You know how mini things are cuter? Seriously though, FACT: small things are cuter. Little puppies, mini pencils, bite-sized appetizers, donut holes, dessert plates, babies. And I’d like to say that cakes you can make in mugs are in this same realm. Single-serving things adorable and especially tasty.

You are also welcome to top these cakes with any combination of delicious confections your can dream up. I went for the powdered sugar, caramel sauce and pecans but I was ***this close*** to smothering them in cream cheese frosting.
