I found this wonderful recipe while cruising Pinterest recently and I wanted to try it out. Since the recipe is meant for individual treats at any time, I wanted to find a way to incorporate it as a gift.
My dear friend is having a baby shower this weekend and I am going to share this simple recipe with her along with a sample. I will also be sharing the recipe here at the bottom. So let’s gather our supplies:
- Milk Carton Cutting Files by Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs
- My Chances by Amanda Heimman
- Scoring Tools
- Sample of 1, 2, 3, cake
First, I clipped the papers that I wanted to use to Kelleigh’s template. After printing and cutting, I scored the lines on my milk carton.
Once it was scored, I finished cutting it out and assembled it. Tucked my sample inside and sealed it shut. (See even this part is pretty easy ;))
I also made up a card using the card template challenge posted by LuAnn, as well as a recipe card showing how to make your own 1, 2, 3 Cake.
I tucked the recipe card inside my card to my friend, but I also wanted to share the recipe with you as well.
These next few pictures are to show you the simple process and what the cake looks like once it is cooked.
First get a coffee cup, measuring spoons and your cake mix.
Measure 3 tablespoons of the mix with 2 tablespoons of water.
Then cook for 1 minute on high. This is what it will look like once done.
You can add a little dollop of whip cream or ice cream to it. I ate it just as it was. It was a very light tasting, but very satisfying treat.
