Earlier this month, Oaklands staff hosted a week long bake-off to raise money for Wessex Cancer Trust’s #Cakes4Cancer initiative.
Each day, several members of the team went head-to-head in a bid to win the title of ‘Star Baker’ – with their cakes being judged by the residents and our Head Chef, Dave, on categories including taste, appearance and innovation.
We were even able to host our own tea party with residents on one of the days thanks to the gorgeous early summer weather we were blessed with throughout the week.
From a two-tier chocolate aero cake to an impressive Battenberg-inspired house, the bar was set extremely high this year. However, in the end it was Ashleigh who was crowned winner with her classic Victoria sponge, with a Wessex Trust inspired design.
Overall £50 was raised for Wessex Cancer Trust and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who got involved. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!
