If you’re a fan of meal delivery kits (think Blue Apron and HelloFresh), just wait until you hear what has hit the NYC market: a dessert kit! Yes indeed, whipping up a gourmet dessert in your tiny little NYC kitchen just got possible!
Launched in the Fall of 2015, Red Velvet NYC is a full-service baking experience, delivering everything you need to create a high-end dessert at home. From the pre-measured ingredients to easy-to-follow recipes, you’ll be pleased as punch when you receive your temperature-controlled, hand-packed signature box, delivered straight to your door. I LOVE this because it means you don’t have to buy expensive baking ingredients that will take up precious room in your cabinets, and will go bad before you ever have a chance to use it all. Yay for reducing waste and eliminating waiting in line at Whole Foods!
Red Velvet NYC offers over 20 different sumptuous desserts for both novice and expert bakers. There are birthday-party winners like Nutella cupcakes and dinner party standouts like individual crèmes caramel and molten chocolate cakes. Selections cover every occasion, whether it’s an anniversary celebration, holiday get-together, or a weeknight sweet tooth. I made these celebration cupcakes to celebrate my hubby’s first Father’s Day, and they were a huge hit! The taste rivaled that of my favorite NYC cupcake shop (Sugar Sweet Sunshine, I’m talking to you!), and it was all the more special because I baked them myself…with lots and lots of love added, of course!
Along with being a great service for special occasions, I think Red Velvet NYC would be a fabulous addition to any girls’ night in or date night…a great way to shake up the ol’ Netflix and chill option, right? Especially considering baking classes at any host of NYC kitchens can set you back $100 a pop on average, the fact that one dessert kit from Red Velvet is priced at $20-$36 is a fantastic deal. The dessert kit would also be a really delicious surprise for someone who needs a little pick-me-up, as I think it’s pretty much impossible not to smile when baking;-) The company currently delivers to the East Coast and Mid-West, so you can easily deliver smiles outside of the city, too. Thank you, Red Velvet NYC, for making baking a whole lot sweeter!
