Cannabis Cake in a Jar Recipe

What are we celebrating? Whether it's your birthday or just a normal day, this Cannabis Cake in a Jar Recipe is downright delicious and so easy to make.

Made with store bought frosting, a box of cake mix and CannaButter (or Canna Oil - your choice), this is one of our favorite ways to eat our weed. Candles optional.

  • Total Time: 10 min +
  • Yield: 12 1x


  • One box of cake mix (your choice of flavor)
  • One can of frosting (your choice of flavor)
  • 1-12 half-pint mason jar (This recipe will make 12 cakes in a jar. You can make them all at once or one at a time.)
  • Sprinkles
  • 1 teaspoon melted CannaButter or CannaOil per cake in a jar (or more depending on dosage)


  1. Prepare the cake mix according to package instructions.
  2. Bake on a greased half sheet pan. Cake will be thin.
  3. Let cool completely.
  4. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out cake rounds that are slightly smaller than the mason jar opening. You will need 3-4 cake rounds per mason jar.
  5. Place one cake round in the bottom of the mason jar.
  6. Add one teaspoon melted CannaButter or Canna Oil.
  7. Top with frosting and sprinkles.
  8. Repeat until mason jar is full.
  9. Each teaspoon of CannaButter or Canna Oil adds 28 mg of THC. You may want to add one teaspoon per cake or one teaspoon per layer. It's up to you.
  10. Place a lid on your jar. Store in the refrigerator and eat within 7 days or in the freezer within 6 months.
  11. Leftover cake can be eaten or frozen for future mason jar cakes.
