Enjoy a fun little treat with this colorful, easy and tasty vanilla mug cake! Who says vanilla has to be boring? Let’s keep the great taste we love and create a rainbow of colors with it.
Making a vanilla mug cake is easy as 1-2-3 or in our case 3-2-1. With 3 tablespoons of cake mix, 2 tablespoons of water and just a minute in the microwave, you have yourself a warm and delicious piece of cake.
Adding color to a vanilla mug cake
Since we are all about making life more fun, we figure, why stop with just vanilla though?
Instead, we added a fun rainbow twist to this simple dessert. We packed a mug full of color and magic! You and the kids are sure to have a blast creating these colorful culinary creations.
And if rainbows are inspiring you today, here are a number of other rainbow food posts to run to:

- Rainbow sweet potato pie
- Rainbow grilled cheese
- Rainbow pickled veggies
- Rainbow soda bar

We obviously have a thing with making food colorful and fun. ;)
