These Garden Containers Take the Cake

May 17, 2010 by

My insatiable sweet tooth draws me to these outdoor planters, pots, whatever they may be. Dutch designer Beerd van Stokkum gives new life to the classic cupcake liners (what do you call them?) with his line of Sweet Cake containers.

“This world-famous icon now enlarged to extraordinary proportions has become a unique design with numerous purposes,” according to Beerd.

It can be used as a baby’s bath, flower box or garden pot, child’s sandbox, or even a dog or cat bed. The Sweet Cake is made of thick synthetic material which makes it appropriate for indoor or outdoor use.

The lightweight Sweet Cake measures about 10.5 inches high and 28 inches wide at the top. Available in 10 different colors, it’s stackable just like classic cupcake wrappers.
