Since I am procrastinating big time..

Thought I would do a little post. I AM working on getting things ready for next week I promise! I am sure you have all seen the cute little canning jars with cupcakes in em.. Yup.. I made some today, but I didn't make the cupcakaes before and then put them in the jars, I put the batter right in the canning jars, I used the small jelly jars (that I got for .29 at goodwill!!) used a little less than a 1/4 cup of batter for each one and lined them up in a glass casserole dish. I had to bake them an extra minute or 2 is all. As soon as I took them out, I poked some holes in each one with a straw and put the frosting on, just enough to get the lid on without overflow, and screwed the lid on. I made Chocolate cupcakes and the frosting is peanut butter.. I am HOPING the frosting will melt a little and go in the holes.. that's my plan anyway. Planning on taking them with us to the hospital (I KNOW I will need a chocolate fix). Hoping they stay nice and fresh and yummy since they ARE airtight.

I originally thought the idea would be good/cute for favors ( with a MINI Ikea kids fork tied on with a ribbon. Or as a teachers gift, especially since it doesn't matter what the top looks like, you can cover the lid with fabric and the ring will go right over thin fabric!

I will miss all the blog reading I usually do when I should be cleaning. Hope I don't miss anything I NEED to know.. and who knows, maybe I will procrastinate a little more and do another post in the next week!


  1. yum! Do you have to do anything to the lids? or just screw them on because the bottoms are hot?

    ...and sending thoughts and prayers your way!

  2. I know nothing about canning.. but I figured since the bottoms were hot it would help seal them.. I tried 1 to make sure and it seems to have worked :)
