  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180 C

  • Step 2

    Beat the sugar and butter until creamy

  • Step 3

    Add in the eggs and a teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • Step 4

    Sieve in the flour and add the baking powder. Mix until you have a creamy cake mix.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the oven for around 15-18 mins

  • Step 6

    Once the cupcakes are completely cool. Cut the cupcakes in half, horizontally. I used two bases and one top per jar but you can use more or less depending on the size of you jars.

  • Step 7

    Put a bottom half of a cupcake at the bottom of the jar. Add a dollop of jam on top. I heated my jam up slightly in a pan to take away the "jar shape" of it.

  • Step 8

    Whip up some whipping cream and pipe or scoop in over the jam. Add in some sliced up strawberries.

  • Step 9

    I then added another bottom of a cupcake followed by another layer of jam, whipped cream and strawberries. I then added the top of a cupcake.

  • Step 10

    I then finished of the look by wrapping some twine around the top and tying on a wooden spoon for each jar. You can do what you want here. You can add lace, ribbon or anything you want.
