Anyone used this? Is it any good?

Not actually subscribed but did get the cinnamon bun kit from Costco (4 packs) and very impressed. A friend also bought her niece the rainbow cake kit and had good feedback.

I got a couple of free boxes via an offer.

Nothing remarkable, imo. I wouldn't pay that much for it. But then I am a decent baker. It's probably good for people that want to increase their confidence in baking or increase their repertoire.

We get this- it's great! Every month is totally different, and it's great to have everything there. Good for trying different things, and also for the monthly novelty of the delivery!

It’s convenient and easy if you’re not a confident baker. Everything is provided except wet ingredients and they turn out pretty good

I’m considering it for my 8yo. They’ve expressed an interest and I thought it could be a good way of allowing them to do a bit of independent baking.

I’d imagine it would be perfect for an 8yo. Ds received a six month subscription to this when he was about 9 or 10yo and he loved it. Obviously you supply the wet stuff eg eggs or butter or milk.

The brownies were particularly good, I recall.

Am I the only person who thought this was about covid deaths?

We had it for about a year at which point DD lost enthusiasm! All receipes turned out well although they can be quite time consuming as they usually involve some type of decoration. A little pricey I thought but worth doing as different types of receipes which make it quite interesting especially if your DC is interested in baking.

Forgot to say that all ingredients are pre weighed so perfect for an 8 year old.

Ideal for an 8 year old imo.

Probably. I'm still trying to figure out why you thought it be 😆

EverybodyIsInteresting Sat 28-Aug-21 23:34:44

(I'm laughing at my inability to figure it out btw, not at you)

I would have thought that for an 8 YO it would be a good time to spend £5-10 on a set of scales and even less on a bag of flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder etc so they don't start spending a tenner a time on less than a quid's worth of ingredients or think that baking is more complicated than schemes like this make out.

I think its a nice idea but when I looked into it, the price is very high for what you get. "Dry" ingredients would basically be flour, sugar and baking powder plus i expect each time there is a "special" ingredient like cinnamon or whatever. These things literally cost pennies. I would rather buy a good baking book and pick out a recipe to make each month, you could buy enough of the ingredients to make the recipe a dozen times over for the cost of the subscribers box.

I know all of these types of things cost more than doing it yourself but this seems particularly noticeable because they don't even include everything!

DustySpringboard Sun 29-Aug-21 07:46:37

Oh yes, definitely an expensive way to bake but great if someone isn't a confident baker or likely to have all the relevant ingredients.

It caught my eye in Costco so purchased-really easy to make, turned out perfectly, very delicious but yes, I had all the ingredients anyway so was a bit ££!
