My name is Amanda and I have a baking problem. No, no, not with the cooking sherry, but with my baking cupboard. I’m going to show you something that has been a source of much frustration, anger, loud clattering and banging and some very bad language. It has been the bane of my life for years and, until recently, one I thought would bug me to my grave – or the end of my baking days, whichever comes first.
That shot was taken before a clever little invention called Cakesnake came into my life. The brain-child of an innovative, but irritated, young woman and her clever-clogs, product designer husband this simple gadget has turned my cupboard around. Cakesnakes are light, are fitted with rubber stoppers on the feet, will fit in most cupboards or deep kitchen drawers and will hold not only all of your bakeware, but chopping boards, roasting pans, pizza trays, pie dishes, cookbooks or platters. In two seconds this appalling mess had been organised within an inch of it’s life and I can now open the cupboard door without the usual accompanying crashing, clattering and swearing as poorly balanced trays and pans slide all over my feet.
The top shelf of my cupboard now – amazingly – holds five baking trays, six cooling racks of various sizes, eight muffin pans (I’ve no idea why I have 8 muffin pans) two brownie pans and a large gem tray! I can’t believe such a simple little invention could make such a difference and I’ll be sending in my order for a second one for the bottom shelf.
Cakesnakes are available online here for only $39.95 (free shipping in Australia) but Elizabeth, the aforementioned irritated but innovative young woman, has offered me one to give away free to my readers.
