Where and how do you store your food paste containers? My wilton colors for example I have been storing in a small 3 drawer unit but the problem is that the color that sometimes gets on the outside of the container contaminates the other jars so when I want to open a jar to color fondant sometimes a second (or third!) color makes its way into my fondant. Unbidden and unwanted might I add! So what do you do?
I have a set of plastic drawers to store my all my colours and cutters in and always keep the bottles standing up.
I used to buy the liquid colours but they were really messy and ran down the sides of the containers, so now I only buy the pastes. They don't even spill if you knock them over because they are so thick. I also use a cocktail stick to add the colour to my fondant so none of it gets round the opening. If it does, I always close the lid tight and wash it before putting it away.
I store mine in a compartment keeper....like for cross stitch floss or tackle box. Each Wilton jar stands up perfectly in each opening and I store it standing straight up so there are limited leaks. I sometimes have to put a small piece of paper towel in a compartment to catch leaks.
But it works great! I love it!
I store my paste colors in an empty egg carton, keeps them upright and away from each other. I also keep my big tips in an egg carton.
