i’m acutally making cupcakes in a jar for my shower favors…however, i’m doing the ones where you actually bake them in the jar, so the whole(it’s half pint size) is a cupcake! then you frost them in the jar…like this:

@tinarenee77:  You can bake them in the jars, but there’s been studies that find bacterial growth on cakes baked in mason jars.  Also, mason jars are not made to withstand heat from an oven.  There’s the chance they could break. 

 

I sell these on my Etsy store, and I just stuff 2 cupcakes into the jars.  It’s not hard!  I literally JUST put up a tutorial on my blog yesterday!  But I won’t post the link b/c of WB’s self-advert. policy =)

 

If you like the small half size jars, just make the cupcakes separately and stuff them in.  Adds one more step, but better safe than sorry, right?

I’m doing cookies in a jar for my wedding favors (well, cookie mix). Right now Hobby Lobby has those smooth ball mason jars for 50%, fyi! It’s a great deal!

i made gingerbread in a jar for a cookie exchange one year and had absolutely no problem with any of the jars breaking or anyone getting sick(in case of bacterial anything).

oh wow, i just checked the site for the recipe and it is the one where you bake the cupcake and cut it in half…i thought it was the same as the cakes i did where i actually baked them in a jar…hmmm i’ll have to look into this more! lol

@sarbear2814: The pic on the left with the chocolate frosting  is not baked in the jar. The cupcake has the ridges from the paper cupcake liner on it.

Or were you just using this as an example of the finished product?

@julies1949: i actually just grabbed the picture really quick, i looked like what i wanted when i just glanced at it…oops!

@tinarenee77: i looked up the recipe for them(i bought the recipe book) and it says you can cook the cupcakes 3 different ways, 1 just bake them right in the jar, 2 bake a cake and cut it out into circles to fit into the jar and then cut it in half to frost the middle or 3 to bake cupcakes like normal and put them in the jar. they also said you can use terra cotta pots.

I love this idea too, however I’m concern on the way is eaten, like i know it has an spoon but somehow in my mind it willbe a huge mess and you will have an spoonfull of frosting without cupcake and viceversa…I love the way it look, but this and the fact i have no idea how to make them, make me sad cuz they are sooo cute!
