When you’re bakin’ with Dolly Parton, you drop the “g” to make it southern-style. The Smoky Mountain Songbird is also dropping a new line of cake mixes and frostings in a recently announced collaboration with Duncan Hines, and fans are excited to get a little bit country in their kitchens (per PR Newswire).
According to The Kitchn, the cake mixes and buttercream frostings are just as strong in flavor as Parton is in attitude and come in equally flamboyant packaging. We would expect no less from a Dolly-inspired dessert mix. Bakers who want to feel even closer to their favorite southern icon can recreate the sweet treats from the personal recipes on the back of the box. It takes more time and ingredients but is said to be worth the extra effort as it makes your box cake mix taste homemade.
The mixes and frostings will hit store shelves in March, but for fans who just can’t wait to try Dolly’s banana cake, a limited edition baking set is available on the Duncan Hines website. The Dolly Parton Baking Collection includes cake mixes, frostings, a spatula, a tea towel, and recipe cards. It is available on January 26 for those who want to be the first to try out Dolly Parton’s southern-style dessert faves.
