Care UK has teamed up with the makers of Stork margarine to run a baking competition across its 123 care homes.
Residents will be invited to create a cake that reflects a decade of their choice from the last 100 years. Their creation will then serve as the centrepiece at a party celebrating their chosen decade.
A panel of judges from both the care home team and Stork will choose three winners, which will be announced in October. All prizes will have a baking theme and will include a selection of bakeware and kitchen equipment.
Care UK’s hotel services manager James Clear and senior chef Andrew Mussett have been instrumental in setting up the celebratory partnership with Upfield Professional, the owners of Stork.
“Many residents will have strong memories of Stork as an ingredient they used either themselves or used in their family,” says Clear. “As well as being great fun, the cake competition will provide the perfect opportunity for residents to take a trip down memory lane as they share reminiscences of this iconic family favourite that we still use every day in our care home kitchens.”
