Man shall not live by bread alone, but also on sweet bakes of cakes, pies, tarts, muffins, and whatever else you can produce from a combination of sugar, flour and butter. While buying a dozen red velvet cupcakes off the counter comes easy, it doesn’t beat the satisfaction of baking your own from scratch at home. Inspired to whip something up in the kitchen? Stock up your pantry and make sure you're well-equipped with all the tools and utensils you need. Hit these shops and be on your way.

If getting flour from the nearest supermarket is a struggle due to the limited supplies, just stay home and order a few bags from Lim Siang Huat. They have flour for making bread, noodles, and even roti prata. The store also stocks groceries if you need more rice and noodles in the house to last till the 'circuit breaker' ends.

This old school shop started as a provision store but it's since become a favourite jaunt for aspiring bakers and pastry chefs. While it stocks all the staple like flour, cake tins and icing sugar, it also has a great selection of premium products like Tahitian vanilla pods and Callebaut and Valrhona chocolate. Look out for seasonal items too: Sun Lik Trading imports products like lotus paste from Hong Kong during mooncake season and the store's in-house brand makes its own candied fruit for Christmas. You can also grab your baking needs online during this period.

It's a decent place to shop if you're not looking for anything too fancy. Drop by the warehouse to check out what's in stock or purchase online and get your goods delivered to your doorstep.
