CUPCAKE IN A JAR: A TUTORIAL

When I came across this item, I almost started to weep uncontrollably...thats because its Cupcakes in a Jar!. This little ditty is from the lovelies over at Cakies with a red velvet cupcake taking center stage.
Adapted from a Paula Dean recipe, Cakies tweaked the recipe for their own use:

{CAKIES RED VELVET CUPCAKES}
Ingredients:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- *2 1/4 tsp cocoa powder
- *1 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 tbsp red food coloring
- 1 tsp white distilled vinegar
- *2 tsp vanilla extract for the cream cheese frosting:
- 1 pound cream cheese, softened
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- *2 tsps vanilla extract
- 4 cups sifted powdered sugar


FOR THE FULL TUTORIAL GO TO:
CAKIES CUPCAKE IN A JAR

You can really make any kind of cupcakes you would like, its just the red and white colors of the red velvet and frosting are a nice contrast. But, I can really see this with Carrot Cake Cupcake and sour cream frosting or Chocolate Cupcake with Buttercream frosting....just any cupcake that has a nice color contrast between the cupcake and frosting.
