Sooooooo. We finally had the chance to try those desserts from The Baker’s Jar that I posted about earlier this week. If you recall, I got the mini-sized Happy Birthday Cake, the mini-sized Mud Cup, the standard-sized Ruby’s Carrot Cake, and the standard-sized Lemon Pie jars.
Real quick – please excuse the quality of these pictures. They are all pictures taken on my iPhone so they aren’t the best quality.
First up was the Happy Birthday Cake.
Disclaimer: I added more Sprinkles! There just weren’t enough. I was disappointed with the Happy Birthday Cake Jar, if I’m being honest. The cake was a bit dry and…crunchy? And I definitely wasn’t a fan of that. There were a few bites that were chewy too, which was a bit strange. So I don’t think I’d buy that one again. And that’s disappointing because I LOVE BIRTHDAY CAKE.
Mr. Curly Fry said the Mud Cup was okay. He likes pudding so he was fine with it. Apparently there wasn’t all that much cake in there though. And there were waaaaaaay too many gummy worms. I think the two on the top would’ve been plenty. But there were more on the bottom. I think I can make our own pudding for a lot less than $3.50, so we won’t be going back for that one.
The clear winner was the Ruby’s Carrot Cake Jar. It was SO much better than all of the others.
I wish the cake was layered with the frosting, but I guess I can’t complain since this one was good. However, look at the first bite compared to a few bites later…
Where’s the frosting?
There wasn’t anymore frosting left! So that was kinda sad. But the cake wasn’t dry and crusty like the Happy Birthday Cake. So I would go back for this one. And I didn’t even have to share it since Mr. Curly Fry isn’t into Carrot Cake and doesn’t like nuts. It was a win/win!
I also tried the Lemon Pie with the Blueberry Compote.
The bites that had the Lemon Pie, Blueberry Compote, and the Graham Cracker crust were the best!
The Lemon Pie was actually really good. I wasn’t sure how I felt after the first bite – it was very tart and sweet, all at the same time. But as I kept eating, I liked it more and more. And I loved the graham cracker crust at the bottom – I could eat that all day.
So I would say that my trip to The Baker’s Jar turned out okay. I was a little discouraged after the Happy Birthday Cake jar and the Mud Cup, but the Carrot Cake and the Lemon Pie made the trip worth it.
