I love cake mix!  Just ask Frank.  We have a LOT of cake mix in our kitchen – from Devil’s Food to Chocolate Fudge to Yellow to Rainbow Chip.  I was recently introduced to Duncan Hines® Limited Edition Spring Velvets™ Cake Mix – perfect for the upcoming Easter holiday!  Duncan Hines® Limited Edition Spring Velvets™ Cake Mix is a part of Duncan Hines‘ new velvets line – the first in the baking aisle to extend velvet cake, beyond the traditional red velvet.

The Duncan Hines® Limited Edition Spring Velvets™ Cake Mix included one pouch of Pink Velvet cake mix and one pouch of Yellow Velvet cake mix.  All I had to do was add softened butter, water and eggs and then mix in my Kitchen Aid Mixer.  Super easy!  Duncan Hines® Limited Edition Spring Velvets™ delivers surprisingly easy inspiration to take desserts “beyond the box” with simple recipes such as the Spring Velvets Checkerboard Cake and Bundt Cake.  I created a PEEP-A-BOO Easter Cupcake with my Duncan Hines® Limited Edition Spring Velvets™ Cake Mix.

    That looks so pretty! I’m pretty sure even if I made this step by step it wouldn’t look as pretty as you made it. It would still taste good though 🙂
