Product Review: Small Duncan Hines Cakes

The other week when mom and I went grocery shopping, she noticed that Acme sells the Duncan Hines cakes in a small serving. Where a bigger cake would feed 8-12 people, this cake feeds 4-5 people. It's a brilliant idea: Duncan Hines combines the cake mix, frosting mix, and the small cake pan in a package that was about $3. Mom saw it advertised in magazines, but this was our first time seeing the physical product. We decided to buy two: vanilla cake with chocolate frosting and red velvet cake.

I'm not a big fan of red velvet cake and because my sweet tooth was craving a moist vanilla cake with gooey chocolate frosting, I made the vanilla cake. I took out the box and read the instructions. East enough.

I then mixed the cake with one egg, 2 tablespoons of softened butter, and 1/4 cup of water. I put it into the oven for 38 minutes like the box suggested. As the cake was baking it reminded me of Nan's strawberry shortcake she made each year for her birthday. Nan was a religious Duncan Hines cake mix user. Whenever she made her cake, her kitchen always smelled vanilla-y. I always loved that smell and Sunday night reminded me of those precious memories.

I let the cake cool, mixed the icing, and after the cake was cooled... I frosted the cake. Both mom and I enjoyed the cake. I would recommend this product. It's great because it serves a small amount of people and you don't have to worry about a lot of left overs.
