Hello Austin,

One great way to remove the necks of the jars is to heat strongly around the edge of the glass and then pour water over it - it will fall right off. Here is how this is done:

1. Acquire a length of nichrome wire (sold in ceramic shops as high temp wire) this is the same wire that heats up toasters, hairdryers, soldering irons, etc. Get a length that will wrap around the circumference of the jar about 2 times (the extra length is for connecting to your power source).

2. Get a power supply to apply power to the wire (a battery charger for a car/motorcycle battery may suffice). Ideally, the voltage should be adjustable, but this is not always practical. If you use a wire guage of arond 22, I find about 12 volts at about 4 amps works well. I usually set a voltage which turns the wire a dull orange when the wire is held in air. You can always start with a longer wire and shorten as necessary to get the dull orange heat. Too much heat and it melts.

3. Have a large cup available filled with water.

4. Wrap the wire around neck of jar one full turn (don't let wires touch where they overlap) turn on the power supply and wait (I forgot how long....somewhere 10-30 seconds I think) then turn off the power supply and IMMEDIATELY pour the cool water over the glass. If you did it right, the top will pop off...if not, nothing or maybe just the start of a crack.

I know it is not easy, but it works quite well and perhaps you can put it to other good use. Here is an idea: I used to cut the bottoms off of 1 gallon wine bottles for plant trays.

Enjoy,

Triptamine

Hrmm. You are probably going to half to sacrafice the jars. Wrap them in a towel and lightly crack the glass. See if you can get it to split in only a few places. Be very careful, dont cut yerself.

i recently tried cracking open a few quart jars, it failed miserably, with the glass shattering and getting stuck in the cake. i used a hammer and a towel the first time, then a tiny crobar the second time. i would avoid breaking the jar, why dont u just crumble the cake inside and case it?

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

I don't know about breaking the jar, but I know it's 100% OK to break up and case a BRF cake.

Another sudjestion if you dont want to case them would be to go to any local hardware store (hell even wallmart prolly has them) and buy a glass cutter. Theyre cheap as hell, like 3 bucks. This will score the glass, then you can tap the jar on somthing and the idea is the glass will break where you scroed it. Ive never had to do this, because im smart enough to buy wide mouthed mason jars... but it should work.
