I’m very excited to announce that I am now a Brand Ambassador for Bake Box, this means I get to share with you what’s inside each new Bake Box as I get them, and what I make using the items inside. I’m combining the unboxing of Boxes 2 & 3 into this blog post and I can’t wait to share with you all the goodies that were inside and the treats that I’ve baked with them so far! There is also a giveaway at the end of this post to win a 6 month subscription of Bake Box so keep reading!
The theme for Box 2 was Springtime In Paris, which I think is such a fantastic theme as I love the French style of baking. Inside the box was:
- A madeline tray
- A silicone brush
- Eiffel tower and cat shaped and embossed cookie cutters
- A heart shaped macaron mat
- 2 flower presses
- 3 tear drop shaped cookie cutters
- A black decorating pen with edible ink
The Eiffel Tower and cat shaped cookie cutters were so unique and pretty, I was particulary excited to try them out. I thought the silicone brush was especially useful as it can be used for so many different things, and the madeline tray looked like it would create beautifully shell shaped cakes.
There were also 6 Parisian themed recipes inside. Each card has full details on how to make each recipe, step by step instructions and expert tips. The cards also correspond to a different item in the Bake Box, so you immediately have some inspiration to help you use each of your new baking toys.
From Box 2 I made Parisienne Biscuits. The cookie cutters and embossers were really easy to use, the recipe was simple to follow, and I love how pretty the final results are. However I definitely need more practice with the decorating pen!
The theme for box 3 was Decorate With Flowers, such a pretty a feminine theme, and inside the box was:
- A rose shaped silicone cake mould
- Flower jelly moulds
- Flower shaped cookie cutters
- 4 flower shaped plungers
- A flower decorating template
- A pie top pastry cut out
- Pink blush rainbow dust
The rose cake mould immediately stood out for me, I thought it was gorgeous. I also loved the pie top pastry cutter, which I thought could also be used as a template to dust icing sugar over a cake with, and the flower jelly moulds are so beautiful too.
The recipe cards were are floral themed in both flavour and apperance. And just like the box before, each card corresponds to an item in the Bake Box. The recipes are all very detailed, simple to follow, and some of them include expert tips to help you get the best results. They are also all hole punched so you can collect them in a binder.
I made this gorgeous rose cake using the silicone mould from the Decorate With Flowers theme in Box 3. It was easy to make, tasted delicious, and I greased and floured the mould as the recipe card instructed and it came out easily and looked beautiful!
