Those Clear Wrappers for selling Individual Cake Slices

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have googled and schmoogled from this way to China and I can't , for the life of me locate (or even find the exact name) those clear cellophane type wraps for individual slices of cake.

 

I see them in some upscale bakeries that sell slices of cake.  The cake has been pre-cut and each slice has some sort of food grade clear plastic wrap on both cut sides, protecting it from drying out (Lord only knows what chemicals are in those sliced cakes at Starbucks that are never wrapped and seem to always stay mysteriously chemically moist).

 

Some of the "cake slice wrappers" I have seen are simply clear and others have been printed with company logos, or designs.   Clear is just fine for us - we are simply trying to keep a pre cut slice of cake from being dry, yet not taking away from its appearance in the display case.

 

Does anyone know what those wrappers are called and/or where to order them?

Yes, it's called acetate strips and you can buy them pre-cut and or on rolls in various sizes. You have to insert them into each slice yourself unless you buy the thousands of dollars cake slicing machine that does that. Look up www.jbprince.com I've bought that there before.

The cakes at Starbucks dry out pretty quick, I've certainly had my fair share of dry ones anyway!

You can't put unwrapped product into a refrigerated case..........the fans in those cases dry product out in an hour. It's really the coolers, not the product (usually).

 

Another thing I used to do was put product in self-sealing clear acetate bags. They look very clean and neat, are easy to handle and most important they really protect your product.

Thank you again Stitches! 

 

For now the strips are exactly what we are looking for, specifically for being able to offer slices of cake that are still beautifully presented, and keeping the exposed sliced sides fresh.

Glad I could help.

I meant more that they don't put chemicals in as the OP was suggesting, Starbucks is one of the few places that tries to be aware of what goes into it's products.

Kuya, I buy acetate at my local arts supply store and they cut it for me.

Shop out your pricing, because I believe the art stores sell it for way more $$ then food supply companies do.
