Cupcakes in a jar

Doesn't that sound yummy, cupcakes in a jar!!  
When I mentioned it to friends they couldn't wrap their heads around a cupcake in a jar,
 its quite simple really.  Small canning jars work best, I think mine were the 8 oz. size. 
 Bake your cupcakes as usual, let them cool then cut them in half, put the bottom half in the bottom of the jar, pipe on some frosting then set the remaining cupcake on top of the frosting, pipe on more frosting,
 and viola!  A cupcake in a jar!
The only problem was everyone wanted to take their cupcake home and I wanted to keep the jars for making jam, they were really quite pretty to look at so return my jars anyway I don't blame them. 

I tied a plastic spoon to the jar with some bakers twine, a neat little package!

Check out Kiki Creates (one of my new favorite blogs) her recent posting is all about photography lighting, too bad I didn't read the blog before I tried to take a picture of my cupcakes in a dark kitchen with a flash!
