Peppermint Candy Cane Cake in a Jar


Candy Cane Cake in a Jar

You guessed it – it is time for holiday cakes in a jar! To make this fun one I whipped up a white cake and added a drop of peppermint extract. Then I divided the batter in two, dyed one of them red and layered it in a jar. They turned out to be so much to have as a treat after Thanksgiving. They put us right in the mood for the holiday season. I think I might try this in mini-jam jars next and serve them at a party!

2. Prepare the cake mix according to directions and stir in the peppermint extract. Divide the batter into two bowls and dye one red with the food paste. Layer the cake in three layers. Place the jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes, or until bake through and a cake tester comes out clean.
