Homemade sweets just hit different! Yes, it is easier to buy cupcakes from the store and just present them to your family. However, to make sure they are fresh and made with the best ingredients, why not do them yourself? Also, you will be adding an extra ingredient that is very important. You will be making them with love, as cheesy as this may sound. What is extra special here? The cupcakes will be in a jar! Freshly packed in a jar, they can last up to 4 to 5 days in a room temperature. If you want them to last longer, you can freeze them. Red velvet cupcakes are the perfect choice for Christmas!

  • 1/4 cups (60 ml) maple syrup (you can add more if you want it more sweet)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix everything in a large bowl and then put the mixture in the jars. Then freeze them in the freezer. When you are going to give them as a Christmas present, remove them from the freezer. Add a tag with instructions that the mixture can be made into cookies and baked on 180 C (350 F) degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
