Rainbow Cake in a Jar

Last week, we showed you the oh-so-yummy cheesecake in a jar, and today we’re showing you a slight spin on the in-a-jar craze: rainbow cake in a jar! Can you imagine a DIY jar bar with mason jars, a variety of different cakes, yummy vanilla frosting, and rainbow sprinkles? Sounds amazing to us! Don’t forget lids, spoons, and tags for guests to take ’em to go!

Rainbow Cake in a Jar

This cake-in-a-jar recipe was spotted at Babble in an article by Brooke McKay.

I was talking with a friend on the phone when I was mixing the batter… she suggested I should make one as a test, that was so wonderfully helpful! I wanted to make the cake only half full or… Read more »

I have so many baby food jars that I go through and I was pondering the thought of using baby food jars to use for the cake! Thoughts? How long would I have to bake them? Would it be safe?
