DIY Cake Box Carrier

How to build a DIY Wooden Cake Box from Wood Scraps

Quick! You’ve been invited to a last minute shindig and you have no idea what to bring. What’s your go to “potluck” dish??

.

Mine is dessert. ALWAYS DESSERT. You can’t go wrong by mixing a boatload of sugar and flour and butter together to make SOMETHING, amiright??

.

But, I’m not a huge fan of those bulky-plastic-snap-the-lid-on cake carriers. And it’s not the most glamorous packaging to throw tin foil over your pie right before walking out the door to the party. So what’s a “dessert bringer” to do??

.

Obviously build a dessert carrier that everyone will be asking about as soon as you show up to the partay!!

You may have seen wooden cake, pie, and cupcake boxes already. But I have two problems with these (even though they are ridiculously adorable): 1. They are really expensive and 2. You can’t see inside the box.

.

So my solution?? Build one from scrap wood and add windows. So simple! AND BASICALLY FREE!!

You can totally make different size versions for your pies, cakes, cookies, brownies, etc. But I made this one fairly large to fit large cakes…because my sister makes the most elaborate (and enormous) cakes all the time and I thought she’d like to borrow it on occasion 🙂
