It is almost hard for me to believe that another school year has come to a completion. This is a bittersweet time of year! Many parents like myself are faced with a range of mixed emotions as their children enter a new chapter in their lives, whether it is heading to the next grade after summer break or graduating and venturing off to college. How time flies! I experience a mixture of emotions with every transition in my life. But, I’m experiencing them even more since it seems like it was yesterday when I was preparing my son for kindergarten. It’s challenging to grasp the fact that he’ll be starting middle school in the late summer. Meanwhile, the bundle of joy that I brought home 5 years ago will be starting kindergarten.
These bittersweet yet monumental moments remind me how fleeting life is and to enjoy every single second of it. There are days when my children keep me on my toes, but they keep me young and happy. There is hardly a day without joy and laughter! There are also days where they’ll do something that’s either frustrating or confusing. I can never forget that I was once a child, though.
My mom has always said that children will tug on your apron strings when they’re young and how they’ll eventually tug on your heartstrings when they’re older. I never truly understood what she meant how true it was until I had children of my own. Therefore, I cherish their limited years of childhood, because there will be a day that my children will be on their own, venturing adulthood. And, I’ll miss those days that they were mine. This is why I believe in celebrating every moment, however monumental or mundane that moment may be.
One of my favorite ways of celebrating those moments is baking for my loved ones, especially during the cooler seasons. In the warmer seasons, turning the oven on is the last thing on my mind! That’s where Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 comes into play.
Celebrating Those Sweet Moments with Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1
Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 is available in 18 different flavors, including scrumptious flavors like S’mores Cake, Pineapple Cake, and Decadent Chocolate Lover’s Cake. Each flavor is ready within a minute with a fresh-baked taste – no oven required. You don’t have to worry about leftovers or cleaning up bakeware since the serving size is ideal for a mug.
The serving size also makes it perfect for little ones! Additionally, you can customize and experiment with nearly any liquid and add-ins like fruit, nuts, grated coconut, and chocolate chips. You can even top it off with ice cream or frosting. It is essentially fail-proof!
Duncan Hines is the only brand I buy. That is what my mom always used when I was growing up, so that is what I use, too!

I wish they made a gluten-free version because this sounds like a great treat to have at the end of a rough day. I certainly love to have a nice dessert in the evening while I’m watching my favorite TV show .

Seems like just yesterday all our children were little. After that the hectic teenage years. Now they are married with children of their own. I agree heating up the oven is the last thing on our minds when it is 96 degrees out like it has and will be all week. Still like a sweet now and then.
Wish we got Duncan Hines in Australia – this looks SO good! I’ll have to try next time I’m in the states!

OMG!! MUG CAKES!!! I love mug cakes! I haven’t seen them since I was a child! Thank you Duncan Hines for bring it back! I can’t wait to make these for my kids!
I’ve heard so much about Duncan Hines! I think it’s awesome that you can have a lovely dessert without making a huge batch and without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s perfect! And it’s a nice way to treat yourself.

Yes please! Duncan Hines makes some wonderful mixes, but sometimes you just don’t need to bake a whole cake. This product looks awesome and I can’t wait to try it.
I trust Duncan Hines. It is the only brand I know has the flavor and quality I want for my family.
Duncan Hines has always had awesome products! I have wanted to try these for one products, but I don’t have a microwave lol

I love Duncan Hines cakes so I’m going to have to try this. I have a major sweet tooth at times and this would be perfect.
I love the Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 treats! I’ve tried the Chocolate Lovers, Carrot Cake and Confetti Cake (I have a bit of a sweet tooth, haha), and they are all soooo good!

Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 is exactly what I need for those nights you do not want to make a whole cake. I will have to pick some up this weekend. I am sure it will be a hit.
We have been buying these and working our way through the flavors! I love having the brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! The kids have been having fun making these too.

I love a good Duncan Hines recipe! mMy kids love it more. Thanks for this recipe tip and I will for sure be checking it out.
That mug is gorgeous. Where did you get it? And OMG — that dessert looks delicious! Glad they are making mug cakes now 🙂
Thank you! I’m honestly not sure where this mug came from since it was a gift, but I wish I knew since I wouldn’t mind having a couple more like it. 🙂
I loved this brand when I was a kid. I like their chocolate frosting best, so yummy!

I once made a cake in mug from scratch. As much fun as it was to make, it was also kind of a pain. This looks like a much quicker way to get my sweet, chocolate fix.

I love the idea of baking a little cake in the mug! This is so cute!
This looks delicious. I have been seeing these around lately. I need to pick this up and make some too! They sure look good.
I have one of these in our pantry. I need to try it when my kids go to bed. They want everything that I have. I bought these because I have a sweet tooth. Since I am working on losing weight again, I try not to keep a ton of sweets in the house. It is so easy to end up overeating without thinking about it. These are perfect because I can satisfy my sweet tooth if I have enough calories left without worrying about the rest of the cake sitting in the house calling my name. 🙂

This is my favorite and I already missed it! My husband also do love it. It’s really delicious and fantastic.
I think those cakes for one is the greatest idea. One serving no leftovers, no cake to keep eating after its done. I will definitely look for these.
