Bakers’ Blend Issue 4 out now!
Well the lovely weather earlier in the year certainly lulled us into a false sense of security before unleashing storm Gareth onto us last month. Hopefully we are over the worst and April will be glorious!
A late Easter this year means that there is still time to stock up on ingredients for the celebrations; head on over to the WH offers pages for special deals on chocolate mini eggs and new bake resistant toffee pieces, sure to satisfy the sweetest tooth.
Of course, Easter wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate and in Dan’s guide to new products you can find out about the launch of a fantastic new chocolate by Callebaut which contains only 1% added sugar. This really could be a time to have your cake and eat it!
As the popularity of vegan products increases, the need for a suitable, high quality alternative becomes greater. Baker’s Friend, a butter substitute suitable for vegans is one of these products and is available at a special price during April.
This month Dawn Foods have two great deals with discounts on both flavoured frostings and a range of muffin and cake bases and, if you haven’t already entered, there is still a chance to win a trip to Amsterdam in their online competition.
Macphie also have 10% off their range of Sensations cake mixes which come in a variety of flavours including apple and cinnamon, chocolate orange or strawberries and cream.
Craigmillar also have a fantastic offer with £5 of their Crembel strawberry or lemon fudge icing. Custard filled confectionery is always popular and Zeelandia are offering some fantastic savings on their Roma Cold custard range.
The wedding season will soon be upon us and Renshaw have a range of different sugar pastes to finish a cake for any occasion, plus their ready to roll icing is available in a fantastic array of colours.
For those who love a savoury treat Wrights have introduced Chicken Tikka to their pasty range which also includes the classic corned beef and potato, currently featuring in our WH offers section along with a great deal on Pukka catering sausages.
With the help of industry experts, we have a new feature entitled Monthly Insight which looks at a different issue within the food industry each month. April focuses the spotlight on Food to Go with some useful tips on how to succeed in this expanding market.
As we mentioned last month, April sees the return of our popular social media competition ‘Spot the Truck’. Keep an eye out online and identify the location of our delivery vehicles to be in with a chance of winning £100 of Belgian chocolate goodies, courtesy of Callebaut.
Since 1991 National Doughnut Week, which this year takes place from 11th – 18th May, has raised £392,655 for The Children’s Trust and, in support of this year’s fundraising event, we will donate £2 from every case of Filly doughnuts ordered from now until 18th May to this worthwhile cause.
As always, thank you for your support and have a great Easter!
