One of the best things about spring and summer is saying good bye to the dreary winter and saying hello to the beautiful colors. Now you can even have those beautiful colors in your desserts. Duncan Hines has introduced a new line of signature cake mixes including Blue Velvet, Spring Velvet and Pink Velvet.
As soon as we received the mixes my daughter insisted on starting to bake, which she loves to do. She choose to make a cake with the Spring Velvet. The directions were simple to follow and came out tasting great. I think it surprised everyone when I cut into the cake and there were two different colors. No one could believe that they came from one box of cake mix. The cake had a great taste to it and was a hit with everyone who tried it, especially my daughter.
Blue Velvet and Pink Velvet also tasted great. Finally, you can get creative with your cakes without having to do anything but put it in the oven. No food coloring, dyes or gels that make a mess and never come out like you wanted it to. The blue and pink are perfect for little one’s birthday parties and the now popular gender reveal parties. They are great for making cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, short cakes, bundt cakes and so many more. You will never want to switch back to the boring white and chocolate mixes again. You can find a ton ofto turn your box of mix into a baked masterpiece.
We also received the new Salted Caramel Brownie Mix. We got our package late one night and my husband by all means wanted me to bake these brownies at 11:00 at night. His mouth was watering just looking at the boxes. He fell in love with these brownies. The salted caramel gives the brownies that extra rich flavor and the brownies themselves were mouthwatering. There are actually two different directions on the box, one for cake like brownies and one for more traditional brownies. We stuck with the cake like brownies and they were delicious.
