Layered Strawberry Shortcake in Mason Jars

My friends delight in making jokes about my love for putting food in 
mason jars ~ seriously, is it not just more fun? They're so cute, and I think it's
such a clever idea for picnics, potlucks and BBQs to open your cooler and pull
out little individual servings!  It couldn't be easier, and my favorite words when
 I'm entertaining - they can be made ahead of time!    

12 - 8 ounce mason jars
1.5 lb. carton of strawberries, cut in pieces
 1/2 cup sugar (or less)
Sprinkle sugar over strawberries and let sit 20 minutes, or until juices form.   

Pound Cake cut in cubes
 I use 6 large butter pound cakes from Costco (12 to a pkg.)

Heavy Whipping Cream - 1 pint
3 tablespoons sugar
Whip cream until stiff gradually adding sugar while whipping.

Layer ingredients in mason jars. 
Pound Cake, Strawberries & Cream and repeat.
Place lids on jars and refrigerate.
Can be made 3 - 24 hours prior to serving.    
Yield: 12 servings

Tell me I'm not alone in my enthusiasm for mason jars. :)

How fun! Those look delicious. My daughter loves anything miniature, so we'll definitely try these. I'm having visions of you at Thanksgiving shoving miniature turkeys into jars...

This looks incredibly and I'm totally going to make it! I find everything feels fancier when it's in an individual serving. ;-)
