The baking industry has embraced plant-based concepts, sustainable production, and health-centered innovation this year, and we expect to see more of that in the new year. As we move on from the tumultuous rollercoaster that is 2020 and look forward to a much-needed fresh start, let’s wrap it all up with a sneak peek at the bakery trends of 2021.
For too long, cupcakes were viewed as inferior cousins to cake. They were smaller, had less frosting and were mostly featured at preteen birthday parties. Fortunately, the wider population recently discovered the value of cupcakes. Of course, they are smaller, but they can pack a bigger taste, and traditional frosting can be substituted with a variety of other ingredients.
Bakeries attract consumers with their sweet-looking treats. These establishments offer a variety of snacks that chefs have slaved over for hours. In some cases, the desserts have been created by hand just a few hours before consumption. However, as any consumer can testify to, items that have been improperly mixed often get thrown away. There is nothing quite like finding clumps of uncooked and uneven dough in a cookie.
All customers love rolls, especially when they are hungry. A dough divider expedites the process of making rolls so that it is not as time-consuming and less frustrating. If you don't currently serve rolls at your restaurant, you may want to reconsider.
