Redneck cake storage


I have this really pretty glass cake dome but it is not quite big enough for the angel food cake I baked yesterday.  

so to cover it up so it won't get stale
I used my biggest Farberware stock pot.
It is big enough to fit over that 10 inch cake that rose even taller than its pan
but it sure leaves a bit to be desired in the pretty department.  

We like fresh tasting cake so until I find something bigger,  I'll be using this stock pot as a cake dome.


The cake is made from an Aldis angel food cake mix and is really a great cake.  I add just a little almond and vanilla extracts to the batter.
The cake mix is  a summer seasonal item according to the Aldis flyer.
Are you wondering how much we like them?  When we went to Aldis last week and saw they still have them in stock,
we bought a flat of 16.  They sell for $1.99.

  2. Where there is a will, there is a way. You have certainly found it. That is the statement of my life it seems. I can imagine how great that cake must be.

    1. Yes, doing things pretty is nice, but sometimes it is just whatever works :)

    1. yes you should, Sharon. I am mostly a scratch cook but I have never made a scratch Angel food cake. What do you do with the yolks that are left?

  5. You get an A+ for coming up with a solution! I think it is fine. Your cake might not be there long enough to worry about another container! :) Good luck in finding a tall enough cake keeper. Seems all the ones I find just barely cover a regular cake. Go figure!

    1. My glass dome works fine for layer and bundt cakes but it won't even come close to going over that 10 inch angel cake.

  6. I have tried Aldi's angel food cake mix and I agree, it is good. My mom once made their brownie mix and used their frosting to take to a picnic as a last minute dessert and everyone thought that it was made from scratch.
