Cupcakes in a Jar

Good Day Everyone!

As readers, I am sure you know how much I love red velvet...cookies, cupcakes and brownies. When I came across these red velvet cupcakes in a jar at an Etsy shop, I just fell in love with the idea. Great for gifting, parties and an opportunity to personalize it, what could be a better way to give a sweet treat? These cupcakes can be created easily at home: purchase a set of mason jars at your local KMart, Walmart, hardware or grocery store; ribbon can be purchased at a craft shop. The ideas are endless. Tie a wooden spoon with ribbon so your loved one can enjoy it immediately if they'd like.

How To Make...

Create as many layers as you can. Choose your cake and icing flavor. My favorite would definitely be the red velvet or lemon cake with lemon icing and chips. More tutorial tips here.

Or you can purchase your cupcake-in-a-jar at this Etsy shop. Another great shop (photo featured below). They create cupcakes with a NYC name theme.
