Amaru Confections is a premier custom cake and dessert shop located in Boise, Idaho. Certified chef, Aimee received her formal training from the Culinary Arts Institute in Denver, Colorado and from the top chocolatiers in France; at the Lenotre’ Institute, just outside of Paris. In 2000 she opened Amaru Confections in order to create edible works of art for special occasions including weddings, birthdays, baby showers and corporate events.
As they continued to grow, they opened a custom cake shop, retail bakery and gluten free bakery in 2013. One of their many vendors include Whole Foods Market and other local coffee shops and restaurants. The bakery offers freshly baked cupcakes, cakes and cookies. They pride themselves on using non-GMO ingredients from local vendors as much as possible - including free range eggs and unbleached flour. Because of their custom cakes, Amaru Confections has earned their place in the top 5% of Wedding Professionals Nationwide by Wedding Wire and Bride’s Choice Awards.
In 2016, Amaru needed a more proficient Point of Sale system that could handle their custom cake building operations. This proved to be a difficult task since many POS companies don’t provide this option. However, when they discovered Cafe Cartel they found exactly what they needed. CCS comes complete with a custom cake building feature that can price out cake’s tiers from 6" to 18" round and square, and in 2" increments. Next fillings, frostings and decorations can be added to the order. The following video demonstrates this in action:
CCS also includes catering, house accounts and scheduling as well. Take Production as an example: for bakers using CCS, they start their day with an interactive report that lists the items needing to be made that day and what orders the items belong to. In the report summary, employees can see the items that need to be prepped, the orders that need to be readied and the current inventory count. Items without enough stock will appear in red. This summary dictates to the staff what needs to be completed and by what time in a clear and efficient way. Once the order is readied, a time stamp will be applied and a label can be printed for the prepared product as well. Upon completion of the order, the summary will be updated and the order will be ready for pickup/payment at any time.
Additionally, CCS includes features like recipe based inventory, labor scheduling, employee time clock, reconciling and reporting. Cafe Cartel has been helping bakeries succeed since 2004. To review your desired features with an industry consultant, call 866-973-8099 or request a quote today.
