Where do I shop?

I have been waiting to write this post for a long time. I wanted to share my excitement and experience with you all. I have always enjoyed the way Bakerella write posts on where she shops. There is hardly any instance when I don't visit the home baking section of super market or pick up a few spetulas from IKEA - a trait almost all bakers can relate to. Although we have a few cake decoration shops in Riyadh, KSA which showcases products from Wilton and other leading brands but shopping in Karachi, Pakistan is altogether a different ball of game. You can find almost everything here; branded and unbranded and in less price. I discovered this shop last time when I was visiting Karachi and when I started this blog, I knew I had to cover this shop.

Pans and cutters...

This shop is located in rather narrow lane of Bohri Bazaar (named after a community in Pakistan) near Saddar which is the oldest market of Karachi. You will find all sorts of pans, cutters, utensils, tools etc. which were not that neatly organized as they could have been. I bought a big ring mould, a large tart tray, a swiss roll tin and a sugar sifter. All this for 600 rupees that is under 10 dollar.
