To help you shop for your baking and decorating supplies, here is a brief guide on what you will want to purchase from a wholesale candy and cake supply. This should help get you started as you begin shopping for your business.
Cake Baking Ingredients
This should be pretty straightforward for those already familiar with baking in a professional setting. A helpful candy and cake supply should have everything you need to bake any sort of cake or cupcake you might need. This includes not only the most basic raw ingredients like flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, etc. but also some more convenient baking ingredients like pre-measured baking mixes to make the process faster and easier on a regular basis.
It is good to keep a fair selection of flexible cake decorating supplies on hand that allow you to decorate in lots of different ways. When shopping for cake and candy supplies, make sure that you feel confident with the decorating supplies you choose so that you will be able to decorate a wide range of occasions. At the very least you will want buttercreams, piping gels, sprinkles, and fondants in assorted colors.
Baking With Candy
Candy products can make a great contribution to the baking process since it allows you to add a lot of flavor in one bite. You can add some chopped candy bits to your cupcakes to change up the cake's entire flavor. Some candies will also give a change of texture to the cake so that it has a nice crunch to it. How you choose to use your candies in the baking process is up to you, but you will want to find a candy and cake supply that has a good amount of options for you. Stover & Company offers lots of candy pieces to choose from and even hosts a wide selection of candy with various flavored fillings.
Decorating With Candy
The candy options you will want for decorating purposes are not too different from the ones you will use to bake. You might even want to combine the two to have a candy mixed into the batter and sprinkled on top for decoration and flavor. You may also want to use caramel or melted candy wafers to create decorative drizzles on your baked goods for color and taste. Just remember when looking for supplies to think of what you plan on using these products for.
Make Your Own Candy
If you are the most interested in making your own candy creations and just need the right ingredients to make that happen, then we have just what you need right here. You can make some very simple candies with compound chocolate or candy melt wafers. These are easy to work with since you only need to melt them down before working with them in their liquid form. You can then recast these into molds to create the shapes you want to use as cake or cupcake toppers.
You can also use some more basic ingredients to create your own hard candy. Heat up some water, sugar, and possibly corn syrup with some added color and flavorings to create the base for your hard candy. Then pour that onto a sheet tray to cool down and harden. Even with a limited experience in making candy, you can still create some beautiful, delicious treats to enjoy alone or with other baked goods as decoration.
