What can be more hip than a cake in a jar? Especially Salted Caramel Chocolate cake. Sounds very intriguing and has potential. Bluebird Cakery makes custom cakes and sweets all over Vancouver, but recently, their Cake in a Jar became available at UrbanFare, Creme de la Crumb, Chioffis, Nourish Market, Meinhardt, and Fresh St. Market. I’ve seen so many photos on instagram, so I wanted to give it a try.
I went to the closest UrbanFare near my work and picked up 2 jars. It wasn’t cheap at all and it is $6.99, but it was on sale for $5.99.
There are 3 layers of cake, butter cream and salted caramel. When I glanced at the nutrition facts, the whole jar packs a punch to your gut with about 900 calories and tons of sugar and fat. Don’t eat this all in one sitting.
I was only able to eat 1/3 at each sitting as it is quite rich. It is a sweet dessert, but I wish there would be more cake as I really didn’t like all the cream.
Overall, it was ok, but I wasn’t amazed by the taste. The best part is that you can reuse the jar for later.
