1. Tear open an Earl Grey tea bag. Measure ½ teaspoon of the tea leaves and combine with 1 tablespoon of hot water in a small cup. Set aside.

2. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in the Chip mug. Use a fork to stir all the dry ingredients together until thoroughly mixed and no lumps remain. 

3. Add milk, oil, vanilla, and tea mixture (tea and tea leaves) to the dry ingredients. Stir together to form a batter. Cook in the microwave for 90 seconds, then remove from the microwave and let sit for 5 minutes before decorating.

4. To make the grey stuff topping, gently mix whipped cream with cookie crumbles. Dollop the grey stuff on top of the mug cake, then decorate with pearl sprinkles and a red rose icing decoration. 

5. Enjoy!


About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
