bakers dreams

1.  Someone else doing the cleanup work – anyone would do, but someone you are physically attracted to would be ideal… or a robot… or an adorable talking kitten.

2.  Ingredients that stay fresh forever so you will never see alien plant life appear in your refrigerator again.

3.  A magic spell that proofs yeast dough instantly.

4.  A HUGE island.

5.  A room full of dishes and cake stands like Martha Stewart’s prop room – plus a staff of “prop librarians” to help you plate on the perfect dish.

6.  This view out the window (without any problems associated with high-altitude baking).

7.  Free post-baking massages.

8.  The ability to stop the clock to finish everything before guests arrive.

9.  The stove that you see in the window at Williams-Sonoma.  It’s a La Cornue CornuFé Stove and it’s $8,600.

This is the only thing on the list with an actual price tag, but it’s so unlikely that anyone I know will ever own one that it belongs on the same list as the magic spell.

10.  Great Grandma’s recipe book (which she probably didn’t have – she just put in a little bit of this and a little bit of that).

    Heward’s Handy Cabinet. Looks like a standard kitchen cabinet from the outside, but you can store up to 50 appliances in it and the one you want is always right in front when you open the door.

  2. Oh, my. I hope no one will think less of me if I just stay here on this page a little longer with….him. I don’t know if he’s someone famous that I should know the name of, but in any case, thank you.

    A magical lightweight mixer that would continually test and adjust to perfectly cream butter and sugar, know precisely when to stop whipping cream, and would have an expert knowledge of whipping egg whites to various stiffness and just ‘make it happen’. Oh, and it would self-clean all the nooks and crannies.

  4. Tracy James says:

    Loved your list and as my kitchen is only about 5 square metres I drooled over the HUGE island and Martha Stewart’s prop room :-)

  5. Jeanne says:

    Great grandmas recipe book

  6. Nur Amy says:

  7. Beth says:

    I’ll take those post baking massages :-)!

  8. Jessica says:

    I would LOVE a huge island!!!
    My kitchen has very little counter space.

  10. Debbie says:

    #10 would be at the top of my list. Some things are priceless.
    But would I be too greedy if I said I want them all?

  11. Shawn says:

    Clean up!!!!

  12. Alexie says:

    I would love grandma recipe book and the ability to stop the clock before guest arrives.

  13. Robert Peck says:

    That feeling that you get when your through cooking and the dishes ,pots and pans have to be cleaned but they have all been cleaned by an unknown everlasting friend .Thank god !!!

  14. Kimber says:

    The ability to taste-test and sample and eat all the raw cookie dough/cake batter without gaining any weight or arteries clogging with no fear of salmonella. So basically a rainbow unicorn.

  15. Meggan says:

    Honestly, I so want the stove and I also would love to be able to stop time…

  16. Olubukola Esther says:

    Lots to learn from u,thanks love

  17. Tiffany says:

    Awesome list! I especially loved the idea of someone doing the cleanup work and Martha Stewart’s prop room, I could just admire that room for hours. Running out of baking ingredients is a problem that I tend to have so having a mechanism to replenish used ingredients would be rather awesome!

  18. Mary says:

    A way bigger kitchen. Bigger than an island. A continent.

  19. John C. says:

    I’ll take the stove as long as the temp setting in the oven is within .005 degrees and the burners can really just simmer things instead of boiling the crap out of them.

  20. Melinda says:

    I am leaning towards #6. Having recently moved from the mountains in Canada to the beach in Panama. I am experiencing learning to bake in a sea level, very humid climate.

  21. Annelien Smit says:

    I love your 10 things yes. Especially the view. If I can choose one thing it will be a fairy with a magic wand to make all my efforts look as beautiful as on the pictures of the recipes I try.

  22. Linda Sharp says:

    I am a cupcake project virgin so I am brand new to your blog ..all thou I have to admit I am excited about learning more about your baking tips & cupcake idea’s.

  23. Barbara J Wilson says:

    I must have the large island with the amazing stove that faces the view .

  24. Lea says:

    I would love to have a beautiful island in my kitchen for when I’m baking. But I do have to say getting post baking massages sounds pretty good as well.

  25. Patty says:

    Definitely the time.. I’m notorious for always running late! & even though I have an island it’s not big enough!So those 2! I don’t mind cleaning. looking forward to learning!

  26. Zainab Butt says:

    Definitely the first one ! Someone to do the clean up ! Specially when you laboured for hours and think it’s all over and a glance at the sink and counters leaves you frustrated !!!

  27. Crystal says:

    Love so many on that list! The gigantic island is probably the main one likely to come true for me when I get my dream house in the next couple of years.

  28. isabel sousa says:

    i m sorry but i like it all .Because all is need in a kitchen thanks for all your ideas

  29. Maura De Shane says:

    I would love a Kitchen Aid mixer. Aside from my little hand held, every cookie and cup cake I have ever made was mixed by ✋. Who wouldn’t love counters that were built acording to your height. But then thats where a masseuse would be needed.

  31. Nora22 says:

    Gee, this is really HARD. I’ve already got the hunky cleanup guy, so I don’t need #2, #4, #5, #7 or #8. I also have the view and I love raising dough so much that I often punch it down a few extra times (just to watch it rise again).

    It’s between #9 and #10, and although that stove looks amazing, guess I’ll have to go with #10. Grandma died before I was born, and I hear she was a fabulous, prolific, extreme-level baker! And I’ve got not even ONE of her recipes…

  32. Michaelyn says:

    A full room of dishes and cake stands is definitely on my wish list. You don’t know how many times I have to turn around my kitchen at home looking for this or that to put a cake or pie on. Lol. Eh! The work! But I would love a machine that icings your cake for you. I suck at that.

  34. Rita says:

    I would love to have a freezer/refrigerator that covers one complete wall, lots of cabinet space with room for pantry items and small appliances. I always tell my husband I’d like to have a huge kitchen with bedrooms and bathrooms surrounding it…there could be a small sitting area for friends and family in the kitchen, a long island with a dining table/chairs to complete it. It would open out onto a covered patio.
