In the midst of the mason jar trend (also known as the DIY Vintage Modern Era), a new way to cook has taken form. (I'm totally on board with this—especially if it means I get delicious mini cheesecakes from friendly friends – see image right.)
It's layered foods—particularly of the rainbow variety.
Where do the jars come into play... ... they make the stripes visible! But really, this is a fun trend with any clear container.
It works on Jello, Granola, Salads, Cake, Slushies, even Weddings! Look!—Martha's doing it too!*
Get out your food coloring and get your stripe on!
