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

Red Velvet NYC answered...December 2019

Hi there!

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,
Agathe

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.

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.

Disappointing and NOT worth $49

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...

Delicious and easy!

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 😭

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!

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 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!

Red Velvet NYC said...May 14, 2019

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 :)

Wonderful subscription!

If I can do it, anyone can make these cupcakes. I was looking for something to give my wife for mother's day. My wife had ordered from the company in the past, so I decided to surprise her with a dessert made by me and our daughter. It did not disappoint. All the ingredients were high quality, which is important to my family, especially my wife. The cupcakes were really fun to make with Hailey, they were delicious and looked really nice. My wife was so happy and surprised. Either I or my wife will order again. thank you for making cupcakes that rock, and letting a dad hang out with his daughter.

Red Velvet NYC said...May 28, 2019

Thanks so much for your review! So glad to hear that your cupcakes turned out well, and that you were able to bake with your daughter - there's nothing we like to hear more than families baking together :) We hope you keep enjoying baking with us! Feel free to send or post pictures, Geoff! Thanks again for being a great customer!!

So happy I ordered!

I am not a baker, but I needed a delicious dessert for an event. I decided to order Red Velvet after one of my friends recommended the company, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. First of all, portions are huge! Every single person got a dessert (with some getting two!). Secondly, it was delicious. I don't know how many people asked me for the recipe, and I had to keep saying that I would get back to them about it. Lastly, beautiful. The desserts looked almost too good to eat. Thank you! Will definitely be ordering again.

Thank you so much, Annie! So happy to hear this and can't wait to get you baking with us again soon!
