A few months ago this brand new, orphaned spice carousel came my way and I knew I could find a use for it sooner or later. After Christmas, I tend to go a bit nuts around the house, tossing and purging cupboards and closets. It's also when I came up with this idea for the carousel:
I have a lot - and I mean a LOT - of different sprinkles for desserts. Apart from simple sprinkles in solid colours, I've also got them in different shapes for different holidays. Because of the size of the two jar openings, either to sprinkle or spoon out, I knew not all of them would work. I got out all my miscellaneous containers and jars, realized I had 12 that would fit and started to fill them.
I'm very happy with the results. The carousel sits beside my microwave, on the opposite side of the kitchen from my usual photo spot and it's adorable to look at. While it's not a true rainbow of colours, I think it's still pretty cute. :)
Apart from saving cupboard space, the other bonus is that when I look at them, they inspire me with future baking ideas. :)
