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.

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?

ReenieK, You are so clever! Thanks for sharing your idea. The combinations of flavors with cake and fillings and frosting could be endless.

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.
