Like everyone else we know, we love cupcakes. They’re a treat for the eyes as well as the tummy – and, above all, they’re really cute.
We’re always on the lookout for new foodie treats to offer our customers and with our new cupcakes in jars we think we can start a movement of jar people. If cupcakes are like sweet little babies, cupcakes in jars are like sweet little babies in prams with the rain cover on to keep them safe and snug.
The beauty of a cake in a jar lies in its presentation, long life, novelty value and portability. A modern twist on the age-old tradition of preserving food in jars, our delightful individual jar cakes can be used as wedding favours, Easter gifts, corporate gifts, birthday treats or as a present for any occasion, no matter how near or far away your loved one may be.
Cakes when stored in jars can stay fresh for as long as six months – although it’s rare indeed that these tempting morsels are left on the shelf for that long! Perfectly preserved, the cakes stay fantastically fresh and marvellously moist, and their protective glass shell means they travel extremely well so are ideal for picnic hampers or as gift ideas for posting to families and friends who live further afield.
If you don’t fancy seeking out a moist cupcake recipe yourself, you can buy handmade gifts of prettily presented cupcakes in jars from Forman & Field. The cupcake recipes on offer include the decadent Chocolate Nutter, the intensely zesty Lemon Passion, the dignified elegance of Simply Vanilla and the classic Victoria Sponge.
If it’s an Easter gift you’re looking for, then forget the chocolate this year and try something different – Easter cupcakes in jars that are cuter than a bunny in a tutu and ballet shoes. If you’re hosting a street party for the UK Diamond Jubilee celebrations, how about trying out our patriotic cupcake ideas? Emblazoned with red, white and blue Union Jacks, these individual cupcakes will liven up any flagging celebration.
The possibilities of cakes in jars are endless and limited only by your imagination. If you fancy having a go, why not try baking some moist cupcakes and icing them with loving messages? Individual cupcake wedding cakes allow guests to take a little reminder home with them of your special day – and the cake travels so much better than when wrapped in a serviette!
Cake jar gifts don’t even have to be baked. A ‘cookie mix in a jar’ allows the recipient to enjoy not only the taste of your favourite recipe, but also the aromas of freshly baked cookie dough in their own home.
A cake in a jar helps you to preserve the moment and give a gift that stays as fresh as the moment it emerged from the heat of the oven. With no additives and recyclable packaging, what could make a more modern, or cuter, food gift?
