Mug cakes are everywhere, so I decided to jump on the cake wagon and bring you a super fast, three ingredient “recipe” along with a fun new product that will celebrate anyone, and any occasion, just by adding water. It’s a party in a box!
It was back in 2015 when I had the idea to paint mugs that could be used specifically for the mug cake recipes that I was seeing all over the internet. I knew that I wanted to include a pre-made cake mix along with the mugs, but needed it to be extra simple for gift giving purposes. After all, most people don’t carry eggs in their pockets for when they have a taste for a little cake at work.
The recipe I’m sharing with you is one from Amanda, over at I Am Baker, and it’s absolutely perfect for this mug cake, cake mix gift set. It’s crazy easy and requires only three ingredients: One box of angel food cake mix, One box of cake mix (your choice of flavors), and water. Easy peasy!
- 1 box angel food cake mix any brand
- 1 box cake mix any flavor (any brand)
- large container with air-tight lid
- microwave safe mug
Place the cake mixes in a large container. Stir well to combine.
Place 5 tablespoons cake mix into large microwave safe mug.
Add 2½ tablespoons water. Mix well to combine.
Microwave for 1 minute on high power. Allow to cool slightly before eating.
Return the air-tight lid to the container and store the cake mix in a cool, dark place.
There are tons of mug cake recipes on the internet. Some are more involved than others. To find additional recipes for using with your mug, type "mug cake recipe" in the search bar of your browser.

So you see? Mug cakes come in many flavors and can be pretty involved as far as the ingredient list goes, or as simple as just add water.
Each mug cake, cake mix set you order comes complete with a uniquely hand painted mug, a single serving of cake mix (your choice of either chocolate, chocolate chip, OR vanilla with sprinkles), a candle for celebrating, and a gift box that is ready for wrapping. Also included are the easy to follow directions for making the cake mix included in the mug. It’s that simple, and all for under $20 (not including the shipping and handling).
Custom orders are also always welcome so if you have a specific idea or design in mind, (i.e. for your daughter’s ballet teacher, your son’s t-ball coach, or even your hairdresser, or dog groomer), I can paint that for you! Please contact me by clicking on the little envelope icon at the top of my site, and I’ll be happy to customize a mug for someone on your gift giving list that you won’t find anywhere else!
