4.2 Present/display gateaux, tortes and cakes to enterprise standards using appropriate service equipment

Present cakes, gateaux and tortes

Displaying cakes is a great way to increase sales. The two most common ways to display cakes are as follows:

A well presented display increases eye appeal and may persuade costumers to order a slice or buy a whole cake when they see it.

It is important to keep your cakes seasonal as rich chocolate and cream cakes will sell well in winter but in summer light cakes with fresh fruits sell better.

When displaying cakes for any situation it is important to keep everything clean, neat and tidy.

When you are displaying a cake you don’t want to leave it in the display if 1/3 of the cake is left and crumbs are lying around the plate.

Appropriate silver cake servers can also be used to make an impression on the customer.

To be carried away, the cake need to be rested on a cake board slightly larger than the actual cake.

A lace doyley placed under the cake adds to the visual pleasure but make sure the cake is cut before hand as not to damage the doyley.
