WAUKEGAN, ILLINOIS – Nielsen-Massey Vanillas, the world’s leading provider of high-quality fine vanilla extracts and flavor products, today announced its first-ever integrated consumer education campaign dubbed “Better Your Bake.” The campaign features Food Network’s “Challenge” Champion and world-renowned cake designer Marina Sousa, who is partnering with the brand to create a video series designed to help home baking enthusiasts advance their skills and benefit from the mindfulness that comes with the art of baking.
“I am thrilled to partner with Nielsen-Massey for the “Better Your Bake” campaign,” said Sousa. “Creating and baking beautiful cakes has always instilled in me a personal feeling of relaxation and accomplishment. As a novice, many years ago, I remember perfecting basic techniques like whisking and rolling out dough, which brought me a great sense of achievement and happiness. Through this campaign, I hope to share my knowledge with home bakers everywhere, so that they too can gain the benefits of ‘bettering their bake.’”
Beginning today, bakers everywhere can visit BetterYourBake.com to find informative videos outlining basic baking techniques and common myths. They’ll discover Sousa’s answers to common baking questions, collect seasonal recipes, and much more. New videos, tips and recipes will be released each month through September 2019.
“As a third-generation family company, we are passionate about helping people discover the joy that comes from baking at home. It is our hope that consumers can learn that with the right technique – and the finest quality ingredients – they will be able to create something truly awesome that will bring happiness to themselves and those they love,” said Kirk Trofholz, Chief Executive Officer at Nielsen-Massey.
A 2016 study published in The Journal of Positive Psychology suggests that spending time on creative goals such as baking during the day helps people feel more relaxed and happier with their everyday lives.
