    Bringing the Cupcake Flavor

    When getting the hang of how to make cupcakes in a jar, the key is it's all about personal preference. Want just one cupcake in your jar? Go with a 4 oz jar. Feel like doubling up? The 8 oz jars perfectly fit two cupcakes and all the frosting and toppings that your heart desires. For those exceptional sweet tooth days, 12 oz jars fit three cupcakes and all their topping goodness. Jars with wide openings also make it easier to maintain the structure of your cupcakes and add your buttercream and toppings easily.

    Pick your favorite recipe and get to work. No need for cupcake liners, just make sure to spray your baking tray down so the batter won't stick.

    Tip: if you always get batter all over your baking tray, use a pastry piping bag (or ziplock bag with the tip cut off) to fill your cupcake molds with precision.

    One of the best thing about cupcakes is that the possibilities are endless. You can go super sweet, like double chocolate chip and salted caramel buttercream cupcakes. Or go more with more savory flavors. If you're more of a traditional flavor lover, German Chocolate and Birthday Cake are some of our favorites. Once your cakes are baked, you're ready to move on to packing your jars to perfection.

    Cake Jars Packed to Perfection

    The secret to an awesome cake jar - aside from the recipe - is the packing process.

    1. Once your cupcakes have been baked to perfection, allow them to cool completely.
    2. Cut your cupcakes in half so that you have bottom pieces and top pieces.
    3. Put your bottom piece into your jar first.
    4. Using a piping bag to add a layer of your favorite buttercream. Next, put the top layer of the cupcake in the jar.
    5. Use your fingers to gently smash this piece into a flat, crumbly layer. Add another layer of buttercream and all your favorite toppings.
    6. For two or three cupcakes in a jar, continue this layering process until you have as many layers as your heart desires.
    Sealing the Deal

    Sealing your jars may be the toughest part. But, don't let it deter you! The easiest way to seal your jars for freshness is to put all the flat lids (not the rings, just the lids) into a pot with water. Bring the pot to a boil and then turn it off. As soon as you finish decorating your cupcakes, use a pair of tongs to pull out one of the flat lids. Quickly pat it dry and then pop it on your jar and seal with the ring. As the lid cools, you may hear a soft 'pop,' which is the sound of the jars sealing.

    Once your mason jars are sealed, they will last for a few days at room temperature. To enjoy your cupcake creation, later on, put them in the refrigerator or freezer. Refrigerated cupcakes in a jar will last for a week and frozen cupcakes up to 6 months!
