Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Giveaway!

Thanks to All You Magazine and Duncan Hines for today’s giveaway. To promote new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations, they are offering three readers sample kits with a copy of All You magazine, four boxes of cake mix,  and four different flavors of Frosting Creations, a product designed to help you “unleash your inner dessert artist”.

Frosting Creations Flavors

Frosting Creations is a plain carton of frosting, to which you stir in a flavored mix. The idea is to use your imagination, mix and match flavors and execute all those great ideas floating around in your head. With 12 varieties, you have plenty to choose from. I started easy and used the Strawberry Shortcake Frosting Creations as a filling for this Neapolitan themed cake.

Neapolitan cake

The Strawberry Shortcake filling had a light mousse-like texture that contrasted nicely to the firm, scratch frosting I used for coating. I tested the same cake idea using Cherry-Vanilla Frosting Creations as the filling and Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting Creations as the coating. That worked well too, though in hindsight I wish I had coordinated the cherry filling with something pistachio and almond to make “Spumoni”. I’ll save that idea for later.


The point is, the different flavors give you the convenience of experimenting without the time consuming task of developing a scratch, flavored icing. You can choose from Cinnamon Roll, Cotton Candy, Chocolate Mint, Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Almond, Bubble Gum, Orange Crème, Mocha, Chocolate Marshmallow, White Chocolate Raspberry, Cherry Vanilla, and Caramel. Of the ones I tested, I liked the Chocolate Marshmallow the best and am curious to try the Caramel and Mocha.

Now it’s time for your opinion. If you’d like to sample the Frosting Creations, tell me your favorite flavor combination of all time. For instance, I think mine is graham, marshmallow and milk chocolate, but I also like chocolate and peanut butter.

The giveaway ends April 1 at midnight, and the next day I’ll email 3 random readers to let them know they’ve won. Until then, look for Frosting Creations at Wal*Mart and Target (it will start appearing at other grocery stores on April 9) and pick up a copy of the April issue of All You Magazine for a handy Frosting Creations coupon.

    That’s fun! Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite flavor combo, with cheddar and apple a close second (but weirder for a cupcake).

    chocolate with mint is my favorite. other likes are vanilla with any citrus and also chocolate with coffee.

  3. Melissa says

    PB & chocolate, or sea salt and just about anything! (caramel, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon….) Fruit and vanilla or fruit and cheesecake are also up there….

    Mmm, I’m a chocolate and PB girl, too. But I love chocolate and anything (chocolate mint, chocolate cherry, chocolate orange…).

  5. Kristen says

    I have been loving chocolate and sea salt lately, but basically chocolate and anything tastes amazing.

    I’m excited for the mint chocolate. I think my favorite combo has always been pb and chocolate though.

    hmmm i love chocolate & pumpkin, chocolate & banana, banana & peanut butter (and chocolate), oh jeez there are just too many.

  9. Allison W says

    Peanut butter and chocolate is my all time cake frosting combination with vanila on vanilla being a close second!

    I love chocolate and caramel! Also I am with you on the peanut butter chocolate combo! Can’t wait to try these out! Hope Inwin!

  12. Karen says

    Pineapple and marshmallow, but chocolate and raspberry would be my second choice.
    What’s with the sea salt and chocolate stuff? New idea to me.

  13. Jenna H. says

    If I can’t have just chocolate (and the more the better) then I would choose chocolate and peanut butter. Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Martha T says

    My favorite would be chocolate and peanut butter — preferably dark (maybe even bittersweet) chocolate and crunchy peanut butter!

  15. Claire says

    Chocolate and peanut butter is unbeatable to me! It’s a classic combination, and it’s sooo delicious.

  16. Jennifer says

    I love chocolate and marshmallow, but chocolate, salted caramel and pecan is a close 2nd!

  17. Joyce Mitchell says

    Brown sugar & toasted pecan is my favorite combination. Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Karen says

    Chocolate & peanut butter, chocolate & mint, chocolate & salted caramel, chocolate & marshmallow……oh my….chocolate and just about anything! 🙂

  19. Jacqui says

    DEFINITELY chocolate and peanut butter!! It is the most delicious combination ever 🙂

  20. Alyson says

    This is a hard question! Chocolate-marshmallow-caramel (a la Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food) is high up on my list. Also, cinnamon & sugar. Chocolate-hazelnut. Strawberries & cream. Fun giveaway!

  21. Nancy says

    I just love PB & Banana plain or on a sandwich/toast. Sometimes I’ll do almond butter instead.

  22. Alyssa says

    Chocolate and coffee or vanilla and coffee or strawberry and almond. Mmmmm. Or cream cheese and red velvet. Too many to choose from!

  23. says

    Lemon and strawberry!
    Strawberry and caramel!
    Caramel and bananas!
    Bananas and dark chocolate!
    Chocolate and EVERYTHING!

  24. Cindy says

    The Cherry vanilla tempts me, I think with white chocolate sounds good. I wonder what the strawberry shortcake frosting would add to a jello poke white cake with strawberries as garnish. And mint chocolate goes with everything!

  25. Katie Mc. says

    I would really love the cotton candy flavored frosting with a fun colorful vanilla cake.

  26. Dazzled says

    Oh my goodness these would be fantastic for the deployed bf! Since I can’t make homemade flavored bc or send any fillings! Can’t wait for them to come out!
    My fav combo is blueberry & vanilla…. or chocolate & pb of course!

  27. Carrie says

    Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favorites, though I’m also loving chocolate and pretzel right now. Is pretzel a flavor? I don’t know – but it tastes delicious!

  28. Angelina S says

    Chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and raspberries…they seem a little obvious, but there’s a reason why they’re classics!

  29. Mary says

    I’ve always loved chocolate and peanuts or peanutbutter. but just discovered the wonderful blend of dark chocolate and huckleberry – YUM!

  30. Anita says

    My favorite flavor combination? Hmmm, probably chocolate-mocha-almond — a combo that’s not too sweet and with a little crunch.

    I haven’t seen this new magazine yet, but will look for it the next time I go to the store. Thanks for the heads up….

  31. Kimmie @ The Cookie Puzzle says

    I think it would be a toss up between chocolate/mint and chocolate/peanut butter

  32. etti says

    I love raspberry and dark chocolate,but pumpkin,brown sugar and cinnamon could get me to put down the chocolate ……hahaha

  33. Van says

    Mine has to be strawberry lemonade. Which aren’t flavors on here but I wonder how the caramel taste.

  34. Rene says

    I’m a chocolate and mint kind of girl, but the mango/chili sounds divine as well!
