Yes! We only provide baking boxes with gluten free ingredients. We don’t make any other boxes other than gluten free ones as that would lead to cross contamination.
We use only gluten free ingredients including specialist gluten free flours, both plain and self raising, gluten free baking powders, spices and occasionally Xanthan Gum (that is already in most GF self raising flour).
Any cake decorations or sweets provided in boxes will always be free from gluten.
Yes, absolutely. Let us tell you why. The founder of the company has a child with Coeliacs. Since their diagnosis, it has become her mission to ensure that no child or adult diagnosed with coeliacs is excluded from ‘normal’ everyday opportunities or celebrations.
They understand more than most what its like for a coeliac to be excluded, and that it is more than just about cutting out the gluten in a product that a coeliac can’t tolerate.
- minimising risk of all cross contamination
- using items free from barley, rye, oats* and wheat.
- Oats* when used in ingredients will be specifically gluten free oats.
*Oats are naturally gluten free, they contain a protein called Avenin which a coeliac’s body may interpret as gluten. Any oats used in our products are clearly marked and specifically gluten free oats.
Yes, we only use gluten free ingredients – free from barley, rye, oats* and wheat. We don’t use Codex wheat or deglutenised wheat.
Yes, we have a range of items that we will feature to begin baking with the basics including fairy cakes, biscuits and savoury items. Let us know if you have any further suggestions.
You can use whichever dairy produce you prefer that suits your dietary requirements. In all recipes we use block dairy butter, sunflower oil and/or dairy milk as a standard.
We test recipes with an alternative plant based block ‘butter’ (Stork or Flora), my personal preference is for Flora plant butter in a block in conjunction with soya milk to see how the recipes behave.
Each recipe should work, however, the results such as texture & taste may vary.
The baking boxes and recipes are popular for any age wanting to learn the fun in baking and decorating. The ideal ages for our boxes will be 4-12yrs old with the relevant supervision.
We have 2 Baking Kit options.
Our Ultimate Baking Kit is £22.50 per month on a month by month basis which can be cancelled at any time and includes postage. Our 12 month subscriptions are discounted which is equivalent to a free box over the 12 month period. They may be cancelled at anytime however this directly refers to the renewal term and not your full commitment term as per your subscription agreement.
Our Simple Baking Kit is £15.99 per month on a month by month basis which can be cancelled at any time and includes postage. Our 12 month subscriptions are discounted which is equivalent to a free box over the 12 month period excluding postage.

Each month the kit will include all the dry ingredients to create a fun bake be it savoury or sweet. In the note to the child we are advising what is in the next box and the ingredients you’ll need.
As well as the dry GF ingredients, your child receives a colour recipe card with instructions & pictures to follow, a welcome note, fun facts and learning activity. The fun facts are based on a UK seasonal fruit or vegetable. Not forgetting the ‘I made this’ pop up card. Kits that are full of fun, learning and with tasty treats to make.
The Simple Baking Kits are designed to fit through your letterbox and for you to supply & use your cupcake cases or cookie cutters that you already have at home.
The Ultimate Baking Kits are designed to include everything you need in your box – including cupcake cases, cookie cutters, kitchen utensils as needed for the bakes.
