The cake and icing are amazing and I liked them so much I thought it would be fun to give them away as well in a home made gift basket. I included a few extra thins in my basket as well, including Truvia, Nestle Chocolate chips and Wilton icing. It’s very easy to make your own gift basket.

ABOUT CAKE BOSS Mixes & Frostings & Pans

FrostingFamilyShot_LowRes

A fourth generation baker and star of TLC’s hit TV series Cake Boss, Next Great Baker and Bakery Boss, premiering in December, Buddy shared his knowledge, expertise and love for baking as he developed his line of Cake Boss cake mixes and frostings. To deliver the authentic taste and quality of Carlo’s bakery, Cake Boss cake mixes and frostings are crafted in partnership with Dawn Foods, who has been supplying Buddy’s bakery with high quality ingredients for decades.

“Not everyone has the time to whip up a Cake Boss approved dessert from scratch,” said Valastro. "I want to arm home bakers and baking novices alike with the supplies to produce a mouthwatering cake, and my new mixes and frostings provide that bakery quality taste.”

When it comes to a great tasting cake, it starts with the right ingredients. Each cake mix comes with a pouch of bakery crème and that’s what makes it “AH” amazing. Buddy’s secret to making velvety moist cakes. The cake mixes are available in six delicious flavors:  

VA VA VELVET – Moist, delicious and smooth red velvet cake.    
IT’S YOUR PARTY – Fun, festive and full of flavor confetti cake. 
DECADENT DEVIL’S FOOD – Indulgent, satisfying and sinfully delicious devil’s food cake.  
CHOCOLATE TRIFECTA – Deliciously moist triple chocolate cake made with chocolate liquor.  
PRIMO YELLOW – Moist, flavorful and simply delicious cake. 
DIVINE WHITE – Exquisitely moist, rich and delectable white cake.

The premium frostings give you a taste experience you would expect to find at Buddy’s bakery. Made with high quality ingredients and zero trans-fat, the frostings pair perfectly with Cake Boss cake mixes. They are available in four indulgent flavors:  

WHOLE LOTTA CHOCOLATE – Made with chocolate liquor and two kinds of chocolate, creating double the decadence. 
VIVA VANILLA – A sweet and creamy taste using vanilla extract. 
MEGA MILK CHOCOLATE – A thick, rich and milk-chocolaty delicious frosting with chocolate liquor.
