This is very popular for party favours and wedding favours, and its great if you want to take a treat somewhere and you have to drive for a while.
These ones have pink ribbons and white spoons, and are filled with cappuccino cupcakes with cappuccino icing, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla icing, and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing!
These ones have gold ribbons and wooden spoons (which are hard to find sometimes so not always available), and are filled with vanilla and chocolate marble cupcakes with chocolate icing, and vanilla and red velvet marble cupcakes with cream cheese icing!
Josh and Bronwyn got married at Shepstone Gardens this weekend past, and the coordinator Nina was kind enough to send me pictures of the finished set up!
The cake and cupcakes-in-jars are Victoria sponge filled with a raspberry butter cream. The cake topper was provided by the bride and along with the flowers was added at the venue.
The ribbons and thank you tags on the jars were provided by the bride the stand belongs to Shepstone.
I was honoured and flattered to do the cake and cupcakes for Bronwyn & Josh – they live in the UK and had tasted my cupcakes before so when they were planning their wedding in Joburg they decided I had to do the cake and cupcakes for their wedding!
This is my latest offering and it is perfect for party favours, wedding favours, corporate gifts, gifts for teachers… just about anyone would enjoy getting one of these!
The jars will have a sticker on them bearing my logo and the baking instructions, and you can then add your own message tag to the ribbon (which I can also match to the colour of your choice as closely as possible).
The stickers can also be customised- to a degree- to include a personal message along with the instructions.
These brownies are super easy to make, with a yield of between 10 and 12 cupcake sized brownies. Personally, I like making brownies in cupcake trays because then all my brownies have that divine crispy outside and a gooey inside, and these jars are not big enough to fill a more traditional brownie pan.

Phumzile planned her wedding from overseas and we did all our communicating via email! Today she was crazy busy setting up for her wedding at River Place when I arrived, and she gave me the cake toppers she had brought with her. With flowers from Pink Energy, I finished the decorating of the cake and placed it on a stand supplied by the venue.
The cake is red velvet and cream cheese icing, covered with white sugar paste ruffles.
She also ordered vanilla cupcakes-in-jars as wedding favours for her guests, with white lids and light grey ribbons.
It was all looking so pretty when I left – I hope the rest of their day was spectacular!
