I’ve been itching to use my new mixer, but I want to bake something I really really really like. So I decided on Red Velvet cupcakes. But first, I need the ingredients and baking equipment and supplies.
My friends and I met up and went to Sto. Cristo in Divisoria to buy the stuff I needed. I have never been to that part of the city so I needed the support. haha
While I didn’t get everything on my list, I went home happy. I was looking for muffin pans but the ones I want were out of stock in all the stores I went to. That’s odd but at least I can start making my cupcakes using the cupcake wrappers instead! Oh wait, I still need to go grocery shopping tomorrow!
BREAKDOWN OF EXPENSES:
- Bowls and Pans Php 450.00
- Cupcake Wrappers, Liners and Coloring Php 375.00
- Transportation Php 70.00
TOTAL Php 895.00
Items were bought from the following stores:
TOP-TEN GENERAL MERCHANDISE
675 Sto. Cristo St., Brgy. 271 Zone 25, Tondo, Manila
BEST WAY GENERAL MERCHANDISING
691 Sto. Cristo St., Binondo, Manila
Best Way is a baker’s haven – from baking tools and supplies to cake decorating stuff to cute cupcake liners to food coloring to chocolates and more. The store was pretty cramped up, but the attendants were very accommodating. I will definitely buy all my baking supplies there and I will be asking for a discount next time! 😉
Living 5 minutes away from Divisoria definitely has its advantages (minus the traffic and pollution that is).
