Duncan Hines Decadent Cake and Glaze Review

Cake. What can I say about cake? Well, I will say it is the perfect food day or night, any season and it is something I can eat all day. So when I got the opportunity to review some of the new Duncan Hines® Decadent Cake line through the Family Review Network, I was in cake heaven!!

Duncan Hines is a brand I have used in the past and always find that Duncan Hines makes great quality products. They have been in business for 60 years so that counts for something. The new line includes cake mixes and Glazes.

I was sent the Duncan Hines Decadent Triple Chocolate Cake with real chocolate chunks and rich fudge and Duncan Hines Decadent Apple Caramel cake with real apples and rich caramel. Both cakes contain zero grams of trans fat and NO hydrogenated oils. They are available in cake baking section of supermarkets nationwide for about $2.99 a box. I did not receive a sample of the glazes but I decided to go buy the chocolate glaze so I could use it on the Triple Chocolate Cake I was going to bake.

The mix comes with regular cake mix and then an extra packet of fudge and chocolate chunks. You mix the extra batter with water and then add it to the cake mix when it's in the cake pan. I decided to make a bundt cake and it was easy to make.

The cake came out fantastic. It was rich and moist. The extra added bonus was in the middle of the cake was rich fudge and bits of the chocolate chunks. Yummo! Even hubby liked it and he doesn't usually like cake. I was glad I bought the glaze because it was a perfect companion to the Duncan Hines cake. It was sweet but not heavy like frosting. And it was rich as well. Very delicious. I would definitely try the glaze again.

I totally recommend the Duncan Hines Decadent cakes and glazes (well, at least the chocolate one). They are so tasty and make for a delicious dessert!

  1. I saw those in Walmart Friday night, but didn't buy any just yet! Now, I'm tempted!
