I have become a bit obsessed with mason jars and seem to be using them for a myriad of things. From baking cakes in them (See photo below of Lekach for Mivtzoim and a gift at my daughters Bas Mitzvah to stacking gelt in them! This makes a great gift to friends, Baal Habatim, community leaders and can even be used in local stores who may wish to offer a sweet Chanukah treat! I love making my labels on http://www.myownlabels.com and hope you will too!
A little twine and a layer of parchment paper, covered by brown craft paper gives these Honey cakes a rustic look. Make sure to fill your jars only half way with batter and if you’d like, attach a wooden spoon for convenience:). Bake at regular temperature however the time may need to be adjusted. Yum!
Any kind of Mason Jar will do, however these are a little classier! Something about that little band of orange rubber! Kind of makes it all come together!
