Funfetti Cake In A Mug

Sometimes you really want cake but you really don’t need to make a whole cake. It happens to everyone. Make a Funfetti Cake In a Mug for a treat for one.

Sometimes if I fight a sweet craving I start having dreams about it. I mean it, I have dreamt of dancing doughnuts a la Beauty and the Beast.

It was weird, so I’ve learned to find a way to satisfy those cravings without killing my healthy eating. Cake in a mug is a fantastic invention and whoever first thought it up was absolutely brilliant.

One night I was up late working and I had been craving cake with buttercream. I love my ridiculously specific cravings. So I whipped this up enjoyed eating it and moved on.

The hardest part about making this cake is waiting for the cake to cool at least a little bit before you put the frosting on. I didn’t and you can kind of tell my frosting was melting on the sides. Oops. It still tasted fabulous so if you don’t mind go for it.

  1. This funfetti cake in a mug looks so fun. I do like the idea of making a mug of cake – as long as I can put my frosting on it! Have a great Labor Day weekend.

    1. Absolutely. I eat it just because it’s there not necessarily because I really want a piece. So this removes that major temptation and I’m pretty sure my waistline is thanking me for it.
