Baking products / supplies in Bangalore

After returning from the US, I was wondering where to get all the baking supplies at Bangalore. There is no one place where I could get everything. Here are a few shops that I visited / found using Google. It was hard to google even. I would be searching for something and would end up finding something else.

IBCABLR. Institute of Baking and Cake Art
www.ibcablr.com
So far, I have visited this place 4 times. They carry most of the things that u need for baking.
  • Cake pans
  • Bundt pans
  • Baking books
  • Silcon molds
  • Nozzles / Tips . I recently found that they have a tip set something that is similar to Wilton's master tipset.
  • Candles
  • Cake Gel
  • Isomalt
  • Baking powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Cream of Tartar
  • Unflavored Gelatin
  • Clear/White Vanilla Essence. (After finding that Wilton's Clear Vanilla extract is not pure and is just an artificial flavor, I thought why not give it a try. Turned out it isn't that bad. Just cut down the required amount a little in the recipes, and it is good to go for cakes n icing.)
  • Liquid Glucose (which can be substituted for Corn Syrup)
  • Piping bags Disposable and Reusable bags
  • Coupler
  • Canned fruits .Pineapple, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, strawberry, peaches
  • Orange peel
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Chocolate molds
  • Chocolates. Dark Chocolate(Has Sugar. So, cut down the sugar in icings or else its too sweet) , Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate
  • Edible silver beads
  • Colored sugar sprinkles
  • Cupcake covers
  • Muffin pans
  • Cake boards
  • Sugar flowers
  • Flavors. like pineapple, vanilla, butterscotch (Don't remember all of them)
  • Fondant - Order an hour before so they will get it ready. Also check the fondant then and there. I had a very bad batch on a big day!
  • Gumpaste
  • Icing colors / Paste colors
  • Edible photo printing
  • Airbrush colors and Airbrush kit
  • Weighing scale. Conventional and Digital(Got one! It measures in kilograms, grams, ounces. Love it!)
  • Skewers
  • Parchment paper
  • Food wrap
  • Food Mixer
  • Kenwood stand mixer
  • Icing Sugar
  • Self rising flour
  • Shortening and Margarine .They have like 4 varieties (cream shortening and then ones used for biscuits, puff margarine)
  • Glycerine
  • Piping gel
  • Whipping cream
  • Candy thermometer 
  • Hazelnut paste
  • Cake dummy
  • Dried Yeast
  •  Fruit squashes like Kiwi, strawberry
  • Fondant tools
  • Cake preservative
  • Arrowroot powder
  • Neutral mousse powder
  • Strawberry mousse powder 
  • Disco dust, luster dust 
  • Almond meal / powder
Hope I have covered most of the things. In case if I happen to see something else, will update. They are located at 46/3 Mission Road, Bangalore. Call their helping line @ 080 - 22106619 They do deliver but you need to pay for the transport cost / courier cost. **I had serious trouble with IBCABLR this week. I got products from them for my son's bday and had a very bad day. They gave me maida instead of self raising flour and the cakes that I baked got harder after cooling! It was the night before the party and I couldn't do much about it! I just warmed it in microwave and left the cake outside till I served. The fondant that I got from them was very dry and crumbling. There was no elasticity. My husband and I sat till 4am to knead it, but it was of no use. It was just breaking. Thankfully, I had the Wilton and Satin Ice Rolled Fondant that I got from US. We mixed them and tried to use. Even then the fondant wasn't sticking to Wilton's one! However I had to cover the cake with the same and the finish wasn't as good as I expected it to be! **

Vidya said...

Hi. How many volts is your kitchen aid? I am planning to get one from the US and was wondering if that would work in India.

Mekala Ashokkumar said...

Hi Vidya,
Mine is 220v. The US motor will not work here. In case if you are planning to buy from US chk out this link https://www.samstores.com/store.asp?CtgID=298
They have the 220v kitchen aids.
In India, nowadays you can get the Kenwood mixer. Lil costlier, but their features seems very good. Chk that out too!

Hi Mekala,

Great going with your blog, I love it! Very convenient and helpful! I have one question: do you know where I can get Kosher salt in Bangalore? And if not, is there a substitute I can use for it?? Let me know soon. Thanks! :)

Anu said...

Hi Mekala,
Loved yo blog,and would wait for another one...
Mek, plz lemme know, where i can find Gum Tragacanth(tex), or if i can use any substitute fo it. I wish i could practically take baking lessons from you, if u have any ideas like this, plz lemme know. I'm Anu. :)

Anonymous said...

Hi Mekala
A big thanks for all the information. One product that I find hard to get in bangalore is 'sparkles' and pearl dust. Any idea where to find them? I did check the Bakers Baazaar link that you had given but unfortunately not much choices there :(
I was looking for pink sparkles and pearl dust for my kids bday cake!
Surya

Mekala Ashokkumar said...

Sorry for the late reply.. Was out on Vacation!
Kosher Salt - I haven't seen so far here in Bangalore. But it is available at Crawfords Market, Mumbai. Very costly! You can substitute the same with sea salt, but use little lesser than wat the recipe asks for or substitute with equal amt of table salt.
@Anu, Thanks! Gum Tragancanth is available at IBCA, Bangalore. You can enquire at Genereal food additives as they also carry most of the baking supplies.
Also pls send your mail id to mekcafe@gmail.com. I might take a baking class in near future. Will send u details in case if I take one! :)

@ Surya, R. B. Mangharam foods carry something called Glitter dust. You can check with them or you can order it from CCDC, New Delhi. They carry all the products.

Padmini said...

hey Mekala! very interesting read and a useful one too :) I need some help from you. I am planning to start bakery classes from home catering to max 3 students per class. Needed your help in choosing an oven. Would you be able to tell me how should I be choosing the oven and where can I buy it from?

Mekala Ashokkumar said...

Hi Padmini,

Sometimes it would be okay to have a microwave with convection mode. But other times u might want to have an OTG oven. It all depends on what you are gonna teach in the class.

hey Vidya,
just in case you haven't got the stand mixer yet.
the below link is to the KitchenAid distributors in India and you would not need to get it yourself plus get warranty:

also you can get it currently for approx. Rs21150/- at Rediff:

This such a fantastic blog! Wonder if you know where I can source some cupcake boxes ... you know the sort with an insert so that the cupcake doesn't move and the icing doesn't get ruined.

Hi Aarti,

So far, I haven't found double cream here in Bangalore. Heard its available in Mumbai.
For Mumbai stores, please look into my previous comment on purplefoodie's blog.

Regarding stand mixer and piping nozzles, read above article.
@Anonymous : Thanks! :) I do bake cookies as well. I try out new recipes now n then when I find time. Brown sugar can be found at Nilgiris. I believe I mentioned that in the article.
@Abi's Kitchen, Pls call IBCA or General Food additives and check with them.

Regarding marshmallows, its been more than a year since I visited the store in Forum. They had white. Not sure if they still carry them.

Hi Mekala, I heard the owner of Baker's Needs is about to discontinue most of his products. I wish bakers who get supplies from him can talk him out of doing so. He is a boon to most north and east Bangloreans. I hope he continues supplying stuff :(

Great research! What about a first class processor (Cuisinart, most probably)? I think junglee.com is the only way for us to be sure to get a consistently (well, since Cuisinart was forced to buck up after KitchenAid started competing with them) top-rated food processor.

Mekala Ashokkumar said...

Its been long time since I replied to the questions. I apologize. I will try to to answer everyone!
@Rani, findlocales, sharmilabaskar - Thanks! :)

@ Anonymous - KitchenAid is now available in India. So is Kenwood. Don't bother abt getting one frm US and worry abt voltages!

@Dhathri - U can learn from certain bakers who teach frm home, and certain institutes like Lavonne, IBCA!

@ Anonymous regarding cutters - most of the above mentioned stores carry flower cutters

Filo pastry can be bought at 5th Ave, Brigade road

Regarding where to buy fondant - Pls chk the blog

@Divya Reddy - So far i haven't found heavy cream in Bangalore. Nilgris, Spar and Total(sometimes) carry whipped cream which can be substituted.

@ Ayesha Husna - please try Passionate baking

@Archana - Not sure where to get unbleached all purpose flour. Try General Food Additives

@Sathya - Sorry, i can't help you much since i do not know that area!
