Freshly Packaged In Mason Jars
At Sunflour Baking Company we believe in freshness. In fact, our motto is "from scratch. small batch. local". Meaning everything we bake and sell is made in small batches, and from scratch to ensure freshness. Order cupcakes online and we ship them off in mason-style glass jars and finish them with a layer of buttercream frosting to make sure that when you open that cupcake box it's like walking into one of our local bakeries.
Cupcakes Make The Perfect Gift
Not sure what to get someone? How about something delicious and packaged perfectly to put a smile on that someone's face. Our awesome cupcakes, served in jars, are that perfect gift. Delicious buttercream, freshly baked cake, all layered up with a tightly sealed lid to ensure freshness. Just opening the jar will make anyone on your gift list happy, let alone digging in "spoon first", which is on a whole different level of satisfying.
So, What Exactly is a "Cupcake In A Jar"?
We're so glad you asked! Let's get straight to the buttercream center of the question. 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.
- fresh, from scratch cake layered into mason jars
- delicious, rich buttercream tops each cake layer
- air-tight lid seals in the freshness and makes it last
Cupcakes 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.
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 over, 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!
The jars do an amazing job of keeping the cake and frosting 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.

Our Process: Making Mason Jar Cupcakes...
- Bring the flavor - layer different flavor combinations to make your own
- Packed to perfection - cool your cakes and layer cake & frosting until the jar is filled
- Seal the deal - Seal the jars with an air-tight lid for freshness and safekeeping
Bringing the 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. Do be afraid to go gourmet!
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.
Packed to Perfection
The secret to an awesome mason jar cupcake - aside from the recipe - is the packing process. Once your cupcakes have been baked to perfection, allow them to cool completely. Cut your cupcakes in half so that you have bottom pieces and top pieces. Put your bottom piece into your jar first. Using a piping bag to add a layer of your favorite buttercream. Next, put the top layer of the cupcake in the jar. Use your fingers to gently smash this piece into a flat, crumbly layer. Add another layer of buttercream and all your favorite toppings. 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!
