For a while now, I have been on the hunt for a non-plastic, and preferably made of natural material pastry container. It isn’t so much to carry pies and pastries around town, but rather to have a nice-looking storage box on the kitchen countertop for the baked goods, away from pesky flies, dirt and perhaps grabby fingers.
I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when I stumble upon Piebox. It’s no ordinary pie box, but a reusable wooden box handcrafted of unfinished pine in a simple modern design. Its sturdy square wooden frame also makes for easy stacking, which is a plus for those of us who do not just bake one pie at a time, and do not have much kitchen counter space. And most of all, this pastry box, which is also available in a larger Cakebox size, is designed for easy transporting of your cakes, cupcakes, pies and tarts. You simply attach a leather strap handle over the box, and you’re ready to carry it with style! What a neat idea!
