Bakery Trends and Treats for 2016
There’s no doubt about it—the bakery industry is a delectable
one. In-store bakeries alone are predicting a 22% increase in sales from 2015 to
2020. That’s a whopping $18.4 billion in just five short years. What’s more, 56%
of retailers view their bakery as a prime destination for shoppers and a key
differentiator from the competition. Even convenience stores are exploring
expanding their fresh bakery line or adding an in-store bakery of their own.
Bottom line: “Baking will be big in 2016.” According to a recent Food
Network® blog post, “while dessert never went away, sweet baking is more
popular than ever.”
Be on the look out for this and other bakery trends.
spice and everything nice: Desserts with some added spice are popping up on
menus in upscale restaurants nationwide; think chipotle-infused brownies or
jalapeno cheesecake ice cream.  , 
like art; tastes like dessert: Take one look at social sites Pinterest® and
Instagram® and you’ll see what we mean by “dessert art.” From cakes that resemble
or the Leaning
Tower of Pisa,
to cream puff swans and chocolate bowls—desserts are a sight to be seen. Consider
wrappers and lotus cups
as you turn your sweet treats into fine works of art.
but goodies: Oldies such as chocolate éclairs and shortbread are predicted
to make a comeback—but with a modern twist. For instance, éclairs filled with
maple mascarpone or goat cheese, or shortbread infused with green tea or
holders and fluted
bake cups allow these mouth-watering desserts to melt in you mouth and not
in your customers’ hands.
tapas: Tiny desserts, such as cake pops or mini pies will continue to take. 
After all, who wants just one dessert? Arrange a variety of desert tapas on lace doilies
for a perfect presentation.
back: Say sayonara to low carb—“the era of good bread is upon us.” After
all, bakeries aren’t just for sweet treats. From fresh breads made with ancient
grains, to fancy toasts, tartines and flatbreads, consumers are again indulging
in this once forbidden food.,
The bakery industry will flourish with flavor in 2016. What
bakery trends are you seeing pop up? So, will you be adding any trending tasty
treats to your product line?

Re: What’s on The Rise in The Bakery Industry?
As for what kinds of baked products will continue to make a strong showing, Report Linker says to expect more healthful baked offerings in the future that do not contain trans fats or as many additives. Gluten free products tailored to those with grain sensitivities will also be on the rise.
