Any creative ideas? I'm big on organization and I don't want to have to buy another Wilton caddy. Thank you!
You mean the little screw-top pots? Mine are in a drawer organizer type basket/tray (sort of like these but mine are vinyl-coated wire), which is then stacked inside a larger tub of cake decorating stuff. You can use a spice rack or similar. Depends where you want to keep it -- in a drawer, mounted on the inside of a cabinet, whatever. I've been meaning to get a simple rack like this for my jars of decorating sugar and sprinkles.
Mine are stored in a clear plastic tote that is about the size of a shoe box.
I have the storage boxes from Ikea. They are plastic, with a flip up lid, and they have little plastic dividers that separate the box into like 8 "compartments". They are the perfect height for the screw top pastes. Now I'm organized by colors. At least something's organized!
Clear plastic box, a little shorter than a shoe box. That way if one craps all over, it just craps over the rest of them and not in a drawer or somewhere much more difficult to clean.
My bottles of color are in a rectangle tupperware container with a lid (about the size of a loaf of bread). I actually can do them two layers deep by using those little plastic baskets from the dollar store.
Mine are in those colorful plastic storage things fromwalmart pink and green, and 4.00 each-
I started with the shoe box, and now am at the bigger size. about 3 inches tall.
I keep my colors in a plastic shoe-size tote. I keep a piece of non-stick liner underneath them. The tote, in turn, is then put on the top of my cake supply drawers.
I use a tool box from the hardware store...I have two...one with two compartments and I found a great one with 4 plastic pull out draws and a large open area on top....all closes up tight and neat... I use the larger one for all my fondant tools and cutters and the other is for my tips, tools and colors.
Don't laugh...but mine are in an egg carton. The large 2 1/2 dozen cardboard cartons like you get at Wal-Mart. The little bottles fit in the little slots perfectly and the carton fits in my kitchen drawer. Each one hold 30 bottles.
Mine are in a little clear plastic container I got at walmart. It's about the length and width of a shoebox but shorter. It holds them in one single layer so I'm not always digging for the color I need. And if a jar leaks or something, you just empty it out and stick in the dishwasher. My bigger Americolor bottles are on a large spice rack on the wall, single file so I'm not always moving bottles to get at the one I need. I'm big on organizing for maximum efficiency.
ohhhh I think I might use the egg carton thing IN my plastic thing thanks!
