Mason Jar Funfetti Layer Cakes


  1. For the cake
    1 box vanilla cake mix
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    3 eggs
    2 tablespoons multicolored sprinkles
    8 pint mason jars
  1. For the frosting
    2 cups whipped cream, handmade or store brand
    4 ounces cream cheese
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Additional multicolored sprinkles


  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚F.
  2. Follow the box directions for making the cake batter, then add the multicolored sprinkles to the mix. Pour into a greased 13-by-9-inch baking pan and bake 23-28 minutes.
  3. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  4. To make the frosting, use a hand mixer to combine the whipped cream, cream cheese, and vanilla. Chill in the fridge.
  5. To assemble, use a round cookie cutter just smaller than the mouth of the mason jar to cut rounds from the sheet cake. Place a spoonful of the whipped cream cheese frosting at the base of the mason jar, top with some multicolored sprinkles, then with a round of the funfetti cake. Repeat the layer, finishing with more frosting and sprinkles.
