Red White and Blue Cake In a Jar l


And these couldn’t be easier.

Ever since I made THESE cakes in jars I’ve been itching to make them again. And what could be more perfect for your holiday celebration than these individual cakes?

I mean……………….

For the sake of this post I used what I had on-hand – namely my fave preserves jars. So the recipe below reflects the size and number of layers I got based on the jar’s dimensions. You’ll need to adjust based on the size of your jars, but use my recipe as a guideline!

Red White and Blue Cake In a Jar l

Red, White and Blue Cake in a Jar

1 box white cake mix, batter prepared according to directions
red and blue gel food coloring
white frosting
red, white and blue sprinkles

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees – grease a cookie sheet (about 13″ x 18″) and line with parchment paper.

Divide the cake batter evenly between 3 bowls. Tint one of the bowls of batter red, another blue.

Dollop the batter in spoonfuls onto your baking sheet; use a knife to lightly swirl the colors. Bake for 10 minutes or till a toothpick tests clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then carefully slide the cake onto the rack (using your parchment paper to assist) to cool completely.

Cut the cake into circles, using a cutter that fits into the jars you will be using. I got 24 circles out of mine, using a 2 1/4″ cutter.

Transfer the frosting into a piping bag fitted with a fluted tip (you can use a plain tip if you prefer, or even a heavy-duty ziploc bag with the corner snipped off). Working with one jar at a time, place one circle in the bottom. Pipe a layer of frosting on top, followed by some sprinkles. Repeat 2 more times. Cover the jars and attach a spoon to each. Store in the fridge for up to a week; bring to room temperature to serve.
