For some of us, baking is quite the stress buster; whipping the batter, rolling out the dough, popping it in the oven and watching it turn a beautiful golden brown. You might make the yummiest, moistest chocolate cake and the gooy-iest brownies, but when it comes to making our baking look pretty, we all need a little bit of help. Here’s our list of the go-to places when we’re planning to bake that perfect dessert, both for decorations as well as for essentials.

This bakery’s been around in GK 2 for a while and a lot of us have grown up on their home-made ice cream. They’re not a baking supplies store, but when you’re in a fix and need a cake tin or that liquid colour for the perfect red velvet cake or even a cute little sugar decoration, they’ve got your immediate basic needs covered.

Forget all those rushed trips to the nearest dairy. The Batter House has whipping cream powder, which you can store at your house and take out at your whim. They keep everything you could possibly need for your baking adventures, from ingredients, baking tools {we love the cake slicer and the colourful rolling pins}, chocolate molds, cookie cutters, cutesy edible cake toys, packaging and even premixes for those who don’t want to start that birthday cake from scratch!

Modern Bazaar

When in doubt, drive down to the nearest Modern Bazaar. More often than not, they have what you need, or at the least, a close substitute. From basics like flour, eggs and fruit, to cake mixes, ready-made frosting and a bunch of food colouring {in both liquid and powder options}, they may not have the fancy flowers, but they make the baking process possible.
