Mason Jar Cake Gifting

Instant Cake in a Mason Jar - Gift for Christmas

My daughter-in-law, Kim, gave me a heads up on this recipe and I did a post on this last summer but I wanted to give an update on it. Here it is.

During this Christmas season I want to focus on a few things and probably in this order.

1. Food gifts and how to wrap them creatively

2. Christmas ornaments (I LOVE making ornaments - easy, pretty, unusual ornaments like the Christmas popcorn glass ball ornament).

3. Luscious food for the holidays.

4. Christmas decorating - trees, mantels, etc.

This post is one of the food gifts and how to wrap them creatively. Hope you like it.

3-2-1 Cake Mix in a Mason Jar Recipe

Mix together in a plastic bag:
1 package of angel food cake
1 package chocolate cake mix

Here comes the 3-2-1 part:

Mix and beat together in a small bowl or mug.

3 Tablespoons of mix

2 Tablespoons of water
1 Minute in the microwave

Fill the jars with the mix and decorate the jar!  I used white burlap folded around the center of the jar and then wrapped with ribbon... I love buttons. Do you? So cute.

Happy Fall!

  1. wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to many entries! i follow thousands and it s very hard to remember all of them and takes hours to fill these out...sorry but too much esp when rafflecopter doesnt fill out your info or the links properly either! i appreciate it is a lot of money and that y'all trying to get more exposure, but what about those of us already following? rafflecopter doesnt highlight or anything to show you follow already or like, etc unless you hit the link, if there is one, then go to the page. then you see........ just waaaaayyyyyy to many steps for such a long entry form. :(

  2. I love this idea to dress up a jar, and I am thinking holiday gifts :)

  3. These are lovely gifts and I am sure they will make the recipients smile HUGE xo

  4. Where did you find the Mason Jar with the wire bale closure? I love them.

  5. I don't know why Rafflecopter isn't autofilling your screen name once you've entered for one source, like Pinterest or Twitter, but that's a problem for Rafflecopter to address, not the giveaway host. Same goes for people who already follow from various social media sources; it's not the giveaway host who's responsible for the coding that Rafflecopter uses and since it's free I can't understand why you're complaining about having to make all of maybe three clicks to remember if you follow someone or not before clicking "enter".
    And it may be long, but if you pay attention you'll notice that they're NOT all REQUIRED to enter, just multiple chances and thus higher odds of winning. If you know you follow someone through a source you don't have to click the link, just click enter. If you can't remember if you do or not, well that's no one elses fault or problem but yours. If you don't want to sit through and click on everything and enter all the possible chances, then don't do it. Whining about multiple chances to win a giveaway taking less than 10 seconds for each entry makes you sound like a spoiled and lazy child. This is a huge amount of money to be giving away and to complain about the insanely easy and FREE process only serves to make YOU look bad.

  6. What a brilliant idea!! People must love to be on your Christmas list!! :) Thanks for sharing this with us at Foodie Fridays...I love it! I hope you will be joining us again this Thursday night! Pinning!
