Red Velvet Cake in a Jar ~ Recipe ~ Baking Love ~

Just realised I have shown you the baking blogs I love, pinterest pic's, and jar re purposing however after all my Cake in a Jar lovin' I have totally forgotten to tell you about my Cake Jar recipe!

Well problem solved here it is:


  • 3oz Self Raising Flour
  • 1oz Cocoa Powder
  • 4oz Marg
  • 4oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • Vanilla Essence
  • Red food colouring

  • Cream Cheese Frosting:

    • Cream
    • Cream Cheese
    • Icing Sugar
    • Vanilla Essence
    Pretty simple just mix everything together and bake!!!
    I baked mine in lined cake tins and baked for 10-20 mins at 160C

    Again for the frosting just mix it all together, I know I have no measurements, I just put a spoon of cream and cheese in a bowl and mix and hope for the best!!! Add your sugar a little at a time to your own persona taste!!!

    Now the Jar part!

    Ok you probably have seen my organisation, I love storage Jars post, (if not tut tut here it is) so I have repurposed my old food jars.

    Once my cake has cooled I used the open jar to cut cake to the right size to get into the Jar. Then I started layering inside the jar with cake, raspberry jam, creamy frosting and repeat.

    Delicious and because I used chalk paint on my jars I can write peoples names and what it is on the jars! (and reuse for others later)

    Hope you like it!!!



    1. This looks super cute! I could never make it though because I have no idea what those measurements mean - stilly American measurements!

      1. No bother to you, sure that's what google is for!!!
        I thought America worked in oz/ounces???
        I can't really get my head around grams? Which is what my Paddy's Day cake was in, (did not expect to use so much of everything)but my scales has both measurements on it!!!

    2. I'm definitely going to give this a go, I love red velvet cake!x

      1. Do it and send me a pic!!! Thanks hun xx
