    This cake is delicious and so easy and quick to make. You only need 1 teaspoon of stevia and it is sweet enough. I used light cream cheese with stevia for filling. You could use jam or any other filling you like if you don't like tofu. I think I will throw a few raisins in next time. Yummy. - 10/4/13

    faster and easier would be the 3-2-1 cake, take an Angel Food Cake Mix and a Carrot Cake Mix (one has to be Angel Food) mix together, take 3 tbs of the combined mix, 2 tbs of water, mix in a mug, place in the microwave for 1 minute. add whatever topping you want. rest of mix in airtight container - 7/9/14

    We made this using Splenda and more carrot.I left out the baking powder since I didn't have it and it was still delish. I also used cream cheese for the icing as we are not lactose intolerant. ALSO a great tip is to lightly oil the mug first. So much easier to clean. - 12/11/13

    can't wait to try this . allergic to soy so found out 1/4 cup tofu = 1 egg so you could use 1/8 cup egg substitute. - 10/4/13

    Just tried this. Verdict? As listed, meh. The cake part is great, but I couldn't find tofutti cream cheese, so I substituted vegan cream cheese, which seemed very salty. Would like to make this again using light cream cheese and more stevia. - 7/17/14

    Tofutti is dairy-free substitute brand. They make a lot of different things, like cream cheese. http://www.tofutti.com/ - 10/25/13

    I won't be trying this one. A small piece of the banana may be cheap but what about the large part that doesn't go in the cake. The same can be said for most of the ingredients. The dance with the hair flying is cute but at least one hair will be in the cake. Not a pleasant image for the cake. - 7/9/14
