How to use them

Cake collaring is a simple technique that has been developed by bakers over the years to ensure each layer of the cake stays in position whilst it is assembled. It is particularly useful for jam or cream-filled cakes as these gooey fillings can spill over the sides of the sponge creating a messy, careless appearance. By using a cake collar, both the sponge and fillings are bonded together with a smooth edge finish.

At the end of 2021, independent home baking businesses rose by 157% and has been the fastest-growing trade throughout the pandemic. In order to build a great reputation and encourage repeat custom, you need to set your standards high.

With the demand ever-increasing, you need a packaging company you can rely on. Norman Knights can help you exceed industry standards and keep your customers wanting more.

Printability

Rayoart CG can be printed using traditional flexographic, gravure, silkscreen & letterpress processes. However, we can provide custom ink levels depending on the saturation required for your desired logo, images or pattern. You may also choose to enhance the quality of your cake collaring further with corona treatment.

Premium Surface Treatment

Corona treatment will develop the surface energy of the Rayoart CG by using an electrode system to distribute a high voltage discharge to the surface of the material. As a result, inks will bond strongly to the surface, improving the print quality for optimal performance.

Conversion

Rayoart CG consists of a balanced biaxial oriented polypropylene film which allows for high-speed conversion throughout lamination and printing. Most importantly, this feature will help prolong the life of the ink.
