my almost 9-year-old is the cook in the house. and the baker! we were at the point where we were dragging the heavy kitchenaid mixer a couple times a week, so i decided when i simplified our kitchen to create a specific space just for baking. really, this is lily’s space.
i still wanted to keep things clean and simple, so its just the mixer and sugar & flour canisters, along with some really pretty anthro measuring cups. but its all within reach for lily so she can bake to her heart’s content without needing to call me every time she couldn’t reach something.
but you don’t just bake with flour and sugar…
there’s all the other goodies, too, but they’re too ugly to have out! and i had them on a too high/too small shelf across the kitchen, so for this to be a legit baking station, it all had to move. its so much better now, all in one space!
and i cleared out one of our 2 junk drawers (why 2?!) to put all the little necessary gadgets as well.
just doing what i can to ensure fresh banana bread in the morning ;)
