Dekoback is 2018 one of the strongest sellers in the cake decoration segment in Germany. The company has established itself as a leading provider of cake decorations for food retailers and drugstores with a blend of trendy packaging, exciting product innovations, social media campaigns and high-reach partnerships, including Sally the food blogging star. The market segment grew by approx. € 1.4 million in 2018 compared to the previous year. Around € 1 million of the increase in sales was generated by Dekoback. This figure corresponds to 72% of the increase. The “Decocino” baking brand has made this recently founded company a strong seller in the sector.
Dekoback GmbH was founded in 2009 as a trading platform dealing solely with non-food baking goods. During 2012 the company began to specialise in the development and sale of edible and non-edible decorations for baked goods. Online trading with non-food baking articles has been suspended in the meantime.
Dekoback´s own “Decocino” brand focusses on baking decorations and ingredients developed by our own specialists. Edible butterflies, flowers, unicorns, teddy bears & co., sugar pearls and sprinkles, muffin and cake discs, rolling fondant and food colouring pastes have been developed to appeal strongly to a target group enjoying creative, customised baking. Baking items based on famous films such as Star Wars and Frozen are also part of the range, as are new, smart versions of traditional additives such as vanilla extract, non-stick baking spray and food adhesives.
Dekoback home baking products are sold to customers under the brand name “Decocino” primarily through domestic and foreign trading partners in the stationary food retailing business. The organic baking brand “caBIOke” has also been on the market since 2016. Decocino products can be purchased in many retail outlets in German speaking countries, including Edeka, Globus, Kaufland, Markant, Migros, Mueller, Penny, Real and Rewe. The products are sold at around 30,000 outlets worldwide.

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.
