Care Home Residents Follow the Breadcrumbs to Gingerbread House

Inspiring their imaginations, ladies and gentlemen at Upton Bay Care Home in Poole delved into a colourful array of tongue tingling treats to decorate their scrumptious gingerbread houses, as entry for Barchester Healthcare’s Gingerbread House Competition.

Influenced by a live virtual cookery demonstration hosted by Vegetarian for Life, the leading authority on diet and healthy living advice for older vegans and vegetarians, the care home crafted two gingerbread house structures ready for titivating with candies and chocolates.

“We opted for a mini winter wonderland village as our competition entry, showcasing not one, but two beautifully decorated houses set within a snowy landscape!” commented Karen Grant, Activity Coordinator at Upton Bay

“Our residents were so inspired by the live demonstration, we borrowed techniques from Chef Alex such as proper sugar icing adhesive and installing lights to really bring the scene to life.”

“My favourite aspect of our creation is Rudolph sat proudly on top of hid abode!” said David, resident at Upton Bay.
