simple: 3- ingredient mini lemon ginger icebox cakes for two


Happy 4th Anniversary Mason Jar Meals!  Four years ago I posted THIS photo on my Facebook page, on July 26, 2011 to be exact and look how Mason Jar Meals are everywhere now.   Neato!  I really like my mason jars and use them all the time, especially for jarring up leftovers- they look fresher that way.

Teeny tiny lemon ginger icebox cakes for two are my way of celebrating Mason Jar Meals’ special day.  No oven required and a few deliciously simple ingredients, this dessert comes together in a breeze and is so refreshing too.  You’ll find these to be rich, decadent,  creamy, and perfectly petite.   Now get in the kitchen and whip these mini gals right up. Use your imagination and play around with a variety of flavor combinations too.
