Creating Craveable Desserts
Raise your dessert game with these handy tips for the spring season and beyond.
According to a Penn State University professor, our taste buds crave foods that have contrasting textures, which is a phenomenon called “dynamic sensory contrast.”
Dynamic Sensory Contrast
It’s why combining a product like a donut with creamy cookie dough filling, brownie batter, and nuts makes for an irresistible treat.
Rhonda Delaney at Lawrence Foods recommends creating different textures through crushed up foods. “Imperfect makes it perfect! Think broken chocolate, wafers, cookies, crumbs,” Delaney says.
Another craveable idea is to make colorful fondant cake decorations (like fun animals, owl faces or striped bow ties) ahead of time and stock in your front display case for customers to add to their favorite birthday and summer cakes.
These fondant decorations can sell from $1 to $7 apiece. This serves as another way the bakery helps customers create one-of-a-kind experiences.
