dessert first, please!

jar
(1, 2)

How typical of me to have gotten obsessed with dessert ideas for my wedding already. One trend that has won me over: dessert in jars! How cute would it be to have tiny jars of desserts with adorably tiny spoons to match? Think about it! Pies...ice cream sundaes...cake... italian ice! Is it crazy for me to think I can do this on top of making my own bouquet and decorations?

Some pros:

1. no messy transport!
these would be easy to transport in a box without worrying about a mess of epic sized proportions to follow. i'm sure the moisture and humidity inside a closed jar would make the cake even more rich and tasty. don't quote me on that.

2. portion control: you could definitely make individual sized portions for people to enjoy, or even use larger jars to share family-style!

3. the container: who doesn't love mason jars to keep afterwards!



Con:

I'd have to buy hundreds of jars.... maybe I could just have them for my bridal shower. Heh-heh.

make your own:

dinner rolls in a jar!

Oh gosh! I clicked on through to the 15 recipes in a jar link and saw the peanut butter cups in a jar. To-die-for! I think everything's cuter in a jar. :-)
