I got the following recipe in an email today. It is so simple and versatile I had to share it. I was thinking of using the Prep Bowls to demo it in.

3, 2, 1 CAKE

These individual little cakes are amazing and ready to eat in one minute! They are perfect
for whenever you feel like a treat without all the fat and calories that cake can have. Genius idea!

INGREDIENTS: 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix1 box Cake Mix - Any Flavour 2 Tbsp Water Makes 1 serving.

DIRECTIONS: In a Ziploc bag, combine the two cake mixes together and mix well. For each individual cake serving, take out 3 Tablespoons of the cake mix combination and mix it with 2 Tablespoons of water in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, and you have your own instant individual little cake! KEEP remaining cake mixture stored in the Ziploc bag and use whenever you feel like a treat! You can top each cake with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping and/or some fresh fruit.

Helpful Tips:This recipe is called 3, 2, 1 Cake because all you need to remember is:3 tablespoons mix
2 tablespoons water
1 minute in the microwave TRY various flavours of cake mix like carrot, red velvet, pineapple, lemon, orange, etc. Just remember that one of the mixes has to be the angel food mix; the other is your choice.
The flavour possibilities are endless! NOTES:
The best thing is, you open both cake mixes into a gallon storage bag, one that 'zip locks' or 'self-seals', or a container that seals tightly, shake the two cake mixes to blend and then make the recipe. Storage of mix is simple, put it on a shelf. No need to refrigerate, since the mix is dry.

Would our large Leakproof Container be big enough to store the mix? Great cross-sell with the prep bowls.

I forgot the ask - do you use the small prep bowls, and do you have to spray them? Can you double it and use the bigger bowls?

What about the oil, eggs and such? Don't need them?

I think that is where the Angel Food cake mix comes in.....you only add water to them. The other cake mix gives you flavors. Besides, you would be surprised how often you DO NOT need to use them. I made brownies theother day with JUST applesauce instead of the egg and oil! Couldnt tell the difference.

And since it's angel food cake, you definitely don't want to grease the cups as the tiniest bit of grease will cause a massive fail for an angel food cake. This sounds like an awesome dessert and I am going to try it soon - I love angel food cake but can easily eat way too much of it. This has the benefit of automatic portion control.

To answer some of the questions- mmilus is correct that greasing the pan will cause the angel food cake to fail. And all you need is water. The angel food mix allows for it to be so simple.

As to the leak proof container I would think the 8.25 cup one would work....I'm not sure though...I know the small batter bowl will hold it without a doubt.

And mmilus I love you that it has portion control....I have been known to make a red velvet cake and eat half of a 9x13 pan by myself lol :)
