I posted that picture of the jarred cupcakes a few days ago.
Heres mine, ( Different container, different name, different recipe)
I had bought jars, but they were way to big, so I found these Bell Jam containers at walmart & they fit a cupcake perfectly. I just sliced the cupcakes & layered them w/ frosting.

These are so cute. What a good idea! I have done jar cakes but without icing they just don't "ring my bell." They keep a long time, but icing won't so I really gave up on them. How long will the cupcakes and icing stay fresh? Should they be eaten right away? How do you price them? Sorry, so many questions but I really like them for favors &/or gifts, or to go along with a cake or possible samples to get new business. Thanks for sharing

these should be eaten & not kept. They are quick & simple to do.
If I was to sell them, probably $3.50. Not sure.

This is a cute idea. I had seen it on etsy, being sold by the Fat Daddy Bake Shop. It's a great way to ship cupcakes without worrying about smashing them.

I love the way you decorated the jar (the ribbon and the sticker on top). Very Cute!

I love these. I need to make cupcakes for a breat cancer awareness back sale at church. What kind of cake did you use. What do you think would be a great flavor cupcake and filling for this event. I had bought pink ribbon cupcake liners, but these are cuter. I can personalize a sticker for the event. This is a great idea. You should be proud of the outcome of your product.

Cute!

I do a lot of beach trips and picnics in the summer, so I definately think I'm going to try making the cupcake in a jar (just not the ORIGINAL ones since that's patent pending icon_wink.gif) I think the jars will fit great in the cooler.

I will probably make them more trifle-like though. Maybe a little custard or bavarian cream, fresh fruit, etc. Mmmmm...lots of possibilities icon_smile.gif

thanks everyone icon_smile.gif
To answer a few questions, this is just a yellow cake & vanilla frosting.
These are bell plastic jam jars / I found them at walmart w/ the glass bell jars. they were like $3.50 for 5 of them.
These would be great for a picnic!
The label is just a round Avery label # 5294 template.

Oh goodie I can finally see the picture! I love that you used the plastic jars, I think I like that better than the glass. Yours came out really cute, can't wait to try, I'm with HerBoudoir, I've had so many ideas since the original post icon_smile.gif I really want to try them as little ice cream cakes and with different, cream and fruit fillings icon_biggrin.gif

Love the tags you made up too.

Theres no white paper product inside the jar, that is just whipped vanilla frosting.

I went out and bought these cute containers. I even noticed for the exact same price you can get bigger plastic containers (same Ball type) in a package of 4 (I would love to see a King Size Cupcake or "Cupcake for two". Great idea for your site! These containers sure would weigh less - I think you would be a great competitor on Etsy too (up against the one that is already there = FD)!
You must sell these on your site right away!! How cute! Quick question: it looks like you didnt cut them in half like your other post mentions of FD. So how are they layered in the jar?

What is FD?
I just cut the cupcake in half & used those two pieces to layer between frosting. icon_smile.gif

reenie, what about the lids? I know must jars come with the sealing lid? Also, is this idea up for grabs and redo's???? I think it is a neat thing to do and would do well at the coffee shop I do consignment for. You know that strawberry pie filling dish people put in a trifle bowl (smashed up cake, then strawberry pie filling, the cool whip, all layered) that would be a great idea too... or chocolate turtle ones.... ooohhhhhh thanks for starting the hype... what are these selling for reenie?

I think I would like to try these for my DD graduation party. It will be June 7th. Don't you think that these would hold up better than a cake outside?

I could get a label with her picture and graduation date on them for party favors. Do you do party favors at a graduation party? HMMMMMMMM?!!!!

grad favors would be cute!
this just has a screw on lid. But travels very well.
My kids take them to school in lunch.
I havent sold them, just was playing around with the idea.
