The Limited Edition Cook’s Box from Sweet Reads Box: Baking Day 🇨🇦

I received The Cook’s Box from Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

The limited edition Valentine’s Box sold out within hours of its release Sunday (!) but more stand-alone boxes are coming soon.
