When top food blogger Made With Pink agreed to road test our Herb and spice Rack the team at Brabantialife were over the moon. We love her blog and thought there might be a twist… and were delighted when she shared her thoughts with us – an ingenious solution to cake sprinkles storage! Let’s hear Andrea’s views on our Herb Rack in matt steel:
“They come in a set with 5 jars and a nice matt stainless steel rack that can be fixed directly onto the wall or hung on a specially designed rail that can also accommodate several of Brabantia’s other kitchen products. But I had no intention of using these spice jars for spices. You see, on a recent trip back home to Canada I discovered a bulk food store that I quickly became obsessed with.
It was called Bulk Barn, and I made at least 5 visits there in 3 days. This place has everything you’d need to decorate a birthday cake or kit out a party. And best of all, it was all in BULK! Sprinkles, Merckens Candy Melts, Royal Icing Roses, Callebaut Chocolate, even piping tips and buttercream! I was in heaven. I made sure to stock up on every colour of sprinkle my heart desired. But unfortunately this has left me with at least a dozen plastic bags filled with sprinkles that I’ve had to tuck in a drawer.
So last weekend instead of going out to dinner or a movie, I stayed at home and organised my sprinkles in my new spice jars like a total dork. And I loved it! So now rather than bags and bags of sprinkles that sit tucked away in a drawer or cupboard, I can proudly hang them in the jars on the mounted display rail above my kitchen counter. I had so many different colours and types of sprinkles that I didn’t even have enough jars. I had a rainbow of colours to suit every season, so that meant I had both black and orange sprinkles. And you know what that means….. a Halloween cake was beckoning to be made!
I ended up making a 3 tiered chocolate and vanilla cake covered in orange buttercream and dripping in chocolate ganache. And of course, it was topped with lots and lots of sprinkles.
The spice jars came with two different inserts that worked great for sprinkling just the right amount of sprinkles onto my cake.
