Patrons of BOA Steakhouse on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, CA, can now order a very convenient dessert they won’t have to wait around for someone to box up. The restaurant’s head pastry chef Joseph Kim created a dish he proudly calls ‘Cake In A Can’, which is exactly what it sounds like.
Cake In A Can features a carrot cake baked and assembled in a pristine tin can. Each component is stacked carefully and constructed as it’s made to order.
Chef Kim says he wanted to create a whimsical dessert for his menu.
BOA’s ‘Cake In A Can’ is covered with a cream cheese icing and decorated with chopped walnuts and micro greens to create a clever illustration of unpicked carrots in the ground.
Fellow Foodbeast Reach, who took the cake in a can home, had this to say about the novelty:
I thought it was super convenient and really added to the novelty factor.
The dessert is a permanent staple of BOA, though the type of cake offered will be swapped out seasonally.
