Perfect for college students, single friends, or those who can't cook

Lots of fun to mix and match a basket with a few of these in it!

Cake mix
1 cake mix any flavor

1 small instant pudding mix (not sugar free), any flavor.

Combine and blend well.

Measure 1/2 cup of mix into a sandwich bag.


Glaze mix

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons dry flavoring--lemonade mix, orange breakfast drink mix, cocoa.

Vanilla powder (sold by coffee flavorings)

Place the glaze mix ingredients into a sandwich bag. Label this bag "glaze mix" and attach it to the other bag with a twist tie.

Place one baggie cake mix and one baggie glaze mix in each coffee cup. Attach the baking instructions to each coffee cup.


Mug Variation
Personalize the mug with the recipients name, a Christmas message, or an abstract, yet colorful, design. Buy a plain white or solid colored mug and DecoArt craft paint. Follow the directions on the label.

Be sure to select a large mug to hold at least 1-1/2 cups of water. The mug must be microwavable.

Flavor Options
Lemon cake mix-lemon pudding
Yellow mix-chocolate pudding
Devils food mix-chocolate pudding
Pineapple mix-coconut pudding
