Indulge Your Sweet Side with Gourmet Cake & Cupcake Mixes

Get into some seriously sweet times in the kitchen with gourmet cake & cupcake mixes. These quick mixes let you experience the joy of making your baked treats yourself, but take a lot of the work out of the way for you, so you can focus on the fun. Choose these mixes to make cakes for your family over the weekend or to celebrate a special occasion, like a birthday or a well-deserved success at work. Keep a few mixes on hand, so you have just the thing when an opportunity arises. With rainbow layer cakes, rich Bundt styles and lusciously flavored cupcakes, the hardest thing about making these baked treats is knowing which one to make first.

What Makes a Cake Mix Gourmet?

Gourmet cake & cupcake mixes stand out from your average cakes thanks to their fine ingredients, creative flavor profiles or combinations and balanced texture once ready to serve. The fact that they're so convenient to make is really just a bonus.

  • These cakes and cupcakes taste just as good as or better than anything you'd select from a high-end bakery or make yourself from scratch.
  • Upscale takes on classics showcase a gourmet approach. Try a confetti cake that focuses on layers and filling, no exterior icing needed, or a molten Bundt that takes the work out of filling the cake.
  • Try delightful, deeply flavored versions of the baked goods everyone loves, like a complex vanilla taste packed into an easy cupcake or a pound cake scented with Meyer lemon.

  • Rainbow cakes are on-trend right now and for good reason. Layers of bright colors are festive and playful.
  • Pound cakes made with real vanilla bean offer a quick recipe when you use a mix that's ready in time for a coffee date at your place or breakfast in the morning.
  • Red velvet is beloved for its enticing color, but you'll fall for this cake because it's so easy to make. Go for the Bundt or cupcake mix--or both.

There's Always an Occasion for a Cake
