Cupcake In A Jar

The cupcake phenomenon just won't end. Now this sweet treat has been reinvented in a novel way... a cupcake in a jar! Perfect for cute take-home wedding favors.

Here is the DIY recipe as posted by My Cakies:

- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- *2 1/4 tsp cocoa powder
- *1 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 tbsp red food coloring
- 1 tsp white distilled vinegar
- *2 tsp vanilla extract

for the cream cheese frosting:
- 1 pound cream cheese, softened
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- *2 tsps vanilla extract
- 4 cups sifted powdered sugar

Step 1: Prepare batter and fill each cupcake pan 2/3 full. Bake in a moderate oven for approximately 17 minutes.Take out of oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Step 2: Once cooled, cut each cupcake in half. Place the bottom half in the bottom of each jar.
Step 3: Put a layer of frosting.
Step 4: Take the top of the cupcake and place it onto of the frosting. Flatten the top part of the cupcake inside the jar to make it flat (ish).
Step 5: Beautifully frost the top of the cupcake.
Step 6: Cover with lids and package to your individual style.
