Since things have been a bit stressful around here, it completely slipped my mind that it was Teacher Appreciation Week. A mom from Carys’ class mentioned this morning, and I rushed home, hoping to have enough time to bake a little something for Carys’ teacher.
Then I remembered a clever little gift my friend Christine made. I saw it and thought, “How cute!”, but it never dawned on me that she had made them this week for Teacher Appreciation. This week.
So, I baked. I frosted. I sprinkled. I jarred. I ribboned. (And if that’s not a word, it should be.)
Thank you Christine – you always have the best (and cutest) ideas!
Make it yourself:
Thoroughly clean & dry half pint Mason jars.
Bake cupcakes normally.
When cool (I put mine in the fridge since I was short on time), cut cakes in half and place one portion in jar.
Layer with icing, then sprinkles.
You should be able to fit 2 cupcakes, maybe 1.5.
