For my mother's birthday, I bought this cookbook:
and of course some jars to go with it!
But I thought something was still missing, so I used the jars and made one of the recipes - the front cover to be exact - Neapolitan cake. A jar filled with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry cake topped with buttercream frosting. I'm not going to lie, it took a long time to make and put it all together. But the cake was/is delicious, so it was worth it. Mackenzie helped through the first batter, but then left me to go play. ;)
First we had to wash the jars. I also bought a dozen for me because the recipe called for 24. Mackenzie liked rinsing the jars.
Anyways, the buttercream frosting was also made into vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors. The instructions said to put the 3 flavors in piping bags and then into a large pastry bag to make a swirl, but I only had one size bag and 3 bags into one same size bag just didn't work. So, instead each jar just had one flavor icing.
I think I might try baking just regular cakes in jars as a special treat. Not only are they cute, but they are the perfect serving size! Of course I need to finish off the cakes that are in the jars first, but soon I will make more! So delicious!
