These adorable cake cups are coming soon to a grocery store near you!

Duncan Hines is planning the release of three new microwavable cakes that will join its existing line of cake cups this February. Starting next month, you’ll be able to buy these fun new flavors for a suggested retail price of $1.65 at retailers nationwide.

The new cake cups include Mermaid (purple vanilla cake with sprinkles that look like pearls), Unicorn (pink vanilla cake with pink and purple sprinkles), and the astronaut-themed Galaxy cake cup, which features chocolate cake and blue sprinkles.

These colorful desserts are dangerously easy to make! Simply add three tablespoons of water, mix, and microwave for one minute. The batter changes color during the baking process, so part of the fun is waiting for your cake to undergo its colorful transformation while it bakes! Take it out of the microwave, decorate it with the included toppings, grab a spoon, and dessert is served!

    Cute! Just the right portion to give a little one for a fun celebration / birthday! Thanks for sharing I’ll be on the look out for them!

    Typically Duncan Hines is dairy free! Hope these are. My daughter is lactose intolerant and we only buy Duncan Hines.

    These look great… I had a free offer on these at the local grocery store a few weeks ago and I think I opted for the oreo one….. it was gross…. I mean edible but I love the Betty Croker mug treats and let me say this one does not live up to that …. but given different tastes maybe some people will love it …. I just know personally that it was too dry and bland for me

    Cute! If you need something like this in larger quantities, make your own 3-2-1 cake. Mix one box cake mix with one box angel food cake mix. Makes a lot of similar size desserts. Put 3 tablespoons of mix into a coffee cup with 2 tablespoons water, stir, and microwave for one minute. Add a topping if you like, such as icing, whipped cream, marshmallow topping, peanut butter, etc. My kids can make a personal cake themselves. Plus lower fat and calories!
