Workshop: Cake Technology

ZDS offers a theoretical and practical course in its facilities on cake manufacturing technology. During this practical seminar the participants will be given theoretical information about ingredients, processes and machinery.

The seminar will be run as a workshop.

We will run trials on pilot plant equipment using various recipes, ingredients and manufacturing methods, evaluation the impact of these on the final product.

Secondly we will study the influence of ingredients such as different oils and fats, inclusions, flours and fibres and what impact they have on the production parameters and the finished cakes.
A special section will also be dedicated to packaging and preservation.

This course is intended for:

Food technologists from the bakery industry and bakery assistants, who are at the beginning of their career in the industry, or who need further training in the field of manufacturing.

Technical service and support staff from the raw material industries.

Members of the product development from the bakery industry, who require a technical introduction to this part of their industry.
