Save Time & Labor With These Flavor Ideas For Your Baked Goods

Thinking outside the box helps you stand out from the crowd. Think more layered flavors and mash ups for success such as a banana cake with salted caramel frosting dipped in potato chips, or a vanilla cake topped with Buttered Popcorn frosting. For more surprising flavor combinations, here’s a good starting point for exploration.

Go Globally Inspired

Trending ethnic ideas include Chinese (Jianbing) breakfast crepes for folding in sweet or savory ingredients, Dosa (Indian crepes) and Dalgona (Korean candy) toppings for desserts, breads and coffees. Or, go crazy with one of the hottest trends created by food trucks, Korean Corn Dogs. These can be filled with cheeses and sweet or savory ingredients. Then breaded in a sweet flour and rolled in outlandish cereals or drizzled with chocolate and caramel, it’s your choice!

Mini Desserts

The BIG idea in mini desserts is that they are poppable, driveable, toppable, and drizzable (we know these are made-up words, but you might use them to describe these little flavor bombs). They can double as a snack and a dessert across multiple dayparts and are irresistible by consumers.
