Bakemate is a shop in Jeddah that supplies baking tools and ingredients. It is between McDonald’s and Cake Arts in Quraish street.
As of this writing, Bakemate has changed its name to Moltaqa, but the location is still the same. Cake Arts, which was another baking supplies store beside it, discontinued its business and the spot for Cake Arts is now part of Bakemate or Moltaqa. So Moltaqa has now extended to almost the size of three stores.
Who should go to this place?
Anyway, here are some of the products in Moltaqa/Bakemate, but I must warn you that there are some products there that are seasonal and placed in the shelf at a limited time. Especially for fondants. So when you see one, better buy it especially if it is hard to find in the supermarket, because most likely, you won’t see that product in the next visit.
For the cake mix, the price usually range from 12-30 riyals. 1 pack of mix is 1 kilo. There’s red velvet cake mix, croissant mix, bread mix, strawberry cheesecake mix, etc.
Some of the cake decorating tools are pricey, but reasonable price since you won’t easily find them in other places. I suggest going to Cake Decoration Center in Gharnatah street for more options.
The cupcake liners, containers for desserts are usually below 30 riyals for 500-1000 plus pieces. Not bad at all. They don’t have too many designs though, most of them are just brown, white, blue, and pink. If you are looking for party colors, check Bashawat and other souqs (market) in Jeddah.
Tubs of Syrup and Filling
Tubs of syrup, caramel, strawberry fillings- (all smiles here). So if you need loads of butter, cheese, gelatin…they’re all there!
The cake box is what I’m really thankful for. They didn’t have these cake boxes before. Boxes are one of the hardest things to find for those who just bake as a hobby. Transporting cupcakes and cakes without a box can be difficult at times. I’m really thankful they have them available now. =) You can buy them in bulk. If you want to buy per piece, you can buy in Cake Decoration Center, Jeddah
Here’s a video I made of what’s inside Moltaqa shop, Jeddah
