Babble has a custom-made treat just for the Memorial Day weekend.
While many cakes can be baked in jars, this one is baked in a large pan then crumbled into place in mason jars, thus allowing the final product to look as bright, colorful, and perfectly layered as the photo you see above.
- 1 white cake mix
- 1 tub vanilla frosting
- red and blue food coloring
To assemble jars, crumble cake into large pieces. Fill the bottom 1/3 of the jar with blue cake. Top with a thin layer of frosting. Add a layer of crumbled red cake on top of that, then finish off your jars with a final layer of frosting. Add sprinkles, if desired.
Twist caps onto the top of your jars. Store at room temperature for up to 24 hours, and in the fridge for up to three days. Because you aren’t sealing the cakes into the jars, this treat is best when not mailed via snail mail.
Makes 3 medium-sized cakes-in-jars (shown in picture) or 6 small, cupcake-sized cakes-in-jars.
Be safe this holiday and have fun sharing good food with family and friends!
