So, my sister has been going on at me for a while ‘Why don’t you make cake jars?’ and I didn’t really have an answer for her.
When I do wedding cake tastings I normally have lots of cake left over which usually gets eaten by family – here’s where the jars come in.
You use your cake cut offs and layer the jars up with the buttercream to create cake in a jar. You can do this with cake you have made specially too, however, it’s a great way not to waste any you may have left.
Here’s what I did:
- Clean and sterilise your jars
- Add a layer of sponge to the bottom of the jar
- Follow by piping a layer of buttercream on top of the sponge
- Depending on what you are making you may wish to add a layer of jam – for example if you are making a Victoria Sponge cake jar
- Repeat from step 2 until the jar is full
- Eat now or save for later!
Top tip: Don’t add too much buttercream – the jars can be deceiving and although they may look great they will be far too sweet!
These jars look brilliant and are great for eating with friends as a yummy treat!
I will be offering Cake Jars from time to time via my Facebook page so keep an eye out.
