Best Cake Frosting

Best cake Frosting Post Featured Image

What is the best cake frosting or icing?

As a baking supply store, we often receive these questions from our customers of what is the best cake frosting? And our response is would depend on what usage or preference the customer wants. The below guidelines will help you decide which cake frosting or icing suits your cake in certain circumstances.

  1. Type of base or cake
  2. Time of cake exposure
  3. The weather or temperature cake going to be display and store
  4. Cake involves long travel

Type of base or cake

Yes, the base or cake type really matters. For sponge or chiffon cake, the liquid non-dairy whipping cream or soft-boiled icing is the best match. Complementing a light and creamy texture but the downside is it’s not stable. For a pound and moist cake, chocolate ganache, buttercream, or fondant (sometimes called marshmallow icing) can be used. These cake frostings complement the buttery and rich flavor of moist and pound cake.

Time of cake exposure

On simple occasions that require immediate consumptions, liquid non-dairy whipping cream or soft-boiled icing are recommended. For wedding or grand occasions, chocolate ganache, buttercream, or fondant can go a long run.

Temperature cake exposure

The venue’s temperature affects the cake’s frosting behavior. Cakes should avoid direct sunlight and heat. For the hot with humid locations, the fondant icing tends to melt down. Whipping cream, boiled icing, ganache, fondant, or buttercream are the best cooler locations.

Travel of cake

Transportation of cake matters. For long-distance travel, fondant and ganache are great fits because of stability. Soft-boiled icing, whipping cream, or buttercream is for short-distance. Handling cake properly during the transportation is a must.

Baking Business Ideas

Baking Business Ideas

Thinking how to start a Baking Business?

Thinking about how to start any business or specifically how to start a baking business? Yes, then you’re on the right page to have those baking business ideas. We’ve been there! And we know how exactly frustrating, hard, and overwhelming it was starting up a baking business. The below are free baking business ideas and tips that will help you.

  1. Name
  2. Location
  3. Budget and Equipment
  4. Ingredients
  5. Niche Product
  6. Market

Baking Business Name

The first important baking business idea is the business name. Some will not take the naming or name of a business seriously but a catchy, simple, and unique business name must be done correctly right from the start. You can use a free business name generator app and websites such as TRUic LLC and Business Name Generator.

Baking Business Location

The second important baking business idea is choosing your business location. The location where to do the baking should be taken into consideration. Should you be getting another area to do the baking or just doing it at home or have a baking store in a different location? If you’re just starting up doing the baking at home is highly suggested in this way you can start building up your market, customer feedback, and your confidence. If you have already good loyal customers, great feedback, confidence, and a market then it is suggested for you to have a very accessible physical store location where your customer can easily visit your display, products, and see your services gathering more customers and more presence but you might take into part the community with less competition.

Baking Business Budget and Equipment

The third important baking business idea is knowing the budget. An advantage of the baking business is that you don’t need big capital money, to begin with. For a wise small start-up, a small gas oven, hand-held mixer, 1-2 baking pans, and small packaging of baking ingredients would really do. And that small baking business start-up can cost to 10,000 to 12,000 pesos only. If orders rushing in your door already then you will need to do some upgrades like a high capacity oven, mixer, and multiple baking pans which will cost an additional 30,000 to 50,000 pesos.

Baking Business Ingredients

The fourth important baking business idea is knowing where to buy ingredients. Choose a baking supply store that is near your area this is to save time and to find convenience with logistics. Know a way to directly chat with the owner or ask for a special price for volume or bulk orders. Baking supply store owners can give discounts once agreed to purchase a bulk order from their store this way to have a win-win business. Desserts Corner Online Baking Supply Store has Facebook and Instagram pages to communicate straight to the owner. They are located in Consolacion Cebu serving nationwide with e-commerce on Lazada and Shopee.

Baking Business Niche Products

The fifth important baking business idea is mastering your edge or special product. One unique yet delicious product is enough to get a loyal customer spreading in word of a mouth. Whether it could be cake, brownies, or cookies as long it is your main focus and unique at an affordable price then you will be rocking your way to the top of the market.

Baking Business Market

The last important baking business idea is where to market and find your market. The traditional and expensive ways to market such as television, radio, leaflets, and announcement are still effective yet costly especially when you are starting up. Now in the digital era, an advantage in social media presence and marketing can help you a lot to take control of your game. Create a business account on these social media platforms for free Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many more. And utilize their business marketing offer at affordable prices.

Lastly, having a good business attitude is a very important requirement to top it all. A good lesson and a teacher is experience. Being positive, patient, and persistent will make your way through finding solutions to every problem and risk that might arise.
