And the winner is….
The Christmas cake competition came to its climax this Tuesday. The cakes were baked and decorated by the residents of each of our care homes and were judged for both taste and decoration. The standard was high and winning is definitely getting harder and harder each year.
Our panel of three expert judges from the head office cake addicts, deliberated long and hard before awarding 1st prize for taste to Aspen Court Dementia Nursing Home, Cedar Lodge Residential Home and La Fontana Dementia Nursing Home cakes came second and third respectively and surely they’ll be determined to take top spot next year.
The best decorated cake, as voted for by all the home managers and via the company’s Facebook page was 1st Serenita ARBD Home, 2nd Clarence Park Nursing Home and joint 3rd Vane Hill ARBD Home and Stuart House Dementia Nursing Home.
Prizes were chosen to complement activities within the homes, such as a peddle machine to help circulation and strengthen leg muscles which aids mobility. Fitness video for older people whilst other prizes included board games and quizzes.
A massive well done and many thanks to all our residents for their contribution to some brilliant baking, our cake addicts are already looking forward to next year’s competition, which looks set to be even harder.
