Keeping all my favorite cake decorating supplies in order is no small feat. They range from tiny piping tips to a rather big turntable that I used to get an even coat of frosting on my layer cakes. For the more frequently used supplies (spatulas, fondant tools, piping tips & bags, sprinkles etc.) I adapted the Wilton Ultimate Tool Caddy to fit my needs and make it easy to take on the go.
Luckily it is well-designed to fit a lot of the typical baker’s equipment, like this handy food coloring compartment:
But… I took it one step beyond Wilton’s vision and added some of my own touches to make it more practical. I like to know where to find things, so labeling and organizing is
an addiction second nature for me. I’m also a little crafty and like to be unique so I did some personalizing while I was at it!
How I keep my Cake Decorating Supplies at Bay:
- Using a Silhouette SD that I borrowed from a friend (seriously the coolest crafting tool on the face of the earth!) I cut my logo out of sticker paper and applied it to bottom compartment.
- After putting everything in its place I used a label maker with black ink and clear labels (I don’t recommend the one I have to anyone… but it did the job). Now I don’t have to hunt for any of the supplies and I know where to put them back when I’m done making a mess in the kitchen (or better yet… hubby knows where to put them if he’s helping me with dishes)!
- The last thing I did was get my piping tips in order…umm…like… by number. (Ok, maybe this was taking it a step too far but I looove it!) Since the tip compartment is clear, I created a template that fits underneath, showing the spot where each numbered tip lives. If I have more than one of a type it just gets stacked on top!
I keep my fun BakeCakery stickers in one compartment so I don’t forget to include them with each cake. I soOoOO want to do a cake competition just so I can show off my sweet cake box!
How do you stay organized when it comes to kitchen gadgets?
