Q: Hi! What kind of ingredients do you need to have at home for the cupcake recipes? Asked by Mehreen A., December 2020

Culture Cakes Kit answered...December 2020

Each kit comes with a unique recipe that relates to the featured country/culture and only comes with 1-2 exotic ingredients to match. With this, there is never a constant recipe that will always require the same base products. But as they are a cupcake recipes, you can expect to need basic cupcake baking ingredients like flour, sugar, baking powder, eggs and frosting ingredients.
Although we strive to help teach our subscribers about baking and unique ingredients, often times, you can easily get away with using boxed cake mix, and canned frosting as a base for each recipe.

I am excited about this box, but I placed the order over a month ago and have received nothing. For a monthly subscription this should not happen. I cant comment on the quality of the product, because I have nothing to review. I will be cancelling my subscription.

Where is my Order?

I cant give better review at this moment and the customer service and shipping has not happened yet. I ordered on December 6 the page said that if it was purchased before dec 10 then it would ship by the 15 for Christmas. I did not receive any confirmation of shipping and processing. at this current moment It still says they are preparing my order.

Where’s my box?

So my box renewed and I haven’t even received my first box yet. It’s asking me to review my box when I haven’t even received it yet. Kind of wish I would’ve gotten this box sooner so I can give an actual review. Hope it’s a good box

I ordered this on December 5th as a Christmas gift. This was marketed on Cratejoy's website as a Christmas gift. The listing stated the first box would ship immediately to arrive before Christmas. On December 10th I received an email that said my order will be shipping soon. A few days before Christmas I still hadn't received anything, so I contacted Culture Cakes. I was told the earliest my order would ship was January 4th. They claimed Cratejoy had altered their offer and given me misinformation. The whole thing seemed like a scam. The only good thing I can say about Culture Cakes is when I canceled my subscription because they made it clear they had no intention of providing the product/service that I paid for they did refund my money.

Buyer Beware!!!

I recently purchased one box to be sent as a gift. After looking at the photos and watching the unboxing video provided, I decided that this box would be great for my niece. When I received the box, it was a plain white box rather than the professional box in the pictures. Once I opened the box to check the items, there was no wrapping, no tissue, and one ingredient that was not labeled. The objects were literally thrown in a box with a shipping label. When I reached out and contacted the seller, she told me that the Culture Cakes boxes where not being used because "due to current shipping logistic issues in the world, we are not able to ship custom printed boxes consistently at this time." In response to the packaging, she told me that the photos on the page are "staged photography" and all items are laid inside the box. She then explained that "it sounds like the label sticker may have fallen off, as the other few hundred licorice powder packages had its label." At the end of the day, if that is the product that you are going to give, then there needs to be something in the description that states, your box will not be represented in the pictures and videos that you are advertising. This is the very definition of false advertising. I hope no one else has to go through the...

I purchased a six-month Snacks Only subscription for my parents and they've greatly enjoyed their culinary trip around the world so far, three months in. My mom, in particular, loves to explore different cuisines and cultures, so the curated snacks help scratch her travel itch. And on my end, it was super easy to set up initially, without having to worry each month about arranging shipping. Thanks for the opportunity to give them a memorable gift!

Got this as a Mother’s Day gift for mom and she just got her 1st (of three) boxes. Here’s how it’s going:
1) order screen seems to auto pop shipping to cardholder address so if this is a gift you will have to go back to your order and change the shipping info. Kinda clunky.
2) box appears to be missing two of the snack items. I’ve contacted the seller and hope to get some clarification or resolution soon.
3) the “unique” cupcake ingredient was a single lemon. Maybe that’s something hard to get in other places but my mom has a lemon tree in her yard so.... and there were no other ingredients or supplies to assist in said recipe.
Hopefully boxes 2-3 will be more interesting.

HI Stephanie,
Thanks for your business and feedback, we appreciate it. Oh no! Very sorry to hear about this, as we specifically shipped out your mom's gift earlier than scheduled, to ensure that it was received in time for Mother's Day. Very sorry to hear that the kit delivered incomplete, as that is not how it was shipped out. I see that you emailed us about 10 minutes before posting this review, so we are happy to help further through email. But also for reference:
1) It looks like you signed up for our kit through our Cratejoy listing. Very sorry to hear you had trouble with applying the correct shipping address during sign up. We haven't heard about this from anyone else, but we are happy...

I barely just purchased this as a gift and Culture cakes keeps sending me emails stating they are mailing the gift out TO ME! I have sent them 3 emails stating the correct address to send it to the recipient. Their reply was that I had MY address listed on the order form.That is NOT correct. I sent another email with a screen shot of the recipients address. I have not had a reply back yet. I hope this works far I am very unsatisfied with this company! Will post a new review based on company's email response & if shipping address is corrected.
Cust. Svc. was quick to respond for help.They kept in contact w me to make sure problem was resolved.Great Customer Service & very kind! This is a gift so I will update Curation & Quality stars once recipient receives it.Would order from again! Thank you Culture Cakes!

Really really really enjoy this box! I have 6 kids, and we all love food, especially food from different countries with different flavors and style. We all are able to try every piece, and learn about what we are eating and the origin from which country it came. The pamphlet that comes in the box is super informative without overloading you with too much information. My kids really like the part where there is about 7 or 8 different words to learn in that language. And lastly, in the box is always some type of recipe with one of the ingredients in the box. My 2 oldest always love making those unique recipes. This box always leads us into learning more about that country, finding their country anthem, or different animals in that country, ect. It really is one of my top picks for sure, very fun and educational! I would give it 12 stars if I could. Thanks everyone at culture cakes!
