Established since 1953, Spanish bakery ingredient and traditional ice cream manufacturer Kelmy flew David to their headquarters in Jijona
David was given a grand tour of Kelmy’s state of the art manufacturing facility where he discovered that Kelmy still use traditional recipes
during the manufacture of products, holding on to their cultural past while embracing modern technological production methods
After offering Kelmy many suggestions and ideas which were embraced by Kelmy wholeheartedly, David was most honoured to spend time in Spain assisting Kelmy with the development of a new instant Royal Icing mix.
Upon his return to Liverpool, David received a sample shipment of Kelmy Royal Icing which arrived in Liverpool for his approval.
“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 – because it is ! – 100% natural ingredients. 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!”
With their new Royal Icing product ready for distribution Kelmy addressed marketing
In order to create a global awareness about the benefits of creating with NEW Kelmy Superior Royal Icing, Kelmy invited David and his assistant Edward to join them for an ongoing adventure – travelling to corporate trade shows and bakery expo events in UK, Europe, USA and Asia – promoting the Kelmy brand and exciting range of Kelmy cake decorating products available to both hobbyists and professional cake decorators alike.
Kelmy continues to showcase it’s Royal Icing to a captivated global audience as David is challenged to push his creative boundaries literally higher and higher!
Having piped hundreds of metres of Royal Icing free-hand, David continues to enjoy live piping challenges and live demonstrations while encouraging audience participation.
