Mason Jar Cake

As the holidays begin approaching it is time to starting coming up with some easy gift ideas. One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to cook, so I decided that for some easy gifts I would bake! So here is a quick picture tutorial on how to make a Mason Jar Cake!

Head over to your local grocery store and pick up a box of your favorite cake mix and frosting. Some grocery stores have mason jars available for purchase but most don't. Try checking out a craft store or something similar to World Market to find a mason jar.
Once you have all your supplies start preheating your oven, mixing the cake and allowing it to cook. After your cake has been cooked begin breaking up the sheet cake into crumbs. Use a fork to smash and crumb the cake into a bowl.
Now its time to start the mason jar layering! Take the crumbs, and using a spoon or fork, pour them into the bottom of your mason jar. Use your utensil and push the crumbs to the bottom of the jar, make sure you squeeze as much cake as possible into each layer.

Next take your frosting and add it on top of the cake layer. Like you did with the cake, push as much frosting as you can into the layer. The frosting gets a little messy! so try your hardest to keep the edges of the jar clean and if not you can always wet a paper towel and clean the edges.
Repeat the cake-then-frosting combination until your jar is filled to the top. Make sure you end with frosting! 
Once your jar is filled add your last minute gift details. Tie a bow around the neck of the jar and add a spoon to the tie! 
Andddddd taaadaaaa! You have an adorable, easily made gift!
