& if you want to make your cupcakers in a jar really fancy – download perfectly sized, blank mason jar labels HERE, then cut out with a sharp pair of scissores, or a 2-inch circle punch. & fyi… these labels make great gift tags.

Many thanks. These tags were perfect size for the children to use to decorate the top off their baby food jars when they crafted sand art bath salts . Adorable!.

This is great! Just one question.... How long would they be edible for in the jar?? If i was to make some for Xmas, what would be the "sell by date"?

honestly, i don't know. I've eaten them a week later & they were fine. If you want to "pre-make" them, I'd suggest making them & then freezing them. I've done that & they are fab!

I used 4 oz jars as party favors for my friends baby shower. I used funfetti cake mix and used food coloring to make the white frosting pink! SOO cute!

I feel a cavity (or twelve) coming on. I'm not even mad about that. Yum!

So fricken adorable! Are those 8oz jars? I ordered some jars online and they came with fragmented glass as the jar instead of clear.. Argh :) Oh well. Plus, I think those small spoons might actually work for mine too!? Hmm...

  1. […] This particular holiday cake in a jar is red velvet—my favorite! However, you can choose any cake recipe for the inside—such as classic Christmas cake or even peppermint candy cane cake. Simply layer the dry ingredients inside the jar, seal the lid, and print of cake making instructions using colorfully-festive paper detailing all of the wet ingredients in order to bake up a Christmas treat that the whole family can enjoy! You can affix the directions as a glued on label or as an actual gift tag. [Image and recipe from According to Kelly] […]
