How to; Cake in a cup

I couldn't help it; while naming this I kept singing "Cake in box cup"LOL

I found myself home alone one day wanting to bake a cake, but the boys would be gone for a few so, why bake a cake that I likely won't eat but a little bit so satisfy my sweet tooth. 

You'll need:
1. Cake mix (I use anything on sale)
2. Water (just enough for a smooth consistency)
3. Microwave
4. Microwavable safe coffee cup
5. Frosting
6. Fork (for mixing)

First thing first; but the mix in the cup (1/2 the cup should fill the cup). Make sure to leave enough room for frosting.
Mix w/ a couple of Tablespoons of water until its nice and gooey
Feel free to mix it in the same cup you plan to eat out of. What does it matter? you can do whatever you please!


Microwave from anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 min. depending on your microwave (start at lowest cooking point, increasing if needed)


Let the cake cool down (my house smells of carrot cake heaven. YUM!)


Frost! 

ENJOY!

Carrot Cake in a Cup w/ cheese cake frosting

This is so easy and takes a total w/ cooking time of maybe 7 mins. 

I've made this many times for the boys and their friends. This summer more then usual. 
This would also fit nicely at a small dinner party. Oh what fun!!

There are many ways of re-creating this. Get bold and let me know what you've done. 
I'm thinking this week it'll be RED velvet cake in a cup. Yummy for the tummy!
