This is really stupid but I don't know the answer... - Page 2

post #16 of 27
That is awesome, Diane. I wish i had that much room........wow! My ultimate dream is to have a separate locked room in the house to keep all my 'toys' in. A room where i can just stop what i'm doing when it's time to pick up a kid from school or cook dinner, etc and not have to clean and clear everything so no one touches!

You and me both.

We order in and eat out so much I don't know why I bother grocery shopping!

My dream is to have a separate cake 'house' built on my property. Somewhere I can work on cakes and have hubby in there to keep me company. So, basically, a kitchen with a couch and a TV. icon_smile.gif

First, I gotta get me some property. LOL

Ha! At least you have that. I have two kitchen cabinets allocated to cake supplies and whatever doesn't fit there gets store in a closet down the hall that is also home to photos, computer paper, kid gear, etc. Although it looks like you do cakes on a larger scale than I do! I'd like to expand (I just do stuff for family and friends right now) but we'd have to move so I can have a second kitchen.

Me too! Love pizza boxes! For cookies, I set the lids part way open to allow a bit of air to help the icing dry. Also use the boxes to hold/store chocolate transfer pieces, fondant pieces etc. I also use them to carry small brownies, bars, tartlets (mini cupcakes are too tall) when I'm taking them somewhere. Very practical.

I get nice sturdy corrugated pizza boxes - plain white too - in different sizes at an eBay store. http://stores.ebay.com/THE-BOX-STORES-ON-LINE?_rdc=1

I have one cabinet for my decorating supplies and anything that doesn't fit goes into the basement where i have some shelving. It's a real pain to go up and down whenever i am starting a project or need stuff.

My husband built me a cookie drying rack. It holds several large sheets and as IndyDebi attested to, they are fine left out overnight to dry. Before I had my drying rack, I stacked my sheets with a 4 oz. jelly jar in each of the four corners. I went about 6 high as I recall.

Me too! We had to eat out this week because my island was covered in cookies with drying icing and my stovetop was covered with my icing containers and piping bags. We just saw a house for sale that had a guest house on the property. I thought that would be perfect. My baking kitchen could be in the guest house! But they wanted $600,000. Too expensive.

Oh, i can picture that confections! LOL.
That's why it's hard when i have to clean it all up and put stuff away even when i'm not finished, just so i can cook dinner, help with homework, and keep curious hands out of my cookies. After they're asleep, it all comes back out but needs to be cleaned off for breakfast the next day. bummer.

That's such a good idea, that would work for drying fondant pieces also! I'm gonna get some tommorow!
Thanx~!

Love the pizza box idea.

My poor husband...he is always complaining about living with 'works in progress'...is is bad to have banquet tables lined up in the living/dining room covered with cakes/cookies LOL

With the holiday baking marathon at my house, space is at a premium! The pizza boxes will work great. Thank you for that tidbit. I am fortunate to be able to stack stuff on the freezer and the "man frig" in an enclosed porch. This time of year in the mountains it stays nice and cool without having to be IN the frig. thumbs_up.gif
