My comment relates to blog earlier today about diy gifts.

Almost 3 yrs ago, daughter & I used "Cake Doctor" recipes to make cakes and baked them in large wide mouth canning jars. It all started when science class was studying how tightly sealed jars preserved foods. Fill jars about 2/3 full with prepared mix. It's best to set jars on flat cookie sheet or in large cake pan before placing in oven. Watch cake to know when done (each recipe varies) then QUICKLY seal with canning lid. Twist lids on very tightly. I remember her being amazed hearing the lids 'click' as the cooled. Tops can be decorated with fabric squares & tied with ribbons or custom made labels stuck on the jars. You can add the recipe to the gift cards (then the recipients know the contents- in case there's food allergy to be concerned about). Great for singles or senior citizens who don't bake much and they can open a 'fresh' cake when they want it.

Trunkshow - I love the Cake Doctor. This idea fascinates me. This would be something I could even get my 13 year old interested in. Thanks.
