  2. Could you please explain what you mean? My machine shows two temperatures. Tank temperature and chocolate temperature.
  3. 21C-22C room temperature. Im using dark 64% and i have the temp around 31.3C.
  4. Hey guys :) Im having difficulties with my tempering machine. The chocolate is not in temper. Ive made several tests and they all have certain marks on. Im in a hot country so i make sure to have my mould in temper and then i pop them in the fridge to make sure they set properly. Any tips? Something i should be considering? Anything would be of great help!!!!
  5. at pastry girl, yes all are included at curls, yes I have all that calculated and there is no product like ours in the competition so its hard to check but I definitely need to take their prices into account, and many products are more of the simple cookie or brownie which cost very low and they can sell for 3. I cant charge that and need to find more premium clients. My question was how low can you go on your profit but I guess that is up to me. lol I am answering my questions to myself
  6. Hi there, How low can you go on calculating pricing on wedding favours. I use this method which assumes you want a 50% mark up: Cost of item: 4 dollars (100-50)x100 I know its up to me to decide the mark up percentage I use but how low should can you/should you go? Thanks guys E

We need to take some decisions to invest now before the holiday season and want to make sure we are doing the right moves. If we need to pay for this service we don’t have a big budget but will try. We will try to get help to avoid any mistakes and will take a loan for this investment. Look forward to hear from you guys thks

  13. Hello everyone! Id like your advise about freezing bonbons. Lets say i would start to freeze my bonbons now in the summer for Christmas. Would they last for such an extended period of time? Also using natural colouring, would the colour remain as good when i open them up after a couple of months? Would be great to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter Thank you!
