Put custom dropdown in KDE panel


The KDE Panel has many great features such as applets and extensions. However, I believe there is a major missing functionality. I would like to put the programs I use most often on a dropdown (or drop up) menu next to the K Menu. When I click on it, a K menu should appear listing the programs I have decided to put there.
The only solution I have devised so far is to create a sub-item in the K menu that I called Personal. I copied all the applications in that subfolder using kmenuedit. Then I right-clicked on the K panel, chose Add > Application Button > Personal > Add this menu.

Now the icon i want is displayed down there. Yet there is obviously a pair of it in the K menu. Is there a way I can hide that one in the menu, while keeping the icon on the panel??
