Description Magazine advertisement featuring Duncan Hines White Cake Mix. The advertisement was featured in the November 1954 edition of Household magazine.

The right side of the advertisement features color photographs of a measuring cup, eggs, a wooden spoon, a box of Duncan Hines White Cake Mix, a white cake with chocolate icing and a plate of crumbs with a fork. These photographs are featured over a pink background.

The left side of the page contains text reading "NOTE FROM DUNCAN HINES:
Instead of a recipe I'll pass along this note for making cakes with real homemade goodness.
You simply take water and your own fresh eggs (truly essential to fresh, moist cakes)
and add them to my cake mixes.
You'll get cakes that are high and light like this every time
....cakes that stay moist to the last bite!"
Beneath this, is printed "Duncan Hines Try one of his cake mixes today: White, Yellow, Devil's Food, or Spice."
