Fun Cake Machine

How to produce the delicious fun cakes in a reliable and efficient way ?

Fun Cakes are baked in solid brass or cast iron moulds. Because of the solid metal moulds the heat capacity of the moulds is very high. Directly after depositing of the batter the baking process starts although the moulds have not reached the oven yet. First a rich piece of filling will be formed and placed on top of the batter. Before entering the oven the mould will be closed and turned completely one time to distribute the batter evenly over the mould. This is a very important step in the process and the only way to get an evenly colored cake product. After closing the mould will be turned one more time during the baking process. This is to ensure the filling remains in the center of the cake before the batter starts to set. In the oven the moulds are heated gradually and the temperature of the mould will increase about 20 deg. Celsius. The heat is distributed over the mould very gradually and evenly; this is important to keep in mind when designing the moulds. To generate the heat direct gas burners or electrical heaters are used. Finally after the oven the mould will be opened and the fun cakes can be de-moulded and cooled for packaging. Before the next cycle the mould will be cleaned and coated with a releasing agent.

Unique Features

Evenly colored cakes and perfectly centered filling

Because of the heat captured in the moulds the batter starts baking immediately after depositing. For this reason it is important that the batter and the filling are distributed evenly in the mould. To guarantee the best cake quality the mould will be turned during the baking process.

Very smooth surface and fine detailed product looks

The fun cake machine operates with closed metal moulds. During baking the moulds remain closed. Because of the leavening agent in the recipe, the batter will be pushed in every detail of the mould. In addition because of the gentle pressure, caused by this rising process, the surface of the fun cake will be very smooth.

Free floating moulds and flexible depositors positioning

On the industrial fun cake machines the moulds are not fixed to the machine. We did this to be able to adjust the baking time without affecting the line output. Another benefit is that our machines can run with any number of moulds for testing or to reduce output. The machine output is fixed for any recipe or baking time.

Changing baking moulds

The baking moulds are not fixed to the baking line. Bigger lines have an automatic mould eject and insert feature on the machine. Within 15 min a complete mould set can be changed. So changing the moulds is a very easy operation.

Flexibility

The industrial fun cake machine can run with any number of moulds. Sensors detect if the mould is in position and if the mould has the right temperature; if not is will pass without depositing. Because of this feature our fun cake machine can run with just a few moulds. Which is very convenient at start-up or, for cleaning of the moulds during production, or developing new products.
