I love delicious desserts that are so very simple to make. Which is why I have a soft spot for treats made with boxed cake mix. It started with these Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies, which are so pretty yet possibly the best cookie there ever was. Then, I spotted strawberry cake mix while in store, and made these Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I’m always on the hunt for boxed cake mix recipes, for their simplicity but also because I’m hardly disappointed that they aren’t made from scratch. The taste is always great, and there’s plenty of flavours to choose from. For this recipe I used yellow cake mix, but truthfully, you can use whichever flavour you prefer.
Mini bundt cakes are a good choice because everyone does cupcakes. It’s a simple change that will make these mini individual desserts stand out. They are a pretty shape, even before decorated. All you ned is a Mini Bundt Cake Pan, and the one linked for you, is a 12 cavity great quality pan. Plus, it’s under $11.

MINI BUNDT CAKE MAKING TIPS
When making mini bundt cakes using a box cake mix according to the directions on the back of the box, it will make about 12 mini bundt cakes. Which is perfect for this Wilton Mini Fluted Tube Pan, 12-Cavity.
I use cooking spray and then a dusting of flour when I bake with my bundt cake pans. It helps to ensure the baked goods don’t stick to the pan.
You also want to allow the cakes to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack. This helps for easy removal, and to set the cake a little so that the wires of the rack doesn’t indent the cakes. Keep in mind, if you leave the cakes in the pan too long, you’ll have a difficult time removing them.
