A woman asked me the other day what the purpose of a 'brandy well' is in some cake plates. I've never heard of this before.. any ideas?

My guess is....it refers to the dip in the center of many glass platters. I thought they were a result created from how the glass maker needs to attach the foot on the bottom of the tray.????
Some cakes like kentucky butter cake have a liquid poured over them (meant to be absorbed into the cake) and this "well" is handy to catch the excess run off of liquid.
My best guess....

Hi.. thanks.. that's sort of what i was thinking too, like for a bundt cake, I guess.. but then she told me that the plate was square....
Go figure. *shrug
