{ DIY } Cupcakes + Mason Jars = Charming

What a fun spin on an old classic. Introducing jarcakes. It seems anything in mason jars comes up about cupcakes? These are just adorable. Perfect favors for showers, casual weddings or  hostess gifts. Bakers twine tied around jar with a wooden spoon finish the look. And as the tag reads...enjoy! Instructables and recipe below!

Start off by making Red Velvet Cupcakes : Paula Deen's recipe is a favorite

Supply List:


1. Batter is ready to be put in cupcake pan
2. Spray the pan with pam and then fill each hole up 2/3 with the batter. Note: Normally you do not use liners, but you could if you want, just pull them off before putting them in the jar.
3. Usually they are done after about 17 minutes in my oven at temperature of 350℉, and I take them out and put them on a wire rack to cool completely.
4. Once they are cool, Slice them in half. You will have a stack of tops and a stack of bottoms.
5. Place one in each jar.
6. Put a layer of frosting with frosting bag.
7. Take the top of the cupcake and place on top of the layer of frosting. 
8. Flatten (gently smash) the top part of the cupcake inside the jar. You want to get the top sort of flat.
9. Beautifully frost the top of each cupcake.

10. Cover with lids and package however you like! It will be heartbreaking to eat, as it is so pretty, but it is so yummy!

These could be made with all sorts of cake and topping's the limit! Although there is something lovely about Red Velvet. Stay tuned in the coming I walk you through the lovely art of whoopie pies + DIY gift presentation! Great for hostess gifts or for a special I made for my children's teachers at Christmas.
