The highly successful premiere of the congress CAKE TEC in 2012 has led us feel compelled to organize the event with the focus on "cake" again at ZDS, in Solingen. What has changed in recent years on the international cake market? Which specific markets and trends are currently there and what can be expected in the future? Which technologies are available?

One of the highlights will definitely be an extensive part about process technology. Alternative whipping systems, Steam Baking, Electrostatically coating of cakes, Ultrasonic- and water cutting technology as well as  the biggest cake production in the world will be on this year's agenda.

The conference program will be completed by an international product exhibition as well as by practical demonstrations. The congress will provide sufficient opportunities for communication amongst participants, speakers and members of the advisory committee of the event.

Natural Baking: Delicate Dough free from Yeast and Additives, Thomas Lepold, C+I Consult

Trends like “free from…” or “without any additives” are increasingly important sales messages. Just a few decades ago, it was most common to make use of the “magic kit” of ingredients and additives to obtain easily machine-processible dough and masses or achieve specific consumption properties. By now, this is a no-go.

This article will reveal the secret of achieving aromatic and easily machine-processible delicate dough free from yeast or additives. Food production engineer Thomas Lepold is a specialist in this sector and has been well-known in the baking and food industry for more than 30 years. He has committed himself to baking with these options for nearly 10 years. In this context, we make use of various sponge systems, particularly the BackNatur ferment. This innovative product facilitates the formation of aromatic taste-producing substances in all kinds of wheat-based sponges, which provide the baked goods with a character comparable to the one of perfectly long-resting baked goods. For this purpose, the product deploys the micro-organisms in sponge-starter BackNatur ferment. As a result, baker’s yeast can be spared completely.

The micro-nutrients, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals contained by the flour are transformed to aromatic substances and flavoring precursors in the sponge, which provide the baked goods with a unique basic flavor. The aroma nuances formed are for the most part of fruity-floral nature and match perfectly with all kinds of wheat pastry such as light delicate dough, common bread buns and kaiser or soft rolls. Best results are in particular achieved in combination with butter.

Additive-free baking deploys exclusively natural ingredients and does not use any additives or chemicals. In this context, BackNatur contributes its long-standing expertise in fermentation. All of it is "clean label". The lecture provides detailed information on how to achieve the dough properties required.

Shuffle-Mix: Alternative aeration system for Cakes, by Erik Kamphuis

Soft and light cakes are getting more and more popular. It is used for layer cakes but also for cup-cakes or chiffon-cakes. Light cakes can be made using baking powder or by aerating the batter before baking. Shufflemix delivered many aeration installation for aerating cake batter.

Product aeration is traditionally a time-consuming process. The product is aerated in a batch mixer and manually transferred to a depositor. This batch-wise production results in an inconsistent aeration quality that can vary from batch to batch. The Shufflemixer will increase your productivity and deliver consistent product quality, thanks to the continuous aerator which is designed to achieve higher production rates per hour.

The Shufflemixer aerating technology is based on the age-old idea of churning milk where a perforated disc on a stick is moved up and down in a churn, to aerate the liquid. Shuffle-Mix re-developed the ancient system using the latest 21st century production technologies. By combining multiple discs in a closed housing with a controlled up and down movement, the fluid is aerated. This patented way of aerating is far more efficient than any traditional pinhead aerator. In the Shufflemixers, this modern aerating technology is brought into production.

Shuffle Mix will present the aeration technology and will show how the Shufflemixer can fit in your production line to enhance the productivity with a consistent high quality.

The lecture on CAKE TEC 2014 will be held by Erik Kamphuis, Commercial Director Shuffle Mix B.V.
