Preheat oven at 325. Place a baking sheet onto middle rack and
remove top rack from oven. Before starting batter, wash jars, lids,
and rings in hot soapy water and let drain, dry, and cool to room
temperature. Generously prepare inside of jars with margarine To
prepare batter, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and cinnamon in a
mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine margarine, water, cocoa
powder, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla. Divide batter among 3 jars
(should be slightly less than half full). Carefully wipe rims clean,
then place jars on baking sheet (or they'll tip over) in the center
of oven. Bake 40 minutes. Keep lids in hot water until they're used.
When cakes are done, remove jars which are HOT from oven one at a
time. If rims need cleaning, use moistened paper towel. Carefully put
lids and rings in place, then screw tops on tightly shut. Place jars
on a wire rack; they will seal as they cool.
Once jars are cool, decorate with round pieces of cloth and then glue
on flowers, ribbons, etc. on lid, ring and side of jar. Unscrew the
ring (the lid should be sealed by now) and place a few cotton balls
on top of the lid (makes it poofy on top), then a piece of cloth
(about 3" larger than the lid) on top and screw the ring back on.
Decorate as desired (example pinking shears).
