I'm in a long distance relationship, and I'm in California while he's in Scotland. It's been difficult finding him presents that don't cost an arm and a leg to ship over to the United Kingdom that I can purchase while residing in the States.
Long story short: This subscription box is well worth the money and a wonderful present for anyone.
I've bought it for him twice now, and he's absolutely loved the sweets they send(I've heard him rave about how delicious they are). There have been absolutely no issues in both of the times I've purchased it for him. I've noted that the customer service is great, and I've gotten updates about when the box would ship, which was very much appreciated. For the February box, they even included a Valentine's Day balloon! This service has given me a way to spoil my boyfriend half a world away, and I can't thank the Cake Tasting Club enough for that.
I wrote this review (below) while in a lot of pain, and wasn't very fair. Vicky has now explained to me that the additives are mainly in the biscuit and paste that they used, and that she is actually very careful about additives. I was very frustrated about the difficulty of cancelling, but this is a problem of using Cratejoy on a phone, I think, and not the Cake Tasting Club's fault. (I had a similar problem trying to edit this review!) I've been on chemo recently, and I think my taste buds are affected, so don't trust me on that either! :D
My previous comments:
I hoped the cooking would be fairly natural but there was a long list of the additives in the cakes, and it looked, and tasted, like something I could have picked up in the supermarket. I've tried to cancel three times, but the web site is still showing it as an active subscription, and I've received a message today saying that my payment for next month's box will be taken on Monday. I can't find any way to remove my bank cards from the site, so I can't stop tomorrow's payment. To be honest I'd hesitate to use the Cratejoy website again - even though other sellers have been very good. I've cancelled all other subscriptions, and should be able to cancel this subscription and remove my bank cards. (I only received this month's box a few days ago, and have been...
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am very sorry that you were so disappointed with our service.
I have cancelled your account so that it won’t renew tomorrow. I apologise that I hadn’t got back to you sooner but as a small business that I run around my family, it can take me a while to get through my inbox. I can honestly say that I try to be as open as possible with all subscriptions which is why we remind everyone before they renew each month and we will always help if you have problems managing your account online.
With regards to our ingredients, they are always the same kinds of things found in home kitchens. If you look at items...
Wow, this was like a little box of happiness sneaking through my letterbox! Everything was delicious and nicely packaged and the little recipe card to make one the biscuits was a lovely touch... I’ll definitely be giving them a whirl!
Thank you for the lovely review Anne. We are so glad that you enjoyed your Cake Box. Love Vikki and Dom xxJan 09, 2018
I regularly have cake cravings, so signing up was a no brainer. The cakes arrived through my letterbox and all four cakes were exceptional. I can not wait for the next delivery!
Slightly sceptical about cake in the post but it was all delicious! Moist and flavourful, I’d definitely recommend
Everything I have tried has been absolutely gorgeous, but more than anything, I love that The Cake Tasting Club is a great self-care treat. Once a month I get to look forward to sitting down with my daughter with tea & milk to open our box and dig in together. She absolute loves the treat and I absolutely love the excuse to relax with tea & cake. It’s monthly reminder to spoil yourself.
My first classic box was the February 2018 one and I’m so glad I signed up! I saw someone post about the cake tasting club and I had a look. I love everything from the packaging to the lovely little recipe cards and of course the cakes! Nothing nicer then making a cupper and having a slice of yummy cake! Can’t wait for Marchs box!
Had my first box of cake which I begrudgingly shared with the husband! Both of us really enjoyed all the cake and cannot wait for next months already 😂 My fave this time has got to be the chocolate cake mmmmmmmmm
I bought my stepdad a subscription, then he booked himself a last minute holiday which meant he'd miss the last box!! The cake tasting club very kindly postponed his last box until he arrived home the following month so he didn't misos out on his cake!! Thank you Dom & Vikki!!
