Cake of the Month: Peppa Pig Cake by Hilary (February 2012)

March 26, 2012

Our cake of the month for February is this wonderful Peppa Pig Cake. It was made by our volunteer Hilary, who is a member of the MacIntyre Life Long Learning Centre, a day service for adults with learning disabilities.

Hilary baked the cake together with Henrietta, who works at the centre. Hilary is volunteering for Free Cakes for Kids Oxford under the Experience Tree Project:

The Experience Tree project has been set up to provide the learners that MacIntyre support in Oxfordshire with meaningful learning experiences; helping them to gain new skills, grow in confidence and partake in a valuable learning experience above and beyond what they may normally experience.

After the cake was handed over to the family, Henrietta wrote: “It went really well thanks – the mother was so appreciative and gave Hilary a card, which really meant a lot to her. It’s been a little stressful but very good fun.” As Henrietta explained later, the stress came mainly about because everyone at the learning centre wanted to participate in baking the cake, and it was hard to convince people to not add their own touches to the decoration.

It is great to see how much fun volunteering for Free Cakes for Kids can be — especially if the result are such fantastic cakes as Hilary’s. If you are thinking about joining our team of bakers, just drop us a line.
