DiY – Hostess Gift from Homemaking Delight

By default, I prepare goodies for all the occasions. As this is festival season, I want to try something unique for my hostess gift for a recent party. I was impressed with the pre-packed mug gift set in the stores, so I thought of preparing it with my special personal touch (Hoorrayyy to Shopping 😉). How would the word “Dessert” sound after a long tiresome day? (Of course, a dessert that you don’t have to prepare). 😀 So, I put together all the dry ingredients for a microwave coffee cake to treat them with a warm dessert that they can prepare in just 2 minutes at any time they like. Try this DiY for your next party & your hostess will be grinning from ear to ear because of happiness. Over to hostess gift DiY – Return gift for parties from Home-Making Delight..
