I'm not very sure what exactly Alannia. I thought of the tools which is used to curl the petals. I don't know what it is called, but I've seen it before in Wilton. Price I'm not sure. Also my piping bags are all used up, so I thought maybe getting it in either Wilton or Bake With Yen.

Remember, I said I will be selling my bakes soon....I wanna first check out the cost of items first. So I'll be going to Wilton first and head over to Bake With Yen probably.

I think Singapore will be cheaper for Malaysians but for Singaporeans to buy in Malaysia, may not be cheaper.

For a rough guide, if it's based on $ for $, the price of baking goods in Singapore is cheaper.

Hi MayMay,

Check out Hocatsu at Bandar Sunway as well. I called them up to check whether they can bring in the Takoyaki mould since their Co (Sia Huat) in Sg sells the mould. I heard they carry lots of baking utensils. I might go there next week to buy silicon mat and ramekin.

Here is the addr :

Hocatsu (M) Sdn Bhd
23, Jln PJS 11/1
Bandar Sunway

Tel : 03- 5633 3588

Hi cete, I've called them up as well before but sadly they are only open during normal working hours. So means I can only go if I am on leave...As for the Takoyaki Mould, my cousin sis got it for me already from Singapore. When I'm on leave, I will also go there to check it out. Thought of getting the same thing as you as well...heheh...

Cete, unfortunately I work on Saturdays as well. I'm not very sure where exactly did she get the mould from. But if I'm right, it cost about SGD21. Earlier mngzara gave me their address. Perhaps you can ask her as well. Sadly I have erased the message.

Hello to all the bakers here at KC! This is my first post here. Very glad to find this forum. I love to bake but always ended up unsuccessful. :(

Anyway I tried Vi's sugar paste recipe. But don't know why mine was very dry and hard. At first it was all super gluey and sticky and I couldn't knead it at all. So I keep pouring (yes, pouring) icing sugar into the mixture until I finally reach a state that the paste can get off my hands. By then it has turn very hard, a bit like dry clay. So I never got the "bread dough like" stage. I think mine is not the right texture. *shrug* If anyone knows what cld have gone wrong, pls enlighten this slowcoach here.

I left it to activate over the night in room temperature. Didn't see any change to the lump of clay. grin The good thing about my failed sugar paste is, it dries up super fast and the shape can hold very well, as compared to the Wilton fondant I bought. (The Wilton fondant is still wet after I left it overnight.) But I think it'll taste real horrible, like sugar clay, hard and dry. I hope nobody eats those deco.

Sharing with you some of the things I made with my clay. Nothing fanciful since I'm never a creative person...lol... The matt ones are from my clay, the waxy ones are the Wilton fondant, which still have not dried!
