­ Duncan Hines Signature Blue and Pink Velvet Cake Mixes - so many baking options! #recipe #sponsored

Duncan Hines has a new line of Pink and Blue Velvet cake mixes that are a surprisingly easy and perfect way for you to bake up magic moments for the special prince/princesses in their life.

Duncan Hines new Pink and Blue Velvet cake mixes are fun and easy, taking the science out of baking, so Moms and Dads can now bake colorful birthday/special occasion cakes at home without the hassle of adding food coloring and gels! Kids will also have a blast baking up cake pops or cakies in these bright colors.  

Blue Velvet Whoopie Pies
1 box Signature Blue Velvet Cake Mix
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
3 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/3 cup water

1 stick of butter
2-3 cups powdered sugar

Baking Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine cake mix, flour, eggs, vegetable oil and water in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly blended.
  • Use a teaspoon and scoop batter onto cookie sheet. Put no more than 12-15 per sheet, as the batter will spread.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Let cool completely and set aside.
Beat together butter with one cup of powdered sugar.  Continue to add sugar till you get the flavor/consistency you desire.   I added a dash of vanilla as well.  Spread 1 teaspoon of frosting on the flat sides of half of the  whoopie pies and top with remaining pies.   If you do not want to make a filling, then pick up a jar of Duncan Hines instead!
