review : not comfortable, not enough space to move around, NON Air conditioned/prices *
personally, I dont like the shop but its the closest to where I lived and the cheapest for ingredients.
its messy, small aisle, hot, staff are not helpful when the boss isn't there BUT prices is the lowest
Expect to find a looot of baking equipments in piles, paper cups,cheap plastic toys decoration,cheap cookies cutter,decorating tips etc
The baking ingredients is the cheapest compare to other shop I'm reviewing.
Chocolate,fondant,butter,cheese (parmesan 1 kg 110.000 - not branded) If you are planning to buy ingredients in bulk and saving couple of dollars, this is the place.

ani is the distributor for wilton bakeware in indonesia, expect to find a huge selection of wilton baking ingredients and equipment (by far this shop is the most well stocked for wilton brand in jakarta compare to others I'm reviewing)
buttercream enthusiast can find a better selection for wilton decorating tips
also good selection of food colors, oil based colors (for candy,chocolate),food color spray,powdered food colors, edible color markers etc
fondant enthusiast, if you have a thick pocket and really care that much for wilton branded-imported bakeware, go for this shop.
For cheaper options, go to titan

It was like shopping in a minimart, they even have a mini shopping cart. Check out the website to see whether they have what you are looking for.
for fondant enthusiast, they have good selection of cheap fondant tools, price comparison with wilton tools is around 50-70% cheaper, quality is okayish but you have to ask for the price because they dont label it (no worries, no messing around or haggling, just get a bunch of stuff you want and they will check the prices with the cashier)
anyone looking for chic cupcake tower (plastic-around Rp50.000) go there, now!
