  • How to bake a cake. Diy Coffee Mug Gift Baskets - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your supplies... coffee mugs of your choice, coasters (I spray painted some I found at the thrift store), pretty forks, napkins, a cute card to write the directions for the recipient.

    Step 2

    Make the mug cake mix (recipe follows) and write the recipe on a cute card:

    - Mix Angel Food cake mix and your choice of flavor cake mix (I used Pillsbury Funfetti)
    - Put both in a large ziplock bag and mix well (this can be kept in the freezer).

    For your mug gift sets put 3 tablespoons of this mixture into each baggie (you may want to put more in your baggie depending on the size of the mug you choose. I would test it out in a similar size mug. Remember to adjust the water amount if you do that!)

    Directions to write on the recipe card:

    - Pour the cake mix into the mug.
    - Stir in 2 tablespoons water; mix well.
    - Microwave on high, 1 minute.

    You can make different variations without cake mix. For example, add honey, tea, tissues, and cough drops for a sick friend!
