Unicorns and mermaids adorn everything your kids own from their toys to their clothes. Now, they can enjoy their favorite mythical creatures at dessert time too. 

Duncan Hines is releasing Mermaid, Unicorn, and Galaxy themed personal-sized cake cups. These colorful desserts are as easy to make as they are pretty. Plus, there’s no cleanup. 

Simply, pop open the lid, add 3 tablespoons of water to the mix and microwave for 1 minute. Don’t stress if the colors don’t look quite right, the batter changes color as it bakes. Top your cake with confetti-like sprinkles and bright melty chips. These mini cakes will have you believing that unicorns are real. 

Mermaid: Vanilla-flavored purple cake mix with colorful pearl-like purple and white sprinkles.
