A cake baking competition was held this week at our Devon Nursing Home, Edenmore for everyone to show off their culinary skills. Those who live in the home made the cakes with a little help and advice from those that live there. The competition was judged by Liz Thompson, the home’s manager, and the winner was Mary’s delicious chocolate orange sponge. There were all kinds of other entries, from a rich chocolate and cherry cake to the classic Victoria sponge.

Liz commented “making cakes is a popular past time for virtually everyone who lives in the home. Many good stories were shared of individuals baking with their parents or even their own children. We were all very keen to see this continue when they’ve moved into their new home, so decided to have a friendly competition. We were definitely all winners in the end as we all got to enjoy some delicious homemade cakes!
