Hello, How much would you charge for 50 cake jars and the customer is providing the jars?
$3 to $4 for one flavor of cake and one flavor of frosting.
$1 each for different flavors
Sorry, I'm still learning all the things you can do with cake. When you say cake jars, do you mean cake in mason jars?
Oh no problem. Yes, cake jars=cake in mason jars.
Any tips for making them? I want to try this for our 4th of July barbecue this summer.
Easy to make. Cut two cupcakes in half horizontally, put in 1/2 cupcake, filling, candy, ganache, caramel, etc., then 1/2 cupcake, repeat until jar is full. Basically, it is just a layered dessert. The possibilities are endless.
like to fill my jars to about 1/4" from the top, then place a candy melt (that compliments the flavors/colors) on top so when the lid is removed, the lid won't have a giant glob of frosting sticking to it.
Google cake jar and you'll pull up lots of basic DIY information.
I purchased 1/2 pint (8 ounce), wide-mouth mason/kerr/canning jars with lids and rings. Depending on the store, you can get them for about 75 cents to $1 per jar. This size jar is just right for 2 cupcakes and frosting/filling. Tape a plastic spoon to the side, tie with ribbon and you are done.
It is actually pretty quick once you assemble everything (mise en place) and makes a cute presentation, but it is expensive because of the packaging (jar) costs per individual serving. You could prepare each jar for "two" with two spoons for Valentine's Day.
A great site for photos, flavor combinations, and inspiration is Wicked Good Cupcakes.
awesome idea on the candy melt!
Thanks, @Apti!! There seems to be a unlimited number of ideas! I am so excited that I want to try them now haha. Thanks for the candy melt idea, I would have never have thought of that idea!
You're welcome everyone. My brain wasn't working right this am, more ideas if you google: cupcakes in a jar
Forgot to mention this: Using cupcake liners as decorations to match the theme/color/holiday/sentiment. (see photo below) If you use a light colored cupcake liner, you can just write the cupcake flavor on the lid with a sharpie. You can attach your business card and write the flavor/filling of the cupcake on the back of the card, then run the ribbon through the hole in the card and attach to the jar with the ribbon.
Sorry I don't have any of my pics to show you (loaned out my camera), but basically my photos look just like the images on google. These cupcakes in a jar are almost impossible to mess up.
sorry for the late respones! Apti gave you excellent answers!
