Duncan Hines, a brand of Conagra Brands, has launched a new line of Southern-inspired desserts with Grammy Award-winning artist and philanthropist, Dolly Parton. The new line includes cake mixes and frostings inspired by some of Dolly's favorite family recipes like Coconut Cake and Banana Puddin' Cake.
“I have always loved to cook and, growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking," says Parton. "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."
To introduce the partnership, Duncan Hines is offering the limited-edition Dolly Parton's Baking Collection on Shop.duncanhines.com, while supplies last. The special collection gives Dolly fans a chance to try her new line of cake mixes and frostings, which won't hit store shelves nationwide until spring. The collection includes:
Dolly Parton's Southern Style Coconut Flavored Cake Mix
Dolly Parton's Southern Style Banana Flavored Cake Mix
Dolly Parton's Creamy Buttercream Frosting
Dolly Parton's Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Collectible tea towel & spatula
Custom recipe cards
Beginning in March, the Duncan Hines Dolly Parton's cake mixes and frostings will be available in the baking section of grocery stores and mass retailers.
"Duncan Hines is beyond thrilled to partner with Dolly Parton, one of the most revered and beloved women in the world, on a new line of products that are steeped in Southern comfort and inspired by Dolly's family recipes," says Audrey Ingersoll, brand director, Duncan Hines.
