated with several layers, candles and/or decorations. In addition to this, cakes are usually bigger than pastries.

Looking at the reasoning above, it’s safe to say that treats delivered by Postkakan can be seen as both cakes and pastries. Pastries are relatively small, flat and simple, but cakes generally have several layers and you can add extra decorations. What really determines if our desserts are seen as a cake or a pastry has to do with the occasion and the reason why you are buying it. If you and your colleagues are meant to eat it with a cup of coffee in the afternoon, you might call it a pastry, but if you are buying it for your mom on Mother’s Day, it might well be considered a cake.

In other words, it is up to you to decide what you want to name whatever dessert you are ordering – mail order cake or mail order pastry – this is part of the Mail Cake’s unique concept.
