Cake Supply Storage

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I did a quick search and found a lot of ideas for storing cake-making supplies. This is really tough for me as I have no basement or attic and DH does woodworking in garage--no way I'm going to subject my stuff to all that sawdust. I'm wondering if anyone has tried those mix 'n match carryall gizmos that Michael's and Joann's sell for sewing and other crafts. They're bright pink and turquoise and you buy a big container with handles and then figure out which assorted smaller containers will fit in there. I have one for my sewing and wondered if anyone has tried them for cake supplies.

I have one of those carrying cases, but I wish I would have gotten a regular tackle box instead. The tackle boxes seem to have so many more individual spaces to put all the different items.

I store all my stuff in a big plastic rubbermaid storage container. for the most part it all fits in there - but I do not have that much yet.

I use plastic shoe boxes on a shelving unit off my breakfast room. I also have one of those tool box drawer type thingies for scews and such, to put my tips in. and several of those plastic fishing boxes for putting my dust in it and such. Even with all that, I still can't find anything! haha

I have a wilton tackle box. Used it once. The tips don't stay in the tip holder, and I don't use Wilton colors, so the little holes for colors don't do me muc hgood. Another item to put in ebay! hahaha

Check out Home Depot/Lowes type places. They have the storage cases that have many small drawers. I found one that connects to another, so it will grow with my "collection"!
Good Luck

I also have the Wilton tackle box and it way too small for me now. I use it for the little things, like tips, flower nails, gel colors, etc and large ziploc bags for the remaining things with small parts. I have actually devoted two kitchen cabinets - one for the decorating supplies and another for the pans. Luckily I have the cabinet space. If I didn't, I am not sure what I would do icon_cry.gif

Someone was reading my mind!!!! I am wondering what other people do because I have turned my master bedroom into a "warehouse". I bought those heavy metal shelf units that hold up to 500 lbs per shelf (i have 4 of them) and I also have those plastic drwer unit cart things for all of my little stuff! Works out great but when i need something, I have to run all the way upstairs for it. I have one shelf unit just full of pans. The others are cake boards, boxes, domes,and other bulky things.
And of course, I keep adding to my collection.
Another unit is for items to be sold on ebay. It is a very slow process for me!!!

I have the "tackle box" from Wilton for my tips, colors,bags. etc.
But for all the other extras,turntables, dowels, cardboard rounds,etc., I have 2 of the stackable trunks that you use to decorate your home. You know, the ones that are painted with flowers and look antiques. Everything fits in them,(except the pans), and no one knows my decorating stuff is in the living room!

Great idea Subaru! I've put a lot of work into decorating my home and don't want to give in to the temptation of Rubbermaid bins and plastic wheeled carts in the dining and living rooms. Now I'm thinking painted trunks and large, lidded baskets. Look out Pier I, here I come!

I am still new to this world and my dining room table was overflowing. I purchased a plastic file cabinet type unit from Office supply store and am storing my bags, colors, etc. I keep in my dining room but can roll to the kitchen and have the supplies handy. I also purchased a large container for my pans and larger items. So far this has worked but I am sure I will outgrow this.

I have the rubbermaid five drawer wheeled cart thingy and it works great.....actually have 2 of them now as my supply has grown....I have one drawer with all cookie cutters, one with all gumpaste items, one with all craft (non-edible things) bows, pearls, etc. I keep all my tips and such in my wilton tackle box thingy but the drawers are great, they're see through and keep everything organized!
