Recently, we decided to take part in an interdepartmental bake-off competition to raise awareness for the charity Help for Heroes.
Each staff department made a military-themed cake. They were then scrutinised and judged by the residents. After the winners were announced and rewarded with a certificate everyone tucked into the cakes.
We had a variety of cakes on display, including lemon drizzle fighter jets. Maggie, the Manager at Parklands, had effectively made her fondant icing in camouflage colours.
The 1st prize was awarded to the Housekeeping team for their cake topped with an edible teddy bear wearing uniform. They even adorned the cake with military medals that their relatives had been awarded.
It was an enjoyable day.
