Cake'n Bake Factory




Earlier this week my friend who works at KHC asked me if I want to tour the Cake'n Bake Factory and of course I couldn't say no. The company welcomes schools to the factory usually and show them how things are done but from now and then they give tours to their own staff and their families .
The visit was scheduled for Saturday and when I woke up in the morning I was in for a surprise , another sand storm , but the tour went on time ilhamdulillah. 

We arrived to the factory at around 9:20

A cat was sitting next to the door trying to shelter itself from the storm


Before we started we had to cover our hair

 First stop the Cake Making:

Snicker Cakes in the making

Chef Olivier ( with the red cap ) explains how its done

The cakes are sprayed with simple syrup

Second stop , the Arabian sweets:

Explaining how Baqlawa is made

the dough is rolled out into paper thin slices

Pressed to make them bigger around a meter wide



Notice how big it got after pressing



Forth section was the chocolate making and wrapping section:
