black forest cake (in a jar)

it seems these days everything is getting jammed into a jar
so why not a whole cake ? 
An idea I came up with for my book
{to clarify a little oops in my book my friend Kari made the apron see post the cake in the jar} 

so easy to do
layering as you fill
one easy peasy
way to take a cake anywhere
the only thing required is a very long serving spoon 


wee little note......
a party without a cake
is just a meeting

Looks delicious....and yes I thought but how do I get it out? Love the idea and loving you too!

Oh my, that is gorgeous! There is something about the overthetopness (I made that word up just for your cake) that makes me happy like a little kid! Oooh, and I have a really long handled wooden spoon that will be perfect..I'll be right over..hehe.. xo

Libbie said...

My favorite thing about your jar cake is...that you used such a big jar!!! I'll take one of those please!!!

Unknown said...

Yummy! You've got me craving chocolate cake now! :-)

Teresa Kasner said...

What a fun idea.. like a country style trifle! Easy to take too.. you're so clever! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Taci simmons said...

That sounds sooo yummy !

harmony and rosie said...

Oh my word, what a fantastic creation. I'm not sure I've ever seen such a huge jar, it's a show stopper of an idea and I love how you have the apron to match. One thing though, please don't say you ate it all by yourself :)

Love that 'little note' about the meeting vs the party in particular Koralee. As for your cake - I fear I would in fact eat the entire jar. It looks so pretty and I bet it tastes delicious! x

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

teehheee...YOU ARE RIGHT. "...just a meeting." Absolutely!

Good morning Koralee! What a fantastic idea this is to put all the ingredients in a jar. A long spoon is all you need and a happy heart. Oh how you make me happy!

Be well today; do you know that after an entire weekend of gardening, now MY BACK is sore! Fingers crossed that its just sore and not out-a-whack again!

Big but gentle hugs to you....Anita

Susie said...

Dagmar said...

Love that idea, says summertime in the Okanagan! Both the apron and the cake match, what a great combo, dear Koralee! ❤

Sue said...

I've seen cupcakes, but a CAKE is pure GENIUS!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning Koralee! YOU ARE BUSY THIS MONTH! I have a nice list of people who are wanting to participate, but I should have thought about May being indeed a busy month for teachers and moms!

I hope you are well today; my back is much better, but I wonder if a pinched nerve has done something to my facial muscles; I have been feeling a slight tingling on my face and head!!!!!!

OK, I think I better make a doctor's appointment but I feel fine, but just wondering why my face has this slight tingling feeling on the surface. Oh well.

Thank you so much for making over to say high. This cherry cake in a jar is such a fun and unexpected way to serve up some FRIENDSHIP for a party!

Much love to you dear one. Anita

Veronica Roth said...

Dear Koralee,

I already spotted it on facebook. It looks so delicious. I can imagine you and your family sitting around the table with a spoon each enjoying that delicious looking desert :-)

Have a lovely day dear friend! I spotted some new masking tape at the Hema today. It made me think of you :-)
