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, pre-measured. You need to supply the milk, eggs, and butter.
The Whisk Takers kits provide easy to follow instructions with numbered, pre-measured dry ingredients. Their products are “designed to make the baking experience fun, easy and mess-less, with the convenience of being delivered straight to your door.” There are six different subscription choices, including gluten-free, vegan, and the Surprise Me box. Kits start at $19.95 for the month to month subscription and are sent three days after the 15th, only in the U.S.
Don’t forget Fido! Whisk Takers has a unique subscription option for doggie treats.
Cultural Cakes Kit features a new country in every box, includes a unique spice from the region of the month, used in the cupcake recipe and special treats. Don’t feel like baking? There are mini-kits available with snacks and cultural information from the monthly country. Subscriptions start at $24.99, shipped at the beginning of the month.
Food Stirs was started by three friends who love baking with their families but couldn’t find natural baking kits. Food Stirs products include fair trade chocolate, chemical-free colors, and other natural ingredients. The themed boxes include pre-measured dry ingredients, recipe cards, shapes, and supplies for great results. Starting at $24.95, they ship at the beginning of every other month.

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. Kits start at $4.99.
All of these companies offer gift options for that person on your list who already has everything. Happy baking!
