After you prepare your filling place it into a zippered bag to then fill your jars with ease.

Place the cheesecake into a ziploc bag to pipe into your jar

Finally decorate the jar with the fruit topping of your choice.  I chose Cherry but you could use Blueberry, Peach, Blackberry.  The sky is really the limit!  Then add raffia or ribbon of your choice.  You are ready to serve these delicious desserts!
