    Baking Ingredients

    You will find simple things like sprinkles and powdered sugar for all your finishing needs as well as flavouring agents and cake gels. We spotted some ingredients like coloured sugar pastes that we haven’t seen at any regular retail chains. These are basically fondant-like substance and can be used to cover cakes or rolled into shapes. Syrups like butterscotch, blueberry, peach, and strawberry, all kinds of nuts, custard powder, corn flour, gelatin mixes, dried berries, cocoa powder, chocolate slabs, and general baking ingredient can be picked up too.

    Baking Moulds

    We spotted chocolate and cake moulds in the usual heart-shaped, square, and rectangular moulds along with interesting abstract designs if you want to experiment. All these are silicone moulds and they are perfect for anyone who specialises in making chocolate truffles and chocolate bites. We bought ourselves a square-shaped mould and some chocolate powder from the baking ingredients section just to see if you can make ourselves some chocolate. Turns out, we can’t.

    Baking Display

    Whether it’s a batch of cupcakes or a three-layered cake, you need to display it so that your friends can wow over it. Or if you are a home baker, then for your customers to look and love. The store’s extensive collection of quirky, cute, colourful, and conventional display units should sort out the trick for you. We spotted these cute polka-dotted mini buckets that you can use to pile candies in. Cupcake stands seem to take the centre stage with fancy stands that look straight out of Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to cardboard ones that feature floral patterns. We even spotted a Ferris Wheel designed cupcake holder and we can see ourselves spinning the wheel to pick the one we like.
