Looking for a unique gift that shows how much you care? Simply place individual portions of this cake mix and glaze mix into plastic bags and dress them up in special microwave-safe mugs.

What You'll Need:
  • CAKE MIX:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 1 (4-serving) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • GLAZE MIX:
  • 2 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar

  2. In a medium bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and cocoa mix.
     
  3. Divide cake mix evenly into 8 small plastic bags, about 1/2 cup each; seal and label "Cake Mix." Do the same with glaze mix, packing about 1/3 cup mix in each bag; seal and label "Glaze Mix."
     
  4. Make individual microwave Fudgy "Cup" Cakes (below), or pack the mixes to give as gifts (below).
