  1. This looks fun to try, I may give it a whirl.

  2. OK, I looked at the review that Nancy found.

    They basically provide you with chunks of already-baked cake and pots with the toppings. So it seems all you do is make balls from the cake and then roll them on the toppings.

    I’m having a hard time figuring out what the audience for this kit would be. I’m pretty sure college students would prefer the $20, and moms of toddlers can buy the ingredients at the supermarket for much less.

  3. There’s also Sarah Michelle Geller’s new box called FoodStirs that’s similar to this. I’d love to see that reviewed…

  4. Hm… I have the same questions as others. I love services like Plated, so I’ll probably give it a shot– especially if I can try it for free.

  5. This sounds awesome. I am going to try this.

  6. This sounds cute for college students – I know when I was in college, I loved baking but didn’t have space for flour and sugar.

    I want a box that provides high-quality ingredients (like fancy cocoa powders or hard-to-find extracts) to inspire my baking!

    • When I was in college, we didn’t have access to facilities where you could actually bake. Perhaps that is a general problem with dorms built in the 1760s? (Well, my upperclass dorm was built in 1914 — still no baking facilities, though.)

      Anyway, will be interested to see Lindsey’s review. I wonder if the techniques used will be within the capabilities of ordinary people, or if you will need specialized equipment like Raw Spice Bar frequently requires (ice cream maker?).

  7. This is a fun idea! I am looking forward to Lindsey’s review.

  8. I wish you could see more weeks than just this week which are Strawberry chocolate truffles.

  9. What a fun idea! I will wait to see a review before I bite though. It’s very spendy and I’m a decent baker so I want to make sure it’s worth it.

  10. I think they need to provide more information about exactly what they are offering and the quality of their ingredients. What’s difference between their $22 service and a cake-pop kit I can buy at the supermarket for less than $5?

    • I agree.

    • My thoughts exactly, that box didn’t seem worth the price point in the least. I get that a lot of the food Sub Boxes price points are based on convenience though, so I guess that might be the reason behind it.

      For me, I don’t feel the need for new recipes to come to me I already have a folder of bookmarks with at least 10-20 I need to try. So unless it’s an unusual ingredient I couldn’t track down being sent to me or a it comes with a specialized tool and an explanation of how to use it it doesn’t seem to be that exciting.

    • I agree.

      On the other hand, I love baking (and cooking in general) so I’ll give them a shot since it’s a free trial. I’ll just skip/cancel after my order arrives and keep an eye out on upcoming boxes. That’s what I’ve done with Hello Fresh so it’ll probably work out with this sub too.
