Tie-Dye Cake in a Mug

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   Your mom deserves something more than a card on Mother’s Day, so surprise her with a cake in a mug and top it off with flowers to look like an arrangement. These cakes only take a minute and a half to bake, and there isn’t any messy cleanup because you can mix the ingredients right in the cup.

Tie-Dye Cake in a Mug


  • 16 Tablespoons boxed vanilla cake mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 Tablespoons water
  • Cooking spray (canola or vegetable)
  • Food coloring (three colors)
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Flowers

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. Coat the inside of your mug with cooking spray. Add cake mix, egg, oil and water to the mug. Be sure that it’s large enough that the batter only fills it halfway.
  2. Stir until the batter is smooth (no clumps!)
  3. Split the batter evenly into three small bowls or cups. Add food coloring and mix to combine.
  4. Pour your darkest color in the bottom of the mug. Drizzle the second color on top, covering the first color as much as possible. Add the last color, then place the mug in the microwave for one and a half minutes. It will puff up then sink down.
  5. Once the cake has cooled, frost the top. Then add a few stems or cover the entire cake with blooms to create a gorgeous arrangement.


  • Cooking spray is helpful but not totally necessary. For those of you who like to scrape the edges of the pan, ditch the spray. Add your ingredients, then get an arm workout mixing the batter. It takes a bit to get the clumps out — we recommend using a fork or a mini whisk.
