I have an exciting product review and giveaway to tell you about today.

You know how much I love my mug cakes. Well, I recently sampled the Mugging! line by Shirley J.  Think box cake mix meets mug cakes. Cake mix flavors are packaged into individual servings that can be made in the microwave. Genius right?

I think my made-from-scratch mug cakes are already pretty easy, but these mug cakes are even easier. Most of them require only that you add a few tablespoons of water to the mix, whisk, and it’s ready to go in the microwave. 90 seconds later, your cake is ready.

While at the UTC food court recently, we passed by the new location for Cupcakes Squared.

I had heard of Cupcakes Squared and had even tried some mini cupcakes once during a work event. I remember liking them, so we decided to stop for some treats to bring home.

They had 6 cupcake flavors available, many already prepackaged, and you can get mini ones or full sized ones. I’m not sure if the main location has more flavors available daily, but six seemed too little. I decided to get a set of four minis and one regular cupcake.

Since the cupcakes here are square shaped rather than round, they have these special wrappers which fold up to cover each of the four edges. I liked these wrappers, as you could unwrap one side a time and made it easier to access the bottom of the cupcake.

For the minis, I chose vanilla, chocolate, s’more, and lemon.

I’ve been a bit obsessed with coconut lately, which inspired me to want to try making Piña colada popsicles, even though I’ve never even tried making the drink.

Luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand and even made myself a big tall drink too with some of the leftovers. This tropical ice pop is perfect for summer. And if you want to make them kid friendly, you can just leave out the rum.
