    Using bamboo skewer or sharp knife, gently poke several holes in each mug cake.

    To make Strawberry Cream Syrup, in small microwavable bowl, beat both milks with whisk to blend. Microwave on High 30 seconds or until hot. Beat in 1 tablespoon gelatin. Pour half of the cream syrup over each cake. Let cake stand 2 minutes or until cream syrup is absorbed.
