I am a May baby and I received such a sweet gift from my mom for my birthday. A personal birthday cake, in a special mug, just for me. Having your own individual cake makes you feel extra special! We all want to make our loved ones feel extra special. They are, after all, precious gifts from above!
You start with a box of angel food cake mix and a box of regular cake mix in any flavor. (We used a white cake mix.) Mix together in a sealed bag or container. This can be stored in a cabinet for making gifts or your own personal cakes.
Take 3 TBSP of the cake mix you just mixed up and put that into a small bag.
Print off one of the gift tags and the instruction tag. Just click on the tag you would like to use and you will be given the option to download or open a PDF file that you can print out.
Cut the tags out. Punch out the hole. I like to add a little ink around the edges of my tags.
Use a piece of ribbon or twine to tie the gift tag and the instruction tag to the mug. Put the small bag of cake mix into the bottom.
You can put a little something extra in the mug as well. The options are endless. I put a few fresh strawberries in this mug right before I gave it as a gift.
The instructions are really simple. You just empty the little bag of cake mix into the mug and add 2 TBSP of water. After mixing, it will cook in the microwave for 1 minute.
That is it! A perfect little, individual cake.
Cut the strawberries to put on top and top that with a spoon of whipped cream!
This is a simple and sweet reminder to those we love that we see them as a gift to us. A perfect gift from HIM to us. You can use this individual cake as a gift for any number of occasions or simply as a loving treat.
Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
