Cupcake In A Jar

There's something quietly magical that happens when you find an idea on another blog and try it out yourself. I remember last year seeing these mason jar cupcakes and thinking how adorable they were and wanting desperately to do them myself. Fast forward to this week. The muffin tin kids' school is having a bake sale this week to benefit St/ Jude's Research Hospital (a young boy in MTG's class has a brain tumor and was treated at St. Jude). I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to get creative for a good cause.

What do you think?

Hopefully, they will bring in good money. :)

You could even change it up and add pudding, whipped cream and strawberries to make it a "trifle in a jar".

Be sure to check out Joy's Hope for the simple instructions and inspiration.


  1. WE loved Joys Hope cupcake idea!!!! They are so moist and yummy-- the best part is her frosting recipe--- oh soooo sinful and creamy!

  2. Love it! I have done cupcakes in a mug before but not mason jars.

  3. Super cute!!! I think a trifle in there would be DELICIOUS, as well. MMMn, yum!
