The only thing keeping this from being a five star subscription is that it does not come with the recipe. Everyone from my 4 year old to my parent loved the pistachio cupcakes but yet I can’t recreate what they all loved. I doubt I’ll renew as I’ll look for a subscription that provides the recipe.
I bought this subscription box for my grandson for hands on experience for his baking curiousity. He loved making it. Wished the kit came with an actual recipe for him to put in a recipe box of his favorites to enjoy years later. I probably won’t renew and look for another kit that includes this option. Pistachio cup cakes were AWESOME! He is looking forward to his next box!
I enjoyed this box! It was a recipe I probably wouldn’t have tried on my on and the outcome was delicious. My girls (ages 7 and 5) were excited to help me. The instructions were easy to follow and they enjoyed finding the correct ingredient by number and dumping it in. Daddy enjoyed eating the final product. Perfect for the whole family!!
I might add that there was a problem with the initial shipment....it never arrived and I was charged for the 2nd box without ever receiving the 1st. I emailed customer service and they very promptly refunded the renewal charge and sent both boxes. Customer service gets 5 STARS from me. I’ll likely keep the subscription simply because they worked so hard to make it right even when something out of their control kept my box from arriving.
Tasted good but have some suggestions. Directions were easy and the end product was good but think the recipe card should have all information on card to make again on own. It lists ingredients but not measurement. I bought for 3 months which after shipping cost, averages around $25.00 for each shipment. I can't say this was worth that much since I still had to add ingredients and it made an 8x8 dish size of product. I was comparing this to Applebee's blondie and wished it had a glaze that went with it. I'm ready to see what the other 2 months will be like.
This recipe was delicious and very simple, as described. I got a ton of compliments on the pistachio cupcakes. That being said, I asked for a no nut recipe. Also, there were multiple ingredients not included in the box that I had to run to the store to get (sour cream). I understand needing to add the eggs, but the veggie oil should be included in the box at well since it isn't perishable. Additionally, the recipe did not say how many cupcakes the recipe made, which is an oversight in any baking recipe in my opinion. That being said, the recipe was delicious and it was easy, so overall a 4 star box.
A fun recipe. I substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream. I didn't have enough pink salt for all the cupcakes. I couldn't find any info about how many cupcakes this recipe made.
The cupcakes tasted good, but not as rich as I had expected.
