Put the frosting into a plastic bag and cut a corner off to use for a piping bag.

Put a little scoop of purple cake into a jar then pipe a thin layer of frosting over that. Add another color of cake and put on another layer of frosting. Repeat with the other two colors, and the top layer will end with frosting at the top edge of the jar. Make sure the layers of frosting touch the edges of the jar, so you can see the separation of cake layers and frosting layers from the outside of the jar.

Repeat step 5 with the other 3 jars.
