Duff Zebra Cake Mix

My husband’s birthday was last week so my girls and I decided to bake him a cake. We strolled the cake aisle at HEB and the Duff brand cake mix caught our eyes. We had two options, a rainbow cake mix or a zebra cake mix. My girls and I chose the Duff zebra cake mix.

When I saw the cool cake design on the cake box I was a little worried that I would not be able to pull it off, but it was worth a shot. After reading the instructions on the back of the box, I was pleasantly surprised, it was easy! 
The box contained two packs of cake mix, one vanilla and one chocolate. Each cake mix had their own separate instructions. 
My daughter was out of school with an ear ache on this day, so she was lucky enough to be my assistant. She did an excellent job at following directions. 
The cake mix instructions had simple instructions on how to make the perfect ‘zebra’ cake effect. Gia did an amazing job and was very patient. 
The cake came out perfect and I used regular store bought frosting. It was so tasty! My one tip is that on the box it reads to cook the cake for a certain amount of time, I believe it is a 10 minute gap such as 40-50 minutes. This is a big gap, so I would cook it for around 40 minutes and then test it.
I recommend the Duff Zebra Cake mix. Not only did my 7 year old enjoy helping me mix it up, but  my entire family enjoyed eating it for days! I am really excited to try the Rainbow design next.

  35. Vanilla and chocolate cake combined sounds very delicious. Since we don’t have an HEB near us, I checked to see where I could get this. Happy to see it’s available at Walmart and Target!

  36. Paris Anderson says

    This cake looks yummy! I’ll have to try Duff’s brand.


  37. I love the cool designs inside the cake. I actually never baked a cake before but one of these days my daughters and I will bake one together.

  38. Looks like a fun (and tasty!) project! Good to know that it isn’t that hard to do!

  39. I saw these cake mixes at Target yesterday! They have so many different flavors and designs to choose from. I wasn’t sure how they were going to be so I haven’t picked one up yet. Yours looks like it turned out yummy. We love to bake and this would be so much fun to make with my little girl!

  40. This looks like so much fun! It also looks delicious.

  41. He has his own cake mix how cool. I am so tired of Duncan Hines I would try this

  42. BrettBMartin says

    I love even just the packaging those come in. They always catch my eye in the store!

    • It always caught my eyes also and I always steered away because it was pricey for a ‘boxed’ cake and I thought.. UH do I really want to ‘think’ when I make a boxed cake. but this one was easy peasy!

  43. Around here, we call them marble cakes and my boys love when I make marble cakes for them. But seriously, who doesn’t love cake – especially when it’s chocolate AND vanilla.

  44. I was looking at those recently, and totally loved how wacky they come out. They’re super fun, and I have no doubt they’re equally as tasty.
