It goes something like this:
Your commercial kitchen is bustling, yet you have this feeling of impending doom.
You look around for the source of the problem, but everything looks normal.
Then you suddenly realize… your refrigerated display case was making funny noises yesterday. You head over there at a run.
The light is out.
There’s no more funny noise; now it’s deathly quiet.
And your buttercream is drooping and melting like an ice cream cone on a hot day. NOOOOOOO!
