How does anyone else transport supplies for a class, without looking like you're bringing the entire kitchen?

It's a GP class, we are going to make our own GP for the class, so the mixing bowl is not an issue.

I guess what I'm asking, does anyone out there have an organized way of transporting all the tools and cutters?

I haven't taken any classes, but when I took my stuff to show my grandma how to make some simple flowers, I used a cheap clear plastic toolbox from Walmart...I think it was $6. It has a tray inside and compartments on the lid. It held everything that I needed and was sturdy.

I've also used it for my emergency kit for a wedding cake delivery and it worked great.

I have a flat clear plastic container I purchased at walmart. I also bought a pack of the white plastic silverware organizers. There were 3 in the pack I think. They just fit perfectly into the container I had a section for my brushes, one for scissors, exacto, etc. and another for the modeling tools (ball tool, veining tool, rolling pin, etc.) There was enough room at the end of the container for me to put my little container of crisco, tylose, colors, etc.

When I took classes I used a scrap booking tote, the ones that have wheels and a pull up handle. It held everything, my plastic tub for gumpaste tools, scissors, ruler, a little tub for piping tips, and everything else the teacher asked us to bring.....paper towels etc. Good size tote it was a life saver, especially when I was carrying a cake in the other hand. I've since used my tote for when I deliver cakes it has all my stuff I may need for set up.

I also used one of my husband's old tool boxes. It was big enough for me to carry everything in except my actual cake. A lot of others used tote bags but the box was more organized, it had a ton of compartments in it to keep everything separate.

Have fun in class!

Tool boxes are good. For the Wilton F/GP class I went to Big Lot's and bought a 21 or 22in tool box that all my supplies, minus the rolling pin and matt, fit into. You can check at Walmart for a variety of themt oo. I just liked my Big Lot's one because it was cheap too.
