Cake and mason jars — two wedding staples that come together to create a lot of fun. You can find recipes for different flavors of jar cupcakes around, but Sarah Jill offers one of the most colorful and simple versions. Six-ounce mason jars would yield a nice serving size for a backyard wedding. Thanks, Sarah Jill!


  •  one box of ready-to-bake cake mix (or your own cupcake mix)
  • a few old jars
  • a variety of food colouring
  • squirty cream
  • rainbow sprinkles

preheat oven to 350 degrees. thoroughly wash and dry the inside of each jar. spray the inside of each jar thoroughly with nonstick cooking spray. set aside.

scoop about 1/2 cups of cake batter into five small bowls. it doesn’t have to be perfect, don’t panic if you get a little more of less of one color than another.  tint each bowl of cake batter with the food colouring until very vibrant.

spoon about 3 tablespoons of the purple batter into the bottom of each jar.  spoon equal amounts of turquoise batter, then green, yellow, and pink.  place the jars in a shallow baking dish, add about 1/4inch in water in the baking dish. place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
