Baking Supplies in Phnom Penh

I LOVE baking.

I make my own breads, pastries and cakes. In fact, from an enjoyable pastime, I managed to make baking now into something that keeps me busy and an income earner. Yes, I have my own baked goodies business, but I’ll talk about that in a separate post. This will be all about where to find your baking supplies in Phnom Penh.

When we moved here almost 8 years ago, I gave up baking for a couple of years coz I found it hard to source baking supplies in Phnom Penh. But I think once you are a ‘baker’ you’d always be one. There are lots of treats that are not easily available here (or if they are, they can be too expensive for me), so baking at home made sense.

It’s still not easy to find complete baking supplies here, one reason maybe coz homebaking is quite new here and most Khmers I know are not very keen on it (yet!). But with a little lookaround I discovered that yes! there are basic stuff available. So I’m listing out shops and suppliers I have found to help out those on the lookout for baking supplies. These are not complete, so if you know any place selling baking tools and equipment in Phnom Penh not listed here, please do drop a comment, it might be a big help to us oven mitt lovers.

  • Bayon Supermarket – Decent stock of baking ingredients like baking chocolates (compound). While not the best, its okay quality and its affordable. The kitchenware shop upstairs is a must-visit. Plenty of cake tins, whisks, liners etc. Bayon is located atΒ No. 33-34, George Dimitrov (St. 114), Phnom Penh
  • Thai Huot – great baking source, lots of baking ingredients available. They also stock good quality baking chocolates, small packs of toppings like chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts. It’s also one of the better places to source dairy, and their butter and cheese selection is good. If you are also on the lookout for cake and pizza boxes, they have it available. They have branches in Monivong, BKK1 (St 63), and Tuol Kork.
  • Aeon Supermarket – at first I was not particularly impressed with Aeon’s baking section but they continue to add stuff to their inventory. They also have pans imported from Malaysia. And just recently, I found Wilton icing coloring there and very cute cupcake liners. So it’s worth a visit.
  • One & One Market – this is a small grocery but I find items here cheaper,especially dairy. If you are in Beoung Tompun/Tuol Tompong area this store is worth checking out. They also have a good wine selection (a must while baking, you know, while waiting for the cheesecake to chill..Β Hahaha). Located along St. 271 across Phnom Penh Sports Club
  • Super Duper – this 24 hr supermarket stocks lots of imported items. I saw Crisco here. Ha! And frozen phyllo pastry. They also have a nice stock of disposable party supplies like paper plates, aluminum pans and I once got a 6-hole cast aluminum muffin pan here for less than $2.
Ahhoo Megastore Phnom Penh
Kitchenware Paradise @ Ahhoo Megastore Phnom Penh
  • Ahhoo Megastore – this shop is like home/kitchen ware wonderland. A surprising find really when I thought it just carried small electronics. If you’re crazy about mugs, this shop is worth a visit. They have about 3 aisle all just mugs. But I’m including it here as one source of baking equipment coz they have inexpensive inventory of baking pans and baking glassware. Also small items like measuring spoons, cups, steamers etc etc. **Update** Old Ahoo is now closed but a similar store called JJ Megacorp have the same inventory. Its located along Monivong Blvd corner Kampuchea Krom.
Baking Supplies Phnom Penh
Baking Supplies Shop @ Sand Bakery
  • Sand BakeryΒ – my absolute favorite for baking supplies. They have mostly baking stuff from Thailand. My go-to place for boxes of assorted sizes and cute prints. If you’re on the lookout for packaging, silicon bakeware, piping tips, practically everything you might need for basic home baking, this must be your first stop. If you don’t find what you need, they can also source items for you and I find the service extremely good. Sand is located near Hotel Intercon, St. 402. Check out their FB Page.
Baking Supplies Phnom Penh
Kawaii baking liners & molds @Daiso AEON
  • Japanese 1.90$ shops – cute items. I’m crazy about colorful measuring spoons, cookie cutters, even kawaii baking paper. I even found good loaf pans there. (Daiso in AEON, MI-A in Aeon and all over the city)
  • Local markets – if you can speak Khmer (or have a friend who does), the local markets can yield a lot of baking finds, so don’t write them off completely. It was in a market that I found my supplier for high quality flours from Vietnam and Thailand, buy wholesale and you get it a lot cheaper.
  • LSH Cambodia – this is a wholesaler. Worth checking if you are looking to buy for restaurant or bakery.
Baking Equipment Phnom Penh
Baking Tools & Pans @Guang Hong
  • Guang Hong Kitchen Equipment – all sorts of stainless steel equipment and restaurant supplies can be found here. I bought a lot of pans, piping tips, sheets here. They also sell commercial ovens, refrigeration, display cabinets, customized stainless steel cabinets and all sorts of equipment for restaurants and bakeries. Guang Hong Kitchen is located along Mao Tse Tung near Chinese Embassy. There are also other similar shops along Mao Tse Tung, between Wat Tuol Tompong and Stop Bokor.
  • KSLM – another one stop shop for your baking, kitchen and restaurant equipment. Visit their website – KSLM Investment.

Online Sellers: (I discovered these online FB sellers. Products are usually updated on their page regularly. Most offer free delivery within the city for a certain purchase amount) **updated July 21, 2017

  • Khmer Caker – retailer and wholesale of non-dairy whipping cream. They also supply major supermarkets but I compared the prices, buying direct and in bulk from them is so much cheaper. They also have some pre-made toppings and offers basic cake decorating courses. Owner/page admin is prompt in answering messages and very conversant in English.
  • The Cake Supply Shop – this shop carries lots of cake decorating supplies at affordable prices. They offer free delivery for purchases worth $30 above. Owner/page admin takes a few hours to reply on messages but is very friendly and accommodating.
  • Khmer Bakery Supply – online seller with a physical store located in Borey Penh Huot, along National Highway 1. Check their FB page for items they carry.

This post by Move to Cambodia about Best Supermarkets in Phnom Penh is worth checking out too. If I find more places worth checking out, I’ll be updating this regularly.

    1. Im so glad this could help. Ive updated the resource and added KSLM, its also a really good supplier for baking needs. πŸ™‚ Happy Baking!

  2. Dear Lui-in penh,

    Thank you so much for sharing your information. you are like heaven send. I have a class-mate ( a Good Shepherd Nun) who has just set up a center for caring of destitute children( Fountain of Life Center) in Sihanoukville.The children are from homes of prostitutes and bar girls etc/) I am going there in End Aprill 22 April to 3 May to help them set up a small kitchen to make homebakes to sell as fund raising. This will also later impart skills to the older kids so that they can earn a decent income instead of joining their parents in sex trade.

    I am from Petaling Jaya Malaysia. I do not want to unnecessary carry alot of baggage if I can source in Phnom Phen. So your info has been extremely helpful.

    Thank you and God bless you in your homebake biz

  3. This is brilliant! I’ve been searching for piping tips but I’ve had no idea where to even start looking. Hopefully I’ll find some next week πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Jess, check out Sand Bakery. They have loads of inexpensive piping tips and sets. Even the Russian Flower piping tips are available per piece. πŸ™‚

  4. Hi ! I am extremely grateful to you for posting this, even though m a Cambodian myself but I find it really hard to find all these equipments locally and I am so glad that I found this blog. Thank you for helping me and many others on our hunt for baking supplies like theseπŸ‘πŸ»β˜ΊοΈ

      1. Hi again πŸ˜‰ would you mind telling where I can get a cake board and a parchment paper here in Phnom Penh? Hope you can help me out, would really appreciate it it a lot.

        Thank you πŸ™‚

        1. Hi Tey, for cake boards you can can check Sand Bakery, they sell retail and have quite a good size selection. The prints tho are the cute, pink and girly variety. You can also check Khmer Caker (on Facebook) they also sell cake boards.

          As for parchment/baking paper. They have it in Sand Bakery (so so quality) but you can also check Thai Huot (upstairs) they have good variety. Aeon also have it sometimes but they often run out (i think people hoard it haha)

    1. hi Tey, Im not really sure. But you can check Sand Bakery (you can send them a message on Facebook too) if they have it. Last time I saw a cupcake tier stand there but not sure about cake stand. They can also order it for you. You may also check KSLM they have these kinds of things.

  5. Hi Lui,
    I am a Singaporean doctor who is also thinking of getting some of the girls in a boarding school run by the Catholic Church in Battambang to take up baking to provide some additional income.
    Are the guidelines for sale of cakes to neighbouring hotels or cafes etc very strict?
    Could I seek your advice – for a basic setup with a commercial oven and baking items ,how much does it roughly cost ? Or perhaps if you could kindly give me a gauge based on your own baking experience.
    Do you think it’s a viable project to consider?

    1. Hi, commercial ovens can be price heavy though baking items are starting to be more affordable. Expect to pay upwards of $500 for just an oven. I think there is a market for baked goods though competition can be tough too I think its just a matter of picking up a niche. πŸ™‚ Best of luck.

  6. Thank you so very much Lui! And such a speedy reply!πŸ˜„
    Your blog has been of tremendous help .
    May I trouble you to ask one more question?
    I’m not sure if you know whether it’s cheaper to buy baking stuff from Singapore and bring over?

    1. I think the oven and mixers are the only items you will find really pricey here. The rest of the baking stuff you can source here. I would suggest checking out Sand Bakery on Facebook. They are very responsive to queries and you can ask them about prices and availability. I also often ask them to source for me (Bangkok) and I find the prices very good. Also Guang Hong, they have a lot of restaurant and baking equipment even commercial oven and frequently hold sales promotions, you may also ask them about prices for comparison.
      But then again, if you have lots of room in your luggage, why not bring some quality items πŸ™‚ thanks for reading my blog. You may also email me admin@luiinpenh.com
