Cake improvers
Let the perfect cake sell itself

Dorothy is a range of cake improvers that produce cakes with a fresh and soft feeling, lasting from the day of baking until the very last piece. They also simplify baking by quickly distributing functional ingredients into the batter. The range helps you create softer, more indulgent products.

Cake improvers <br />Let the perfect cake sell itself

Softness


Keeps cakes soft and tender over time and gives a very fine eating quality. Retains moisture for a more appetising crumb, a freshly-baked quality, and a light and soft texture.

Softness

Freshness


Improves crumb texture and boosts freshness. Texture analysis shows that Dorothy has a substantial effect on crumb hardness. The influence on the finished product is evident directly after baking, as well as throughout shelf life.

Freshness

Easy mixing


A good result starts in the mixing bowl! Dorothy helps functional ingredients mix together quickly. The cake batter becomes very flexible and ingredients can be easily added or combined to customise the application.
