I’m not the biggest cupcake fan, but I really liked this idea.
This morning on the news (NPR to be precise) they mentioned a guy at an airport with a cupcake in a jar. I thought the idea was to put the cupcake into a tall jar and then fill the rest of the jar with icing. That way you’d get like 3 times more icing than even a mile-high frosted cupcake. (I personally would prefer whipped cream instead of icing though.) But then I Googled it, and I found something way more fun:
A new trend called Cupcake in a Jar!
In case you can’t tell, you’re basically making a two-layer cake out of cupcakes and using a jar so it stays all together. And the possibilities sound fun to me! Can you imagine it with cream cheese, or raspberry jam, or a cupcake-sized lush cake?
What are some of your ideas? What other things can we stack in a jar for a tasty, individual-sized treat?
