To make these You Take the Cake Jars, you will need

Mason Jars

Cake- Make a recipe of your favorite cake (box mix is fine). Follow directions for baking in a 9×13 pan. Let cool completely.

Frosting- Make your favorite frosting recipe

Any Add In (optional)- I put peanut butter chips in my jars.  You could also easily do M&M’s, crushed Oreos, toffee, chocolate chips



Using a round cookie cuter, glass, or other such item, cut a cake round slightly smaller than the width of your mason jar.  Press into the bottom of the mason jar. Top with a layer of butter cream, then add in, then another layer of frosting and finally one more layer of cake.  Cap jars with lids.
