How to Create the Perfect Mug Cake Gift Set

Whether it’s Valentine’s Day, a special birthday or just because, it’s always nice to have the perfect gift for the ones you love. If you want a creative alternative to chocolates or gift cards, why not try something a little more personal this year?

Take your creativity to a whole new level with a personalised mug and sweet treat gift!

Here’s what you’ll need!

  • 1 – 2 mugs – you can create your own personalised ones here.
  • 1x glass jar
  • 1x print out of ingredients and instructions list
  • Ribbon or twine to decorate
  • Plain flower
  • Caster Sugar
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Baking Powder
  • Optional: Chocolate Chips

Step 1: Measure out your ingredients

First step is to gather the dry ingredients. You will need to measure out each item – here is a list of the amounts for each item you will need:

  • 8 Tbsp plain flour
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 8 Tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1 handful of Chocolate Chips (optional)

Step 2: Put dry mix together into jar

Once you have all of your dry ingredients together, it’s time to start packaging up. Take your jar – you can purchase one from a homeware or $2 shop. 

Place each ingredient – one at a time, into the jar. This will create a nice layered effect. For the most visual layers place them into the jar in the above order.

Step 3: Add your personal touches


Once the ingredients are in, seal up your jar. Add some twine and/or ribbon of choice around the neck of your jar to decorate.

Tip: Match this with the colours in your mug for the full affect

Attach a print out which included a list of the ingredients in the jar, the additional ingredients required and the instructions on how to cook the mug cake. We have designed one for you already, you can download it here.

Tip: Purchase the wet ingredient required so the recipient can make their cakes as soon as they receive their gift!
