Last week I got a super fun shipment in the mail. Cupcakes in a jar for Wicked Good Cupcakes! I'm sure you have seen them all over pinterest but they are something that I would never make. Too many steps. I'm super lazy. But not too lazy to eat. They had been mis-delivered (totally a word) to a neighbor. She brought them over and commented on how she was sure I would want the package because it had cupcakes (thanks to the company's sticker on the package). And then she sort of hung around. I might be wrong but I think she was waiting for me to offer her one. I didn't. Cupcakes make people act crazy sometimes. I took off the box lid and found the cupcake jars wrapped up snug, just waiting to be eaten. The box even contained 4 faux-silver plastic spoons. It was a thoughtful touch.
Wicked Good Cupcakes is based in MA but will ship anywhere in the US. They sell 2 different sizes of cupcakes in a jar and have a variety of flavors to choose from including Hummingbird! Yum! They also have options for customizing labels for special events and offer bulk discounts.
I also got a birthday cake flavor which was white cupcake with a Madagascar Bourbon cream cheese buttercream. Yeah. Also delicious. But what I like about these cupcakes in a jar, more than anything, is that they allow you to send a little celebration to your friends and family around the country. My nieces live in Nevada and I don't often get to spend their birthdays with them. How excited would they be to open up a package of cupcakes?! And my husband's cousin and cousin's wife just bought a new house in Connecticut. What a great housewarming present!
*I was sent the cupcakes in a jar to review. All opinions are mine.
