Jakarta Baking Stores

While looking for a comprehensive listing of baking stores/classes in Jakarta online, I realized there was a serious dearth of available information. My search felt all too much like finding a ‘needle in a haystack’ to use a very-overused phrase. So I’ve compiled my findings in this post along with opinions, and will definitely add to it when/if I find out any more.

Bluebell (for classes & baking supplies)
A great store with loads of available baking supplies (mostly Wilton). You can find most of what you would need over here, though the prices tend to be a bit steep (most things are imported). They also have some great one-day classes (though again the prices are a bit high for the classes), and if there is enough interest, they sometimes offer the ‘PME Professional Diploma Course’.

Kompleks Ruko Blok GN-1 No. 35
Kelapa Gading Permai, Jakarta 14250
Tel: 021 4517082 / 4517083

Toko Ani (for baking supplies & classes)
A wonderful place to get baking supplies; it’s affiliated with Bluebell above, and they share a common class schedule. Both stores have a good variety of (mostly imported) baking supplies and also some interesting classes.

Natural Cooking Club (for classes)
This place offers loads of classes, at three locations in Jakarta. Visit their website for more information about class availability/timings. The place is a bit difficult to find, but they have a great availability of classes & the class prices are very affordable.

Jakarta Pusat
Telp. 021-3921779

Toko Bahan Kue TITAN (for classes & baking supplies)
A wonderful store with loads of availability of great equipment. A lot of their selection is local, so the prices are decent. Plus they have these great affordably priced classes held by the Bogasari Baking Center — mostly for local Indonesian delicacies including cakes/cookies/pastries/breads etc. They’ve a website, but it’s not that updated; you can get a course schedule from one of their stores (though I believe most of the classes are held at the Fatmawati branch). Hoping to join one of their courses soon & will update once I do.

Toko Loyang (for courses & baking supplies)
This store has a wonderful selection of baking supplies (mostly local), and also a small bakery. As part of the NCC I mentioned above, they offer a good range of classes every month. Their classes listing is pretty updated on the website. This is also where I learnt the cupcake decoration I blogged about earlier.

Of Cupcake Poop & Edged Brownies

Of Cupcake Poop and Edged Brownies

I’ve got this habit of becoming a Facebook fan of all my favorite sites so that I can easily keep track of updates. Works better for me then subscribing to RSS feeds, since I tend to pay more attention when interesting things pop up in my Facebook live feed (that sounds wonderfully stalker-ish I know).

So the other day this fascinating post popped up while I was browsing on my Blackberry entitled “Cupcake Poop”. Of course I was all like how can this be! How can anyone even think of putting the word Poop next to Cupcake (oxymoron!) So the next time I was on my computer I went to read the post & found a wonderful secret that we bakers tend to keep to ourselves (and definitely not something I’ve ever given a name to)

“Cupcake Poops” are those delicious bits of batter that spill and bake up on the edges of the cupcake pan, delivering tiny crispy little cupcake cookies. We all know them and love them dearly.

Cupcake Project whipped up some cupcake poop by following a pound cake recipe and dropping small spoonfuls of batter onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and baked at 350F for 15 minutes. The result? A wonderful crispy treat of cupcake poop. Will definitely be trying this out soon, maybe with some other cupcake recipe (the same concept *should* apply across cupcake recipes, Cupcake Project notes).

The other wonderful little thing that crops up while baking is the Edge. You know what I mean? That piece of cake or brownie that was made at the edge of the pan so it has that delicious crispy exterior to contrast with the soft chewy center. Unfortunately there are only so many edge pieces making dessert…unless you use the Baker’s Edge Brownie Pan! You’ll never have to fight over the limited amount of edge pieces anymore! 😉 Though this might take away some of the magic of the edge piece as well. Definitely want one of these some day. Must buy soon!

Have not really been baking much recently, but would like to complete my series on the cupcakes that I’d started earlier. Look out for the rest of the recipes really soon! 🙂 ❤ Sue
