If you purchase a cake or pastry from a grocery store bakery, they come in quite a nice, sturdy, see through plastic container. If you peel slowly, the labels come off easily. They come in handy to reuse in many ways.
Recently, I had company who brought a bundt type cake. This one had a large dome on a very sturdy base. Being a bundt cake, the base had a deep well in the center. I cut circles all around the center that my 2 oz. jars of acrylic paint fit into. I use the base now, upside down as a paint palette. I keep a jar of water in the center to rinse my brushes and because it is made of plastic, spills wipe off easily!

How clever, and to think I just threw one away, oh well the garbage man might use it.
This is one I submitted so yes, they are very cool!
I use my lid to gather compost items from my kitchen. When it starts getting full, I take it out to my compost barrow. Really good for the garden.
