I love having super sweet and generous boys but sometimes it's hard to do on a budget, especially around Christmas. The boys want to give something to ALL the teachers...P.E., Art, Music, Receptionist, Nurse, Principal, Asst. Principal, Librarian, and to their main teachers as well. YIKES!!!! I can't afford notepads for that many so we are making red velvet cakes in mason jars!!! I made these a couple years back and LOVED HOW THEY TURNED OUT!!!
Red velvet cake baked right in the mason jars!
Found these at HEB (grocery store)
I first put all the jars in the dishwasher the night before. I could fit 12 in a 9X12 baking pan with 1/4 inch of water in the pan. I filled all the jars 1/2 way with red velvet cake mix by using a ziplock bag with the corner clipped. Just SQUEEZE and PINCH to fill. SO EASY AND MESS FREE!!!!
350 degrees for 40 minutes
Added the icing and started hot gluing the ribbon and belt
