Thrifted Cake Box

A beauty at the thrift store--this vintage coppery cake box (three dollars and fifty cents!). When I first got it home I couldn't figure it out; turns out the box was upside down. You don't put cake in it, you put it over the cake!


The top comes off, and underneath there is space for transporting your serving utensils. I love this!


Sure enough, it holds a pound cake very well.


Fortuitously, it exactly matches the white and orange pumpkins we picked from the garden.

It would have to be a pretty flat pie! None of today's deep-dish nonsense . . .

I read this blog entry yesterday ... and today, at the thrift store, I found: a cake box.

Only mine is avocado green.
