Smaller Jar muffin mix...

I have a few of these decorative jars left so have worked out measurements so that i can still make the ingredients in a jar presents.
The large jar is a 200g Nescafe coffee jar, the smaller one is 150ml.This muffin mix is already premixed and only needs water adding so doesnt need layering with all the seperate ingredients.
The way to work out what ratio of mix to water is needed you will need to work out how much fits in the jar - pop the empty jar on the scales and set the dial to zero.After the muffin mix was added it worked out that there was 1/4lb so you need to scale down the water to add according to the mix list on the back of the pack. You should also write on the label how many this will make - ie 2 LARGE muffins, 4 cupcake size muffins or 8/12 mini muffins (sweet cases) Sometimes i find the smaller they are the nicer they are - obviously change cooking times accordingly too. :)Fill the lid with optional sweets to top the cakes or with the little sweet cases etc. Pop the ribbon around, fastening on the instruction label and voila another little hamper pressie :)
