I have always had a hard time throwing away glass baby food jars (and after four kids, I have gone through plenty of them!). They are so cute and sturdy, and there are so many different ways that they can be reused.
Who can resist a piece of colorful cake that is baked up and served in a cute little jar?!? Not me.The cake colors can be customized to fit the occasion, party colors, favorite colors, etc., and is a great way to regulate the amount of cake a child eats. One jar per kid.
- Cake Mix (I used 2 boxes of Betty Crocker vanilla)
- Food Coloring (I used the gel colors- they come out brighter than the liquid kind)
- Baby Food Jars
No more than halfway!
Now that your cakes are all made, you can leave the jars as is, or you can decorate them if they are for a party or special occasion. I piped some frosting on the cake, and added some rainbow sprinkles.
Aren’t they cute? Hope you enjoyed this! I’ll be making these for my son’s second birthday party later this year, because I love the portion size. Leave a comment and tell me what you think!!

I used the same rainbow cake concept for my daughter’s Under the Sea party cake using different colors of blues.
You can check out the entire under the party here for tons of ideas that you can use for an ocean or mermaid party, too!
You can also use tape to decorate inexpensively! See how I did it for my daughter’s Minnie Mouse birthday party here.
