Cake in a Mug

I saw this idea on my friend Melissa's blog a little while back and had to try it! We did this a couple of weeks ago and had fun with it. Its cake you can make in a mug with just a few ingredients in the microwave. See this post for recipe and directions. The kids loved it! It was fun, easy and yummy.




The only problem we encountered was this. . .

What happened was the cake rose so high that it hit the metal rack, which knocked the cup over. At first I didn't get what happened. We heard this loud bang and then I opened the microwave to see the cup knocked over and the cake almost completely out of the cup. I just thought it exploded and popped out. Duh, Holly-the rack! It actually took me a minute to figure that out. . .cuz I'm slow sometimes. :)
Here are the kids enjoying their treat, along with icecream on the side topped with whip cream(because I believe in packing in the sugar!) It was heavenly. Thanks Melissa for the idea!

Oh how creative. A sideways cake. That is new from the old upside down cake. How fun and a little funny Holly Dolly.

I've always wondered how well that would work -- now I know. No rack, and it works great!

I am sending you love. You are so good to me and always say the sweetest things. You are special to me dear Holly. Marie and I both love you... and your sweet family.

When are you'al going to SLC this summer. Maybe I could meet you and Patty there. I would love to see you again and meet your sweet mom. Is Tara coming too?... or Cindi???
Maybe while you are there I could fix dinner for you all at Lynell's. I am getting excited just thinking about it.

Enjoy what is left of the weekend. Love, Lura
