This is a single serving gift in a mug. A nice Idea for anyone who needs a quick gift that is small. Good for anyone who lives alone or needs a small gift for a group of people. Prep and mic time is about 5 minutes total. Save any left over cake mix and make your own at home also

    Put the mug in the microwave on high and set the timer for 3 minutes
    As it bakes, a cylinder of cake will start to rise out of the mug. But it goes back down afterwards.
    Serve with icing.
    To make icing put contents of baggie marked icing in a small dish and mix with enough water to make it barely spreadable. It will turn to glaze on the hot cake.
