The Rise of BAKING In The Food Industry

Welcome to the first installment of the Dorsey Dish, where we’ll feed your appetite for all-things food-related each month (as part of the Dorsey Schools blog).  This month, we’re talking about the wonderful world of BAKING and it’s rise in popularity!  We’d love to hear from you – what’s your favorite thing to bake?  Do you have a favorite recipe?  Share it with us below!

The Rise of BAKING In The Food Industry

“Baking” is continually growing into the ultimate buzzword of the food industry. The combination of creativity and imagination in the science of baking is continually progressing and new innovations seem to always be on the horizon. With TV shows like Save My Bakery, Ace of Cakes, Cupcake Wars and Cake Boss, baking is becoming more and more popular. Especially because it is spring, one rather easy and classic way to spruce up the creation of your baked goods is by adding fondant flowers.

Fondant gives cakes a smooth and elegant look, and it is used to cover many professional cakes. Fondant can be purchased premade, or you can go the extra mile and put in the effort to make a homemade fondant with any color of your choice. Fondant flowers can be the perfect way to accent any of your baked goods. They can be as simple as cupped blossom flowers or as intricate as ruffle flowers. Will you be baking any delicious treats this spring? Share us some new spring baking recipes in the comments below.
