3) Chill the dough

4) Roll dough and bake.

Do you have a preference on brand of cake mix?

    Hi Olivia! I don’t have a strong preference as to which brand I use.. I typically buy Duncan Hines from my local grocer but apparently a bunch of their stuff is on recall right now, haha. So whatever brand you usually buy will be fine I’m sure!
