Food trends come and go like any other fashion. Cupcakes have been big for a while now, but it's no secret that they are on their way out in the world of vogue desserts.
For a few months now I've been noticing a new trend that I predict will be the next cupcake; desserts in a jar. You heard it hear first.
Everything from cakes to pies are being baked and served in little mason jars. There are many advantages to this new technique. I believe it was first introduced as a way to safely send treats over seas to soldiers. Now it is not only an adorable way to display pastries but it also provides perfect individual servings.
To check out some great recipes, I recommend searching Tasteologie!
