To keep up with annual festive tradition, residents within care homes across The Fremantle Trust made and decorated unique cakes for the Christmas Cake Bake Off.
After the cakes where made within each home across Buckinghamshire, they were transported to Aylesbury nursing home Lewin House where Chef Jude Watts and CEO of The Fremantle Trust Narinder Singh came together with a group of residents to judge. As the tasting and judging began, the event was streamed to all the services who each enjoyed an afternoon style tea.
When it came to deciding the winners in the two categories of ‘Best Decorated/Most Creative’ and ‘Best Taste’, the residents agreed with the judges that it was proving difficult to pick a favourite. Bertie Jackman, 91, commented: “They are all so good that I’m finding it hard to choose!”
Once the decision was made, the homes waited in anticipation as the winners and runner ups were announced by CEO, Narinder Singh, with Chesham Leys winning ‘Best Decorated/Most Creative’ and Lent Rise House winning ‘Best Taste’.
Narinder Singh commented: “It was an absolutely tremendous effort from all of the homes in both looks and in taste. I think this sugar rush will last me for a long time!”
