Where We Are Going Today: Jeddah’s Cake Decoration Center

  • For the biggest varieties of baking goods in the city for individual bakers

Baking is an ever-expanding pastime. Bakers want to keep exploring and it can be quite frustrating when you can’t find the tools to make your chosen item. The Cake Decoration Center (CDC) on Hira Street, Jeddah vows that no baker will have to face such frustration.

They provide one of the biggest varieties of baking goods in the city for individual bakers, from all shapes and sizes of baking tins to all sizes of spatulas. You can also find molds in silicon or tins to make other types of desserts such as chocolates.

CDC does not just sell tools, they also sell high-quality ingredients such as chocolate chips, ready-made fondants and frostings, gel food colors and different flavored fillings for cakes. Such ingredients are rare finds in Jeddah.

Bakers’ visits to CDC make them feel like there is nothing that can come between them and that dessert they want to try but can’t because of a lack of tools.

Saudi specialist teams to fight locust invasion

RIYADH: The Saudi Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has deployed 40 field teams to fight desert locusts.

The teams will operate south of Riyadh (Wadi Al-Dawasir, Al-Sulayyil, and Al-Aflaj), southeast of Asir (Ahad Rafidah, Sarat Abidah, Wadi bin Hashbal, Tathleeth, Bisha, Tareeb, and Al-Khanqah, and their affiliated centers), Najran’s governorates and eastern desert, and the eastern Taif highlands in the Makkah region.

The ministry said that the Locust Control and Migratory Pest Center is implementing efforts to fight the locust problem in targeted areas, where the extent of the risk has been assessed.

Teams are specially equipped to fight the locust invasion, which began as an outbreak in Yemen, Oman and the Empty Quarter.

A total of 24 pest control teams, nine exploration teams, five supervision and monitoring teams and two maintenance teams have been formed to counter the threat.

Teams will be supplied with over 15,000 liters of pesticides as well as safety tools, spare parts, oil, and fuel as logistical support to aid the operation. SPA Riyadh

Measures aim to reduce breeding in the regions and meet the threat of swarms crossing from Oman and Yemen.

Abnormal rainfall in the south of the Arabian Peninsula has coincided with the summer migration of the locust swarms from East Africa toward southwest Asia (India and Pakistan), the ministry said.
