Earlier this week, I posted the Key Lime Pie Cupcakes recipe which used the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations. Today, I want to give you an overall review of the new product from Duncan Hines since I received free samples of it.
Duncan Hines Frosting Creations
The new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations is actually two separate products. There’s the base can of frosting and then there’s the flavoring packet. So, you can purchase the frosting and choose from a variety of flavors to go along with the delicious Duncan Hines frosting you are used to. They seem to always have different flavors whenever I look at them in the store. I was sent some more seasonally appropriate flavors: key lime pie (used in the recipe above), fruit punch (shown in this post), peaches and creme, and pink lemonade. All of the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations allow you to create a more intense flavor in a dessert or put a spin on something classic (like regular yellow cupcakes).
You may be concerned that the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations is difficult to use. However, if you look at this series of photos, you can see just how easy it is to use. You simply get both the frosting and flavoring. Then, you open up the frosting and stick a knife in the middle of it to create a hole for the flavoring. Then, you tear open the packet of flavor and (carefully) pour it into the frosting. Finally, you use the knife to stir and combine the two. Finally, you put it on your dessert.
I love how easy the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations make it to add new flavors to my desserts. I am also interested in trying the other flavors that sound delicious. Duncan Hines has once again created a great product for everyone… I think serious bakers could use it just as easily as novice bakers. So, what do you think of the new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations? Have you tried them yet?
