OK, since my last post I attributed to a song (“Sweater Weather” by Neighbourhood) I thought I’d give this one the appropriate “Lovely Cup” by Grouplove. We are HUGE music lovers and always on the hunt for good music or listening to music we consider classics so feel free to share with us anytime! Anyway, sorry I got distracted. With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s such a great ‘holiday’ to gorge on sweet treats and hang out with your friends and/or lover. This is a perfect sweet treat to have or even possibly make with your friends/lover. Cake in a cup – genius!
What you will need:
– Glass mugs
– Cake mix of your liking (with needed ingredients: eggs, vanilla, etc.)
– Fun sprinkles or toppings
I only made two cups so I didn’t need much cake mix at all. Half a batch of cake mix from a box will be plenty for two mugs.
(While the oven is pre-heating, I greased the mugs and mixed up the cake batter)
(I then filled the cups a little less than halfway full)
(You can then place the mugs directly on the oven rack once the oven is pre-heated)
(I started the timer with about 20 minutes but kept checking back as they actually finished around 30 minutes. It’s a trial and error depending on how much cake mix you used. I tried to follow the instructions on the cake box for cupcakes though)
(These sprinkles that I found at Target, are a gift from the baking gods. I use them for sooo many things as you will see throughout the blog)
(I then added pretty/delicious sprinkles and a few marshmallows for some added sugar 😀 Valentine’s Day is worth splurging for)
Then, after you eat the cake, just fill up your mug with some coffee. It’s perfection really. It’s a great way to bribe people to spend some quality time with you. I mean, I’d be sold!
