How can you not be totally obsessed with these delicious to-go treats? I want to make these for the next shower I host- they are so precious! The sweet presentation of a cupcake in a jar is too cute to pass up!

So because of my obsession with cupcakes in jars, I seriously drooled when I saw these ‘Jarfaits’ in the newest issue of Nesting Newbies! Check out page 34-37 for some great recipes for these layered treats! They would definitely make a great treat for a summer wedding! You can use pudding, jello, whipped cream, fresh fruit, you name it! Sounds delish, no?
