A Baker's Pantry
Ever since I started this blog, I constantly found myself running out of pantry staples like sugar, flour, and butter. After one too many mid-whisking runs to the grocery store, I decided to stock up on supplies, Oregon-trail style.
Need to make three tart doughs, a batch of sables and a loaf of brioche? No problem when you've got a twenty five poundbag of flour! And speaking of bread, I've got a pound block of dried yeast : )
I didn't quite have the nerve to get the twenty pound bags of sugar, so just five pounds each of granulated and powdered sugar (it came in handy for the most wicked icing).
My only regret is that I only got one four-pound-pack of butter.
