One thing a craft hoarding mother of a one year old has plenty of is baby food jars. Unless you make your own...then kudos to you! I made FAVORS for Lotte's First Birthday using baby food jars with jelly bellies. So going with the same idea I wanted to do take away cupcakes in a jar.
I really just loved how Brother's party favors turned out! I used THIS recipe for Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper Cupcakes with Vanilla and Cherry Buttercream Frosting. I made mini cupcakes (without liners) and used 2 in each jar along with 3 layers of frosting.
The baby food jars were washed and sanitized. I very carefully mod-podged matching houndstooth patterned paper on to the top of the lid. Then I hot glued on pom pom trim around the edge...it came in the perfect size.
The spoons were probably my favorite part. I purchased these from Lemon Drop Shop. They were only $2.50 for 50 wooden spoons!!
I stamped "THANKS" on to the handle of each spoon using a lovely aqua colored ink. Mini Color Boxes are my favorites because they are less expensive and come in so many colors.
I attached the spoons to the baby food jars using Caribbean blue twine from The Twinery.
They were delicious, a big hit with guests, and inexpensive. I spent $2.50 on the spoons and about $6.00 on the trim from Walmart. I made 40 baby food jar cupcakes...and I only had about 8 left over.
