General Food Addictives - Baking Supplies in Bangalore - II

In a quest to find good quality baking supplies I landed to General Food Addictive’s (GFA). A hot destination for all baking related items…whether you say baking pans, tins, molds to chocolate chips, essence, flavoring items, food color, etc…one hot stop for all baking related stuff.
One fine afternoon bitten by baking bug, three desperate house wives cum food blogger’s hired a taxi and made a trip to GFA. This trip was much planned and most pending one in the to-do list of ours. Me, Valar and Deepa had plans to visit GFA from so long but could not make out as the shop is very far nearly 25Kms. from our houses.
As we hired a taxi, it took nearly an hour and half to reach the place. By the time we were there the shop was closed for afternoon lunch. We waited for 20-25 minutes on the other side of the road for the shop to open. Finally shop opened and we entered the shop. It is very pretty small shop loaded with gorgeous amounts of baking supplies.
This little shop has got three sweet store helpers who graciously help you in finding the items. The good thing about the store is they have got a brochure where you can find all the list of items which are present in the shop. I found it very helpful, because most of the things we forget while listing down and some things are not in the display too.
We three had great time picking up the things….as the shop is far away from our houses we picked up lots of things and in more amounts….like 6 months’ supply of chocolate chips, chocolate bars, flavorings, etc. Upon asking about ‘Whipping Cream’, the store owner has introduced us with two types of options like a powder one which you can use as an instant topping for desserts and the other one is ‘Tropolite’ which is non-dairy frozen product…..which you need to thaw in the refrigerator before using. You can store it in the freezer for 4-6 months depending on the manufacturing date.
In a attempt to try we bought both the powder and frozen one. I must say enjoyed working with two of them. This tropolite brand whipping cream is good for frosting cakes. I tried it and liked the results. Whereas the powder form of ‘whipping cream’ which I bought was a ‘Blue Bird’ band, which is good for topping on desserts. The good thing about the powder one was it can be made very instantly. The bad thing is the consistency of powdered whipping cream is not like the one of regular whipping cream, which we use for cakes.
Apart from whipping cream, we also bought chocolate chips, muffin liners,  disposable loaf pans, cookie cutters, lollipop molds, Hazel nuts, colored sprinkles, disposable piping bags, nozzles, chocolate bars, flavoring essence, food colors, candied cherries, whipping cream (both powder and frozen one), spatula, etc.
