Maleficent Cake Jar Recipe

Maleficent Cake Jar

“The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But, before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday…she should enjoy cake!”

Even though Maleficent didn’t say the last part of this quote in her curse, we think she would be in better spirits if cake was offered at Princess Aurora’s birthday celebration. Today, we are showing you how to create this incredible dessert based on everyone’s favorite Disney villain!


1.) Cake

  • Vanilla Cake Mix
  • Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 eggs
  • Purple food coloring

2.) Icing

  • 1 pound unsalted butter
  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • Electric green food coloring

3.) Toppings

  • Black fondant
  • Purple sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine vanilla cake mix, 1 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 3 eggs into a large bowl. Add purple food coloring and stir until combined.
  3. Combine chocolate cake mix, 1 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 3 eggs into a large bowl.
  4. Scoop 1/4 cup of purple cake batter into mason jar. Add 1/4 cup of chocolate cake batter. Continue to alternate layers of purple and chocolate cake batter until mason jar is half full.
  5. Fill a baking pan with a thin layer of water. Place cake jar on pan. Bake cake jar at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes.
  6. While cake jar is baking, roll fondant into 1″ balls. Shape into horns.
  7. To prepare mint icing, combine unsalted butter, powdered sugar, milk, and peppermint extract into a bowl. Add electric green food coloring.
  8. Once cake jars have cooled, pipe icing on top of the cake. Add purple sprinkles, and place two horns to finish the look.

The mason jar dessert tastes just as good as it looks! It’s a great dessert to bring to a Disney party.
