Sorry about the sync being off again…. never know until it’s too late!
Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Doorstep Desserts Box
I had no idea what I was going to receive and I was relieved when I saw it was Carrot Cake!
Everything that we received in our Doorstep Desserts Kit!
This looks good RIGHT NOW – why am I bothering with all this preparation stuff!?
So what is all this stuff?
There were two layers of Carrot Cake included in the kit
They were delicious and moist. A perfect example of a carrot cake, rich in texture and a warm flavor that suits the season!
One container of white buttercream icing
If you look closely you can see a finger mark. It’s mine, don’t judge me! It was amazing and much fluffier than typical buttercream. I don’t know if it is whipped or what but this stuff was tip top!
Carrot Cake Icing
I love Carrot Cake icing because of the cream cheese, it’s so rich and creamy…. ahhh! This is no exception
And yes, another finger mark…
I don’t ever remember having these on Carrot Cake before but I’ll roll with this!
Besides, they taste really good!
So now what?
I want to start this off by saying I’m a rebel. This recipe has two Carrot Cakes and you can do two separate cakes or you can be like me and try to make one giant layer cake
(I’d suggest following the recipe – however mine was still quite delicious!)
So you start out by cutting this in half (meaning two circles not two half moons)
Then you spread the Carrot Cake icing over the layer of Carrot Cake
Also, you have the option of using a piping bag or just spreading the icing. Just pipe it! It gets a bit crumbly from the spreading motion. If you need a piping bag all you have to do is put the icing in a ziploc bag and squeeze all of it into a corner and then cut the tip – voila!
The instructions advise you to put the two halves of cake together and then add the Buttercream Icing to the top. Not I, I took the second cake and cut that in half as well, added it to this existing cake and made a very large Carrot Cake!
As you can see it can get a little crumbly but it still tastes amazing!
This is the final product with the Krunchies on top and the Buttercream Icing
And the reason I do this stuff….
These little goofballs
Belle enjoying her cake!
So in summary
Doorstep Desserts offers something few subscriptions have. A fun experience that almost anyone could enjoy. These kits are simple enough that I can do them with my daughter but I could also have my wise cook of a Grandmother over to do these together too! I love that the food is such a great quality as well, everything was amazing as far as flavor goes. Often times with boxes where there’s a unique experience involved the quality of the items is lost and that just isn’t the case with Doorstep Desserts. I think this is a great way to get everyone involved in a part of the meal and a great way to bond with family and friends! This box makes an excellent addition to any of your holiday festivities!
As far as box economy we think that a weekly kit of $18, a biweekly kit of $20, and a monthly kit of $22 aren’t bad at all but don’t forget – use code Asheli and you’ll get 75% off your first kit!
