Cupcakes in a Jar
Here they are!
I made 45 Jars of 6 different Cupcakes.
These bad boys went all over the place including shipments to Utah and Washington :)
Strawberry Shortcake: Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and Strawberry Topping
(I would have loved to put a slice of a fresh strawberry on top but because I was jarring these and shipping them all over, I didn't want anyone to get a mushy or moldy strawberry...that would suck!)
Orange Creamsicle: Vanilla & Orange Blended Cupcake, Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and a Sugar Orange Candy Topper
S'mores: Chocolate Cupcake, Graham Cracker Crumbs, Marshmallow Frosting and Hershey's Chocolate Square Topper
Chocolate Peanut Butter: Chocolate Cupcake, Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting, Chocolate Sprinkles (which I just realized I forgot to put on my model cupcake) and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Topper
Note: This one was my favorite of the batch...the frosting is too good to be true. My sister says all peanut butter should taste this way!
Red Velvet Cream Cheese: Red Velvet Cupcake, Rich Cream Cheese Frosting and Sprinkles
Classic Vanilla: Vanilla Cupcake, Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, Sprinkles and Chocolate Covered Cherry
These were a lot of fun to make but as always, lessons were learned along the way.
Like...finding long wooden spoons way ahead of time so I don't have to use short plastic ones.
Like...using 1/2 pint jars next time so the cupcakes have a more full look.
Like...not eating so much frosting during the process :)
I would love to make some mini cupcakes in small jars...like for party favors or something. I think those would look really cool and be great for kids.
So...someone have a party and order some from me!
