With dozens of mouthwatering recipes, there is something to please every taste. It's all here, from basic Buttermilk Cake, Red Velvet, and Carrot Cake to fancy Chocolate Caramel Fleur de Sel. Let the kids try their hand at S'mores and Root Beer Float cakes. Then send them to bed and try the liquor-infused recipes from the Adults Only chapter (Irish Coffee Cake, anyone?). There are recipes for cake lovers with special dietary needs, and even noncake recipes like mug puddings, pies, and cheesecakes, when you get tired of cake (yes...it can happen!).

I am much more of a salty/carbs type of girl, but sometimes you just want something SWEET!! I don't like to make big cakes and desserts very often as we usually don't end up finishing them (I hate throwing half a cake away!), and we don't like for any of us--including our kids--to have a lot of sugar. These are perfect. Super quick and easy, and just the right amount to give everyone a little something sweet. Lots of great combinations. I tried the yellow cake first as I figured if the very basic of basics didn't come out right, it probably wasn't going to go well on the fancier ones! The whole famiy loved it! Most recipes make enough for two mug cakes which split nicely between the 6 of us. The cake was moist and had a great flavor. It's probably a tad heavier than a regular cake, but not by much. The chocolate mayonnaise cake was everything it should have been. I'm ready to branch out now. I just made the Nutella Cake. Oh my, my my!! A MUST for anyone that likes Nutella! I'm thinking of trying the lemon thyme cake next. This is such a fun book! Lots of lovely flavors with something for everyone. Many recipes for toppings and garnishes, and a section of &quot;not exactly cakes&quot; that includes Lindy's-Style Mug Cheesecake (can't wait to try that one!), Pumpkin Mug Pie, Lemon Bar Mug and more. Definitely a sweet little book to add to my favorites shelf! I received a copy of this book from St. Martin's Press for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I've made three of the recipes so far and they turned out great. Very nice to be able to make a little snack like this without making an entire cake and with very little effort. Book also includes recipes for one or two servings of frosting and other toppings, which is great.

I was so excited to get this book but I never got a chance to try any of the recipes out because in the classic excuse of my dog ate my homework.... my cat vomited all over the book! I had left the beautiful, yummy looking book on my bed. I had been browsing through it before leaving for work. Unfortunately my eldest cat decided to spew all over my bed and book while I was at work which gave it ample time to soak through all the pages. The book was a total loss. I'm debating buying another one. How could you go wrong when the cover looks so deliciously good? Mug cakes in minutes and in your microwave! How cool is that? Pretty darn cool!
