Anyone else remember Stir 'n' Frost? I ate a kajillion of those things back in the day, and in fact the tagline was along the same lines of this product: "When a big cake is more than you need, you need Stir 'n' Frost." It was awesome...came with a pan, a packet of mix, and a packet of frosting. Just add water, stir it right in the pan, bake, frost, and eat. Yep, I miss SnF.

That is why I decided to try the new Duncan Hines Perfect Size Strawberries and Cream Cake. It sounded like a great idea.

The cake itself went together easily enough but it still took about the same amount of time to prepare as a regular packaged cake mix. It comes with its own little pan. You bake for 34-39 minutes at 300 degrees. But what I found particularly annoying was that I was now required to mix up the frosting utilizing the electric mixer for a second time. And judging from the comments of some of the other reviewers the frosting really is not all that great anyway. I decided that I really did not want to spend the time so I tossed the frosting...
