Funfetti Birthday Cake Mug Cake - a delicious vanilla flavour cake scattered with rainbow sprinkles and topped with white chocolate all cooked in a mug in the microwave in just a few minutes.
Over this side of the Atlantic, we seem to have an obsession with all things birthday cake flavoured and let's face it, we are definitely on to a good thing because birthday cake anything is just one of those things that seem to bring out the inner child in all of us.
There is ice cream, oreo's, frozen yoghurt, m&m's, fruit loops, bear paws, the list goes on. If it's a sweet treat, you can guarantee there will be a birthday cake flavoured version.
One of my favourite ice cream places is Cold Stone Creamery, and I first got introduced to that place some many years ago now, in Hawaii on my honeymoon all the way back in 2005. If you have never been or heard of Cold Stone Creamery. Is basically an ice cream parlour, you pick your ice cream flavour, then choose your mix in's and it's all mixed together on a cold marble slab - hence the 'Cold Stone" name.
Can guess what my favourite flavour is from there? The Birthday Cake remix of course, which combines Cake Batter flavoured ice cream with rainbow sprinkles, brownie and fudge. I wouldn't like to guess the calories in one of those and it's been quite a few years since I had one of those, but I still get the cravings for birthday cake flavoured things and so it's important to have a low calorie Funfetti Birthday Cake to enjoy when I fancy a treat.
Luckily the delicious icecream by Halo Top do a great Birthday Cake flavour which is prob my favourite out of all of the flavours available. You can read my Halo Top Ice Cream review for full details with values.
As well as that I also have this amazing Cake Batter Frozen Yoghurt.
But one thing I really wanted was cake, a birthday cake, with sprinkles and that yummy vanilla flavour, so just knew I had to attempt a microwave Funfetti Birthday Cake Mug Cake

It took a bit of experimenting to get my mug cakes just right, I hate cakes that are overly eggy or just don't have the right texture and let's face it there are many low calorie cakes out there, that just are not worth wasting your calories on.
However these mug cakes really are to die for, and this Funfetti Birthday Cake Mug Cake, may just be the best new addition to my selection.
If you love cake, it is totally worth spending those extra few calories for this, because it seriously is that good. My kids love this and I have had to make it several times before even getting a chance to type this up, but it's a great way to test out the recipe and make sure it is perfect every time and it certainly is.
Just bear in mind that not all microwaves are the same, mine is 1000 watts, so the cooking time is based on that, it may vary for different wattages.
