For a second birthday celebration, we wanted to think of a creative idea that would easily feed numerous people, cater to both toddlers and adults, and most importantly, look and taste divine!
A cake… been there! Cupcakes…done that! Cake in a jar? Yes please!!
Mason jars were the obvious choice for the cakes as the glass sides perfectly showcased each delicious layer; sprinkles, butter cream icing, fluffy white cake and more.
Cake in a jar how-to:
- Prepare your favourite cake batter as usual. Separate the batter into two 9x11 cake pans (you want your cake to be thinner than usual).
- Bake for half the allotted time. Once cooked, let cakes cool. Once room temperature, wrap the cakes with saran wrap and place in the freezer overnight. You can always make the cake in advance – it will last up to six months in the freezer.
- When ready to assemble the cake jars, prepare butter cream icing.
- Remove one cake at a time from the freezer and use a circle cookie cutter to cut the pieces of cake out. It is easier to work with frozen cake, until it is set inside the jar. If the cake has any golden flakes, make sure to cut them off with a knife.
- To assemble the jars, begin by covering the bottom of the mason jar with sprinkles.
- Pipe butter cream icing over the sprinkles.
- Add the circle of cake.
- Pipe a swirl of icing on top.
- Top with a few sprinkles.
- Repeat, until you have completed all of the jars. It works well to make 4-5 jars at the same time, in an assembly line.
Dannijo has been on our radar for years and we couldn't be more excited to finally take the plunge and introduce these amazing jewels to Saskatoon. With just a small sampling arriving so far each piece has already seemed to leave us absolutely breathless. Words cannot describe the beauty and feel that you get when you put your first piece of Dannijo on. A feeling worth experiencing.
JODIE + DANIELLE
The Snyder sisters grew up in sunny Florida, where they used their cardiologist father's medical tools to teach themselves how to make jewelry while in middle school. Once the two reunited in New York after their college years, they went back to their childhood hobby and created a capsule jewelry collection for Danielle's non-profit L.W.A.L.A. (Live With A Lifelong Ambition), which fundraised for grass-roots initiatives in Africa. Seemingly overnight, the two built their jewelry passion into a mega-successful brand. Since its inception, DANNIJO has advocated creating sustainable economic opportunity for women in underdeveloped areas of the world. All DANNIJO.com packaging is handmade in Rwanda as part of their women's empowerment initiative.
DANNIJO jewelry is sold at select, high-end stores worldwide including Bergdorf Goodman, Shopbop, Holt Renfrew, Lane Crawford and Harvey Nichols. Danielle and Jodie are members of the AOL Small Business Board of Directors alongside Richard Branson. The two were featured on Inc Magazine's 30 Under 30: America's Coolest Entrepreneurs List and were recently profiled by The New York Times. They've been featured on the TODAY Show as well as Fox Business. The sisters are passionate about creating a multidimensional brand that evolves to the needs of their customers; the sisters were among the first to launch fashion casing for iPhones and iPads and have been at the forefront of the social media/blogger movement. Additionally, the line has an extensive celebrity following including Natalie Portman, Beyonce, Blake Lively, Oprah and Rihanna.
