*I didn't receive the carrot cake mix, but this picture was so pretty and professional looking that I wanted to use it here*
I can't tell you how excited I was to receive these in the mail to review! It was right up my ally, unfortunately I had just started Weight Watchers a few weeks earlier, so I had to wait and try them when I had enough points to cover my "treat". Of course I went for the Chocolate cake first :) I hadn't really eaten anything sweet in a month, so I was really excited to try this, sadly, it just didn't taste that good to me. Maybe I've become spoiled by my homemade death by chocolate cake, but this chocolate cake tasted like it came from a mix and just didn't taste all that good. The kids said it was okay and didn't ask for seconds. I had tons of leftovers that went in the trash.
I was still very eager to try the Apple Caramel cake, it took me about 6 weeks later. The kids were sick, then it was finals time for me, then Christmas! I fixed this on Christmas Eve and let me tell you, it was very yummy!! I was pleasantly surprised about how the cake had a homemade taste. I would definitely buy this cake mix at the store!
The glazes were both very good. I would buy both of them!
I just love Duncan Hines products! In fact when I'm making a cake from a box, Duncan Hines is the brand that I always buy. I'm not sure what was up with the Chocolate cake, but I would try it again, that's how much faith I have in Duncan Hines products! To set the record straight since it seems like I'm working for Duncan Hines here, LOL! I did receive the 2 cake mixes and 2 glazes for free, but everything that was said is my honest, humble opinion!
