bkrgrll writes: I love it when a baker's kitchen is highlighted. 3 years ago I built a house and did it totally around my kitchen and walk thru pantry...... its always good to get ideas from others who love to bake.... and nothing like pretty objects to display your baking in... I use old fashioned pastry stands to show multiple layers of baked goods.... and am currently on the hunt for the perfect cake stand (with a lid would be awesome, as I have a dog and a cat).....
