okay, i’m not here to do a whole three-part mug cake project like i did over here:
but i did use this book to make a mug cake yesterday, so i might as well post it and if, in the future, more mug cakes get made, well that will be just fine and i’ll share ’em just the same.
so – yesterday, i made a german chocolate mug cake for connor’s birthday. belated. i was away.
this is a “dump in a bowl” cake, not an “enjoy from the mug” cake, so –
different approaches to whipped cream application
this was a fun ‘welcome back to mug caking’ for me. there were some hiccups – i had to go to a whole ‘nother state for the chocolate, there was a CARAMEL EXPLOSION in the microwave while i was making the salted caramel sauce, also a cooking spray-nozzle mishap and a lot more dishes than you’d expect for a three-bite cake, but it tasted great – very dense and rich and plenty of flavor. mug cakes are always a little more trouble than they’re worth, but when they taste good, you can overlook the fact that it would have taken the same amount of effort to make a fullgrown cake.
belated birthday boy was pleased. and that’s all that matters.
and – because the mug itself is at least half the fun, and because i used two that hadn’t been used during mug cake project #1 WITHOUT EVEN MEANING TO – here they are:
for my cake
for connor’s cake
but what’s this?
it’s the mug that keeps on giving.
but is, sadly, now empty of mug cake.
i will probably make more from this book, but because i want to, not because some project is bossing me around…
