DIY Dotted Sharpie mug

Hi everyone! I made this super cute dotted sharpie mug for my 11 year old sister, Emma, for Christmas. She loved it, but then she dropped it and it broke. I decided to make a new one for her. The only thing is last time, I used normal Sharpies, instead of Sharpie Paint pens, so I got to use more colors and I didn’t bake it. I didn’t want the sharpie to wash off, so I used spray on mod-podge to seal it and it ended up blending the colors and making a cool underwater effect… And, then she broke it. 🙂 (I would advise not doing the normal sharpie, mod-podge thing though 🙂 )

Materials:

Directions:

    1. Draw your design on the mug.
    2. Let dry for a couple hours or overnight.
    3. Bake for 30 mins at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. REMEMBER to put the mug before it heats up and leave it in until it’s completely cooled to prevent cracking.

Care and wash:

Hand wash the mug gently to make it last longer. The dishwasher may ruin the design.

Enjoy!

 

Chocolate chip mug cake

First of all, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Ok now back to the post. 🙂 I love chocolate chip cookies, especially crispy! I made this Chocolate Chip Mug Cake and it was pretty good! If you have them, I would use milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet though if you like it sweet.craftsandcupcakesmug cake

Here is the recipe

I found this recipe at: http://kirbiecravings.com/2015/09/chocolate-chip-mug-cake.html

Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp. semi sweet chocolate chips ( or you can use milk chocolate)

Directions

  1. Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in mug. This is a small mug cake so you will want to use an 8 oz. mug. Mix with a small whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Mix in half of the chocolate chips, sprinkle the other half on top.
  2. Put in microwave. The recipe said to cook for a minute but I thought 50 seconds worked better.

Enjoy!
