I love how this Edible Play Dough in a Jar Cupcake turned out! Yes just in case you didn’t know there is edible play dough.  This is such a unique party favor so I can’t wait for you to try it out at your next gathering or for a Valentine’s Day class treat.

Guess what kind of cupcake this is? Chocolate! the edible play dough is chocolate flavored. You can find the Chocolate Play Dough Recipe I used here. You can make it any flavor or even non-edible either way it’s adorable!

What you will need:

  • Chocolate Play Dough Recipe
  • Baby Food Jar
  • Fabric
  • Cotton
  • Glue
  • Ribbon

1. Take your cotton and round it then glue it onto the baby food jar top.


2. Cut out fabric to fit around the top of the lid. I started with a square and then cut the ends in scalloped form.

3. Once your fabric fits right glue it to the top.

4. Add ribbon.
