Tips

Worked Well

Worked Well

When I used the Red Velvet cake mix, I used 1/2 cup of sour cream, and mixed it with enough (real dairy) half and half to equal 11/4 cups to replace the water. I also added two extra TBS of cocoa powder, and one half TBS of vinegar. Imade cupcakes and they turned out wonderful!


Mixing in Unique Flavors

Mixing in Unique Flavors

It's always fun to throw in your own personal creative flair when you're baking with Duncan Hines. To customize cupcakes: add cinnamon and cayenne pepper into chocolate cupcake batter and frosting for a Mexican Cinnamon Chili Cupcake. For an Asian flavor, substitute sesame oil for vegetable oil in your cake mix and add powdered wasabi and ground ginger to your frosting -- you'll have a Wasabi Ginger Cupcake! To enhance Lemon Cupcakes, cut out a cone-shaped piece from the center of your cupcake and fill it with lemon curd, then frost with lemon cheesecake frosting.
