Brownies in a jar with Margot by Shaky A.

Hi everybody!

I'm back with a new project! I have been fascinated by all these jar recipes that I have seen on internet. I think they are so cute to give as a gift, maybe for a teacher or when you go to visit a friend. And when I first noticed my friend Alberto Gava, a.k.a. LoShakerato Alberto, a.k.a. Shaky A.'s image Margot I new she'd be perfect to decorate one of those jars. So when Alberto asked me if I wanted to be a guest designer my choice was easily made :). Thank you so much sweetie for having me! Here is the project I made with his sweet Margot.
I have filled the jar with a brownies recipe that I found HERE. This Dutch lady, Marieke, has both the Dutch and the English recipe on her blog and she also sells gorgeous labels to decorate a jar if you want a simpler decoration. She uses a smaller jar so I have multiplied the amounts of ingredient to fill up my liter jar. For my Dutch readers/ voor mijn Nederlandse lezers, ik heb de pot gekocht bij Dille & Camille HIER.
The back of my jar holds the instructions that Marieke provides on her blog... in Dutch of course.... but just realized while type this that I should have multiplied the amounts there as well.... oh well, I have it saved so will just print it again and glue over it :).
A close up of sweet Margot, as always colored with my Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
And the side of the jar where you'll see the layers with ingredients. My layers aren't perfect but I read somewhere on her blog later that you get these better if you put pressure on each new layer with a cocktail muddler so I'll try that next time.
And the little pieces that form Margot.

I hope you like my project. I'll bake this first batch of brownies this weekend because I do feel you need to try something first before you give it away (nothing to do with the fact that I love brownies ;) ). I'll post a picture after I've baked them. Hope you all have a great weekend!!
