National Chocolate Cake Day – What’s Not to Love?

Staff and residents at Barchester’s Austen House care home in Lower Earley, Reading had a fantastic time celebrating National Chocolate Cake Day on January 27th, surely one of the best days of the year!

Overseen by head chef Ainsworth Brown, staff and residents whipped up a selection of different chocolate cakes from chocolate logs to cupcakes, chocolate fudge cake and even a Mississippi mud pie. Once they had cooled, everyone enjoyed tasting them. We had a fabulous day and more importantly we had a good excuse to eat chocolate all day long.

General Manager, Seva Hashimova, said:
“It wasn’t just the residents that were excited when we found out there was a National Chocolate Cake Day, the eyes of all our staff lit up too – everyone loves chocolate cake and even better when there is a good excuse to eat it!”

Katherine, a resident said:
“I have always loved baking, it is so rewarding when a cake turns out well and chocolate cake has always been a family favourite. I have eaten so much delicious chocolate cake today, I think this has to be one of my favourite celebrations.”
