This store makes cupcakes in a jar-What an awesome idea!
The story on how this began is very interesting, so I just took the owner's description from their site so you can read it for yourself.
(quoted from her site)
"****Who I Am And How It All Started***I am a proud mama of two beautiful boys, and an adorable baby girl, and wife to a wonderful husband (I made him a Fat Daddy LOL!). I have been baking since I've been walking and after years of hearing "you should sell this stuff, its delicious!!" I have finally decided to share my love for baking with others. Deciding on selling my infamous CUPCAKES was a no brainier, they are by far the most amazing things I have ever pulled out of the oven....moist, rich, sweet, delectable, mouthwatering big cups of goodness. I am a true cupcake aficionado. I love everything about cupcakes. I love baking them; I love decorating and packaging them. I love eating them and smelling them. I love giving them as gifts to other people, and I even love things that look like cupcakes.......but how on earth can I ship such a delicate babycake???? Well it finally hit me one day.....CUPCAKES IN A JAR! So after months of trial and error I have finally perfected a unique and functional way of sharing these classic treats...THE ORIGINAL CUPCAKES IN A JAR™"
Yummy! That's the word that comes to my mind.
Want to see some photos? Of course you do!
They have a 6 and 12 month cupcake of the month that would make great gifts and with Valentine's Day coming, I think these would warm anyone's heart. I know mine would get all warm and cozy.
Don't worry about safety either, because they are a fully LICENSED bakery in Illinois.
So, go visit and buy some for someone or for yourself- I would hide them though, because you might have to plead temporary insanity if a family member tries to take one.
