Mini Cupcakes in a Jar
Pot Luck Friday and a little thank you to a teacher who has spent the last three weeks filling in for a colleague who has been out. It's a tough gig being an "acting administrator" and having to suspend students when you are used to being a teacher (and a darn good one!) and don't usually have to be the "bad guy". But what a great job he did!
We're all bringing in treats so I thought mini cupcakes in a jar would be cool. I went to WalMart and bought two dozen 4 oz. jelly jars. The larger jars require 1 1/2 cupcakes to fill... these fill with one. I cut off the top of each cupcake and then cut them in half. I pushed one half in, added a squirt of frosting, put the top half in, a little more frosting, some sprinkles and done!! A little bit of black and gold ribbon and voila!!
I did try a new frosting recipe that I found on Glorious Treats (link here). It was just enough for 18 cupcakes.
I really like the smaller size - easier to make, less calories for those folks who want to splurge a little. Plus, having cupcakes in a jar, they're portable and fun to eat!
