FUNCAKE
MACHINE

Based on the traditional Japanese Manju cake, the Funcake is a unique and attractive 3D product. At the centre of each Funcake is a flavoursome, delicious centre filling. Countless spectacular design variations are possible. The options are unlimited.

FUNCAKE
PRODUCTION

Funcake production process 
Reliable & efficient results - every single time.

We bake the Funcakes in moulds made from solid brass or cast iron. In the mould, a lot of heat is captured. As soon as the batter hits the mould, it begins to bake. The cooking starts even though it has not yet reached the oven.

Before entering the oven, a portion of filling is placed on the batter, the mould is closed and turned to distribute the batter evenly over the mould. Once in the oven, the mould is turned one more time.

In this way, we achieved an evenly coloured cake product, and the filling remains entirely in the centre of the cake before the batter starts to set. In the oven, heat is distributed over the moulds gradually and evenly. Direct gas burners or electrical heaters generate the heat.

Finally, as the moulds leave the oven, they are opened and the Funcakes de-moulded and cooled before packaging. Before the next cycle, the moulds are checked and coated with a releasing agent.

WONDERFUL 
PRODUCTS

Spectacular looks

The mould is closed during baking, allowing leavening agents in the recipe to generate a gentle pressure during baking. The pressure pushes the batter outwards, meaning the contours of the mould are followed accurately. This guarantees a smooth cake surface and allowing even the smallest design details to be seen.

Imagine any shape

Funcakes of any shape can be created. That is because of the unique design process, which uses 3D design tools to sculpt any form into the baking moulds. Swapping moulds is simple, allowing countless combinations of Funcake designs.

Delicious filling

Every bite of a Funcake is full of rich flavour. That is because fillings are applied before baking and follow the contours of the mould, allowing a high filling ratio. In addition to fillings, solid particles can also be added.

FEATURES

Evenly colored cakes, perfectly centered filling

The solid cast iron or brass moulds have excellent heat-retention properties. For this reason, immediately after it is deposited in the moulds, the batter starts cooking. To ensure the batter and filling are distributed evenly, we turn the mould during baking.

Smooth product surfaces; with precise shape

The Funcake machine can run with any number of moulds. Sensors detect the position and temperature of the moulds; the machine only deposits batter if everything is correct. This allows the Funcake machine to run with only a few moulds;  convenient for starting-up, for cleaning during production, or simply for developing new products.

Easy-to-swap baking moulds

Swapping-out baking moulds is effortless. This is because the moulds are not fixed to the machine. Our larger machines feature automatic mould eject and insert functions. Minimise downtime – swap out a complete mould set in under 15 minutes and get back online.

WE CUSTOMIZE THE MACHINE FOR UNIQUE APPLICATIONS

The Manju Fun-Cake is a very attractive three-dimensional cake with filling. Cake Concepts transformed this cake MANJU into the Funcake with super appealing looks. Funcake products are centre filled cakes whit a typical weight ranging from 10-40 gr. The filling portion of the Manju cake can be up to 30-40% of the product weight. The real attraction is the unlimited variation of the shape. Many spectacular designs are possible and the variation in the filling is unlimited.

MANJU

FUN CAKE

Cake Concepts has developed a machine like no other on the market today. Uniqueness is how the Funcake machine applies fillings before baking. This integration of the filling into the product itself is what makes the Funcake such a unique and intensely delicious experience for consumers. By using closed moulds, we can achieve smooth surfaces and sharp graphics not possible with other technologies.
