how to make cake jars

I can hear some of you cheering through my computer screen since I am finally posting this recipe. I got a bunch of emails where you cute ladies wanted to make this for graduation, showers, birthdays...! So as promised here's the cake jars that my sister & Emily made for my birthday party!

· Make your favorite cupcake batter recipe. Then spray your cupcake pan thoroughly with cooking spray - don't use your liners so you'll have a nice fit in the jars once your cupcakes are complete! Fill each hole about 2/3 with the batter.

· After your cupcakes have completely cooled on a wire rack, bag them in freezer Ziploc bags and freeze overnight.

· Slice frozen cupcakes in half. Place the bottom half in a jar, pipe with frosting, add the top half, and pipe the top.

· Seal the lids (add your favorite scrapbook paper or a photo of the person of honor on each lid ahead of time.)

· Tie spoons to the side of each jar with twine.

· Refrigerate until party time! Yum!!!


Let Emily make custom cake jars for your next party. Email Emily at cupcakesbyem@gmail.com if you're local in Utah.

Totally fun way to serve cake! Did you know you can cook cake in the jar too? However your icing wouldn't be distributed as nicely as this, however cooking in the jar & sealing while hot creates a nice cake for storage or shipping. Lovely idea Lizzy! Thanks for sharing ;)
