This is such a great gift idea! These cupcakes in a jar would  make a fantastic treat for anyone. With a lovely ribbon and a spoon tied to the side, these cupcakes in a jar will be sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. 

Method

  1. First make the cake. Preheat the oven to 190ºc/170ºc fan/Gas 5. Grease and line a square 20cm/8 inch tin. 

  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then bake for 25 minutes. To test if it's baked, insert a skewer to the middle, if it comes out clean it means it's ready. If not, just keep baking until it is. 

    • 150g Butter (Unsalted)
    • 150g Silver Spoon Caster Sugar
    • 150g Allinson Self Raising Flour
    • 3 Eggs (Medium)
    • tsp Baking Powder
    • tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
  3. When the cake is cooked allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.

  4. To make your buttercream, mix together in a clean dry bowl the icing sugar. butter, milk and vanilla bean paste. 

    • 115g Butter (Unsalted)
    • 125g Icing Sugar
    • ½tbsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Bean Paste
  5. When you are ready to make the cupcake jars. Cut circles from your cooled cake with the cutter and then divide into quarters. They will easily fit through the neck of the jar to be reassembled within.

  6. Once the cake layer is in the jar, add a table spoon of jam and then pipe the buttercream on top of that. Top with another layer of cake, then jam and then buttercream. Finally add the lid of the jar and tie a ribbon around the jar neck.
