MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day:   If you’re a DIY family, Unicorn Mugs Cakes are perfect for a Mother’s Day project. Not a lot of mess, just a whole lot of delicious fun!

Unicorn Mug Cakes for Mother’s Day


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (divided)
  • 6 Tbsp white sugar (divided)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder (divided)
  • 3/4 cup milk (divided)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (divided)
  • food coloring
  • 4 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil (divided)
  • 6 tsp sprinkles (divided)
  • vanilla cake frosting
  • various colorful candies, chocolates, sprinkles, etc

Directions (make in your MogoBox Mug):

  1. In three separate bowls, mix the dry ingredients together. Note that the amounts listed above are the total amounts needed to make all three mug cakes. To each bowl, add 1/4 cup flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Form a well in the middle.
  2. Add the wet ingredients – to each bowl add 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 drops of food coloring, 1 1/2 Tbsp vegetable oil, and 2 tsp sprinkles. Mix until just combined. We used a different food coloring for each bowl: pink, purple, and blue.
  3. Spoon the batter into the mugs, alternating between the colors for a fun unicorn pattern.
  4. One at a time, put into the microwave for about 2 minutes at the 7/10 heat setting. This can vary depending on your microwave, so keep an eye on it to test when it’s ready.
  5. Time to decorate! We used store-bought cake frosting to decorate the tops. Add food coloring to make this swirly pastel pattern.
  6. Finally, pile the candy on top! We used colorful chocolates, sugar-coated marshmallows, and a cotton candy stick as the unicorn horn.


  • We also made an extra mug cake previously and crumbled that up on top of this cake – if you want to do this, use the recipe listed above but divide the amounts by three so that you only mix up one extra mug cake.
