The Baker's Dozen

 

continued

Since we're talking sweet stuff again, let's close with a fun item that is destined for staying power (no, not Washtenaw Dairy Donuts, 'cause they're fried, not baked). It's a novelty you won't find just anywhere. It costs six bucks and comes encased in glass from one of the newest sugar shacks in town: the stylish Sweet Heather Anne cake shop on North Main, just across the tracks from the river and currently open for retail sales on Friday and Saturday. It's cake in a jar, of course! Supermoist circles of chocolate, orange, or other cakes get dropped into Ball-brand canning jars and iced in situ with seductive frosting creations (salted caramel, anyone?). A tiny wooden spoon comes tied on with a fabric bow. Have a bite, say mmmm, put the lid back on, take a brisk walk, and repeat--all winter long.    (end of article)
