Eat Your Heart Out, Betty Crocker – Kirkwood, MO

Both the avid and budding baker would love, love, love to get creative in this kitchen. Tucked in a corner and disguised behind pocket doors, a tidy baking station offers a marble work surface for rolling dough with everything in arm’s reach thanks to custom storage overhead and below. Here, shelves, slots and lazy Susans house – and hide – bakeware, appliances, tools of the trade and even a pretty assortment of sprinkles in the most organized fashion. Absolutely scrumptious!
