For today’s post I am actually going to be showing you guys how to organize your cake decorating supplies!
When I first started learning how to decorate cakes I would buy something new practically every time I went into the store. Before I knew it, I needed a new home for my cake decorating supplies.
Not that I was spending a bunch of money on cake stuff.
I would only spend a couple bucks each time, but before I knew it my kitchen was being taken over by cake tools!
If you didn’t know this about me, I love to organize things! I am always reorganizing my house and all of my family’s things. My husband is always ragging on me because I will move some of his things. Probably sounds familiar 🙂
When my cake stuff started to fill up a tote, and then another tote, I decided it was time to organize my cake decorating supplies.
Now, I have a pretty small kitchen. Not compared to other kitchens. But compared to all of my cooking and baking tools that I have.
I wanted something that I would be able to pull out while I am decorating a cake and then be able to put it away while i am not decorating.
I found these cute rolling carts at Michael’s Stores and thought “OMG, this is perfect!”
If you would like to check out some different ways to organize a rolling cart, see this post by thediyplaybook here! Casey also shares a super cool accessory from Michael’s for your cake cart that you will just LOVE!
The cart is small enough to tuck away somewhere out of the way. With the three deep shelves it has plenty of room for what i use pretty much every time I am decorating a cake.
On the top shelf, I organized all of my tools that I use for icing a cake. I have my spatulas, piping bags and piping tips.

For the middle shelf, I have my cake boards, rubber gloves, toothpicks, circle cutters, cupcake papers, food color markers, and my spray bottle that I use quite frequently.
The bottom shelf is used for my bin of gel food colors, some support dowels/straws, and my squeeze bottles that I use for royal icing and drip cakes.
Of course it has taken me some trial & error and reorganizing to find what works best for me. If you want to organize your cake decorating supplies, I would suggest buying one of these carts! Last time I went into Michael’s I even saw a bigger one that would be great if you have a lot of tools that you use a lot. Or if you want to organize all of your cake decorating supplies in one place.
At first, I used my middle shelf for my sprinkles. Since then I have acquired so many different ones I had to move them into their own separate tote. I accumulated so many because I like to make my own sugar sprinkles. You can check out my tutorial on how to make your own sugar sprinkles, here!
