They are becoming a key part of night-time economy, as younger generations favour socialising with friends enjoying elaborate freak shakes and mocktails over alcoholic beverages.

Dessert parlours are also a firm favourite with families during the day. The ability to customise items provides an interactive experience for children – and the brightly-coloured, vibrantly-flavoured, weird and wonderful creations are certainly an attraction, too.

To keep ahead of the competition, dessert parlours need to innovate. From pancakes and waffles loaded with extravagant ice cream, sauce and topping combinations, to unique flavour fusions in coffee, milkshakes and hot chocolate drinks, operators constantly need to think of something new when it comes to desserts.

Our solutions:

At Whirl, we prioritise convenience and taste so you can concentrate on creativity.

Whirl butter alternatives can help dessert parlours save time and money compared to using butter. Whirl is ambient, has a long shelf life and is fully liquid, so it can easily be poured straight from the bottle with no need to melt or clarify.

Plant-based, dairy-free and suitable for those following a vegan diet, Whirl cream alternatives can be used in multiple ways – hot, cold or frozen, and either whipped, aerated or poured to create dishes and drinks full of flavour.

Menu ideas:

With its rich buttery taste, Whirl butter alternatives are ideal for replacing butter and vegetable oil in your kitchen to make crêpe and pancake batters.

It can also be used to grease crêpe grills and instead of oil in frying pans, to prevent items from sticking, and imparting a rich golden colour and buttery taste.

Offer your dairy-free and vegan customers exciting desserts by creating whipped cream sundaes and topping waffles, crêpes and pancakes with Whirl cream alternatives. Layer with fruit, syrups and other dairy-free toppings.
