Shortcut to Glamor

Can a fancy cake be quick to make? We find out for sure in the Pillsbury Kitchens, where one of our Pillsbury home economists times another. Results prove that show cakes can be incredibly easy when you use imagination and Pillsbury Mixes.

Fudge Ribbon Cake

A big white cake with a chocolate heart. The heart is made from a loaf-size package of Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Cake. You use White Cake Mix for the other two layers and you frost the creamy fudge inside, fluffy white outside.

Sound good? It is good. We know, because we’ve baked it often in our own Pillsbury Kitchens, which are very much like yours. Try it and let us know what you think. Try the ribbon idea with other flavors, too. Because Pillsbury makes both loaf sizes and regular size mixes you can mix-or-match flavors to your heart’s content.
