Back in the day, your bakery may have been able to survive with just good food alone. However, in this age of social media, you need more than just tasty fare to get the younger generation through your doors. Millennials are just as concerned about how your food looks as they are about what’s in it, so one way to start could be to modernise your current menu offerings.
One cake that can be easily updated is kue cubit (a traditional Indonesian snack that looks like a pancake). Because of its versatility and popularity, it can be easily transformed into a modern-day crowd favourite. Here’s how to do it.
Add various flavours
Be creative by giving your kue cubit interesting new flavours such as red velvet, chocolate, green tea, strawberry, or even savoury ones like beef. Don’t be afraid to think out of the box – many millennials are excited to try new flavours.
Experiment with colours
Making your kue cubit more colourful may also be a great way to attract young diners. They’ll look stunning in photos, which means that it’ll more likely end up on social media, which then generates free publicity for your bakery. Remember to use food-grade dyes, since millennials pay a great deal of attention to food safety and their health.
Try new toppings
Usually, the only kue cubit toppings are chocolate sprinkles. Why not try other various toppings like jam, cheese, fruits, marshmallows, raisins, or even shredded meat? Make sure that the toppings complement the new kue cubit colours you’re trying out!
Kue cubit can be served in interesting ways such as on ceramic plates, hot plates, or even a traditional-wooden cutting board. To make your presentation more attractive, add garnishes like fruit or syrup on the side. Try it out and make your kue cubit irresistible to millennials!
