Just Because...Cupckes in a Jar

Cassi was having a little bit of a rough day a couple days ago. I needed to find something to appease her and help make her day better. 
I decided to have her make cupcakes.  She found some strawberry cake mix and went to town. Then I decided we'd put them in jars and give them to her soccer team to celebrate the last local game of the season. Every occasion is a wonderful reason for cupcakes, right?

Today we got the rest of the project finished. Tonight was supposed to be the last game.  (It was canceled but it's a cupcake night anyway!)

I had seen this idea around the internet many times. I found this website and she had the grand idea of making a butter cream icing from powdered sugar which was great because you can pretty much make it as thick or thin as you wish. I made our pourable which was perfect. We even added a few sprinkles on top just for fun.

We cut circles from this cute little soccer-monkey fabric, put a glue-dot on the lid, used a darling little stretchy. fringey, trim and tied that on. We stuck a spoon under the trim and viola, extra-special, extra-fun treats for the evening.
