I love living in the south. One thing that I don’t like though is the feeling that I am so far away from suppliers or good deals. We are a couple of kilometers away from Divisoria, Cubao, Shaw, or even Manila where shops that sell raw materials, and products with affordable deals are located. When I started doing my cake pop hobby, I started buying baking supplies like cutters, fondant, fondant rollers, sticks, sprinkles and other baking accessories. I was only able to find a few stores that sell these items like Living Well in Podium and Cooks Exchange in Glorietta and Megamall. Since these stores are in malls, they also price their products high. My boss keeps on recommending Chocolate Lover’s in Cubao but it’s quite far from where we live. The cost of gas spent going there will probably match the mark up on the products sold in Makati.
When I was getting a little serious with my baking, hubby finally realized that we need to look for a closer supplier with good and affordable baking items. When I spoke to Cha, our cake supplier during Lucas’ party, she told me a place in Sucat that sells these items. Internet-savvy husband found it.
Love to Bake is located in BF Paranaque. If you are familiar with The Ruins, it is near there. It is right behind Puregold. Love to Bake is just one of four stores that sell various baking supplies. The supplies match the price and variety of stores in Divisoria and Chocolate Lovers.
Love to Bake sells baking tools, accessories, baking aids like shortening, sprinkles, gum paste and coloring, and various packaging boxes.
What I also like about Love to Bake is that one of the owners is there and is so willing to share what she knows about baking.
The other stores also sell dried fruit, nuts and other common baking ingredients.
Another supplier that we found here in the South is Baking Buddies. It is in Bricktown Subdivision in Parañaque. It is just one tricycle ride away from our place so it’s pretty convenient. What I like about Baking Buddies is they sell chocolate melts that are hard to find here in the Philippines. They also sell baking tools and even baking books.
I am pretty sure that there are more suppliers in the South, but these two meet my requirements pretty good.
Here are their contact details:
