The iconic country singer has partnered with Duncan Hines to release a baking collection with cake mixes and frostings inspired by Parton’s favorite family recipes, like Coconut Cake and Banana Puddin’ Cake.
“I have always loved to cook and, growing up in the South, I especially love that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking,” Parton shared in a statement. “I am excited to launch my own line of cake mixes and frostings with Duncan Hines, bringing that sweet, Southern-style baking experience I enjoy to others.”
In celebration of the partnership, Duncan Hines launched the limited-edition Dolly Parton’s Baking Collection on Wednesday via shop.duncanhines.com. The special kit included:

The demand for the collection was so high that the product quickly sold out.
