Rise to the Challenge: Elevate Patisserie Sales in Summer with Mango Cake Innovations

26 Jan 2024

Adapting to Seasonal Dynamics in Patisserie

In the dynamic world of patisserie, seasonal shifts play an important role in shaping the sales landscape. While colder seasons are known to increase the demand for comforting patisserie creations, the summer months often present a challenge. Customers usually crave lighter, more refreshing treats. Discover the complexities of the summer season and explore strategic solutions to compensate the summer dip in patisserie sales through innovation.

Navigating the Unique Challenge of Summer

It is no secret that the warmer months of summer can present a set of challenges for patisserie, as the preference for traditional indulgences such as rich cakes and elaborate pastries tends to decrease when the temperatures rise. Customers prefer lighter, more hydrating options, such as ice cream, as they strive to beat the summer heat. Unfortunately, to meet these needs, there is often a high investment required as not all bakeries and pâtissiers own the necessary equipment or storage space. Yet, it is essential to regard this seasonal transformation as an opportunity for creative reinventions.

Reinvent the classic Mango Cake

Mango cake, a Philippine classic that offers the perfect opportunity for a summertime reinvention.

The mango cake is an emblematic dessert from the Philippines and has its origins in the late 19th century. The classic Mango cake is made with the “Manila mango” or “Philippine mango”, which is a variety of mango that is particularly sweet. Mangoes of this variety are golden yellow when ripe and their buttery flesh is not fibrous. 

Created with Tegral Sponge, Classic Mango, Cremyvit Classic and Ambiante, we have been able to recreate this classic whilst preserving it’s great taste. 

An innovative solution in a creative reinvention
