Duncan Hines Complete Cake Mix Magic Cookbook Review

Print Friendly and PDF

Do you love to bake?  My whole family loves to bake and sometimes we all get together to bake.  For this review I received one copy of the Duncan Hines Complete Cake Mix Magic.   I love cake and cupcakes, so this cookbook was an awesome cookbook to review!  I have made many of the recipes and they are very delicious!  My favorite so far is the Pineapple Coconut Dream Bars!  My family has loved many of the recipes, especially the Pina Colada Cake, Butterscotch Swirl and the Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake.  The recipes are easy and quick to make.  I would recommend the Duncan Hines Complete Cake Mix Magic Cookbook!
