Cute jars with the cake baked in it! Tags say, "You are the icing on the cake! Thank you for being you!" 
I love how these turned out and they were a huge hit with the teachers.



Divided the cake batter


Love this food color...so many colors. I used a 50% coupon I had for Michael's craft store to get this set.

Mixed my colors


Put them in ziplock bags and arranged the color. I clipped the corner to fill the jars (same in THIS post)


I removed the lids since they had a rubber edge and put all the jars in the dishwasher the night before. When done I dried and added each color carefully NOT to get it on the edge, inside of the jar, or the outside. It burns the jar making it look dirty. Using the ziplock bag made it easy and no mess.



Adding colors until I was done


I could fit 12 jars in a 9X12 baking pan with 1/4 inch of water in the pan.  I filled all the jars just a little less then 1/2 but you can go up to 1/2. I just wanted to make sure I had room for the icing.


350 degrees for 40 minutes



Put the lids back on and added the icing and sprinkles

OOOOHHHH AAAAHHHHHH! So cute!





Ribbon and spoons


Can't forget the tags!! I also added a tag to the top that said the teachers name and my boys names.

I also made these cakes for Christmas for the teachers in THIS POST

I found all these cute bling desk/office supplies on clearance at Micheal's last year. Prices ranged between $.75 to $1.75. WHAT A DEAL!!! I ended up going to every store in the city buying everything they had. :) 

Found them in pink and purple.

Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree will have inexpensive office supplies that will work perfect.


Supplies:
Ceramic pots
Floral foam
Dowels
 Hot glue
Double sided tape
Shredded paper
Ribbon (optional)
Office supplies - pen, ruler, stapler, and calculator

I spray painted the pots black and another coat with glitter spay. Then hot glued the floral foam to the bottom of the pot.


Hot glued dowels to back of the packaging and measured for size. Cut dowels down if needed.

Ribbon around the pot and a dab of hot glue to secure in place. Used shredded paper to cover the floral foam and dowels.

Used double sided tape to attach tags.

The boys had the best time separating the mini M&M's and they had a small bag to eat AFTER they were done.



Then I had fun photographing all the colors :)

We used smaller jars this year since our list of grew this year. All the teachers, nurse, librarian, principal, asst. principal, music, art, and P.E. 

 They are only 2 1/2 inches tall and so cute!
