One last product from the Duff Goldman line that I wanted to review was the Duff Goldman Chocolate Cake Mix. The brightly-boxed cake mix is one of the products from his new line of cake-decorating supplies and sells for a little more than what boxed cake mixes go for in the grocery store. I couldn’t resist trying it after I tried the ultra-expensive Ad Hoc Cake Mix, which seemed to prove that while a premium cake mix can put out a product that is outstanding, it’s still hard to justify a cake mix that is very pricey. Fortunately, the Duff Goldman mix wasn’t in the same league price-wise as the Ad Hoc stuff.
The Duff Goldman cake mix is pretty much like your standard boxed mix, where you add in water, eggs and oil to a bag of cake ingredients. The cake is moist and has a really good chocolate flavor to it, along with a very nice, dark color. It didn’t stand out too much from your average box mix, in spite of the slightly higher price, however. Still, it was tasty and easy to work with and not a bad mix to have in the back of the cupboard for when you want a quick chocolate cake fix!
