{Dessert in a Jar}

Cooking Crafts Holidays

Happy Monday!

Did you have a great Easter?

I hope so! It was a beautiful day in Salt Lake City yesterday.


Sometimes we have snow on Easter.

Like last year, when we were camping.

Not fun.


I was assigned dessert this year for Easter.

I'm not a huge dessert eater, but I do LOVE to make dessert.

Weird, huh?

Typical of me.

You might remember I made THESE for St. Patrick's Day, last month.

Since I already had the jars, it seemed obvious.

Make more dessert in a jar.


So I did!

First up, Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar.

Angel food cake, topped with Strawberries & Sugar

Cool Whip mixed with Vanilla Frosting

And a dusting a graham cracker crumbs


And, because my Dad loves Carrot Cake

I did Carrot Cake in a Jar

I made Carrot Cake Cup Cakes

Sliced them, added a slice to the jar

Topped with Cool Whip mixed with Cream Cheese Frosting

A dusting of graham cracker crumbs

And repeat!

I added THESE CUTE printables to the lids

And called it GOOD!

We spent the afternoon at my parents' house

Easter egg hunt for the kids (minus Tyson who is in California at school still)

Dinner outside on the deck

And a last photo of Grandpa with Erin and Madison

I hope you all had a very blessed day!

And if you haven't tried making dessert in a jar

Go for it!

So fun!

You will love it!
