What would you use this for?

While exploring a small town not far away Little One and I stumbled across an antique/junk/bric-a-brac shop. And on top of a pile of boxes and cases in the far corner I found this tin. I was very pleased, it’s just what I wanted and a really good size - many tins that have come my way are just that little bit too small. This one is 25 cm (10 inches) across and 12 cm (5 inches) deep. Plenty of room for a largish cake plus any icing or decorations too! I took it to the till along with a couple of other purchases and the lady (who seemed to be standing in for the owner that day) remarked ‘What a pretty tin! What will you use it for?’ I replied ‘Cake’. She and another customer nearby both seemed surprised at this! What would you put in a cake tin?

@Fleura Mom used the jars for jams/jellies and such, Dad was forever getting a couple of fruitcakes each Christmas from different shipping companies, he was the head of traffic control (as shipping was called long ago) for a local bicycle manufacturer (AMF).

That looks like a tin that some cookies at Christmas might come in. I've never seen a cake come in a tin like that. When I still bothered to make fudge and candy as Christmas gifts for friends, I bought tins like that to put those in for presents. But I haven't done that in ten or fifteen years.
