Most people love a little bit of a treat in the afternoon or after dinner, and a single serving of yummy chocolate cake would be well received! Enter the Mug Cake – a cake mix you pour into a mug, stir in a few wet ingredients and microwave for a perfect single serving of cake. Yummy!
Stampin’ Up! now has cute Mini Jam Jars, and each can hold about 1/2 cup of contents. I found a recipe at TableforTwoblog.com that is exactly 1/2 cup – perfect for this adorable little food-safe jars!
In the video below, I’ll share a few more ideas with the Mini Jam Jars, but making your own mini cake mix is quite unique.
