Please forgive me, but I have to laugh.

They are advertising their dessert, tunnel of fudge.

Doesn't that crack anyone up, so to speak?


OMG! Did their marketing department even think about that one for
a moment? That's truly awful... :-D


Tunnel of fudge is a well-established Bundt cake recipe. It's been around
for nearly 40 years. It's a Pillsbury bake-off thing. They used to sell a
boxed mix when Bundt cakes were all the rage.

used. Accurate oven temperature and baking times are essential.
