Summer is the perfect time for bbq’s, picnics, and beach days.  These cupcakes in a mason jar are great for bringing along anywhere.  They travel amazingly, are super yummy, and totally cute.  We made ours for a family get-together and they were a big hit.

how to make Cupcakes in a mason jar

We made ours with vanilla cupcakes, and then made all different kinds of fillings and icing.  Start by making a batch of your favourite vanilla cupcakes -from scratch or a cupcake mix, and then get creative.

lemon Cupcakes

These were actually for my mother-in-laws birthday and she loves all things lemon.  We decided to make a lemon version with homemade lemon curd -but store bought would work just as well, look for it with the jam in the supermarket.  

We started our cupcakes in a mason jar, by cutting the vanilla cupcake in half and putting the bottom half into the mason jar.  Then we added a layer of our lemon curd, followed by some whipped cream.  Then we added the top of our cupcake, frosted it with vanilla icing, and added some yellow sprinkles for fun.

Next we made blueberry cupcakes in a jar.  We again started by cutting our vanilla cupcake in half, and putting the bottom into the mason jar.  I added a layer of whipped cream, then some fresh blueberries and a little blueberry jam, followed by the top of the cupcake, and vanilla icing.  We topped them off with a few more fresh berries.

One of my daughters loves all things chocolate, so we came up with an easy chocolate version too.  We layered vanilla cupcake, whipped cream, chopped toffee chocolate bar, vanilla cupcake, chocolate icing, and more chocolate bar pieces.

To make the whole process easier, I whipped up a whole bowl of cream that we used for all of them, and a batch of vanilla icing.  Then, we added flavours to the vanilla base; cocoa powder to make chocolate, pureed strawberry for strawberry icing, and peach jam -with a drop of red and yellow food colouring, to make peach icing.

strawberry Cupcakes

The strawberry cupcakes in a jar were made by layering vanilla cupcake, whipped cream, fresh sliced strawberries, cupcake, and strawberry icing.  These might have been my fav., like strawberry shortcake, but sweeter.

After we had the cupcakes in jar all ready for the party, I packed them up in an old coke crate, along with some flowers and headed to the party.
