All Hail the Jam Jar – Part 2

16 Jun

Well, I seem to have had a lot of interest in my article on the lovely jam jar, and I just came across some new ideas on how they can be used in a creative way, so I had to share it with you.

www.notmartha.org has some great ideas of creating pies and puddings in jars, which would be a great way to serve up your dessert on your special day. And, you could personally decorate the jars, and people can take them home with them after the event.

The ideas are for:

Blueberry cobbler baked in jars

 

Pies baked in jars (you can do any kind of pie)

Firecracker chocolate pudding

[spicy chocolate pudding in jars]

The chocolate pudding idea is so quick and easy, and requires no baking. How about trying this with Nigella Lawson’s recipe for chocolate pudding (I have tried this and it is divine!)

After feeling inspired by these ideas, I did a quick internet search for some more inspiration, which produced some more fantastic ideas! See below:

These ideas (above), including the genius muffin baked in a jar, came from Sweet Dream Events, in an article they did on jam jars.

Wow, the photos above is of S’Mores Cakes in jars, which I found through Janna Beecham. The original ideas comes from How Sweet It Is. Yum!

Darling Notes is where I found the lovely two above. She found them from Babble, in an article about 15 dessert recipes for jam jars!

So, let’s get creative!
