This was a very inexpensive Christmas gift project that I gave to my children’s teachers that became an instant sweet treat. I was able to gather all the supplies at our local Dollar Store and collected holiday coffee cups at garage sales and thrift shops for a quarter a piece. Making the grand total for each coffee cup cupcake come in at the low price tag of a dollar.
16 non- zip baggies
Powdered egg substitute
1 package 2 1/4 oz Yellow or Devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup measuring cup
1/3 cup measuring cup
16 twist ties
Large Mixing Bowl

Handheld, single hole punch
My Printable labels below
Glaze mix of your choice below
2-2/3 cups confectioners’ sugar mixed with 1/4 cup strawberry drink mix OR cocoa powder.
Empty the cake mix of your choice into a large mixing bowl. Measure out a 1/2 cup of the dry mix into 8 separate baggies, along with 1 Tbsp of powdered egg substitute and twist tie the bags closed.
Print out the matching Cupcake Printable Tags . Cut out the cake mix label, hole punch the top and attach it to the baggies with ribbon.
Measure out 1/3 of a cup confectioners’ sugar into the remaining 8 baggies. Add to it 1-1/2 teaspoon of either strawberry drink mix or cocoa powder and give the bag a little shake to make up the glaze mix.
Print out the matching glaze mix labels. Cut out the label, hole punch the top and attach it to the baggies with ribbon.
Line up the eight coffee mugs. Place one cake mix and one glaze in each. Tie the bags together and cut out and attach the Cupcake directions to the two bags.
Tip- You can find the powdered egg substitute in most grocery stores. If you can’t, then in order to make the recipe they will have to use 1 egg yolk.
