RESIDENTS FROM SEVEN OF ASHMERE DERBYSHIRE’S CARE HOMES HAVE BEEN BUSY MAKING CHRISTMAS CAKES OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS WHICH WERE ALL ENTERED INTO A COMPETITION AND JUDGED BY HEAD OFFICE STAFF.

The aim of the competition was to get all residents involved in making the cake with little participation from the staff.

Laura Stone, Activity Lead, was delighted to see all the residents taking part in the competition and enjoyed hearing all about the cakes and the ideas behind them.

She said: “It has been fantastic to see the residents getting hands-on with the creation of the cake and from all the feedback we received, all residents enjoyed it as well.

All the team at Head Office judged the cakes under three categories with the winners being:

  • Best taste and overall winner – The Firs
  • Best decoration – Kidsley Grange
  • Best for Resident participation – King William
