Cupcakes make great things to bring to a party, but making cupcakes in a jar is a better route to go if you don't have a special container to transport the baked goods in.
This particular cupcake-in-a-jar guide comes from the My Cakies blog. One of the greatest parts about packaging cupcakes this way is that you can use any cupcake recipe that you like and you don't even have to be that precise with the way you decorate them. To assemble the cupcakes, My Cakes begins by placing half of the cupcake in the jar, followed by a layer of frosting, the top half of the cupcake and then more frosting. Rather than getting icing on your nose trying to eat a whole cupcake, with this method, it's much easier to scoop out cupcake and frosting bits with a spoon.
