This is my last post before Christmas and rather than give you another recipe , I have decided to give you a ‘tour’ of my food cupboards instead.
Dom over at blog Belleau Kitchen has a monthly challenge called ‘Random Recipes’ where he asks people to bake a recipe chosen by some random method from a random cookbook. I have entered a couple of times in the past and would love to more regularly, but sadly the whole ‘random’ aspect freaks me out a little bit!
I love to know in advance what I am baking and have things planned in advance – did I ever tell you I am a control freak?! Anyhoo, I digress. This month, Dom has asked us all to open our cupboard doors to the world and show us their contents. He’s calling it ‘Dare to Bare’!
So, behold my rather messy food cupboard. I didn’t say I was a control freak about the insides of cupboards, as you can see.
The picture at the top is my main food cupboard – sweet to the left and savoury to the right. No idea why I separated like that, but I did. You can see some of my baking ingredients, as well as some US type produce I have picked up on my travels.
Since starting my blog, I have expanded things into my walk-in cupboard, which I have a tiered basket thing going on (above). The top level of which is dedicated to all things baking. I also food baggies, things for foodie photos etc. on levels underneath.
On another shelf I have a large box full of cake decorations, flavours and colourings (above) – another expansion after starting Cakeyboi.
And lastly back to the kitchen and the bottom level of another cupboard which houses my spices. This reeks when you open the door, there is so much crammed in there.
So, that is where the Cakeyboi magic happens! Bit messy, but it gets the job done.
It just leaves me to say have a very Merry Christmas with all of your loved ones and I will be back with another post very soon.
