Duncan Hines Perfect Cake: Great For Smaller Families

Duncan Hines Perfect Cake Idea

I know there are times when I just don’t have the energy or time to make a cake from scratch. How about you? Then you are stuck baking this huge cake when you might only have two to three people in the home. I know I am always throwing away what we don’t eat or running around giving the remainder to the neighbors. What a pain in the butt! 

Today I had the chance to check out the new Perfect Size from Duncan Hines. I have always enjoyed Duncan Hines cakes because they are moist and always come out perfect. The new Perfect Size has included a 6-inch disposable cake pan, frosting and of course, the mix. Everything you need to make a great cake for your family.

Making the cake is super easy! All you need is one egg, 1/4 cup water and two tablespoons of butter (softened). Once everything is combined just mix and beat for 3 minutes until smooth and put the batter in the ready to use pan included. I just love how they included a pan, and that is one less dish you need to clean up.

To make the frosting, you will need a teaspoon of water and four tablespoons of butter again softened. Put in the frosting mix and beat for 2 minutes. I honestly never really like store bought frosting it always has a strange flavor and consistency, but the frosting included in the Golden Fudge was spot on. If you want a bit more creamy consistency, you can add another 1/2 a teaspoon of water. 

When I took the pan out of the over I was surprised how quickly it cooled off and the pan itself was not super hot so you don’t have to worry about little fingers! To remove the cake simply push the button at the bottom (the white circle that has the writing) and this releases the cake onto the plate or dish you would like to use.

Everything turned out wonderful, and I have dessert ready for my husband and I to enjoy tonight, without all the waste that we normally would have. I am obsessed with chocolate drizzle this week, so I added Strawberries and chocolate sauce to jazz it up a bit.

The serving per container is about five, so you really could get five pieces out of this tiny delicious goodie! I would recommend checking these out. They come in a variety of flavors for your family to enjoy including Chocolate Lovers, Lemon Bliss, Strawberries & Creme and Red Velvet Dream. YUMMY!! You can find these at most supermarkets and online through a google search.
