Cupcake Cookie Jar

Cupcake Cookie Jar

I’m a big fan of using airtight containers for food storage for a variety of reasons, including increased freshness and longer shelf life of the foods you’re storing. Most of my containers are on the utilitarian side. But I have a soft spot for old fashioned cookie jars, both for nostalgia and for the fact that they make for a much more appealing presentation than a Rubbermaid container. This Cupcake Cookie Jar is a perfect example of this. The jar looks just like a giant cupcake ( complete with sprinkles and a cherry on top), with a cupcake wrapper for the base and icing for the lid. The fact that it looks like a tasty treat itself gets you in the mood to indulge just looking at it.

I also like the fact that this cookie jar is not too big, just 7.5in in diameter by 9in high. It holds enough for a couple of servings so anything you put inside will stay nice and fresh as it gets eaten. I’d still stick to the utility containers for practical reasons, but this is still one cupcake I wouldn’t mind indulging in.

    Love it! I just started collecting cookie jars (more just for looks than cookie storage) and need to put this one on my list!
