Cake In a Jar Is Brisbane’s Newest (and Godliest) Dessert Experiment

October 16, 2015

Mason jars aren’t just for jam and cocktails any more.

Remember when jars were something jam came in — and didn’t double as something to drink out of? Well, those days are long gone, as are the days of simply sipping cocktails out of them. Next, you’ll be eating cake out of one. No, we’re not joking. We would never kid about something as important as dessert.

Cake in a jar is exactly what it sounds like: moist, baked deliciousness crammed into a clear glass container for your feasting pleasure. And, from early March, it’s just what The Mason Baker will be selling in seven different flavours. Yep, it’s all there in their name.

The brainchild of Brisbane entrepreneur James Willis and celebrity chef Philip Johnson, the Mason Baker won’t just be serving up your new favourite sweet treat, though they’ll be doing plenty of that. As well as popping up at E’cco, they’ll be delivering it across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast as well. That’s the great thing about the concept, which James spotted in the US: it doesn’t just look great, thanks to its layers of frosting and toppings, but it’s easily portable. Plus, you can keep the jar and use it for something else afterwards.
