Baking Instructions

  5. Pour pack of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Cotton Candy Flavor Mix into can of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter. Stir until evenly blended.
  6. Melt the Cotton Candy frosting you just created in the microwave in 5-second bursts until just melted enough to pour as a thick glaze.
  7. Pour over top of cake. Let frosting set for up to 10 minutes and serve.

Moister spice cake

Moister spice cake

My maternal great-grandmother LOVED to bake and one of her favorite cakes to bake was a spice cake. People always asked her how she would get her cake to be so moist, She wouldn't tell her secret, but I know it. If you are looking for a way to make your spice cakes more moist, just add a half a cup of water to the batter when mixing. If you decide you want to freeze the cake for a month or so, and then take it out of the freezer to thaw, it will remain moist when you are ready to cut it
