Duncan Hines® Perfect Size Cake Mixes - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Me and dessert, we get along.  Real well.  A delicious slice of cake baked just right with the right amount of frosting is food's glory. 
 
The downside to baking cake is that, often times, it's too much.  Unless it's for a birthday party or large event, a box of cake mix and tube of frosting can be a bit much.  Can't a girl just have a couple pieces, without letting the rest go to waste?!  Well, now she can!

The geniuses at Duncan Hines have come up with cake mixes that are the perfect size for two to four people.  Duncan Hines has the “Perfect Size” cake to fit any occasion and your hectic schedule.  They are just the right size when a full-size cake is too much (too many pans to clean, too much cake left over).

Duncan Hines has created Perfect Size cakes in five deliciously indulgent favors:

· Chocolate Lover’s – chocolate cake with chocolate frosting

· Red Velvet Dream – red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting

· Lemon Bliss – lemon cake with lemon frosting

· Strawberries and Cream – strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting

Each Perfect Size cake comes with a cake mix, frosting mix, and a disposable 6-inch round pan.
Because I'm not the only one in my house who likes cake, I've been whipping up cake and serving it for all kinds of occasions.  For instance, the Red Velvet Dream cake was baked and served for my two teen boys as an after-school snack.  The Strawberries and Cream cake was made for me and my mom to eat while doing a Bible study together.  And the others were served for other "just because" occasions.
 
The cake mix requires egg, butter and water.  And the frosting mix requires butter and water.  Both are mixed in separate bowls.  The cake mix goes into the disposable pan to bake for a set amount of time.  After the cake has baked and cooled a while, the frosting can be spread on top.  It really is the perfect volume for just a small number of people.
 
Of course, there's still occasions when a bigger cake needs to be made.  And there's mix already on the market for that.  But I love that the Duncan Hines® Perfect Size cake mixes has almost everything you need for smaller portions.  They taste just as good as the regular Duncan Hines cake mixes, and they're convenient.

 
Win It!
 
One person will win all five flavors of Duncan Hines® Perfect Size Cake Mixes and a Duncan Hines branded spatula.

I'm in the mood for red velvet, so I'm going with that one. I have a recipe for brownies that have red velvet cake on the top, and cream cheese frosting. It's so good!
