New Zealand cake-maker Jordan Rondel, aka, ‘The Caker’ has just collabed with Chrissy Teigen to make a cake in a box, and it must be absolutely a-maz-ing because it has already sold out in the US.
Chrissy posted to Instagram to announce the release of the cake boxes with the caption: "I loooooove carrot cake - so much so that it was even my wedding cake! So to celebrate John and I's (me and john's?) 9th anniversary this year, I thought it would be fun to collab with none other than @TheCaker!”
She continued, “you guys will love our salty caramel spin on this classic beauty. You will truly NOT believe it is from a box.”
How delicious does that look?
The make-it-yourself cake was inspired by Chrissy’s iconic four-tiered carrot cake from her and hubby John Legend’s wedding cake.
People loved the idea of the boxed cake so much that within hours of posting the announcement, the cake kit has already sold out US-wide on Cravingsbychrissyteigen.com.
But don’t let that stop you eager Kiwis from getting your hands on some. Word has it that the kit is available for preorder from thecaker.co.nz.
In the meantime, we have some tips and tricks on how to make the perfect cake from 'The Caker', herself.
Our fave tip from Jordan is that “you always want the oven to be set to fan-bake mode so that there is an even distribution of heat. Always preheat your oven well in advance – usually about 20 minutes.”
“Really get to know your oven. Some ovens are hotter than others, some cook more from the top, bottom, left or right,” she continued, adding, “The easiest ways to know if your cake is done are if it's golden in colour, springy to the touch and if a skewer comes out clean when stuck in the centre.”
And of course, “It is important to not open the oven during the first 10–15 minutes of baking time because this is the most crucial period for the oven temperature to be constant.”
Looks like we will need to keep these in mind when it comes to baking the new kit, that is if we can get our sticky little fingers on a box!
