Fondant, Essence & Cupcake Liners: All Your Baking Needs For Every Budget

Raisa posted on 11 August

Ten-Second Takeaway

We found a one-stop-shop for all your baking supplies – from tins and moulds to imported ingredients. All the bakers have to check this one out!

Baking 101

From professional bakers to home bakers and amateur “make-a-mess-of-the-kitchen” bakers, Apna Dukan stocks all your requirements. Located near Chaplin Cinema, behind the meat section of the New Market, it’s a tiny store that’s always full of bakeaholics. It claims to be “sasta bhi accha bhi’ and it is.

Bake Me Away

They have every baking ingredient you can think of – from the basics of cocoa powder, icing sugar, brown sugar, essence {not just vanilla, but strawberry, almond, rose, mango} to the less commonly found ingredients like rice crispies, cake butter and baking flour. What’s awesome is that the ingredients come for different price brackets – they have products from generic brands like cocoa powder that come in huge sacks that you can buy for much cheaper but you also get imported products from Hershey’s. Blue Bird, Hyacinth and Cadbury’s ingredients work well for the middle range.

Get Baked

They’re well stocked with baking and kitchenware too. Cupcake moulds, cupcake liners and cake tins in every size and shape imaginable {they even have Christmas-themed moulds!}, colourful measuring spoons, piping bags and nozzles, fondant cutters {you get the prettiest flower patterns}, weighing scales, spatulas, boxes to package your ready cakes in {the red boxes with the white polka dots are adorable}; from scratch to completion everything your cake needs to be prepped is available here.

So, We’re Saying…

There are a couple of other baking stores around Apna Stores, the most famous one is Babur Ali but go here if you want the best prices and most variety. With prices as low as INR 12 for a bottle of vanilla essence and INR 20 for a kilo of sugar, any one is set to become a baker. This shop will make sure you never have to struggle to find ingredients again.

#LBBTip

Skip the queue {and there’s always a long one!} – make a list of what you want, how much of it and the brand you prefer and leave it with the shop attendants. Chuck around New Market and come back after a while and your bags will be prepped and ready to go.
