Dolly Parton just celebrated her 76th birthday, so it only seems fitting that the legendary singer would celebrate with cake! In a partnership we never saw coming, Parton has teamed up with Duncan Hines to release baking products reminiscent of her southern upbringing.
According to Thrillist, Parton name and face will be on boxes of Duncan Hines Southern-Style Coconut-Flavored Cake Mix, a Southern-Style Banana-Flavored Cake Mix, Creamy Buttercream Frosting, and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
“I have always loved to cook, and, growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom-and-Pop kind of cooking,” said Dolly Parton said of the partnership. “I am excited to launch my own line of cake mixes and frostings with Duncan Hines, bringing that sweet, Southern-style baking experience I enjoy to others.”
In March, the cake mixes and frosting will be available at grocery stores. But, if you want the full Dolly Parton cake treatment, click on the Duncan Hines website starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 26 to get your hands on Dolly’s Baking Collection! The kit, of which there will be a limited number, will sell for $40 and will include both flavors of cake mix and frosting, a letter from Dolly herself, a tea towel and a spatula.
As if the news couldn’t get any more exciting, a rep for Duncan Hines told Thrillest that there is more to come from their partnership with Dolly. So, it’s likely that more flavors of cake and frosting will be available in the future. YAY!
What cake and frosting flavors would you like to see? I’m thinking a Pink Velvet with strawberry frosting would be amazing….and so very pink and Dolly! Heck, they could even throw in some edible rhinestone sprinkles to put it over the top.
