Cupcake jar 1

Present the object of your affection with… an object of your affection. A jar is the perfect container for a cupcake dressed in its Valentine’s Day best (not to mention a safe way to deliver your message).

Cupcake jar 1


  • Use already-frosted store-bought cupcakes or follow your favorite cupcake and frosting recipe
  • 1 Jar big enough to hold one cupcake per cupcake
  • 1 Toothpick per cupcake
  • Scissors
  • Festive red or pink ribbon
  • Double-sided tape


  1. Print and cut out our cupcake wrapper (below) and secure it around your treat with a bit of double sided tape.
  2. Tape the cupcake topper to a toothpick and pop it into the frosting.
  3. Put a small piece of tape on the inside of the jar lid and set the cupcake on top.
  4. Carefully place the jar upside down over the cupcake.
