Loco Kids: Cake in a Cup

No, no…it’s not your morning Joe, it’s cake!  We are absolutely loving Cake in a Cup.  We made it for the first time at a neighborhood bonfire, and the kids loved having their own individual cakes.  The best part, they help make it and there’s no oven involved. 

*Disclaimer…I took these pics with my camera phone since we were “in the moment” and my camera was no where to be found.
