Cupcakes in a Jar

thank you to all of you who commented or emailed me with prayers and uplifting thoughts for our struggling friends and family.... you really touched my heart and I am so grateful for this wonderful blogging community.
thank you. thank you. thank you.

I made some pumpkin cupcakes (because I am currently obsessed with pumpkin) for a few of the formentioned friends and thought I would share the super cute packaging with you...

start with the cooled pumpkin cupcakes, and a fresh batch of buttercream frosting, I also made some simple crumb topping (brown sugar, cinnamon, flour) layer cupcake bottom, frosting, crumb, cupcake top, frosting crumb each in the jar and top with a cupcake liner. I used a drink tray from McDonalds (=free) on the first set and just tied forks to the others...









Edited to add:

I did an additional post with the recipes and some more details.... 
check it out here
(and thanks for all the blog love on this post! I'm so glad yall' are enjoying the cupcakes in a Jar... I'll have to do them again soon!)

Were these an idea out of a magazine? I can't find an article anywhere, but a friend of mine just did hamburger theme cupcakes in a jar like these and my neighbor just did ice cream theme cupcakes in a jar too. It is such an adorable idea!
