Fondant & Fudge

Soft confectionery production for crèmes & fudge

Fondant & Fudge Typical Production Line

Process - Fondant

Weighs and mixes up to 16 dry and liquid confectionery ingredients into a homogeneous slurry. Individual ingredients are fed via a weigh hopper into the mixer and mixed during the fill cycle to produce a consistent slurry. Batches are fed from the Autofeed mixing tank to two reservoir tanks to facilitate a continuous feed to the cooker.

Fondant & Fondant Crème Preparation

Agitation in a fondant beater leads to crystallisation of the sugar for fine fondant. The syrup produced for the base fondant continues to secondary processing to form a liquid confectionery crème with fine crystals, which passes to an optional ServoForm™ depositor.

Baker Perkins’ fondant production systems provide complete cooking and depositing for the continuous production of fondant and fondant crème, which can be used in a variety of soft confectionery products such as enrobed jellies and chocolate-coated crèmes.

Individual to bulk production

Individual fondants can be produced in a range of colours, flavours and shapes, and can incorporate centre fillings such as nuts, jelly, fruit pieces and liquids. Base fondant can also be produced in bulk as an ingredient for bakers and confectioners.

Improved product quality 

Product quality is improved through a more consistent shape: depositing brings the flexibility of making a variety of shapes, colours and flavours simultaneously. The regimented discharge from the depositor enables a direct link to the enrober for output that is chocolate coated.

Flexibility and process control

Use of the fondant preparation system alongside Baker Perkins’ ServoForm™ depositor provides great flexibility and process control. Compared with traditional forming processes, space and labour requirements and cost are reduced, while hygiene and safety are improved. Production cycles are cut considerably.
