The influx of clever jarred confections goes to show that culinary creativity is on the rise.

The mason jar is a versatile apartment furnishing piece often used for lighting purposes, adorable decoration ideas or DIY cooking projects. The concept of eating dessert out of a jar is so unique that it hardly matters whether you are eating a simple chocolate cake or a fancy citrus concoction. The presentation used in these examples increases the impressiveness of a dessert dramatically. In fact, this chic storage idea has served as inspiration for many bakeries, cafes and restaurants to use these cheap jars as a form of packaging.

This storage idea is so accessible and easy to make that the delightful result seems too good to be true.
