“Autumn Velvets”… doesn’t that just say, “Bake me!”…

So I did!

A cake mix by Duncan Hines…

My thought was that this was a chocolate and orange flavored cake…

As I prepared the two packages of cake mix that come in individual bags…

I kept trying to get a waft  of “orange” and “chocolate” scent…

but, it just wasn’t happening!

Doesn’t this look like “Chocolate” batter to you???

I baked them in my 2 round 8″ cake pans and they turned out great!…

but, even in baking no scent of orange or chocolate…

I decided to put a little Maple Flavoring in the white frosting… since… by, now…

I realized this cake was just dark brown and orange in color only…

Basically a yellow flavored cake mix… which was very good!…

but, not what I expected!…

Cutting into it… was delightful!… so pretty with it’s Fall “colors” of brown and orange…

and my husband said it was, “DELICIOUS!”… as it was pretty much devoured by today!…

I did get my one piece… but, still want to bake a Chocolate and Orange Flavored Cake…

My mouth was watering for it!

  1. Great cake. the chocolate zucchini cake sounds good too, I would like the information on it? By the way with the great buildup about the chocolate an orange flavor you never did say how was the taste?
