The Decorate With Flowers Bake box (review)


You may remember back in February, I told you all about Bake Box, the bi-monthly subscription box for baking enthusiasts that comes packed with recipes and bakeware relating to a specific theme. The theme for my first box was Spots and Stripes and I managed to recreate a very funky Polka Dot Swiss Roll and Chocolate Bundt Cake, following the detailed recipe sheets.


I usually manage to produce tasty food but I definitely need to improve my presentation, so these kinds of recipes and techniques pushed me way out of my comfort zone, but I was really pleased with the results. Each Bake Box contains six recipes and they give you two months in between boxes so that you have time to create them all before the next box arrives. Well, it shows how hectic my life has been lately because my latest Bake Box is on the way and I haven't even had a chance to play with the last one (from two months ago) yet !


I shut myself in the kitchen this afternoon though and had a play with some of the recipes. The theme for this box was Decorate With Flowers.


The bakeware included in this edition was a rose-shaped silicon cake mould, a chocolate deco mat and transfer sheet, a silicon 4-cup flower mould to make pretty jellies, a set of four plunger cutters to make delicate flowers, a pie topper with a flower design, three sets of flower cutters and rainbow dust lustre dust. I like the way everything is always the same pale lilac colour so that as your collection grows, it all matches.


Just like last time, my first glimpse of the recipes and pictures had me thinking "eeek, there's no way I'll ever pull those off" but I will give it my best shot and report back, whether it's a resounding success or a total fail ! I didn't think I'd ever manage to recreate the polka dot swiss roll and that came out really well, so never say never !


I'll be back in the next couple of days to show you how my efforts turned out !
