As always Miranda is such a delight. I requested the cookies be packaged 2/pk and she obliged without hesitation. The chocolate chip cookies were so delicious!! Thank you Miranda!

Miranda not only provided a high-quality, delicious product that everyone at my son and daughter-in-law's wedding shower loved, she also provided outstanding customer service and made the whole process easy. Everyone loved the cookies and brownies, and since I had them individually wrapped, everyone was able to take any extra treats home. Thank you, Miranda!

From the very beginning I was impressed with Ditch the Mix! Very professional, I got a same day order, and to top it off pickup was a breeze and then I get home to the most beautifully wrapped, gooey, and delicious brownies. The owner even personalized the business card with my name inside which seems small but I appreciated as well as my brownies being wrapped like a decadent present! Awesome customer service, awesome presentation, and a price you can’t argue with! I will be ordering again when my sweet tooth comes back!

Everything from the ordering process to pick up was so easy! My order was received and ready to pick up just two days later. And of course, each brownie in the variety box I ordered was perfection. Fudgy, moist, unique flavors, absolutely yummy. I’m trying to pace myself before ordering another box!! Lol

My wife and I got married on Valentine’s Day last year (2021), so I wanted to surprise her with a cake similar to what we ate on our wedding day.

I was looking for Columbus Ohio based bakers because we were attending Ohayocon that weekend.

On Saturday, the day I was scheduled to pickup the cake, my time schedule for pickup changed based on costume changes and convenience. Miranda, the baker, accommodated my schedule with flexibility, consideration, professionalism, and allowed my morning pickup of the buttercream brownie cake.

My wife showed off the cake on her Instagram , with the cakes special message of “Happy 1st Anniversary “.

We did not eat the cake until today, Feb. 14, 2022. I was pleasantly surprised that there were two layers of chocalate and frosting within the cake…it felt like a wonderful surprise within an already wonderful surprise. Warmed up, the cake is super delicious and I enjoyed the added chocalate chip bits inside.
