If you love desserts as much as we do, no doubt you’ve been around the block a few times on delicious portable confections. Apple turnovers are a classic favorite, but you’ve probably also seen things like tiny packaged parfaits, pies that fit in the palm of your hand, and every possible variation of cookies. If you’ve tried everything from the pocket pancakes to the strawberry shortcake kebabs, you may think yourself a portable dessert connoisseur, and maybe you are. But we’re here to tell you there’s a new rising star in the world of portable delicacies and you haven’t lived until you’ve tried one… or two.

Meet the Cupcakes in a Jar, the long-lasting cupcake snack baked fresh in our bakeries and shipped to eager sugar devotees across the country.

What is a “Cupcake in a Jar”?

We’re so glad you asked! Let’s get straight to the buttercream center of the question. Cupcake in a jar is exactly what it sounds like. Two large, delicious, and freshly baked cupcakes layered with their own icing and toppings into a sturdy mason jar for the safest cupcake travel you’ve ever seen sent two jars at a time for double the fun. Cupcakes in Jars can be sent through the mail (we do it all the time), and eaten straight out of the jar with a perfect balance of cake and icing as if you’d just ordered one warm off our shelves. Oh! And you can warm them up, too for that ooey-gooey warm cupcake delight.

How Did You Think of This Confectionary Marvel?

Here at Sunflour Baking Company, based around cozy Charlotte, NC we’ve been honing our cupcake technique since 2009 and we have recently perfected our greatest baked invention yet. We realized that while everyone deserves delicious cupcakes made fresh with natural ingredients, you can’t all live near one of our three NC locations to get them. (That could get pretty crowded) .Once we identified the problem, the solution was obvious. We needed a way to package the cupcakes that would keep them as fresh and delicious as the day we baked them.

Why the Mason Jar?

Believe us when we say we’ve transported a lot of cupcakes and are familiar with all the classic challenges. The icing slides, the tumbles, the dreaded Squish. Normally once your cupcake tips, that’s the end and you’re eating it with a spoon. We figured, why not make a squish-proof, and spoon-friendly from the very beginning? Mason jars are sturdy, they seal tight, and you can send them safely in the mail, unlike normal cupcakes. Plus, they’re 100% reusable! After a little experimentation, we confirmed that we can send you two full-sized and generously iced cupcakes for every jar and the Cupcake in a Jar was born.

How Long Do They Last?

The jars do an amazing job of keeping the cupcakes fresh, and each packaged dessert can last up to 10 days without refrigeration and even longer if you keep them cool. Want to eat one jar now and the other later? No problem, because they can last up to 6 months in the freezer and thaw out just as tasty as when they went in.

Our signature Cupcake in a Jar is perfect for parties, gifts, midnight snacks, camping trips, and desert on the road. When you’re ready to try one, you can pick two, four, or six of our delectable flavors and we’ll ship the cupcakes directly to you! Whether you crave layers of chocolate, classic carrot cake, or a tangy key-lime, we’ve got the perfect cupcake recipe ready for you.
