need kitchen INVENTORY list

Recommended Posts

To shop owners here.... i was wondering if you have a list of equipment, supplies and tools needed for baking and cake decorating. I need to build a completely new kitchen that would primarily be used in making coffee shop cakes and birthday/wedding cakes.

An overseas investor is interested in bringing my business abroad and they need me to send an inventory list asap so that we could do initial costings. Hope you can share your list with me.... or is there a list i could check online?

Thanks!

Judy

Since you have an existing business, why don't you make a list of the equipment that you currently are using and start from that? If you post what you already have maybe people can chime in and tell you what they would add to the list.

actually, i'm making cakes now from my home kitchen and i'm kind of insecure that i may not have all the "professional" stuff that a commercial kitchen should have.

In another thread there was some discussion about maintaining an inventory list of the stuff in your freezer. This is my new solution:

I adjust quantities as I pull things out, then update and reprint after shopping.

You can laminate the sheet and use an erasable marker to write on it, saves time, paper and troubles.

@teonzo  I appreciate the suggestion. When I've done the lamination system for similar things in the past for whatever reason it didn't work well for me.

Took the time recently and did the same with our chest freezer.  The thing is a PITA to find stuff in sometimes, so not only did we inventory, but put a bit of a 'map' concept in it as well!  Now tell me, EG - what to cook!? ;)

We've done a similar thing with our wine fridge, which holds about 200+ bottles.  Each shelf is numbered, and we have a spreadsheet sorted by color, region, sub-region, producer and vintage.  Very fast and easy to find something specific.

LOL. 

 

I laugh, stemming from some of our chats - I used to have a big 250 bottle fridge, then I moved, and had kids, I now have a 45 bottle island wine fridge with a case or two in the cold room.  Money seems to go elsewhere these days.

 

:P

What's funny is that much of our collection wasn't purchased (at least by us)!  Years ago, when my wife was taking wine education classes, we would hold a weekly tasting group in our apartment so that she and some of her fellow students who she became friendly with (and me by default since I live here too and like to learn) could study wines from a different region each week to be able to do a really deep dive.  Many of the people who came were very appreciative of us opening our home like that and would constantly bring gifts.  And also, through other stuff, wineries would send us wines directly... so we've got that going for us... which is nice...

I agree that @TicTac's freezer contents are enviable.  For some reason, I'm more entranced by this one 🙃:
