Home Bake Box subscription

Home Bake Box is a fun baking subscription box, I like that I get to try something new every month and develop my baking skills.

20160117_112124_Fotor2January’s bake box had 3 complete baking kits (recipe cards and all the ingredients except perishables. They even included the heart cupcake cases and cookie cutters). The theme was Valentine’s Day.

Strawberry Specked Cupcakes

20160207_160656_FotorUsing real strawberry pieces in both the cakes and in the batter, I created delicious cupcakes and strawberry buttercream specked with red, and topped off with pink and red strawberry flavoured glitter sugar sprinkles.  These were baked in heart cupcake cases – so cute and perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Shortbread

20160117_112737_Fotor3My first batch were more brown than red. I emailed Abhi at Home Bake Box and she was so helpful, she kindly resent the ingredients but again they turned out more brown than red, the red food colouring did not make any difference. Some other people on social media said that they had the same problem. I was a little disappointed but the shortbread tasted lovely.

Raspberry and Rosewater Gateau

This gateau was delicious!  The rose water perfectly complemented the raspberries and the buttercream.

20160130_211706_Fotor520160130_212510_Fotor6This subscription box costs 19.99 a month (free delivery and no contract) and is definitely worth trying. I enjoyed baking the cupcakes and the gateau and I’m already looking forward to my next home bake box. I can’t wait to see what baking challenge awaits me.

Keep smiling 🙂
