The new bespoke bakery is home to a set of Harmony Modular Deck Ovens
The lovely Cake Boulevard is one of the latest openings in the bespoke cake bakeries in England. Based in Seven Kings, Ilford, Essex, the owner Kiran Mandalia and Chris Huish, Director of Independent Sales of Mono, talk to us about their experience.
Kiran Mandalia left her corporate job to follow her dream into the creative cake business and today Cake Boulevard is thriving.
"Before choosing my ovens, I did a lot of research. Mono Equipment was my ultimate choice of suppliers as they are based in the UK and all their products are British made as well as them having a reputation for supplying high quality reliable equipment," says Kiran Mandalia. "It took me quite a while to find the right location and during that time Mono assisted me in every way possible. I was taken to a working bakery to watch the ovens perform and see the results, I was given advice as to how to adjust my recipes for the deck ovens. Rick Murray, Mono's Sale Executive, was great and accompanied me every step of the way of changing my home bakery to a professional location and equipment."
Three Harmony Deck Ovens by Mono were installed in the new location. "The bake is incredible and I can get all my bakes done in an hour. The ovens are incredibly easy to use and to program. Time is such an important factor in our business and everything we make is bespoke," continues Kiran.
All the decks are independent and are individually programmable. The stand-by function allows you to save energy yet come to temperature quickly. “The 24/7 programmable feature is also something that is widely used. Being able to come in and find the right number of ovens on and to temperature is a time-saving feature that is greatly appreciated“, says Chris Huish. "These deck ovens are designed to be installed quickly and easily. Once they are installed, our staff is on-site to train personnel and to do any trouble-shooting necessary. We also have one person running each project. It makes it much easier for the customer to have one point of contact. In this case it was Rick Murray who ran the project and liased with us for any questions Kiran had,” adds Chris.
Renowned for its reliability, consistency and mellow bake, the Harmony Modular Deck Oven is the preferred choice of independent artisan bakers and the very best 5-star restaurants and hotels in the UK and overseas.
