Everybody loves cupcakes!  Now you can get creative and think outside the box of the traditional cupcakes.  Today we’re making these adorable cupcakes which are cooked inside baby food jars.  I love that I can reuse all my daughter’s baby food jars when she is finished with them and the end result is adorable.  These cupcakes are perfect for birthday parties, holidays, anniversaries, baby shower, bridal shower, play dates and more..the options are endless.  Pick any color cake mix you want, pic the frosting and you’re good to go.

Wondering what makes my cakes so vibrant blue?  I used Duncan Hines Signature Blue Velvet cake mix and it’s delicious.  Duncan Hines Blue Velvet mix is fluffy and light weight.  I love how vibrant the color is in their entire product line!  Now let’s get started on how to make these delicious, adorable Blue velvet cupcakes.  Their Velvet spring line is moist and colorful and perfect for every single occasion.  I’ll be making my mom pink Duncan Hines Velvet cupcakes for Mother’s day!  Duncan Hines is bringing you Pink Velvet, Blue Velvet and Spring Pink & Yellow Velvet so you’re sure to find a color you LOVE!
