Bake the birthday mug cake
Spray cooking spray in an 8 oz ramekin or large mug. Add batter to the ramekin and bake in the microwave at 70% for 90-120 seconds or until cake is set and springs back when you lightly touch the top. Oven instructions: Bake in an oven safe ramekin at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until set. Let cake cool while you move onto the frosting
Make keto buttercream frosting
To a medium bowl, add softened butter and cream for 2-3 minutes until light in color and fluffy. Slowly add in powdered sweetener and mix until combined. Add 2-4 tablespoons of heavy cream until desired consistency is achieved. Add vanilla and cream until fluffy.
Pipe the frosting & add birthday sprinkles
Slide knife around the edges of the ramekin to loosen the cake. Place a plate over the ramekin and flip to place cake on a plate. Add buttercream frosting to a piping bag and pipe frosting on the cake. You can cut your cake in half to make two cakes in order to make a two tired cake. Top with sugar free sprinkles.
I wanted to say I have made this twice now, and it’s so good for a birthday cake replacement. Today I used lemon extract for a twist.
