Simple Gooey Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake.

February 10, 2018 0

Ever want cake for one? Look no further…

And the countdown to the release of my stop motion short, A Love Story begins!

Believe it or not, this cake was made in the microwave.

I’ve always been a huge fan of cinnamon rolls. And what better way to kick off the countdown than with a cinnamon roll mug cake.

This mug cake is the perfect balance of sweetness and gooey-ness. Think of a soufflé-like texture for the cake and a perfectly sweetened royal icing. Simply yum 🙂

And with that, I’ll see you tomorrow for Day 2 of the countdown!
