Orange Cake Jars – The story of Deshna Saraogi

We all have heard or thought about making our passion into a profession in college days. But, how many of us have the courage to follow through? Deshna is an example of a college student who took a bold step of following her passion of baking right from college and soon, turned it into a full time profession. Her brand, Cariocake is 4 years old and it is flourishing with new as well as return customers in the city of Bengaluru.

‘I got my first cupcake order in college(Christ University)’, says Deshna. Slowly, she started building up her brand with sampling of products, social media, experimentation and the word spread about her delicious baked goodies, through friends or family. And, thus, began, her journey as a professional baker. Her parents and brother are the guinea pigs when it comes to testing new flavors or recipes for the bakes.

Deshna was one of the first bakers we approached for shooting a Youtube recipe and she graciously agreed to do so. She showed us how to make Cake Jars at home with Orange. Let us learn how to make it step by step.


Basic vanilla sponge cake

Heavy whipping cream – 1/4 cup

Orange crush

Fresh orange slices (peeled)

Method –

1. Crumble the cake into a fine mixture and keep aside.

2. In a bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream (I have used Tropolite) until smooth.

3. Add orange crush according to taste.

4. Pour the cream into a piping bag.

5. Take a dessert jar or shot glass and put a layer of the crumbled cake.

6. Pipe a layer of the cream and spread fresh orange slices on the cream.

7. Repeat the layers depending on the size of the jar.

8. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

This is an easy recipe that you can readily make at home, especially for kids.
