Dolly Parton is an icon in the country music industry, a well-known actress, and beloved humanitarian. Now, she looks to tackle the baking industry with her collection of Duncan Hines cake mixes and icing flavors. Known as the “Queen of Country,” Dolly now looks to inherit the title, “Queen of Cakes.”

Childhood Inspiration

Before Dolly was world-famous for her beautiful, soulful country music and charming nature on the big screen, she was one of 12 children who grew up in the mountains of Tennessee. Life in the south meant delicious cakes baked by her singing mother in the kitchen. Inspired by childhood nostalgia, Dolly has partnered with Duncan Hines to bring that southern charm back to the present. While her life was difficult growing up, she always believed in rising above her circumstances and making the best of every situation.

In the announcement of the new Duncan Hines collection, Dolly said, “I always loved to cook, and growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking.” Dolly is taking her joy of cooking, the South, and family and bringing it to families worldwide with her newest endeavour.

Southern Style Cakes

Dolly’s charm extends fully into this baking collection, which features Southern classics like coconut and banana- cake mix flavors that inspire more than just chocolate and vanilla- and bring the taste of Southern hospitality right to your kitchen. Creamy buttercream and chocolate frosting round out the delicious collection. 

Unlike other Duncan Hines cakes that require a simple mix of eggs, water, and oil, Dolly’s cake mixes include a home-grown recipe from the legend herself. The addition of milk, coconut flakes, and butter with the coconut cake mix brings the original Duncan Hines recipe to a new level. The banana cake mix includes the additions of vanilla pudding, vanilla wafers, and bananas for an authentic Southern banana cake.

Dolly Parton’s Collection Availability

Since your mouth is watering, you probably wonder where you can get this delicious new Duncan Hines product. Dolly’s signature collection of cake mixes and icing flavors is available online for a limited time via the Duncan Hines website and delivered straight to your door. 

The baking set goes for $40 and includes cake mixes, icing, a spatula, a tea towel, recipes, and a letter from Dolly, herself. If you miss buying it online due to its popularity, don’t stress. Dolly’s collection of cakes mixes and icings will be available for purchase in stores starting in March 2022. Simply visit any local grocery store that sells Duncan Hines and pick up a taste of Southern charm inspired by the one and only Dolly Parton.
