Mug Cake

Ingredients: 
1 box angel food cake mix 
1 box cake mix (vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, whatever you fancy)
Large zip lock bag 
Large mug or coffee cup
Water 
Microwave 

Directions: 
Dump both cake mixes in the zip lock bag. Shake and mix well. Measure 1/3 c cake mix and put in a mug. Add 3 tablespoons of water. Mix lightly (I used a fork). Microwave for 1 minute. Top with cool whip and you can add fruit or a topping. 

I guestimated that it's 2-3 points per mug cake.
