Back from Taiwan !

I guess my hubby & I had spent about 10mins searching for this baking tools shop in Taiwan somewhere near 'Shilin night market'.



You will see various cake boxes of different sizes & patterns on the top right hand corner of the wall when you enter the shop. This shop is about the same size as our Phoon Huat store in AMK & they conduct their baking classes in a separate shop (forgot to take a pic ;P) next to this baking tools shop.

This is really a great news for people who are lazy to make their own dough. All you have to do is to purchase these ready made dough home, cut them into pieces & baked! Time saving & the best of all, no flour 'flying' around & not much baking tools to wash. *^_^*

Hey, Cathy! You went Taipei, right? You know what, bakery supply stores are on my to-visit list when I plan on my trip to both Taiwan and Hong Kong in the future! My high school best friend has been "nagging" at me so many times to spend time with her in Taipei since she's studying there. LOL! I'm saving my money now! But so hard with so much temptation around me ... cookbooks, bakeware, cookware, experiment ingredients, clothes, accessories, shoes, ... I can't stop listing out the stuff! ARGH!

AND, I always believe that those bakery supply stores in Taiwan and Hong Kong have much, much more to offer than Malaysia ones ... at least, that's what I think. AND, I normally won't let non-baker/-cook people around me know about my intention of visiting these stores while backpacking around in an alien land! They'll think, "This girl siao ar?" HAHA!

Oh, the rose-flavored cookies/sables got my attention the most ... I'm sure I'll spend more than 2 hours in the store and end up with an empty purse. ARGH!

Hey Pei-lin,

Nice to hear from you again *^_^*

I love Taiwan cook books the most as they are so detailed & there are step by step guide on the procedures. This shop sells Wilton stuffs & the prices are quite comparable to Spore 'Phoon Huat'. However, they sold packet fillings like blueberry etc & is quite cheap! Sad to say that I am unable to bring them back to Spore as Taipei is only my 1st stop on my iternery.. Arrghh.... :~(

They sold a variety of ready made dough cookies. I would love to try them all especially their Panda cookies (imagine the pink heart in the rose flavoured cookies are replaced by a panda. I am unable to take a pic of the panada cookies as the chef is standing nearby ;P *sigh*

I went there with my hubby & he, being a non-baker, I guess he was quite bored while I was browsing at the cookbooks there.

Hey Bakertan,

Hahaha.. I wanted to spend more time inside too but my hubby was kinda bored. so I gotta make a move & proceed to 'Shilin night market' for dinner.

There is another shop that we went to other than this. It took us quite a while to locate that shop & when we finally reached the address, it was like a residential area rather than a shop. So, we guess it must have closed down or relocated elsewhere. Such a disappointment... :(
