6. 2-Ingredient Soda Pop Cupcakes

Hardest part: Dividing the batter into 24 individual cupcake cups instead of dumping it into 2 cake pans.

Cheat it by: Putting the batter in cake pans and baking for 35 to 40 minutes instead of 15 to 18 minutes.

Here's the recipe.


12. Pistachio Pudding Bundt Cake

Hardest part: Making a well in the middle of your dry ingredients to hold your wet ingredients.

Cheat it by: Dumping those wet ingredients in the damn bowl wherever you please and mixing everything together.

Here's the recipe.

14. 3-Ingredient Strawberry Cream Cake

Hardest part: Whipping the cream into fresh whipped cream. (Which really isn't too hard and might be worth it, taste-wise, but does require a little bit of time)

Cheat it by: Using store-bought whipped cream or Cool Whip.

Here's the recipe.

15. Funfetti Mug Cake

Hardest part: Same as the other mug cake in this article: mixing 2 boxes of cake mix together before putting them in your mug.

Cheat it by: Adding 1 1/2 tablespoons of each cake mix to your mug, instead of 3 tablespoons of the combined mixes.

Here's the recipe.

16. 3-Ingredient Creamsicle Cake

Hardest part: Grating orange zest for the batter and making that little decorative curl.

Cheat it by: Skipping the orange zest and peel completely, and maybe adding a teaspoon of orange extract in the batter, if you really feel like it.

Here's the recipe.
