One of my industry magazines arrived today and I ran across an ad, titled REDUCE CAKE STALING.

The product "is the latest innovation" and will keep "cakes soft, moist and resilient for 60 days." It also inhibits mold growth.

Yum.

Like Twinkies - those things last forever!

That couldn't be any more disgusting! Let's hope that trend doesn't catch on.

Do they list customer testimonials? I'd post that as public service for where NOT to buy a cake.

Nah, no testimonials. It's a trade magazine though, so I'd expect ginormous commercial bakeries or commisaries to buy it. But if you're ever in your local grocery store and notice a "use by date" that's way in the future . . . mystery solved.

Good info to have when people say things like "I can get a cake at Target for $xxx". My usual answer on that is, "well, then, you should."

I guess it's no different to the people on here that state they freeze cakes for 2-3 months for events or tastings. icon_confused.gif

Sorry to disagree with you, but i think its a big difference in a cake that is frozen or one thats sitting on a shelf for 60 day

Yeah, peg's right. There's a tremendous difference in freezing to preserve a cake and adding chemicals to preserve a cake that's sitting on the shelf. BIG difference.

When I had my shop & got those type of magazines I often saw ads for such ingredients.....it's nothing new - except maybe desinged for cake instead of pastries.

Wow....decrease cakes from going stale??? Preserve them chemically??? I can see where this would be a big market for some cheap people who prefer to buy from large markets instead of small bakeries with fresh cakes. It would save them the cost of being embalmed in the future!

Fruitcakes last forever. Maybe it's not chemicals but booze? icon_smile.gif

That WOULD be "yum".

Agreed. Freezing, booze both work as preservatives. I'm good with those.
