Hello Everyone!!! i just graduated from ICC New York in January and had to hurry back to my country, sadly did not get the chance to do my desired internship.
Now i have been given an opportunity to start up a high end cake shop (totally didn't see it happening so soon) which is cool, but i can't find some of the recipes/materials i need in the country.
i know the major equipments i need to startup, but i don't know what brand is best and long lasting and if i should choose gas or electric oven.
having my own business has always been my dream, but honestly in this situation i don't know where to start and the deadline for the cake shop to be is the first week of April.
Now this are my questions:
1. where do i get a reputable wholesale cake product supplier ( if that makes any sense) for my ingredients like chocolate, gelatin sheets, gel paste etc
2. which is the best oven to use in a professional kitchen, gas or electric?
3. if electric, which brand is most suited or advisable ( the power outlet here is a 3 pin outlet, similar to UK if i can remember)?
4. which is more cost efficient, shipping in my fondant or making it?
any advice you can throw my way will be well absorbed, i need all the insights not to fall too hard on my face.
Thank you so MUCH!!!!
