Nothing beats a long summer lunch in the garden – delicious salads and meats, chilled white wine and of course a centre piece dessert such as a tart filled with fresh fruit. Not many consumers have the time, skills or inclination these days to create such a delicious meal finisher from scratch, so this time of year is an ideal time for bakers to offer a range of exciting summer patisserie – with some help from Dawn Foods of course!
Dawn Foods Pruvé range of premium, ambient and ready to use sweet pastry carriers, savoury pastry cases and choux pastry products are the perfect base to team with our range of frostings (including our NEW limited edition flavours Lemon & Lime and Coconut, both with fruit pieces), icings, fruit fillings, crème fillings and chocolate decorations to create deliciously tempting products. Consumers buy with their eyes so something visually stunning will really entice them to purchase.
Newer additions to the Sweet Pastry range are a Twist, a Canoli, a mini Crystal Shell, a large (215mm) Half Moon Shell and a 90mm Flower Shell. Made with delicious flaky pastry that melts in the mouth, the products are topped with Sugar Nibs to give visual appeal as well as added crunch. The Twist and Canoli can be filled with fresh cream for classic patisserie, and so too can the Creamhorn and mini Creamhorn stocked within the pastry range.
For stunning desserts with a subtle fruit flavour and hue, try adding some of our newly formulated all natural flavour Fonds to the cream. You will create a set mousse in minutes which can be used to layer, mould and pour into serving dishes for striking summer time sweet creations suitable for the most elaborate of patisserie. The fonds are available in 18 different authentic flavours, from lemon and strawberry to peach & passion fruit, white chocolate and today’s on-trend flavour, ruby orange.
A classic fruit tart or cheesecake makes a refreshingly light end to a meal. Dawn’s Delifruit Fruit Filling range contains visible pieces of real fruit bursting with flavour. Available in popular flavours including blueberry, raspberry, lemon, strawberry, red cherry and fruits of the forest they allow bakers to create some fresh tasting and tempting treats. Choose one of our many Pruvé tartlets, such as a mini fluted, straight French or straight square style, fill with fruit filling and top with fresh fruit, or you can use the fruit filling as a coulis for a summer pudding or as a topping for cheesecakes.
The opportunities are endless!
