|I know, cakes in jars with labels and twine...who am I if not really freakin' Texan.|
|Oh Betty and Duncan, even in an alternate universe, we'd still be besties.|
|Messes were made.|
|Why am I reminded of marshmallow Peeps right now?|
|My, what foxy towels you have.|
|Tongs definitely necessary.|
|Oh look, mini cream pie bites.|
|I'm clever. I know.|
|Straight outta Southern Living.|
|Did you know bubble wrap comes in BLUE? Clearly I did not.|
|Pleeeaaasseee don't break.|
Roll each individual jar cake up with long sections of bubble wrap folded...in half. I was able to fit six mason jar cakes in bubble wrap and three tubs of frosting all in one large flat rate USPS box with extra bubble wrap lining the bottom of the box (again, I was a professional). The other two jar cakes fit into a medium box with some other tightly packed odds and ends. We'll know in two weeks time whether or not they show up in one piece or many and whether they're edible or not (clearly not if broken glass is involved). These were simple and actually quite a bit of fun to make. I now have a higher respect for moonshiners...mason jars really are a blast to work with. I promise I'll update once my husband has been able to quality inspect each cake. 'Til next time, my fellow eaters!
UPDATE: All 8 jars arrived sealed and in one piece, so you can officially thank me for this awesome method of packing. Now your significant other can hoard cakes or use them as currency. Their pick...like prison but tastier and less terrifying.
|Guys, I'm afraid I might start really going over board with twine after this.|
