Q: DO you have a list of Countries? If I order before July 1 can I set the Hawaii box? Do your items come from Aldi...hope notAsked by Bonnie F., June 2019
We have previous boxes shown on our website and social media. If you order
before July 1st, you will get the July themed box. Join our email list or
follow us on Instagram for sneak peeks + hints! We currently are not
offering the Hawaii box as a one-time purchase, but there is a chance of it
in the future. We gather each boxes content from a variety of companies,
depending on the theme of the month. We also consciously try to include
small and women-owned businesses that represent a culture in their product.

Q: Does the cake box come with what's in the snack only box?Asked by Kay R., June 2019
Yes! The Culture Cakes Kit comes with all the snacks PLUS exotic
ingredients and cultural cupcake recipes!
SAUDI ARABIA!!! WOW... the snacks were fantastic 💜 I will have to wait to buy cornstarch to make cupcakes... I was surprised that the kit came will expensive ingredients!!! I don't know if I signed up for 1 or 3 months... looking forward to next month!!
Wonderful! So glad that you enjoyed! Can't wait for you to see your August box!
Wonderful idea for a subscription box. Fun and interesting items. Good price. BUT: First, the quality of the packaging and print materials could use an upgrade. Since it was for home use with my 11 year old it was fine. If I had gotten this for an adult or even a teen as a gift, then I would have been more disappointed. Second, the recipe was somewhat flawed. The measurements for liquids were definitely off and needed to be adjusted. After our adjustment the cookie/biscuit was delicious! The filling; however, was pretty gross and also needed to be modified. I've had date filling before and this just wasn't a good one.
All in all we'll keep the subscription it was fun. I'm hopeful that next month's recipe is better. Thanks!
Oh no! I’m so sorry you felt that way about your first box. As a company, we are always working towards bringing you the best quality, while keeping prices reasonable. We strive to satisfy everyone’s taste in food, while still allowing cultural flavors to shine through in the form of the modern cupcake. July’s box definitely had a lot of bold ingredients from Saudi Arabia, and the shortbread- style cupcake was pretty unique in texture. But I understand that everyone has their own preferences. I would love to make it up to you, so I am sending you an email as well. We hope that you enjoy your August box when we explore South America! Thanks for your feedback!
Our July box featured Saudi Arabia with bold, traditional snacks like dates, arabic coffee and ma'amoul cookies. We transformed the traditional Middle Eastern ma'amoul cookie and turned it into a ma'amoul cupcake- then brought the recipe card to you!
