Baking At Your Own Risk

Decocino launches an online video campaign


Reichartshausen, 14.09.2017. Somewhat different to your classic cooking video, Decocino launches a visual campaign with unique and provocative advertising on the subject of baking, with a heavy focus on dialogue with the customer base via social media. ... read more... go back

In the sandpit, on the football field or in the school playground - when it comes to the wellbeing of their children, many parents forget how to have fun. They shout motivation to their children to score a goal in a football game. They boast happily about their children's school achievements as if they were their own. They melt with pride and happiness when their offspring show creativity and uniqueness. No matter how far the apple falls from the tree, or how skewed the achievements are, parents will monitor, comment and document everything their children do - and rarely do they keep that to themselves.

The Plot
Decocino’s spot “Baking At Your Own Risk” takes this parental behaviour to a new level. Let’s get straight to the plot: it’s a beautiful autumn afternoon and two mothers are sitting with their daughters in a sandpit. The children are making sand castles (or better, sand cakes) with the mothers hanging around. Enter a stunningly decorated three-tiered sand cake, crafted skilfully by one of the girls. Without hesitation, the girl’s mother whips out her phone to take a picture. The other mother becomes livid with envy and runs to the cake and destroys it. This seemingly harmless sand cake-scenario turns into a playground nightmare.

Contrast Common Behaviour

“90% of our employees are adults. I myself have two children. We know the sort of typical everyday parental behaviour and we are no exception - indeed, we behave the same way. We of course deliberately exaggerated this behaviour in the spot. No mother is going to trample the sand-creation of her child,” says Rüdiger Settelmeier, one of the owners of the company. “We wanted to use a normal, everyday scenario which is connected with baking, and exaggerate and provoke it. Indeed, this scenario wasn’t about classic baking in a cosy kitchen or in front of a camera, but more provocative and away from the mainstream - that was something we liked!”

Decocino and the Social Medias

This video is the first spot in Decocino’s online video campaign and will air on YouTube and other social media channels from the 20th of September until the 3rd of October.
This campaign will mark a continuation of Decocino’s social media strategy. In 2013, Decocino started collaborating with the YouTube channel “Sally’s World”, which at the time was relatively unknown. Today, Sally is one of Germany’s top food influencers and Europe’s number 2 - with around 12 million viewers each month on YouTube alone. On her channel, Sally exclusively uses Decocino products in decorating her cakes and desserts. From 2017, Sally in collaboration with Decocino released a product line revolving around baking. The business is simultaneously investing further into promoting their digital strategy and in the online video campaign for example, great attention is put into direct dialogue with their customers via social media, thus highlighting their leading position in the industry. According to the DigitasLBi study in 2015 entitled “Connected Commerce”, 32% of social media users choose to buy a product or service based on a referral or recommendation via a social media platform. Furthermore, according to the report “Social Media Atlas 2015/2016” from the Hamburg-based communications and consultancy group Factkontor in collaboration with Toluna, a market research group, over 27% of consumers who were surveyed made purchasing decisions based on advertising across social media platforms.

NEW: Gum paste

Mould flowers and figures like the pros

Decocino’s new gum paste is the ideal product for bakers and pros. It can be rolled very thin without tearing, as well as being extremely easy to work with. A little practice is all it takes to create simple roses, flowers, leaves, letters, numbers, and other small decorative elements. Due to its high elasticity, it is also suitable for artistic floral creations. When mixed with sugar paste in a one-to-one ratio, the result is modelling fondant that can easily transform character ideas into reality. There’s also no limit on colouring options, as Decocino paste offers unlimited dyeing options with our food colouring pastes.

The product has been available in leading specialist stores and grocery stores since March 2017 with an RRP of €3.99.

 

NEW: Cabioke organic label

Organic quality sugar paste


05.04.2017. With its new organic brand, Cabioke, Dekoback now offers the chance to enjoy cake decorating products with organic quality. ... read more... go back

Instead of Grandma’s apple pies, cupcakes and intricately designed tarts are making their way to the tea table more and more. The new style of creative baking is on an upward trend, particularly with a younger audience, and, with its Cabioke organic sugar paste,  Dekoback now offers the chance to enjoy decorative products in organic quality.

The baking market has been in a state of flux for years. Traditional baking products are seeing an ongoing decline in demand: instead, colourful decorations, edible cake toppings and sugar paste are taking over on the supermarket shelves. The new interest in baking has also transformed the target audience, to include many more young bakers, and this transformation is down to the many baking bloggers and YouTubers who share their ideas – and their baking creations – digitally. Baking videos in particular are enjoying massive popularity. Europe’s most successful baking YouTuber is Sally Özcan, and her German-language YouTube channel “Sallys Welt” (“Sally’s World”) has over a million subscribers, with her videos being watched over 15 million times per month.

With such a high level of interest in baking, it’s no wonder that the “creative baking ingredients” segment has also experienced dynamic growth in the retail sector. In 2016, it reported double-digit growth with new, trendy products constantly being launched.

With Cabioke’s organic sugar paste, nutrition-conscious baking enthusiasts can make their creative baking ideas a reality. With Cabioke’s organic sugar paste, nutrition-conscious baking enthusiasts can make their creative baking ideas and try their own versions of the recipes from Sallys Welt and other baking bloggers.

Cabioke sugar paste is easy to work with. It is extremely elastic, which means that it resists tearing and adapts its shape to fit any cake exactly. Cabioke sugar paste is free from palm oil and certified as organic in accordance with the DE-ÖKO 022 standard.

Cabioke organic sugar paste is available from March 2017 in leading specialist stores and grocery stores with an RRP of €3.99.

Decocino edible glue named top innovation 2016


09.02.2017. The edible, easy to use Decocino glue has received the highest score for dry goods at the “2016 Product Innovation Prize” awarded by the Austrian Handelszeitung in the category of “Flour desserts and baking ingredients.” ... read more... go back

Sally is the well-known and highly effective brand spokesperson for Decocino products with over 15 million monthly viewers.
