That's awesome! I can't wait to assemble some cake mixes!!! Can't wait to see your cake!

SMITH BITES

only one word: LOVE! (the exclamation point doesn't count in the 'one word' part . . .) ok, so one more word: BRILLIANT! (that exclamation point doesn't count in the 'one word' part either . . .)

Jessica @ How Sweet

Love this idea! I like how you packaged it up too. So cute.

TidyMom

FANTASTIC!!! Thanks Amanda!!

morgana

And we can't wait to see that cake either !!!

Thank you for the tip, I love it. And I'll try to make some gifts this way. ;-)

XOXO

Wenderly

Such a darling idea!

Aimee @ Simple Bites

Super, duper smart!! Love this time-saver, Amanda. Thanks!

Nancy

Nifty! Looking forward to seeing the cake. This would be a great idea for a college student. They wouldn't need to have tons of ingredients in their pantry...just the jar of cake waiting to be made.

Renee

I almost never make cake from scratch. I do doctor up my mixes just a tiny bit, and I get rave reviews. I should try scratch sometime...usually I just make my carrot cake that way (which is an easy and awesome recipe IMO :) ) Thanks for sharing!

Barbara

Great idea, Amanda. Nice hostess gift, too. Be fun to put together a basket with all the other necessities.

Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

I love moist, delicious, & yum, too! And I really need a white cake recipe that's all that - so thanks! Can't wait to try it!!

Kas

Terrific idea! Also - you have terrific handwriting!

Jen S

Love it! How would you modify it for yellow and chocolate cake?

Cookbook Queen

What an awesome idea!!!


I've never made my own cake mix, but it seems like such a great way to have homemade cake when you're short on time.

Amber | Bluebonnets & Brownies

I love love love this. So great for gifts too, Amanda!

Hazel

I love it! I do the same thing when I have a lot to bake for an event, but I just use plastic zip bags instead of pretty mason jars. That lets me do as much as I can ahead of time so the cakes/cupcakes can be baked either the day before or day of.

Jessica

Great idea! I may hop onto the jarred dessert band wagon when Christmas comes again.

Joy

Awesome! I can't wait to do this! :)

Addicted to Veggies

THIS is a great gift idea! Thank you for posting!

Tracy

Holy crap - why have I never thought to do this before! I think I love you. No, I KNOW it. ;-)

HeatherChristo

OMG- this is beeeeyond cool. You are such a smarty pants Amanda! How is that little baby coming along? I hope you are hanging in there this last little while :)

Erin

What a great idea!! I love it!

Shaina

Yum. This is a great way to have convenience at your fingertips without the box mix additives. Love.

Brittany

What a fantastic idea! It's great when you're busy!

Kari

How have I not thought of this before?! I'm anticipating a lot of cakes in the near future, and I was sorta banging my head against the proverbial brick wall for volunteering so much work. This will save me a lot of time! Thanks for sharing!

linda

love this cute idea & cannot wait to see your cake (which will be fab) made with these ingredients!

Sue

You're a genius!

Diane {createdbydiane.blogspot.com}

Wonderful idea, I love glass jars and especially love short cuts!!!

Molly Garza

I love your site and the recipes are wonderful. Cannot wait to do my cake mixes! Thank you for the inspiration

Stephanie

That is awesome ... I have always thought it would be a good idea to do this, just never have. Also super impressed that you went outside to shoot that picture. :)

Anita

Great idea, can you change the flavor the cake?

Rachie

Such a fab idea! xo

aimee

Thank you - that is a wonderful idea! I think I will put the mix in freezer bags since I have plenty of those on hand. You have the best ideas!! : )

Lucy Lean

I love this idea - great for gifts

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

This looks wonderful! I think it would be so fun for gifts... And, great to have on hand when I need cupcakes at the last minute (which seems to happen all the time)!

Carmie

Great idea...thanks for sharing.

I stumble your website while looking for recipe. I'm very new to baking esp. from scratch, pardon my silly question, how do you make very fine sugar? Do you mean icing sugar?

Thanks.
Carmie

Amanda Rettke

Great question Carmie! Here is a link that might explain that better!

naomi

Love this, Amanda. What a great time saver!!!! Oh, you are too clever!!

Elle

Love. Love. LOVE! Thank you for sharing!

Kristen

What a great idea!! This would make such a great gift.

Freebies

Now for a gluten free one!!

-jen

Frances

This is great! If you want an even fluffier cake you could use cake flour.

marla {family fresh cooking}

Amanda, thanks for saving us tons of time when we are in a pinch!! I need to do something like this too - it might not look quite as pretty as yours though ;)

Amanda Wallace

Thank you, Thank you! I've always wanted to do this but never had the courage to figure out how. Thanks for the idea, encouragement and recipe!! I'll be making a chocolate one as soon as possible. :)

Amanda Rettke

Great idea Amanda!! You can just add the cocoa right to the dry flour mixture! :)

Memoria

What a cute idea! Question: Did you mention when to add in the dry mix on your instructions?

shari

Great idea, I love to bake and sometimes resort to mixes for the base cake. I would rather make my own and know what is in it. I would add the milk alternately with the flour mix tho.

Kat

That is an awesome idea! Could you give us any pointers on how to make it be chocolate? I would think you just add cocoa to the dry ingredients, but I'm not sure how much. And then I have NO idea how you'd go about making a yellow cake! :-> TYIA!

Lynne

Looks great! I'm not a cake mix person at all! Thanks
