You’re My Little Cupcake
This is your lucky day. Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day. What more could you ask for?
Cupcakes are in, and today they should be in your tummy. A cupcake is little cake you can call your own. You can poke it, prod it, lick it, nibble it, or gobble it down because it’s all yours!
Here’s a perfect way to treat yourself to a cupcake whenever you’re craving one. It’s as simple as 3-2-1 Cupcake!
1 box of Angel Food Cake mix
1 box of any flavor cake mix – chocolate is my flavor of choice
Combine the two mixes in a gallon Ziploc® bag.
For a true “cup cake”…
Put 3 tablespoons of cake mix into a microwave-safe cup.
Put 2 tablespoons of water into the cup.
Stir well to combine.
Microwave on high for 1 minute.
Voilà! A perfect little “cup cake.”
For an extra delicious treat, I added some whipped topping and a raspberry. Store the bag of cake mix for a “cup cake” treat anytime!
Now please excuse me while I indulge myself!
Take a bite out of one these yummy cupcake books.
