What: Cake in a jar, Country Of Origin, Maneesha Building, ground floor, next door to Tahaa Spa, Napeansea Road, Rs 485.
Why: Because cup-cakes are so last year. At this new(ish) bakery, bpb found puddings and cakes layered into fun glass jars, which come in a bunch of flavours – the red velvet and caramel-oreo-cream are to die for – with spoon attached. Ask nicely, and they’ll even make you a customised tiramisu or chocolate mousse jar. Warning: these store a ton of calories.
When: You want to go jar and wide.
