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
