Strawberry Shortcake in a Mug

Background

If you haven't tried any of the cake-in-a-mug recipes that have been making the rounds, this is your chance.  They are great for cooking for one or two people  and children will find them great fun to try under  the supervision of a parent or grandparent.

Click on the link below and have a great time putting this together.  Eating one of these mug cakes isn't so bad, either!
