Treat yourself during this hectic time of year with Duncan Hines New Perfect Size Cake Mixes

The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family.”

With the holidays fast approaching, our calendars are jam-packed with activities like school conferences, choir concerts, holiday parties for work, family, friends and more! It's hard to find a moment to ourselves to relax and unwind - just the three of us!

Duncan Hines has the “Perfect Size” cake to fit any occasion and your hectic schedule. These great-tasting cakes, with a serving size of two to four, are perfect for a few people when a full-size cake is too much (too many pans to clean, too much cake left over). Each Perfect Size cake comes with a cake mix, frosting mix and a disposable 6-inch round pan. Prep to yummy in approximately 45 minutes!

Duncan Hines has created Perfect Size cakes in five deliciously indulgent favors:
  • Chocolate Lover’s – chocolate cake with chocolate frosting
  • Red Velvet Dream – red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting
  • Lemon Bliss – lemon cake with lemon frosting
  • Strawberries and Cream – strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting
  • Golden Fudge – golden cake with chocolate fudge frosting

Our Thoughts:

I loved the portion size on these cakes - one fluffy layer of cake with the perfect amount of frosting. No waste and no overindulgence! The cake was easy to prepare (I let Rose take the lead on it to teach her about planning ahead and following directions). Both the cake and frosting call for butter and I have to say we actually enjoyed the fluffy texture and decadent taste of the cake and frosting more than using vegetable oil as called for in other cake mixes. Since my husband and I have been trying to maintain healthier lifestyles, the Perfect Size cake from Duncan Hines is a good fit for our family. We are able to indulge our cravings or our sweet tooth without overdoing it! I can see using these cake mixes for many reasons such as surprising a teacher at school, a neighborly gesture, a thank you to someone....and many more ideas! 

Duncan Hines has a huge line of products that we love and the Perfect Size Cake Mixes are a great fit for the brand. We also love their brownies and pineapple cake mix (I use it for all my pineapple upside down cakes). You can find Perfect Size Cake Mixes at major grocery stores and retailers nationwide in addition to more of Duncan Hines products. Check out their website for tons of recipes and ideas for this holiday season like their festive Jingle Bells cupcakes!

  1. I love that these are the perfect size. I can say that sometimes you just want cake but not a full party size. Such a good idea!

  2. It's usually just my husband, myself and 2 grandsons here. And I love warm cake, so these are the perfect desserts after dinner.

    These are great -- I really like the smaller size. The only problem is, I would probably be tempted to eat the whole thing myslef.
