Cake mix in a jar gift

A homemade treat for cake lovers

Cake mixes don’t always enjoy the best reputation ‒ but because this cake-in-a-jar is homemade, it’s rather special and suitable for any occasion. It would make a great present that your family and friends would be delighted to receive (as long as you’re not tempted to eat it yourself beforehand!).You could even add your own personalised label. The best pen for drawing on glass is the edding gloss paint marker. With its paint-like, opaque ink, it’s the perfect choice for all smooth surfaces, even dark ones.
