Cupcakes in Jars

by Valerie on February 14, 2009 · 3 comments

So, at this point many cities have many delectable yummy cupcake bakeries. But what do you do if you don’t live in one of those cities, or if you want to make a gift of cupcakes to someone far away. Cupcakes are fragile little things after all.

Answer: you turn to Cupcakes in a Jar. Yes, the same Cupcakes in Jars where I got the wonderful peanut butter truffles. Not only does Danielle have an etsy site, but she just launched her own website. As you can see from the picture above, the cupcake is packed in a little cup made of recyclable plastic, which is then packed into a cute little white gift box. My Vanilla Coconut Cupcake arrived in perfect shape – honestly, if I hadn’t made the mistake to make it spend the night in the fridge, it would have been perfect, but too much time in a very cold fridge dried out the poor little cupcake a bit. Don’t get me wrong, it was still very tasty – just don’t do what I did.

The array of flavors is wonderfully dizzying – when I was picking mine (thank you Danielle for gifting me with a lovely cupcake in a jar! All I had to do was pick the flavor) I really had trouble choosing. Finally, I decided I had been craving coconut cake, so I went with Vanilla Coconut, but the Boston Creme and the White Satin Cake Cup were really tempting too.

So next time you want a cupcake treat in your mailbox or sent directly to a friend, and be sure that the cupcakes will arrive in perfect shape, try Cupcakes in a Jar.

these sound amazing. my favorites at home are Buttercup and City Bakery. So good. And there’s one on University between 13th and 14th that is delish and I always drool as I pass by it on my way to the gym. sigh. I forget the name but I bought a cookie there once and thought I might pass out bc it was so good. They had these cupcakes for valentine’s day that looked ridiculous. I controlled myself though and fought the urge to go in.

I love both Buttercup and City Bakery – sigh – fortunately Hello Cupcake in Dupont Circle is a good substitute!
