Inside Bake Box

What is in the Bake Box?
Each monthly Bake Box will contain the following:

  • 4-5 bakery goods, each individually packaged, such as: cookies, brownies, cake pops, squares, tarts, granola, sugar cookies etc.

  • 1-2 party/entertaining supplies, such as: greeting cards, plates, napkins, party decor, candles, cupcake/cake toppers etc.

  • an ingredient card listing ingredients for each bakery item

When should I enjoy my baked goods by?
On your ingredient card there will be a “recommended enjoy by date”. This does not mean you can’t eat them after this date, but baked goods are best enjoyed as fresh as possible.
Want to save something for later? Just pop it in your freezer! All items will be tightly packaged making it easy to keep them frozen until you want to enjoy. Just make sure you bring them back to room temperature before serving.


When will I get my Bake Box?
Subscribe by the end of the month, to be included in the following month’s shipment, which will ship out during the second week. For example: if you subscribe on March 31st, your box will ship out second week of April. If you subscribe April 1st, your box will ship out the second week of May.
