How to High-efficently Make Chocolates Personalised and Creative?

Views: 0     Author: Foodprinttech     Publish Time: 2022-08-08      Origin: Site

Chocolate cake decorations are highly sought after in the world of confectionery trade shows and order-placing meetings. The challenge for this industry is that chocolate cannot be printed directly, so intricate patterns can only be formed with laborious mixing and matching of chocolate colors, or through hand painting, such as cake doll eyebrows, eyes, clothing, etc.. In the confectionery industry, you'll find a wide variety of patterns, especially in cake and chocolate shops. These patterns are usually printed on edible chocolate transfer paper because they're not suitable for traditional food printing methods. The main reason for this is that chocolate, candy and similar foods have a smooth texture that prevents them from adhering to edible ink. This means that they dry very slowly and are prone to smudging. In addition, for factory owners, manual operation has the shortages of high cost and low delivery rate. So how do you solve this problem?


Currently, our company has created an edible spraying solution that can be sprayed onto the surface of chocolate. This allows us to automate the process of printing on chocolate and collect orders in bulk. We also have chocolate printing solutions available for varying output amounts needed.

A3+ Flatbed Food printer, Edible ink and chocolate coating agent are recommended for printing edible Image Chocolate. The printing process includes the following four steps.

Step 1: Pour Chocolates into moulds
Step 2: Manually spray the Chocoprint Coating Agent
Step 3: Chocolate Printed via A3+ Flatbed Food Printer
Step 4: Butterfly chocolates completed
