Dolly Parton is the most iconic country star out there. From her hit albums to her heartwarming Netflix specials to her passion for charity, we can’t get enough of Dolly. And now we can all share in a little Parton-style sweetness because Dolly has partnered with Duncan Hines to release a new line of Southern-style cake mixes and frostings.

Yes, Dolly Loves Cooking and Baking

Now, you may think that a superstar like Dolly wouldn’t have time to fuss in the kitchen, but she’s a certified Southern foodie. In fact, her recipes for chicken and dumplings and five-layer casserole are downright mouthwatering.

“I have always loved to cook and, growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking,” Dolly says.

What Kind of Cake Mix Will She Have?

With that in mind, Dolly connected with Duncan Hines to create sweet treats inspired by her Tennessee upbringing. She’s bringing us all that “sweet, Southern-style baking experience,” and we’re delighted!

Her collection includes a Southern-style coconut cake mix, banana cake mix (perfect for making Dolly’s favorite Banana Puddin’ Cake), buttercream frosting and chocolate buttercream.

And we’re certain these mixes and frostings will inspire sweet memories and second helpings. After all, Duncan Hines makes one of our Test Kitchen’s favorite cake mixes of all time, and our editors love their vanilla frosting for icing a cake fast.
