Red Velvet Wedding Cake In A Jar
Five years ago this week, Jeff and I got married. Our wedding and reception were at the University of Michigan, where we met. It rained all morning and threatened to ruin everything (good luck, I hear?), but cleared up by the time of the ceremony. My best friend spent some of her morning discretely bandaging my feet from the blisters my rehearsal dinner shoes had given me. Another friend was our officiant. Still other friends dressed up in pretty dresses and [weird] rental suits and stood up there with us.
What does ANY of this have to do with this week’s #SundaySupper that’s being hosted by Isabel at Family Foodie (the founder of the Sunday Supper movement)? Well, my friends, the theme is desserts inspired by Shaina Olmanson’s fun book, Desserts in Jars: 50 Sweet Treats That Shine.
With this being the week of my 5th anniversary, I knew what I had to do – smush our wedding cake into a jar. The red velvet cake and strawberries of course had to be in there. I swapped the cake frosting out for some lighter whipped cream, and added some almonds, just for crunch. Give it a try for a special occasion, or just any day where you want to feel like a southern belle.
Red Velvet Wedding Cake In A Jar
Yield: Makes 1 pint-sized jar (which is large enough to serve 2 people). Multiply amounts depending on how many jars you want to make.

- 1 tablespoon sliced almonds
- Crumble 1 cupcake into bottom of jar. Add 1/2 cup whipped cream, strawberries and almonds, in layers. Crumble remaining cupcake over almonds, then top with remaining 1/4 cup whipped cream. Grab a friend or loved one, 2 spoons, and enjoy.
