Cake In A Cup- Meet Pastry Chef Breanna! (Guest Post)

Hey there!  It's Thursday and I am linking up with Mama Kat for her Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop.  Are you?

Assignment: Create an "instructional" post where you show readers how to do something cool or useful or yummy.

I thought long and hard about what FAN-tabulous, yummy instructional post I could share with everyone. You know, given my vast knowledge and all...

I came up B-L-A-N-K.  Shocking.  I know! 

But then I remembered that my niece Breanna, A.K.A. Pastry Chef In Training, has been cookin' us up some DE-licious chocolate cake in a cup the last few days. All. By. Herself.  She's 9!  Can I get a "You Go Girl"?!?!  (If what "they" say is true, that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, she's gonna have her CHOICE of beaus later on in life...MUCH LATER...with skills like these in the kitchen!)

Pastry Chef Breanna has graciously agreed to complete a pictorial guest post to show you just how easy this treat is to make in ONLY 9 Steps...from start to finish!
