Cherrybrook Kitchen

A dear friend was coming over for lunch so that we could celebrate her birthday. I decided to try these Cherrybrook Kitchen baking mixes I brought home from California.

It's a dairy free, egg free, and nut free line of baking mixes. We read through the ingredient list just to find out exactly what was inside the box. We nodded in agreement recognizing each item and that we actually had it stocked in our own kitchens.

And, the cupcakes were delicious! Even my finicky daughter, who often shuns sweets, thought these were the absolute bomb. Hey, I felt good serving one of these for dessert after a healthy meal was eaten, and she thought the exchange was good, too. I used the chocolate cake and chocolate frosting mixes. Too bad they don't sell this at our Co-op, but looking at the Cherrybook store finder, I see that Fred Meyer does. As a mom, these mixes are the perfect solution for classroom treats, which need to accommodate food allergies.

We made another snowman! Even though most of the snow is melted by now, we've had more this year than in the recent past. This is such good news!

Anyone else have good news to share? I'd love to read your answers to this question posed recently by Cafe VegNews.

Hi Vicki!

I've been wondering about that line of cake mixes. Good to know that they are worth buying. The cupcakes look picture perfect!

I love the snowman. For the 6 years we lived in Boise, we barely had snow (unless we went to Bogus). Good to know it's coming back.

Those cupcakes are so colorful and pretty! I have also tried the cherrybrook kitchen cupcakes and was pleased. I actually saw them at our regular grocery store, kroger, (I usually buy them at whole foods) the other day!
Cute snowman :-)

While I have never tried Cherrybrook Kitchen mixes I have seen them about. Thanks for the review! I will have to pick some up to try.

But I must say, I so envy your cupcake liners. Those are way cool. I seem to always be buying fun liners but they are all very holiday centric, so you end up with two unopened packs of Halloween papers in January. Lovely to see some basic fun ones out there!

I love Cherrybrook Kitchen. The brownie mix is my favorite. I had difficulties with the sugar cookie one, but all the rest have been wonderful. Your little ones are adorable!
