Cupcakes in a jar
I was surfing the net the other night and came across this tasty treat. Cupcakes in a jar, who would have thought! They’ve been seen on The Today Show and in O Magazine. So what exactly is new food trend? Cupcakes in a jar, it turns out, are like the illicit love child of cake pops and those jarred cake mixes .
When reading the title of the article featured on www.thekitchn.com, I immediately assumed that it meant little baked cakes in jars. But cupcakes in a jar go way past that. After reading the article and doing a little research myself, some aren’t even baked in the jar; they’re made of a halved cupcake, or crumbled cake, layered in a jar with whipped buttercream frosting. After the lid is put on, the high sugar content of these treats means they can last for over a week, or be frozen. This tasty treat would make a great take home treat for guests!
