And you thought your kitchen was messy…

This was the mess on our front counter Saturday night when I started cleaning up.  We were busy all day, but not swamped like a week ago.  I even got all of the cakes for Sunday base iced before I started cleaning up.  On days when we aren't too busy, when kind of get things clean as we go, but on busy days, stuff just gets thrown everywhere.  We get our base icing in the big buckets like the one on the right end of the counter.  Our buttercream colors come in the small buckets like the one on the counter and the ones stored under the counter.  We get whipped colors in bags.  You can see some of them in the plastic container in the middle of the counter. 

 

 

 

 

This is the other counter where we do most of the work.  You can see our turntables at each end.  You can see some of the bottles of the color we use in our air brushes.  The stainless steel counters are higher than normal kitchen cabinets, plus when you put the cake on one of the turntables, you can work on it without bending over. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a picture of the cutest cake I did on Saturday.  It is made with three little four inch round layers of white cake. We have a whole set of little fairies, but this is the first cake I have made using them.  Sorry about all the mess in the background.  I didn't have time to move the mess out of the way. 

I drove to St. Louis after work Saturday night.  It was bed time when I got there.  Spent Sunday with the grandkids.  The weather was nice and cool.  Came home late Sunday night.  Spent today paying bills, doing laundry, etc.  Finally got my desk cleaned off.  Still have one more load of clothes to put in the dryer.  I wanted to go out and take my Photo Quest pictures today, but it didn't happen.  I took a nap this afternoon instead.  Got a couple more things I need to check out on line, then it will be time to go to bed.  Sweet dreams, everyone!
