I don’t always bake but when I do…I use 47 baking gadgets! My baking stash started small but then I kept adding different tools as needed. I only have one large drawer in my kitchen and I decided to dedicate it to baking. I don’t use the baking items often so the drawer stays pretty organized. The tools that get used most often are all the measuring cups. Years ago I organized the drawer using a utensil organizer and it did a pretty good job housing everything. Here is what the drawer looked like a couple of days ago:
The other day I was looking for a dresser at IKEA and I spotted this drawer organizer. I thought it would be perfect to house all the baking items. It was.
The first thing I did was clean the drawer since it hadn’t been thoroughly cleaned in years. I used my favorite method cleaner (that I buy at Target) to get it spotless.
Then I placed all the items in their new home!
I use measuring cups all the time because I don’t like to have to wash them mid-recipe to be able to use them for the next ingredient. With most recipes having wet and dry ingredients, multiple measuring cups are a good idea. Besides all the practical reasons…I like how they look nestled in there.
Food Coloring. I prefer these gels and I purchased them through Amazon.
Since the organizer doesn’t go right up to the side of the drawer its the perfect spot for longer items like the icing knives.
In the very back I placed the pop sticks and the fondant smoother. My favorite set of decorating tips are the ones pictured below from Ateco. I also purchased those on Amazon years ago.
This is how I store my cupcake liners. I have seen many cute ways to display them on Pinterest but this works for me.
More measuring cup pics!
So here it is again. Not a huge difference but I like this organizer much better. There is no way to make this drawer look uncluttered because there are so many things (all shapes, all sizes) but it can still look pleasing to the eye.
What do you think? Now lets get to baking!
