Baking made easy!
Meal kit delivery systems like Blue Apron and Plated have become the rage. They take all the stress out of cooking dinner because the menu has been decided and all the ingredients have been delivered. Now there are dessert-only kit delivery systems – my idea of Heaven!! I like to be inspired to try new things. These kits send all the non-perishable ingredients, premeasured. You need to supply the milk, eggs and butter.
Foodstirs allows you to buy their baking kits with a monthly subscription or make one time purchases on their website. The subscription plan choices are for a single kit, 3 kits, 6 kits or 12 kits. Prices start at $14.99 for a single kit, then volume discounts apply for additional kits. The kits arrive every other month. The choices include cupcake cones, apple cinnamon pancakes, gingerbread cookies, cookie bouquet and brownie pops.. The ingredients are organic and decorations are chemical-free. The instructions are kid-friendly. The kits are seasonally themed and festive.

Slight variations on the theme:
Scratch and Grain was started by two moms who wanted to make baking fun and easy. It is not a subscription/delivery dessert service. Instead, it sells the baking kits online. There are ten baking kits for cookies, cornbread, cupcakes/cake, pumpkin bar, coffee cake/muffins and cheesecake brownies. There are five gluten-free baking kits, The kits contain all natural and GMO-free ingredients. Their mixes can be made by any age. Five percent of their profits are donated to charity. Each kit is $7.99.
My Bakers Box contains unique baking accessories and recipes but no ingredients. Each box has a theme with recipes and ideas. They offer 1, 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions. The month to month plan is $18.95 a month, the 3 month plan is $50.85, the 6 month plan is $89.70 and the annual plan is $155.40. All plans are prepaid and automatically renew on the last day unless they have received different instructions from you.
