The Innocent Baker Review May 2019

The Innocent Baker is Canada’s FIRST Gourmet Baking Box! The box comes straight into your home every month complete with pre-measured artisanal ingredients, an easy-to-follow, step-by-step themed recipe card and a surprise gift to assist you on the road to making delicious desserts for friends and family! They kindly sent us this box for review.

If you read my reviews on a regular basis you will know that The Innocent Baker is a new favorite subscription. It is a Canadian box, which I absolutely love, and it is a baking box, which I also love. I’m a baker at heart and the fact that The Innocent Baker sends me a new baking project each month, along with all the ingredients and tools, makes me pretty darn happy.

Subscription Details

When you sign up for The Innocent Baker you have 3 subscription options to choose from:

  • month-to-month

Have you ever wanted to bake but found yourself missing that ONE ingredient that could make it happen? Have you ever gotten excited about a recipe only to get disappointed with the complicated directions and lackluster results? Have you ever wanted to try a recipe that called for a small amount of an unusual ingredient but found that sourcing and stocking said ingredient was not worth the time, money and effort. If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then The Innocent Baker box is for you!

Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the May The Innocent Baker box….

The Innocent Baker Review May 2019 – Final Thoughts

If you read last month’s The Innocent Baker review you will know that I made the recipe prior to the review and shared photos of the final product. I was so impressed with how easy and fun the recipe was to make. I used it as dessert for Easter Dinner as it arrived just in time for the holiday. My family absolutely LOVED the mini carrot cakes. This month I didn’t have time to make the recipe prior to the review but what I plan on doing is keeping the box in my pantry and saving it for the next time we have company over. That’s the great thing about this box. You can keep it on hand for last minute dessert ideas or entertaining. I already had a peek at the June recipe and I am BEYOND excited to make it. Stay tuned for that review……..
