Review: Every time I make a red velvet cake, I spill red food coloring all over myself as well as the kitchen. But now Duncan Hines has made indulging in this old-fashioned dessert a little easier. The company also has added German chocolate to its cake-mix line. I baked one of each and found them both moist and delicious. It was so easy I was even inspired to make the icings typically used on these cakes - from scratch. If you don't want to get that carried away, Dun can Hines offers a variety of canned icings that do just as well.
