Thrift Store Find

I bought this pretty aluminum cake carrier at the thrift store yesterday. I just love it. It is made my MIRRO and I am not sure what decade it is from - maybe the 1970's. Anyone know?



Now, all I need is a cake to put in it.

Let's see - maybe a carrot cake with cream cheese topping, a German chocolate cake with homemade icing on it (my husband's favorite), Grandma's applesauce stack cake, pineapple upside down cake or a delicious yellow cake with chocolate icing.

Can you tell I am trying to lose weight? I like to talk about food when I am trying to lose weight.

What is your favorite cake?

  1. We're on the same page, Janet. Trying to lose weight and food always looks and sounds more appealing than ever. I have the best recipe for a fresh apple cake. I'll scan the photo I saved of it and add the recipe this fall. I plan to be at least 10 pounds down by then. Pretty ambitious, but doable. Love your cake pan!

  2. Oh I love this Janet! I have a plain aluminum one that has a black handle on the lid. I think they go back further than the 70's.
    Mine was made by Regal Aluminum.

  7. Love the cake carrier. It's getting close enough to fall for me to start craving a fresh apple cake. Don't know why, but the fall and apple cake just go together!

  8. I've never seen a cake pan like that before! It's neat looking! You have got to make a German Chocolate cake with your frosting! I made your frosting and it is to die for! Makes me want to make one!

    Have a Great Weekend!

    Don't look at me like that ladies. Yes, I'm a man but I'm also a foodie, an excellent cook, with 19 years online experience and currently employed as a work from home Internet researcher. Always glad to help when I can.

  12. Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments. That is it, Rocketman, except I have the bottom, too. I showed it to someone yesterday and they told me they thought it was maybe from the 70s. But I tend to agree with everyone's comments that it was from the 50s. Internet researcher - that sounds like an interesting occupation.

  13. I haven't seen one of those in years!
    I love German chocolate cake. My Mother used to make those. No one else in my family likes them, so I don't make them.
