Hello Tumblr fam… It’s def been a while!!! Well today I made jar cakes for my brother in Afghanistan 🇺🇸.
I’ll fill you guys in on how I did this in case you have a deployed solider 😊
What you’ll need…. Box of your soldiers fav cake, 8oz mason jars with lids (I got mine from food depot for $7. They also sell them at Publix.)
Step 1: Boiling the jars and lids (I boiled them for about 20mins)
Step 2: while you’re boiling the jars and lids mix the cake according to the directions on the box.
Step 3: Once the jars are heated, use tongs to remove them from the water. Continue to boil the tops.
Step 4: Dry the jars and spray inside with cooking spray.
Step 5: Fill the jars halfway with cake mix. (remember the cake will rise while baking)
Step 6: Place all of the jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 20mins. (of course you should insert a toothpick to make sure it’s fully baked)
Step 7: Remove the jars from the oven. (BE SURE NOT TO PLACE THEM ON THE COLD COUNTER! The glass will shatter. )
One by one take the lids out of the boiling water and screw them on to the jarred cake. (I used a dish towel to protect my hands while screwing the tops)
After a few minutes you will hear the jar pop. This means that the cake is sealed.
Step 8: Mail off to your solider… He’ll love you more than he already does!! 😊…. Make sure you include a spoon for him to eat with.
