Project Idea #5: Hey! Cupcakes in a Jar!

Project5

Here is an easy gift, which is really fun to make, and you probably have most of the supplies in your cupboard! Fill a mason jar with the dry ingredients for your favorite cupcake, muffin or cookie recipe. Top with colorful paper or cloth and tie with a matching ribbon. Add the directions for the remainder of the ingredients to a label affixed to the back of the jar. Add your greeting card and voila (!) … a gift fit for any king with a sweet tooth. If you would like to make it even easier, take a look at the stickers and labels that are part of the Our Special Recipes group, created by Cathy and Ellen for C.R. Gibson.

    This is a great gift idea, we used to make cookie mixes in jars long ago – but cupcakes are so “in” right now :)

    I love these as gifts. I have recieved some jar cookies before and they were the best.

    That’s a great idea! Most of my friends don’t bake, so I don’t think this would work, but I would love to GET something like this :) I think “granola in a jar” might work better for them, with the wet and dry ingredients separated… I think that’s the one thing they’d be willing to bake!

    I’ve heard of hot chocolate mix or cookie mix in a jar, but not cupcake mix. What a great idea! Love it.

    We’re glad everyone enjoyed this DIY … we will make a new one soon and hopefully have a downloadable label for you to go with it. Have fun mix making! Cathy
