A new baby. The only reason you need to throw a little celebration.  And you know I cannot let my party guest leave without a little something in their hands. This little mug cake was really easy to throw together. Perfect for a hostess gift or for your next party favor.

I purchased these glass mugs at the dollar store. Make sure whatever mug you chose is microwave safe. A cute ramekin would also be great. Line the mugs with a plastic bag. In assembly line fashion…fill the bags with the dry ingredients for the baby mug cake. (recipe is below)

Attach a cute tag with the instructions. Tie up bags with some fun ribbon and that is it! Best part is you can make these a few days ahead of time…so no rushing around:)

DIY party favor: Dry dip mix recipe

You know how I love a useful party favor… this one is yummy too! I researched and tested a few recipes…and tweaked a few here and there…and came up with this Bacon bite dip mix. It is best when made the day before you are going to serve it…to let the flavors come together. You still have time to throw this together for your Thanksgiving feast:)

To package…use some plastic bags, kraft paper, burlap ribbon and a tag for instructions (and ingredients). I printed my tags and folded them over the tops of the bags. I made labels for the back to explain directions and what was inside ;) Tag for the ingredients and directions to make dip should read : Bacon Bite Dip Mix: mix packet with 8oz cream cheese and chill until ready to serve. (bacon,onion,garlic, beef bouillon)

Here is the dry dip mix: 2 T bacon bits, 1 tsp beef bouillon, 1 T minced onion, 1/8 t minced garlic.

Another cute way to present these would be to get a sleeve on crackers in a tall container and attach the dip to the side. A great neighbor gift too!

** You can make this up to a week in advance. No need to keep in the fridge…the bacon bits are dried out.
