Cup cakes

January 20, 2010

No recipe today, but I wanted to show you these cute cup cakes.  Get it?  {tee hee}  Cup cakes.  Oh, I amuse myself.  Anyway, this is just a boxed cake mix and store-bought frosting, but I turned it into something fun to surprise the kids.  Don’t they remind you of a cup of hot chocolate with a big ‘ole dollop of whipped cream?  My kids loved them.  I believe Claudia said they were “fabulous.”  : )

Obviously, you’ll want to check to make sure your cups are oven-safe before doing this.  I sprayed the insides of mine with Baker’s Joy baking spray, then filled them halfway with cake batter.  They took about 20-25 minutes to bake, until they passed the toothpick test.  After cooling, I added the frosting and a sprinkling of powdered sugar.  They were a big hit.

    Very cute idea. I would like to try the microwave version of this mug cake sometime soon. I keep forgeting though! My kids would love this type of cup cake- it is the simple ideas that they go so crazy over! Perfect at 4pm when I am getting on their nerves;-)

    But how do you know if you can use them in the oven? They don’t put that on teacups and I asked recently in the store and they told me that if it is has enamel then you cannot use it in the oven but yours look like they have enamel too… Just curious!

    What a great idea! They would make an awesome shower/party favor and let the guests take home and keep the mugs. Thanks for the inspiration!
