Mini Layered Funfetti Cake

Mini Layered Funfetti Cake

Happy Sunday, everyone. I don’t usually do recipe posts on Sundays, but I couldn’t wait to share this one with you!

Do you ever find yourself in the mood for a sweet, spongy, and soft piece of cake on a whim? Sounds like a dream, right? Whipping up a whole cake (or even a whole batch of cupcakes) can be too much work, and even too much cake depending on who is going to be eating it.

This mini layered Funfetti cake is actually made in the microwave. Yup. It’s technically a mug cake. 

[Pause for all the *gasps*!]

Yeah. It was made in the microwave. I am not kidding you. And, it’s layered. And it only took about 30 minutes to make, most of which was mixing together ingredients.

What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to make it a “fancy” cake but also how easy it is to adapt it into a simple little cake. Sometimes we’re not in the mood (or don’t have the patience for) layered cakes, and we’d rather just bake and eat the cake as soon as possible. You can do that with this recipe.

It’s time to grab a tall glass of ice cold milk (or almond milk, or coconut milk, or whatever type of milk your heart desires!) and grab a slice of this mini layered Funfetti cake!

PopSugar Must Have, February 2015

PopSugar Must Have, February 2015

It’s unboxing time! My PopSugar Must Have box for February has finally arrived and I must say, it’s a pretty impressive box!

With Valentine’s Day being the theme this month, there’s no shortage of girly, romantic pink products in this box. Regardless of how you feel about Valentine’s Day, just about every girl can appreciate these amazing goodies.

Here’s what came in the box this month:

Tarte Cosmetics – Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush – $26

I have a feeling you’ve probably heard of this blush before. After all, it’s a top-rated cult product! This blush has Amazonian clay, which hydrates skin while giving your cheeks that rosy glow. How great is it that we got the full-size product? So worth it!

U.S. Apothecary – Rose Water Bubble Bath – $30 

This is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to a long, relaxing bubble bath if baths are your thing. This fragrant rose-scented bubble bath comes in a beautiful glass bottle that will make you do a double-take––it’s not alcohol, so don’t drink it!

ACME Party Box Company – Bamboo Heart Cutting Board & Cheese Knife – $32

This POPSUGAR Exclusive cheese board is perfect for February. I mean, it’s shaped like a heart! It came with a cute little cheese knife and burlap bag to stow everything away, making it portable or easily packable. Can’t wait to open some wine and put out some cheese on this board!

BaubleBar – Mini Arrow Pendant Necklace – $32 (Similar)

I received a silver mini arrow pendant necklace in my box, but some subscribers also received a gold version. While arrow pendant necklaces are pretty popular right now, there’s beauty in the pavé details that makes this particular one extra special.

Figs & Rouge – 100% Natural Balm – $8

Another product that varies from box to box, this natural balm is perfect to stow away even in small clutches! It’s flat, small size makes it light and easy to carry around. Here’s to hoping the Wild Cherry flavor is good!

Chuao Chocolatier – Ravishing Rocky Road Bar – $6

It’s not my first time getting a Chuao Chocolatier bar in a subscription box! One of my first Birchboxes back in 2012 had a sample size of the chocolate-covered potato chip. This particular chocolate bar has salted, caramelized almonds and fluffy marshmallows. Yum!

Sally Beauty – FingerPaints Nail Color – $5.50

This nail polish by Sally Beauty needs only one coat! I’m loving this deep, glittery red. The color is so intense, and it’s supposed to have a durable shine and long-lasting finish.

Overall, this box’s total value comes up to $139.50. That’s over three times what I paid for the box!
