Q: My daughter LOVES to bake!! My son has Celiac Disease (no gluten in our home) and a peanut allergy. Is there a kit for her?! Asked by Valerie, December 2019
Great question. We offer both gluten free and peanut free recipes, however we are not a nut or gluten free facility. We are very careful about cross contamination but we like everyone to know that both our nut suppliers and we process all nuts.
If you place an order, make sure to email us to let us know so we can be extra careful with the box and pick some lovely baking kits for your daughter.
Hope that helps!
Thanks so much,
CEO & Co-Founder
Q: Hi! This looks wonderful! I know this is an out there question, but is there a vegan option? Thank you!Asked by Milissa O., May 2020
Hi Milissa! Sorry no vegan options yet. Just gluten free and nut free and some dairy free. Sorry :)
Q: Truly amazed by the presentation alone and the baked goods are delicious. We didn't get to share with friends, the quantity is perfect but none left the kitchen. Would love the recipes.Asked by Karrie C., January 2020

Q: Hi there ! I just received my box , as this is a Christmas gift I don’t want to open it and damage . Does this need to remain refrigerated till opening (Xmas)? Thank you ! Asked by Kirsten T., December 2019
Your box will be perfectly fine in the fridge until Christmas :) Or you can take out the perishables and refrigerate only those, and then reassemble the box. Hope that helps. Merry Christmas!

I've tried other subscriptions like this but this beats them 1000x over! The packaging is gorgeous, the recipe cards are gorgeous, everything is just amazing. The only bummer is that the measurements aren't on the recipe cards so there's no way of recreating the delicious goods 😭
Thank you so much, Danielle! We so appreciate your kind words. We offer every recipe with full quantities and measurements on the website in our RECIPE tab via the footer. So you can recreate these whenever you want. Let us know if you need anything else! Thank you :)
I wish I could post a video of my utter and sheer joy of this box. My first box ever came in the mail and I couldn't tear it open fast enough. The month of october was pumpkin cupcakes and a chocolate pecan torte. I followed each recipe according to given instructions the only thing I changed was I didn't use the included spices with the pumpkin cupcakes I used a spice called five spice since I personally find it makes pumpkin anything amazing. Both desserts turned out amazing. So perfect and so happy! I think this is perfect for kids and adults of any skill level!
I have tried numerous baking boxes and this is the best one by far. Not only do you get 2 recipes (not 1 like almost every other box out there), but you get recipes that feed your family. 18 cupcakes, or cakes that feed 10-12 people. The packaging is premium and the recipes are just as high end as Martha Stewart or Bon Apetit magazine. I am so impressed month after month!
Thanks so much, Gabrielle! We're so glad you are impressed and we love having you bake with us. Excited to get you some more Martha Stewart style recipes :)
The Red Velvet NYC box was was excellent for this non-baker. I can honestly say the cupcakes were simple to make, beautiful to look at and delicious to eat!!!
The box was packaged beautifully! Everything was neatly sorted into a bag for each of the two recipes. So far I have only made the cookies. I was amazed at the result, I felt like a pro. My husband took them to work and they were a huge hit. I can’t wait to make the cake that also came in the box. And I for sure can’t wait for next month. Amazing job guys! I have gotten tons of different subscription boxes and this is probably the best I have ever received.
I got this box as a gift for my fiancé’s mother and my mother. They were both really excited when they opened it. My mom was glad about the exact measurements and ingredients.
I also got to try the desserts they made, they were delicious.
Absolutely adorable. Fun and super easy. Thank you!!
We love this box! Beautifully presented with a red ribbon, a very sweet hand written encouragement note and tucked in white tissue paper. Two different recipes that are amazingly delicious and easy. Perfectly labeled and measured ingredients. We were just amazed by this crate.
Thank you for the sweet note.
We were EXTREMELY unimpressed from the moment we opened the box. The box itself was punctured, but that could very well have happened in transit so I'm not dinging the company for that. First, the vanilla had leaked all over the inside of one of the bags, but thankfully we had our own. Then, the butter wasn't even cold. It looked like the cold packaging was not adequately sealed and thus not cold when it arrived. So packaging is an issue for this company, it seems.
As for the producuts: we received recipes and ingredients for a coconut cake and a lemon tart. We made the coconut cake tonight and even after carefully following the instructions, it didn't rise--not even a little. My guess is that the baking powder was old or had been frozen at some point. Now we're left with two coconut pancakes to frost instead of a two-layer cake. The taste of the cake was nothing special or impressive, either. Maybe the lemon tart will wow us...but I'm not holding out much hope.
Bottom line: This was super basic, the freshness of the ingredients was questionable, and the packaging was not temperature appropriate. Basically, I just paid $49 for what would cost, at most, $15 if I'd bought the individual ingredients myself.
Hi Ashley, We're really sorry to hear about your experience with the Coconut Cake. This is of course, not what we aim for -- we want our bakers to be happy! I'm personally disappointed to hear that you wrote a very negative review (we've never received 1 star) without even trying to bake the second baking kit. During this immense time of crisis, we ask for patience and understanding in regards to shipping. FedEx and UPS are doing the best they can and it sounds like they damaged your box and treated it so roughly that an ingredient broke in transit. We are always happy to replace anything that gets broken or damaged but you did not contact us to do so so we have...
These make the best gifts! Everything in the baking kit is so beautifully packaged and makes the process super easy. Great way to learn how to bake, and give someone a unique and fun experience. The ingredients are of top quality yet it's incredibly affordable!
