This is fun to make and fun to receive. It is easy to transport and has even survived the post. A good way to reuse old jars that you like the look of.

Once the sponge has cooled, use the lid of your jar as a template.

Cut out a circle of sponge and place it in the bottom of the jar.
Next add a good layer of raspberry jam.
Next add a layer of buttercream.
Place another circle of sponge on top to create the next layer.
