I pride myself of being a voracious explorer of food. The motto in our home set in stone is “Try everything at least twice before you form an opinion”. That being said, like Ms. Child I believe “You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” Even though I am a firm believer of cooking from scratch, once in a while a product comes along which deserves the recognition and laurels…
I am happy to endorse like-minded foodies and co-founders of Ready.Set.Cupcake Chef Carolyn and hospitality veteran Leslie with their brilliant product and wish them great success in their new venture.
Ready.Set.Cupcake!, the innovative line from Chef Carolyn Broome Shulevitz and hospitality veteran Leslie Kaplan, is the first all-natural, gourmet, no mix and no mess frozen cake batters and buttercream frosting. Ready.Set.Cupcake! is “all-in-one” made with all natural ingredients, no trans fats or hydrogenated oils, and includes a separate line of GFCO certified gluten-free, dairy free and kosher cake batter.
Cupcakes is a universally liked dessert appeasing to all ages. Something about the super moist goodness topped with luscious frosting is almost always swoon-worthy, causing persons of any age to squeal in delight. Now only if we could eat them without making a mess in your kitchen. Well, here is the solution.
The Chocolate Cupcake with Buttercream Frosting was moist with the right amount of sweetness. Effort less baking with no mess, it’s bound to be a crowd pleaser. An added bonus is that it is so simple that even your children can partake in creating these indulgent mini bites. My only quibble being that the chocolate flavor was a tad subdued for chocoholics. Judging by appearance it self you anticipate a rich and dense chocolate flavor but that is not the case.
Now what impressed me the most was there Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes. If you didn’t tell your guests, they might never know of its wheat-free status. Moist and tender with a good amount of chocolate flavor, it will put your everyday cupcakes made from scratch to shame.
Ready.Set.Cupcake! is a first-in-category creation – the first frozen, all natural, no mix and no mess cake batter and butter cream frosting. The batters and frostings are sold separately and come ready-to-bake with a professional pastry bag or frosting tip, and can also bake 6″ inch cakes, madeleines and whoopie pies. Simply put, they deliver professional looking, “Pinterest-esque” desserts in minutes. The preparation is simple enough for the baking novice and a fun activity for children, as the line lends itself to creative additions of flavored extracts, nut butters and fresh fruit.
Ready.Set.Cupcake! is available in the freezer in all Whole Foods Market Florida stores and in Epicure Market in Miami Beach. For more information and recipes, visit their website or connect with them via Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
