Lord I Wish I Could Bake...I Mean, More Than A Potato. Cake Would Be Great Right About Now! Status: This Pair Needs A Spare
Trying to find these without dented lids is pretty tough. I've found a few others but none that have tickled my fancy the way these two have. I guess these were used pretty regularly by those who purchased them. Probably used to take cakes to church and whatnot.
My idea of cooking is grilling out or boiling some eggs for the Girlfriend. Maybe I'll try my hand
a baking a cake for one of our parties and get some use out of one of these beauties. Many of
the vintage items I collect only get used in my vivid imagination of what I might someday use
Mmmmm, Cake. What kind are you imagining inside one of these? I'm thinking yellow cake with
chocolate fudge icing. Maybe a German Chocolate cake. So many options. Good thing I've got
two. I could even see a stack of brownies under one of those lids! Heck, even a plate of
cookies would be better than nothin'.
Estate sales are about the best place to find these at a reasonable price. You gotta look for
them though. They are usually in the basement on a shelf or in a box. I'm pretty sure I found
both of these at estate sales. If you find one at a thrift store it's usually dented up. They have
to go through the whole donation process and usually don't make it unscathed. I'm often
surprised at what Does make it to the shelves without damage though.
