Canine chef - yes you can store the mixed powders in individual portions (in small plastic food containers or glass jars) and bake as needed. Probably months at room temp.

PS Assumed you wanted them to bake from scratch. If not, there's the classic short cut of mixing contents of one box each, cake mix & instant pudding mix. Then divide that powder in 8 portions. To each portion, add 1 large egg (2 oz), 1 tbsp oil, 1 to 3 tbsp water. Mix, microwave 2 to 2.5 minutes. Voila! Eat as is or garnish to taste.
On flavors one can mix and match to taste preference and - if needed - nut allergies, but I have found a chocolate cake mix (standard box, about 18 oz) and pistachio pudding mix (about 3 oz box) give lovely results.

Question on the cake mix/pudding mix option: Can you store the premixed dry ingredients and then bake individual cakes as desired?

Yes, Canine chef, the combined dry cake-pudding mix individual portions can be stored at room
temp and baked later. Probably months, maybe a year. I put them in small plastic food boxes or glass jars. Probably could go to work, with the egg oil water in another container, for a quick treat there.
