Residents at Manor House care home in Little Weighton experienced a taste of the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) with a selection of cakes and bakes in celebration of the show’s return to TV screens.
The home, on White Gap Road, held the GBBO themed afternoon with bakes whipped up/provided by the care home’s staff such as scones, pastries and cakes.
Although GBBO’s judge Paul Hollywood wasn’t present, residents didn’t fail to step into his shoes and sift through the bakes looking out for soggy bottoms and flaky pastry in the battle of the star baker.
Residents indulged in the tasty treats and offered their opinion to the bakers amongst the staff.
Michael Jackson, 84, resident at Manor House care home, said: “I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of baking as I knew I’d be able to try the goodies afterwards.
“We’ve been truly spoilt with such a delicious variety of cakes. I love watching the Great British Bake Off and it’s wonderful to take part and have our own version of the show at the home. It’s been entertaining playing judge too.”
Leanne Hatch, home manager at Manor House care home, said: “We have many fans of the Great British Bake off at Manor House and it’s always so mouth-watering to watch that we thought what better way to kick off the season with our own competition.
“The staff have enjoyed taking part and getting a few tips of improvement from our wonderful judges. It’s brought back lots of memories for our residents of cakes they used to make which has been lovely to hear.”
