Mug Cake

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

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.
