    Default Mugs for chocolate cake recipe


    One of our most prestigious and highly respected rfc-ers took pity on
    me when I whined about not having any suitable mugs in which to make
    the 5 minute coffee mug cake and offered to send me some mugs.

    In today's mail was a box with 3 mugs in it. Wahooo!!! now I can make
    more than one cake at a time.
    The mugs and their traveling companions arrived in great shape along
    with the cookbook Pierre Franey's Cooking in France. This is the first
    and only French cookbook I've ever had and I'm thrilled to be the new
    owner of it.

    SWEET!!!!! I'm green (but not "pea" green <G>) with envy! In a very fun
    and sincere way, "aren't you special" <----- using the Dana Carvey SNL
    "church lady" voice <VBG>. I love the photo and the companions are
    oh-so-cute!!! The photo, as usual, is great ;> Hehehe, I bet Chris is
    green about the cookbook too, eh??? Er, if she doesn't have it already,
    that is!

    Sky, who thinks Koko is one lucky Lady!

    koko,

    I can't tell if the gold looking top on two of those mugs is a continuation
    of the interior color, or if it's gold trim. If it's gold trim watch it the
    first time you use it, it may arc in the mw oven.

    If it does you could just put an open ziploc type plastic bag over the mug.
    That would allow the mircrowaves to still reach the contents, or if you're
    feeling "crafty" coat the gold trim with a clear coating - maybe fingernail
    polish? Either way will work fine.

    I'd count on doing something if it's gold trim. Even if it doesn't arc now,
    if its protective coating gets scratched or abraded off from washing (or
    digging mightily with a spoon to get the last of that cake! ) it will
    begin to arc later.

    Boli, I noticed the same thing about the possible gold trim on two of
    the mugs, but I wasn't sure. So, the trick with using an inverted
    ziploc-type plastic bag over the top prevents metallics on mugs from
    arcing??? I've never heard of that trick, and it might be very handy
    when I make mochas in decorated mugs that have gold trim/lettering/etc.
    Thanks

    Sky, who never knew!

    Thanks Boli. I was planning on using the middle one for the cake, no
    gold trim. The Ralph Lauren Wedgewood Polo Bear on the right will be
    my new a.m. coffee mug. The Eskimo one will be perfect for hot
    chocolate. I can see it with a big marshmallow sitting on top.
