It’s a dream come true!  Pink Velvet cake has just won my heart!  I wasn’t really expecting it to be any different than a yellow cake. But after trying the Duncan Hines Signature Pink Velvet Cake Mix, I was pleasantly surprised at the similar but more mellow and tasty flavor of the Pink Velvet Cake Mix compared to The Red Velvet Cake Mix.

Duncan Hines describes their Pink Velvet Cake Mix as “Our new Pink Velvet flavor is a moist buttermilk cake with a touch of cocco and rich pink color. It goes swimmingly with cream cheese frosting or classic vanilla buttercream. Some even enjoy it with our raspberry chambord buttercream”.

According to various Internet sources, including these by Mental_Floss and io9, velvet cakes of the past were made with baking soda and either vinegar or buttermilk. When the baking soda combined with either of these two ingredients, it would bubble up and cause the cake to have a fluffy and smooth texture.

But as we know, time changes everything and recipes are always evolving. Some traditional cakes still use the classic bubblin’ ingredients, while others use butter or sour cream to achieve that delicious velvety texture we all love.
