"And I learned to cook from my mom, and my grandmas, and my aunts, and my sisters. We all get together and swap recipes," Parton tells her TikTok fans.

A few of these TikTok videos, including this one, show the country singer surrounded by boxes of cake mix and jars of frosting from the
Dolly Parton Duncan Hines Baking Collection, which Duncan Hines says was "inspired by Dolly's famous southern recipes.
The partnership between Parton and Duncan Hines was announced earlier this year, and they are selling like hotcakes.
The Duncan Hines website says the baking kit is sold out, but you can still buy cake mixes and frostings at the grocery store.
Interview-style TikTok video. If Dolly's red and gold costume doesn't grab you, her honesty and wit will.
Parton says she cooks well. "I'm not a gourmet cook—my food is not pretty—but it's excellent," she assured TikTok viewers.
I'm fascinated by cooks who put their heart and soul into a dish's presentation, but the idea that a singer like Dolly Parton—whose looks have benefited her
longterm fame status—cares more about flavour than beauty is refreshing. In this TikTok video, Parton's comments shows that she's just a southern home cook.
I'm looking forward to Dolly's next TikTok post. If this hasn't convinced you of her videos' delight, go watch them.
