Good question! A Cake Jar is just that—colorful layers of delicious cake layered with handcrafted buttercream frosting in a convenient, perfectly-portioned jar. Our Cake Jars are locally made in a bakery in Northbrook, Illinois. Our Cake Jar recipe uses unbleached flour, fresh eggs, and real sugar. We have worked hard to “outlaw” overly processed ingredients too; “high-fructose corn syrup” is not invited to our party. Cake Jars can be carefully customized to reflect your own event.

How can the cake jars help my event stand out?

We thought you would never ask! (But so happy you did!) Cake Jars are “the next big thing!” We have positioned them as the new cupcake. Cake Jars are easily stackable so they’re the perfect display for a sweet table. They’re ideal as favors or giveaways as they’re easily transportable. Cake Jars are also a great traditional “table-service” dessert option as they can be pre-set or served, depending on your event’s timing and objectives. They are show-stopping, buzz-worthy, and incredibly social-media friendly; they photograph beautifully and your guests will swoon over them! Finally, because our Cake Jars are made locally there is no need to rely on a shipping company. Your order of Cake Jars will be conveniently delivered right to your venue the day of your event. No worry, no hassle!

Customizable? Can you explain?

Absolutely! Cake Jars can be made in a wide spectrum of colors to match your event’s theme, logo, and overall style. Our pastry chefs can create ANY color and at ANY saturation. We enjoy a challenge, so bring on the color wheel—we can match anything!

Our Cake Jar Color and Flavor Guide is a great reference to the endless possibilities we can create! Cake Jars can be flavored to your heart’s desire! Our creative team has come up with some delicious flavor options and profiles to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. However, we are thrilled to brainstorm with you to come up with new ideas and any additional flavors or combinations. Cake Jars can be personalized with your own graphic or logo. Just send us your art work (or let us create one for you!) and we can print labels and adhere them to the Cake Jar lid. Voila! The Cake Jar is now 100% yours!



We would love to! Our jar was carefully designed and sourced by Jar Bar’s founder, Karen Firsel. They are made out of light, clear-as-glass, BPA-free plastic, so they won’t shatter or break during an event. The jars can be hand-washed and reused. In fact, they are great to store just about anything, from spices to Q-tips, to paperclips, and pre-portioned snacks. And because our jars are environmentally friendly, they are easily recyclable.


  • Custom Cake Jar orders are required to be placed 2-4 weeks prior to the event date
