Baking in Mumbai

Bakingyummies


There was a time not long ago when I thought of giving up on baking since resources were not available easily in Mumbai. Looking for basic pans and equipments has been the most frustrating experience. I read on a blog about Arife in Crawford selling bakeware and I was so happy!!!! I bought a couple of cake pans and cupcake liners being naive enough to not check the quality. After all I was new to baking. I could not make out the color of the liners once baked. I baked a couple of things in the pans and then decided that I would only buy good quality bakeware that lasts for few years if not lifetime. Since I have not bought anything from Arife Crawford for some time now, I am not sure if the quality has improved.

Finding the right baking resources in Mumbai is not difficult any more. I have tried my best to compile all the information that I have regarding the availability of resources in Mumbai.

Updated on 21st Sep 2016.

    1. Hi Siann,
      You can get good quality fondant at CCDS(ccdsshop.com). They stock the Satin Ice brand, though I'm yet to use it. Out of all the fondant brands available in India(very few are available here), Satin Ice is supposed to be the best. Btw, CCDS has their own brand of fondant as well. But I'm not sure about it's quality.

    1. Hi Neha,
      Yes, white butter can be used for Buttercream Icing as well and that is what I use. Besides, white butter gives better results when you want to color the icing.

Regarding sprinkles, you will find them at Arife and Hypericty, Inorbit Mall, Vashi (where they keep the Waitrose stuff). I've got some more sources as well that I need to update on this page.

However, if you saw it at Arife, then it might be available at Heera Mani (they kind of tend to keep the same stuff), the contact details are mentioned above. But whichever brand you buy and from wherever, never buy one that is not refrigerated.

  77. H, where can I get puff pastry sheets in Mumbai? I tried the one available in Nature's Basket, it is more like dough, sheets are so clingy tha they don't separate as sheets and I ended up using them as dough.The stock.is very old , though not expired.Please update if you got any other pastry sheets in Mumbai.Thanks

    1. Hi, I haven't seen Gloripan in any store, neither have I found it online. My regular brand of yeast works pretty well for me, so I never fought too hard to find it. Maybe our friends in Thane can help?
