During 69 years of business, bakery ingredient manufacturer KELMY has gone through many evolutionary changes and continues to do so, with the launch of a new corporate logo introduced in 2019.

Established in 1953 by Antonio Miquel Sirvent, KELMY initially specialised in manufacturing and supplying superior quality products and raw materials to the bakery, confectionery and ice cream industries. Essentially a family-run corporation based in Jijona on the south east coast of Spain. KELMY retains it’s manufacturing traditions, still using centuries-old recipes handed down from generation to generation, running alongside modern manufacturing methods and technological advances.

In recent years KELMY has expanded it’s operations and now also supplies superior quality gluten free (Halal and Kosher certified) products to a constantly growing global audience, who are enjoying the delicious and unique taste that is making KELMY a bakers’ and cake decorators’ favourite!

Discovering Something Special

In 2012 David’s international teaching journey was in full swing as he was being invited to teach at many international cake decorating academies around the world. During a teaching event in taking place at Gaudir Cake Decorating Academy located in the beautiful and historical port city of Dénia located on the Mediterranean coast of eastern Spain, David was contacted by KELMY CEO who requested to participate in the David Cakes free-hand cake decorating experience, creating along side other international students also attending the event.

After meeting members of the ‘KELMY family’ in Dénia and enjoying a most successful cake decorating training event, David flew back home to prepare for his next international teaching adventure.

A few weeks later David received a telephone call from KELMY inviting both David and his technical assistant Edward to return to Spain and attend a meeting at KELMY corporate headquarters located in the beautiful mountains of Jijona – 20 km north of Alicante.

With a complimentary flight tickets from KELMY in hand, David and Edward left Liverpool to embark on a journey that would ultimately take them both on new and exciting cake decorating adventures spanning the globe, for years to come!

A Great Honour

David and Edward were most honoured to spend time in Spain assisting and researching different recipes with the KELMY scientific product development team. After offering many suggestions and ideas which were embraced by KELMY wholeheartedly, the new instant Royal Icing mix went into trial production, ready for evaluation and creative experimentation.

Upon their return to Liverpool, David and Edward received a sample shipment of the new KELMY Royal Icing mix which arrived in Liverpool for approval.

An Unforgettable Moment

David recalls…

“I opened the box and saw the slick vinyl packing containing the Royal Icing mix, I thought WOW this is already a great product!  

Once I opened the bag, there it was! – such a beautiful, free flowing powder, milled so fine so no need to sieve!…

I simply emptied out some powder into a mixing bowl, added water and started up the mixer… WOW!… so smooth, so white and it tasted so natural. KELMY Royal Icing is gluten free and carries a Halal and Kosher certification. 

My biggest thrill was that I was able to mix the Royal icing on a fast speed and it still piped through a No.1 piping tip without a single strand breaking. This is going to be wonderful for extreme piping, complex string work and so much more!”

Let The Piping Begin!

In order to create a global awareness about the benefits of creating with their superior quality Royal Icing, KELMY invited David and his technical assistant Edward to join them for an ongoing adventure.
