Received my Innocent Baker Box this afternoon! Went out to get the ingredients I needed as soon as I got it in the mail!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I collaborated with them this month and they sent me the box in return for posts on all my social media and here on my blog/website. When I opened the box, they had even written me a card saying they were excited to collaborate with me and looked forward to more in the future!
For February, the product was Red Velvet Donuts with a Dark Chocolate Glaze and Salted Caramel Drizzle. It was so easy to make! All the ingredients they sent were pre-measured to make it simple. They even included a donut pan and a metal whisk to keep!
Now I normally don’t enjoy red velvet anything. I find that the taste of the red food colouring comes through too much and ruins it. However, because they used beet root powder for these donuts, I actually enjoyed them! You don’t get the taste of the food colouring, but you also don’t get the taste of beet. I love being able to use natural products as a dye for baking. The best part is that they used high quality ingredients in the boxes too. The caramel and chocolate were Callebaut which is a great product.
I had so much fun making these and posting about it on social media. I think this has made me want to do more things like this. Bake new things and post about the process on Instagram is super fun and a great way of engaging with your followers! I hope you all can take a look at my Intagram and see what I’m talking about 🙂
If you have any suggestions on what I should bake next, let me know!
