I needed to come up with something cheap for my Laurels (church group) for their Birthdays. They said they wanted me to make them cupcakes and then we sing, "Happy Birthday". But things get too busy and thats alot of cupcakes to make:) So, I thought and thought and came up with this. I got a BIG Mason jar, put the cakemix in that and then typed up the recipe for them. Then of course just made the jar look cute. I also got them some frosting and wraped paper around that as well.
This is the final product. I just wraped the two in some cellaphane and tied it up with a bow. This whole thing probably cost about $2. Not too shabby! The girls were pretty excited about them! Just a thought for all you YW leaders out there, or even good for VT or for a friend. You could even add cupcake liners, candles, put it in a cute basket with that crimpy stringy paper on the bottom. Just a thought!!
