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 🙂
I’ve got the tutorial for you over on The Weathered Fox today, so be sure to click on over and check it out.
And for more scrap wood projects, don’t miss out on these:
And don’t forget to pin this for later 🙂
Until next time, happy building 🙂
So creative, Shara! Love it!

Thank you Mary!! I can’t wait to take it to my next get together!
