Cotton Candy Peppermint Blast

Lorin Cook Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

The fabulous Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations, mixed with a hint of peppermint flavored Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake makes a great combination at any event. The tie dye colors really pop when paired with the Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting. Jazz it up by plating it on a "pillow" of cotton candy to intensify the effect!! It's a real BLAST of flavor!!

Tips

Italian Love Cake

Italian Love Cake

Sorry, have a question ... not a tip. I've an old recipe using Duncan HInes Marble Cake. However the recipe calls for the "no oil recipe on box"....it is no longer given...just substiuting apple sauce instead. This doesn't work for this cake. The cake is called Italian Love Cake (& I'd share it if I can re-create it). A DH Marble Cake Mix is used and then a ricotta cheese mixture is added. Need to use the original no oil recipe on the marble cake mix box...help please! thanks a bunch!


Easy Pan Grease

Easy Pan Grease

Easy to make Pan grease for cakes guaranteed not to stick! In your mixer blend equal amounts of flour, shortening and cooking oil. Mix until well blended. Store in a covered container in the fridge. To use, spread a thin layer on your pan with a pastry brush. Wipe the brush clean with a paper towel and store in the fridge with the pan grease. No need to wash it every time it's used. This is cheaper than using non stick sprays and easier to use than buttering and flouring pans.
