So tonight I found a new use for the salad spinner bowl.

Here's my story. I want to showcase my new cake pedestal at a party I'm hosting tomorrow night (for a different DS company). I made a very simple 9" round cake. After baking, frosting, and decorating with the new Lemon Sprinkles I had a wonderfully simple cake. I didn't want to ruin it by putting plastic wrap over it, but I don't want it to dry out.

My salad spinner was sitting on my counter needing to be washed. Viola!! The bowl looked like a perfect candidate, some water and Dawn and 30 seconds later I had a beautiful cover on my cake!!

I tell this to all of my guests, even before the cake pedestal! I love to have more than one use for EVERYTHING, especially high ticket items!

Shelby! You're a genius! add a little duct-tape and you have a Cake Carrier for our pedestal! (haha- kidding...sort of). Do love that idea though!

I heard on an audio file on CC about someone using the quick stir for their delicates. Shared that at a show and a guest said she has used the salad spinner for removing extra water from her delicates.

The salad spinner has been used to wring out bathing suits camping.

There are other posts about the many uses of PC products, some of my favorites are:

Stackable cooling rack under laptops for circulation.

TTA for office/craft use.

Citrus peeler to de-vein shrimp.

Citrus peeler to de-vein shrimp.

Oh, that's awesome! I hate de-veining shrimp and lost the little curved knife that I had that helped me do it. I'm so using this idea! Thanks so much for sharing!

Shelby thanks for the excellent idea!! I was a little ticked that they didn't introduce a lid, but the the Salad Spinner bowl will work GREAT!! I don't see people buying one just for that (especially at the price), but people who already have one will now have a great second use!! Maybe our April hosts will buy the spinner since they can get the cake pedestal for less than $16!!!

Thanks for sharing!

Awesome idea!! I kept wandering why PC did not include some sort of lid for transport and to keep the cakes from drying out. Now I can use it at shows, thanks!!!

I showed the cake pedestal 3 times to friends stopping by to pick up their orders this week ( I just got mine Saturday) and all love the cake pedestal but want one with a cover. I am kicking off a fundraiser Sunday morning and I bet I'll get the same response.
