Spice Cake with Pear and Cardamom Cream Cheese Frosting In a Jar

Mason Jars… I think I have seen more of those in use over the last year than ever before. image

The latest fad being “food in a jar”. Pinterest (aka suck all your time away) has several hundred/thousands of recipes on there. Well I looked in my pantry and had some leftover box spice cake, some canned pears, and cream cheese in the fridge. Bake the cake on a sheet pan so it is nice and thin. You can use the jar to help cut out circles of the cake that will fit. I also realized even if you messily just crumbled up the cake and stuffed it into the jar it is the same effect. Whip up your favorite cream cheese frosting and mix in some ground cardamom for that flavor that makes you go “hmmm”. Layer everything together and then devour. I made these for a dessert for some friends, and it was a great fall dessert that was not too heavy. Besides how could something be bad when it has cream cheese frosting?!??
