Cake in a Jar

I recently saw "cupcakes in a jar" and thought I would make "cake in a jar" because it sounded easier to me. It is so easy to make and a great idea for a "tailgating party"
Bake a cake (any ol' cake, any ol' kind) and cut a few slices into cubes:

This is a great invention and perfect for this project (I suppose if you have plenty of time on your hands you could "whip" up some homemade):
Get some spinkles:
Layer cubes into a jar (I used baby food jars) half way and squirt in some frosting :
and then some sprinkles:
Layer more cubes, frost and sprinkle again:
Cut a square of fabric and tie a ribbon and fork around jar lid:
and that's all there is to it:

Sharing this simple idea of what you can do with baby food jars with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch...stop over and see other "before and after" ideas. Also joining Tutorial Tues at Hope Studios


  1. Really cute, and yep, totally fun for tail gaiting! Go Eagles:@)

  2. Oh wow! Patti, I love this idea!! I have baby jars washed and cleaned from watching my granddaughters quite a bit! I think it would be fun for a little picnic with the granddaughters to the park...throw these into the picnic basket. They would love it! :)

    Or maybe throw it into their treat or treat bag!! :D I like it a lot!!

  3. Way cute! I've seen cake done this way with pudding - - - chocolate is my fave - - - blended in too. Only I never saw it in little individual JARS before!

  4. Really a cute idea! I love the idea of using mini baby food jars and love how you packaged them up complete with a fork!

  5. I love this idea. I have never seen that frosting (but I'm not known to go down the baking aisle of the grocery store) but you are right....a fabulous invention!!
    I love how you packaged it.

  6. Great idea - thanks for sharing. Have not seen that frosting before, but then I have not done any baking in a long time.

  7. Okay, those are REALLY cute. And I'm guessing they tasted good, too!

    I have a bit of a napkin fetish (my friends tease me about my stash of napkins!), and I'm thinking that maybe you could substitute a cute napkin for the cloth on top--and then partiers would have a fork and a napkin at the ready for eating! (Not that I'd ever need a napkin when eating cake, or that I've gone half a day with chocolate frosting smudged on my chin, or anything like that. Just sayin.)

  8. Yummy! I wish I could have one of those goodies now.

    Cute idea.


  9. How cute! It's all about packaging!

  10. I love it! The presentation is fabulous! Have a great week! Angie xo

  11. This might just be what I take for my daughter's Halloween party at school. Great idea!

  12. Adorable and easy. Perfect! Thanks so much!

  13. How sweet. Really, I love this idea.

  14. I'm dying to try the kind you bake in the jar - but this will hold me off until I get around to that :)
