If you love baking but do not want to go shopping at a crowded supermarket, do not want to waste the excess of ingredients and to save time on preparation, Red Velvet is certainly for you. The concept is simple: they propose various desserts, from molten chocolate cake to chocolate pot de crime or tiramisu, and will deliver the recipe with all the ingredients to your door. And do not worry: refrigerated items are kept with icy packs in a pouch.

Recipes have different levels: easy, moderate and advanced. I decided to try the olive oil cake, that was for an advanced level. I admit that the only thing I would consider advanced was the blood orange frosting that did not really look like the photo and was a bit too sweet...

The rest was fairly easy and I loved the fact that I did not have to buy anything and that everything was measured, saving me some time. When I see for instance how much blood orange juice they provided, I am glad I did not need to squeeze it on my own! The instructions were simple and, understandably, they did not write the quantities on it, quantities that you can measure if you really want. I did not. 

The result was fantastic (it looked good and tasted very good) and know that I do not bake that much. In fact, it made me want to bake more!
