Red Velvet Cake Jars

5.2.18

Cake in a jar?! Sign me the heck up.

Using boxed cake mix is not my favourite thing to do but when the outcome is this cute, no one really cares! Plus, it makes for an extremely easy Valentine's Day dessert.
Ingredients:
  • Betty Crocker Red Velvet Mix (x2- see notes)
  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles (optional)
  • Hand mixer
  • Cake pan (9x12in)
  • Jars (I found mine at the dollar store!)
  • Valentine's Day washi tape 

Notes:
  1. I used two boxes of mix and doubled the recipe because I wanted to make enough for all of my friends!
  2. A few tricks to make a boxed mix taste better: in addition to the ingredients listed on the back of the cake mix box, add an extra egg, and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter (this has already been accounted for in my ingredient list). 
Step One:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the batter according to the instructions on the box. 

Step Two:

Pour the batter into your greased cake pan. Since I double the recipe, I used a 9x12in pan. Bake for 23-28 minutes. 

Step Three: 

Let the cake cool completely. 

Step Four:

While waiting for the cake to cool, spoon your cream cheese icing into a Ziploc bag. This step is optional but will make things easier when you're ready to pipe the icing into the jars.

Step Five:

When the cake is completely cool, use two forks (or your hands) to crumble the cake. You want to get rid of any large chunks. 

Step Six:

Spoon some of the crumbled cake mixture into the jars. I filled the jar a little bit less than halfway. Cut one corner of your icing-filled Ziploc bag and pipe the icing into the half-filled cake jar. 

Step Seven:

Continue layering until your jar is full. Top with sprinkles, if desired.

Step Eight: (optional)

Stick the washi tape around the lid of the jars for more Valentine's Day flare!

Enjoy! xo
