A “cake in a mug” is a variant that gained popularity on many internet cookingforums and mailing lists. The technique uses a mug as its cooking vessel and can be done in a microwave oven. The recipe often takes fewer than five minutes to prepare.
A butterfly cake is a variant of cupcake, also called fairy cake for its fairy-like “wings”. They can be made from any flavor of cake. The top of the fairy cake is cut off or carved out with a spoon, and cut in half. Then, butter cream, whipped cream or other sweet filling (e.g. jam) is spread into the hole. Finally, the two cut halves are stuck into the butter cream to look like butterfly wings. The wings of the cake are often decorated using icing to form various patterns.
A cake ball is an individual portion of cake, round like a chocolate truffle, that is coated in frosting. These are typically formed from crumbled cake mixed with frosting, rather than being baked as a sphere.
