Duff Tie-Dye Cake Mix

My girls attended a birthday party last year and when I went to pick them up I saw the most awesome home made cake by a non professional baker ever! The cake was tie dyed and it was perfect! The colors were bold and bright and did not bleed into one another. I just knew this mom had used a recipe off of Pinterest and probably put tons of hours into making it; I was wrong!  She said she purchased the Duff Tie-Dye Cake Mix from Target and she said it was simple; so with that said I had to try it out. 

This kit comes with everything that you need; cake mix and food coloring. 
My girls were really excited when they found out that I purchased the Duff Tie Dye Cake Mix kit. They were very eager to help and I was excited to let them learn how to make a tie dye cake. 
Mixing the cake was just like mixing any other cake. The detailed part was mixing the color but even though it was detailed, it was so simple.
I will admit that I had to concentrate when mixing the colors. It was easy but I had to focus on the color count. In addition, I ran out of yellow so I had to grab my personal yellow food coloring to finish the mix. 
I have to say how impressed I am with the Duff Tie-Dye Cake Mix. It was not only easy to make but it tasted great. My daughter has already requested one for her birthday … in December.

  10. Oh that is so cool! I really want to try and make a cake with some now! Fantastic! x

  11. I’ve seen these kind of cake mixes before … think I saw a camouflage one before that was super cool!! I wouldn’t want to eat them too often since they’re so full of food coloring dyes but they have great, fun presentation!

  12. Amazing!!! That is such an awesome cake and I LOVE when kits actually work right!!

  13. That is amazing! I am surprised it is not a lot more complicated. And looks like they had fun doing it. I want a bite!

  14. I’ve seen that one at the store and I wondered if it could possibly turn out as great as the photos on the box. You nailed it!

  15. I look at these cakes every time I go into the store and always wondered how they turned out. Looks super neat and fun!

  16. This came out great! I’ve seen this cake mix at Target and wondered how it would look! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Risa Bledsoe says

    That looks like a lot of fun and yummy! I may have to look into doing this for my daughter’s birthday. I’m sure it’s cheaper than the store bought premade cakes!

  30. This looks so cool! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this before. Pinning it!

  31. This is so cool! I bought this once and concentrated very hard on mixing the colors just right (you’re not kidding, you do have to focus), went to put it I the oven and my oven broke :/ needless to say I never got to try the cake but you just reminded me that I need to!

  32. Jessica DiGiannurio says

  36. LifeAsAConvert says

    That is cool, and somewhat how my “rainbow” cake turned out the first time I attempted to make one!

  37. Lawna Noe says

    I had bought one of these from Target and my kids ruined it before i had a chance to make it. This looks perfect for a birthday party!

  38. Growing Up Madison says

    Tie dye cake sounds good. I actually went to Michaels and have a tie dye shirt project that I need to do. I would love to make this though, the kids would surely enjoy making and eating it.

  39. That is all kinds of awesome. My boys birthday party is a week from Sunday and I would LOVE to make them tie dye cupcakes for it.
