Some people think you can't beat homemade cakes, but sometimes the day calls for moist boxed cake. The new Duncan Hines Strawberry Cheesecake Decadent Cupcake Mix ($4) has a neon pink color, tastes like strawberry candy, and comes with cream cheese frosting and a pastry bag. While the cake and frosting may have missed the cheesecake mark, they nail the nostalgia target.
