Last week we had a bake sale at our church.
I wanted to think outside the box and come up with something a little different.
Cupcakes in a jar.
These are the coolest things, I actually saw these on Food Network and thought,
what a genius idea.
There is so many things you can do with these.
You can take these on the go, or if you don't eat it all, you can save the
rest for latter. Not to mention these would make a great gift.
These are super easy to make.
I used a cake mix and store bought icing.
Bake cup cakes in a muffin pan, let cool and cut in half.
Place the bottom cupcake in the jar, top with icing,
place the top part of the cupcake on top of icing and end with the icing
I tied a spoon around the jar so if they wanted to eat it right then they could,
plus it looks really cute with the spoon.
My second item for the bake sale.
These babies almost didn't make it to the bake sale.
The smell of these Cinnamon Rolls tormented us,
I think my whole family was hoping I would drop them on the floor
so I wouldn't have to take them to the bake sale and believe me, we would
have eaten every cinnamon roll off the floor including me.
Sadly enough, I didn't drop any but, we did eat the ones that we thought
might not be bake sale worthy. Code for, we could not help ourselves.
I admit it, I had a week moment. I think those cinnamon rolls put some
kind of spell on us, yea! thats what happened, it was all the cinnamon rolls
fault. Shew! I feel a lot better now that I realized I wasn't week, I was just
under a cinnamon roll spell and the only way to break the spell is to
eat the cinnamon roll. :-)
You guys are probably thinking, enough with the spells and
give us the recipe!
Here is the recipe, and remember if you find yourself eating a lot of these, it's ok,
your doing the right thing, it's the only way to break the ( scary music in the back ground)
