NOT GREAT

not buying this again. The instructions are too advanced I’m not a professional baker I just bought this for fun. Unclear cooking times. I had only one 9 inch pan and didn’t know what time to bake it for because it only says the time for two 9 inch pans. Also NEVER SEEMED TO BAKE I had to put this back in the oven so many times because the middle was always wet. Try a different brand.

Solid Mix!

I used this cake mix to make my boyfriend’s birthday cake. It’s quite tasty, the cake was a big hit. I will say; I sub out water for whole milk, oil for melted butter, add an extra egg, and add about a tablespoon of instant espresso powder to really up the quality and texture of the mix. However, I feel the mix is still obviously responsible for most of the magic! Red Velvet is a pain in the butt to make, and this always comes in handy even with my extra tricks!

Severe Headache from Duncan Hines products

I tried Duncan Hines brownie for the first time, and it gave me a severe headache. Thinking it might be due to chocolate, I gave their Red Velvet cake a chance, only to experience the same intense migraine. Disappointed with the results, I've decided to discard these products.

This cake is perfectly red and moist but has O FLAVOR. Like I thought my tastebuds were broken. But had hubby try too and yep NO FLAVOR AT ALL. If I were blindfolded I'd have no idea what cake this is. You cannot taste any cocoa. Not chocolate, not vanilla, but no flavor cake. So disappointed.

i bought this to make for my friends birthday cake, and it tasted disgusting. I did everything correct and have made many cakes. Was dry, and didn’t taste like red velvet tasted like a bad chocolate cake. I love this brand pineapple cake but this is just disgusting and disappointing. Time to buy a store bought cake.

My husband sneaked this into the grocery cart then hinted every night until I finally caved. I’m not a red velvet fan, and I pie made them from scratch but never been impressed. But this cake is delicious! I made it with buttermilk instead of water and used melted butter instead of the oil. I also added vanilla. It is the best red velvet cake husband has ever had, and I highly recommend it!

This flavor made our family sick. The red dye came off the cupcake. You can taste the poison. My fiancé is a chef and bakes plenty of cakes. This particular brand caused stomach pains, nausea, & red dye in my stool. Never again !

Tastes like oil not cake

Disapointed - 2 years ago
originally posted on duncanhines.com
I bought this mix a week ago to make Cupcakes for my husband’s birthday and they taste awful! There is not even a hint of the rich devils food chocolate flavor that should be present in a good red velvet cake. In fact all you can taste is the oil! I even used the suggestion on the side of the box to replace the water with buttermilk and that didn’t even mask the oil flavor. I will not be using this product again!

This is the only red velvet cake mix That isn’t dry. If you want to go a step further, add an extra egg and people think it’s from a bakery. I used this to make red velvet cheesecake bars.
