She’s a beloved, singer, songwriter, Southern icon and now you can add a sweet new venture to her impressive resume.

This week, Duncan Hines announced the launch of a new line of Southern-inspired desserts with GRAMMY® Award-winning artist, and noted philanthropist Dolly Parton. This new line includes cake mixes and frostings inspired by some of Dolly’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,” said Dolly Parton. “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.”

To introduce the partnership, Duncan Hines offered the limited-edition Dolly Parton’s Baking Collection on Wednesday on their website and the offer quickly sold out. The special collection gave Dolly fans an opportunity to be the first to try her new line of cake mixes and frostings, which won’t hit store shelves nationwide until Spring.

If you missed out, items that will hit local shelves this March including: Southern Style Coconut Flavored Cake Mix, Southern Style Banana Flavored Cake Mix, Creamy Buttercream Frosting and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting as well as collectible tea towel, spatula, and custom recipe cards.
