These cuties would look great on a dessert buffet, and even better as take-home wedding favors! Plus they are easy create and assemble by you and your maid and moms DIY style, making it triply cost effective idea! The best part? They stack well and are easy to transport to your venue with no worries about smashing! Add that personal touch with wedding monogram sticker or a sweet message tag to your guests and you've got the perfect package.

Here are our top 4 choices for Edible Wedding Favors - DIY Dessert in a Jars.

Cupcakes!
Hello Red Velvet cupcake deliciousness....add some cream cheese frosting and you have pure heaven! But then again, I could be biased.  Wedding cupcakes are all the rage these days but we think they are just way more fun in a jar. We found the awesome recipe and DIY Cupcake in a Jar tutorial over at the super delicious blog Cakies. She makes it look SO easy. I simply love the Baker's Twine holding the spoon. This sweet treat has rustic, outdoor, summertime wedding written all over it

Cake! 
Baked right into the jar, what could be easier? Transform your favorite cake into a deliciously-mini version of itself. We got a new take on old favorites poppyseed, pumpkin spice, and chocolate cake.

Recipe and DIY tutorial can be found at Delicious Days.

Yummy chocolate cake couldn't be easier! Personalize your treat with a colored ribbon and a note tag to guests. There are so many easy ways to add a pop of color to match your wedding theme.

Pie!
What says whimsy, Americana more than pie? Apple pie deliciousness is should be a staple at any barn wedding or outdoor picnic reception. Does your Great Aunt have a killer pie recipe? Bake it into jars with love and then share the recipe with guests as part of your edible wedding favor.  Friends and family will love the personal touch.

More pie and cobbler ideas and tips from Not Martha, who points out that you can make these in advance, freeze them, and then bake them on a later date so they’re fresh-out-of-the-oven.

Cheesecake!
Can you imagine a delicious cheesecake in a small little jar? I totally can! What a fun little treat that would be for guests to dig into at the end of your wedding! Love this fabulous recipe and DIY tutorial from My Baking Addiction.

This no bake strawberry cheesecake idea from Lloyd and Lauren might be an easier and less time consuming if you need to make a huge bunch to serve for wedding favors.

Pudding!
Ahhh pudding....the feel good yumminess that takes you back to childhood. Well, pudding has gone gourmet for weddings...add a fancy jar and you've got something pretty special. Any flavor would work but I think this banana dessert topped with meringue is delightful to the eye and the tongue. 
Found this super easy recipe and photo over at Rosemary and The Goat.

You know there are tons of fun options to choose when it comes to Edible Wedding Favors. We love the idea of DIY desserts because they can help reduce your cost, introduce a favorite childhood or ethnic dessert, and serve as a sweet to eat take away. Get creative! Combine the newlywed's favorite flavors for a totally unique, yummy creation! Include a long held family recipe so everyone can enjoy the good stuff.  Add personal touches likes color, tags, labels, use antique jelly and canning jars, use as part of your centerpiece design or the focal point of a dessert table. Practical planning at its very best. Enjoy!
