3 2 1 magic mug cake collageThis is such an easy “recipe” (if you could even call it that) that you might not even believe that it actually works.  It’s called 3, 2, 1 Cakes or 3, 2, 1 Magic Mug Cakes as I call them.  I’ve seen it posted in several places but the first place I saw it was on The Hidden Pantry.  It’s called 3, 2, 1 Magic Mug Cake for obvious reasons.  To make a 3, 2, 1 cake you combine a whole box of angel food cake mix with a whole box of any other flavor cake mix in a gallon baggie.  That’s the basic mix.  Then to prepare the cake here’s the recipe.
In a mug combine-
3 Tablespoon of cake mix
2 Tablespoons of water
Mix until well blended
Microwave for 1 minute
Viola!  It’s that easy!  Each service makes a little mug cake for one.
You can top it any way you like.  Put some chocolate chips on top as soon as it comes out of the microwave and after a few minutes they will be melted and you can spread it over the top.  Or top with whipped cream, frosting, sprinkles, fruit, or anything else you like.

3 2 1 Magic Mug CakeI took the 3, 2, 1 Magic Mug Cakes to a new level with this gift idea.  We made a mug for Father’s Day but this would make a great gift idea for teacher appreciation, end of the year, Mother’s Day, thank you, and just about any other occasion.  We decorated a mug but you can purchase any mug you like for the gift.  Then mix up a batch of 3, 2, 1, Magic Mug Cake mix and put it into a plastic baggie or cellophane bag as shown above.  I then put that cellophane bag into another cellophane bag because the first one gets some cake mix towards the top and it looked a little too powdery.  I just twisted the top of the first bag and pushed it down inside the second bag.  (see picture)  Tie with ribbon, add directions like in my poem above, and add a measuring spoon to make it easy for the gift recipient.  You can even add a small water bottle with it to really make it easy.   Feel free to add a baggie of various toppings like chocolate chips, candies, sprinkles, etc.  The gift recipient will thank you for it!

Endless hours of “edu-tainment” is what these awesome DVD’s are all about! If you are a picky mom like myself then you’d probably have to agree that a lot of cartoons and kid TV shows now days are kind of empty and blah.  Well, that’s not the case for the “LET’S LEARN” series by Nickelodeon; whether it is ABC’s or 1,2,3’s these knowledge packed episodes are sure to enrich the minds of our little ones.

Embark on all kinds of fun-filled adventures with your favorite Nickelodeon characters such as Dora the Explorer, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, Go Diego Go, Wonder Pets and many others!
It really is shocking to witness the development of a kinds mind at any age, but even more shocking when they are still babies.  My husband and I were so shocked to see our 16 month old girl get in the rhythm of things and pick up different messages from these series!
I am amazed to see her learn the different music to the shows and be able to recognize the different characters and the kind of positive moods and happy feedback she receives from the visuals and audio from all the different episodes, she truly goes crazy with all the Dora The Explorer songs.

Whether you have a hyper 6 year old or a little 8 month old you definitely can’t go wrong with Nickelodeons’ “Let’s Learn our ABC’s” and “Let’s Learn our 123’s”.  It will bring joy and fun learning to your homes in a way that they truly think they are just watching their favorite cartoons!

I received the DVDs for free to conduct my review.  The statements expressed by me in this post are my own personal and honest opinions of this product.
