Dolly Parton is hitting a sweet note with her recent collaboration: in 2022, the Grammy Award-winning country music singer teamed up with Duncan Hines for her very own Southern-style cake line.

The line of mixes and frostings are inspired by some of Parton’s favorite family recipes, including Coconut Cake and Banana Puddin’ Cake.

“I have always loved to cook, and growing up in the South, I especially loved that authentic Mom and Pop kind of cooking,” says Parton, a cultural icon and philanthropist, in a news release. “I am excited to launch my own line of cake mixes and frostings with Duncan Hines, bringing that sweet, Southern-style baking experience I enjoy to others.”

Duncan Hines is also selling a limited-edition Dolly Parton Baking Collection for $40 online. The collection includes coconut flavored cake mix, banana flavored cake mix, buttercream and chocolate buttercream frosting, a tea towel and spatula, as well as custom recipe cards. The spatula has a cute saying: “If you are what you eat then why not be sweet.”

Shoppers can find the Duncan Hines Dolly Parton cake mixes and frostings in the baking section of grocery stores and mass retailers. The suggested retail price is $2.19 for the cake mixes and $2.09 for frostings. Duncan Hines has also published recipes for Dolly’s Favorite Coconut Cake, which is generously topped with coconut flakes, and Dolly’s Favorite Banana Puddin’ Cake that calls for a topping of vanilla wafers and banana slices.

This year, Parton is expanding on her line of sweets with Duncan Hines. Beginning in January, the brand started rolling out four new baking mixes: a cornbread mix, two brownie mixes and a buttermilk biscuit mix.

On February 8, you may be able to get access to a run of limited-edition Dolly Parton Baking Collection kits on, reports Southern Living. The kits are $40 plus shipping and handling and include the new baking mixes, a Dolly-inspired tea towel and spatula and recipe cards for turning the mixes into other family-favorite recipes like Cheddar Chive Biscuits and Jalapeno Cornbread.
