My Cakies Blog has done just that, made these divine cupcakes and stuffed them into a jar. You then just serve them to your friends or guests as shown here in the picture. Ta Da, a perfect desert that would be totally unexpected and no doubt make your event a talking point for a long time to remember!
If you are thinking of giving these a go, start collecting jars now, and check out the recipe here.
I actually think they would make the greatest traveling cupcake, pop one into a cooler bag and you are sure that it will look this good whenever you are ready to eat it. Love it!
