Chances are you know someone with tons of baby food jars just hanging around waiting to be re purposed.  How about serving cupcakes in them at your next baby shower?  You can get as elaborate at you like with this idea.  Dollar Tree has a great assortment of little baby shower trinkets to hang from the jars.  You can make your cupcake batter from scratch or use a cake mix and make a delicious frosting from scratch.  Sterilize the jars and use goo gone to get the sticky label off.

Baking Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Fill the jars half way NOTE:  Make us sure you only fill them half way otherwise they will rise too far up to add frosting.  Did your cupcakes rise too far?  No worries just take a spoon and scoop some of the cake out to make room for your frosting.  No one will be able to tell the difference.  Bake 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  This is a LBC original!

    • I didn’t spray them. Remember you don’t have to try to get the cake out. Your guests will be using a fork. But you can if you want. I like to leave it dry so the cake has something to grip onto as it’s rising. 🙂

      • Thank you Sheryl for answering my question.I am making these tonight for a baby shower Saturday.I hope they come out as cute as yours.Thanks for the idea.

  1. Im making baby bottle labels to wrap around the jar and frosting the top to resemble a baby bottle! Thanks so much for such a clever baby shower cupcake!

  2. I really like the jars for cupcakes and so forth. In fact, I will be thinking very seriously about doing something like this for my son and DIL next year as things progress.
