Wedding Fever

As we are nearing the beginning of wedding season, bakeries are preparing for the flood of wedding cake orders they will receive.  Creating one of these masterpieces is no easy task.  They bake hundreds of cakes and utilize their icing and fondant melters to build a crucial piece of the wedding ceremony.

There are a variety of styles wedding cakes are made in from tradition white cakes to extravagant, multi-tiered cakes to decorations specific to the couple’s interests.  Fondant is revolutionary for this industry and allows bakers to easily design these elaborate wedding cakes.  The fondant offers a clean, manicured look for the cake.  It is flexible and easy to shape into beautiful flowers and other accents on the cake.

A bride and groom’s wedding cake is designed to signify one of the most important events of their life.  It is a symbol of the couple’s love, trust and commitment to one another, and becomes especially important for the cake cutting ceremony.  This ceremony in which the couple feeds each other the cake is the first thing the couple does together to celebrate their union.  Whether your wedding cake is elaborately designed or sweet and simple, ensure that it is the symbol of your union you’ve always imagined.

Essential Baking Equipment: Industrial-Sized

Baking machinery doesn’t change when you move from your home kitchen to a bakery, it just becomes larger. Now instead of baking for family and friends, you are baking for the entire neighborhood. When buying baking equipment for your start-up bakery, keep these essentials in mind:

  • Lifting and Pouring Bowls & Containers

Instead of your hands, you must now rely on lifting assistance from machinery because your batter now weighs hundreds of pounds.

  • Cooling Tables

Aluminum foil doesn’t cut it anymore. You need your cookies to cool quickly so you can serve the enormous crowd behind your bakery counter.

  • Pie Filling Shell Depositor

Baking a pie is a thing of the past. Baking a few dozen is what you will have to do to keep up with the demand. This depositing pump can suck the pie filling directly from a mixing bowl for precision, accuracy and efficiency.

  • Icing Tanks

Make large batches of icing or fondant to allow you to have the product when you need it, still warm and fresh.

For all of your essential baking equipment needs for your new shop, keep Savage Bros. Co. in mind. Since 1855, we have supplied baking machinery to bakers throughout the Midwest and beyond.

Icing & Fondant Melters and Warmers

In the bakery, melting chocolate, icing and fondant is a daily task. Make it easier on yourself by having melting equipment that is compatible with all three baking materials. Savage Bros. Co. manufactures a chocolate melter configured for bakery icings and fondants. This melting equipment is a powerhouse bakery machine. It’s capable of becoming an icing melter because of the higher wattage heaters with higher upper temperature limits, unlike most chocolate melters. Other fondant melters can’t reach the high temperatures to make it pliable in a time efficient manner. Look no further for icing warmers because it will be difficult to match Savage Bros. Co. versatility and compatibility.

The melter/warmer is made completely of stainless steel. The bottom drive agitator allows for full top access and at 12 RPMs, variable speed is available as an option. With water-friendly operator controls the fondant warmer is easily cleaned. Wash-down heavy duty transmission and a drive motor also assist in the cleaning process. The entire melting and warming process is simple with Savage Bros. Co. icing and fondant melters and warmers.

Begin your Baking Venture with Commercial Baking Equipment by Savage Bros.

Starting your own business is a whirlwind of excitement and stressful situations. All of us at Savage Bros. Co., a bakery equipment manufacturer, want you to be prepared for your opening day with the proper industrial baking equipment. Using consumer sized mixing bowls is a thing of the past because nothing is small about your operation. The following is a list of the three main pieces of commercial baking equipment you should have at your bakery:
• Lifting and Pouring Bowls & Containers
• Icing and Fondant Melters
• Industrial Mixers

If you do not have commercial bakery equipment, your bakery will not be able to keep up with large orders. Your time will be used inefficiently as you are constantly making little batches to fill several orders of 100 or more cookies. By using industrial baking equipment you will not sacrifice quality, but if you don’t use large capacity equipment you will sacrifice quantity.
