The Making Of The Royal Cake
Friday, 10 June 2016
Cook and residents at Castle Gait Manor making a cake fit for a queen.
What a royally spiffing time the residents and our Cook, Cathy has been having here at the Manor over the last few weeks. All homes were given the task of making and designing their very own Birthday cake fit for the Queen. Everyone put their heads together and decided the Queen's Corgi should be the star of the Cake, and take centre stage on top of the tiers, which would be royal purple pillows.
Residents assisted Cathy with weighing out the ingredients and they had the very important task of mixing out the cake batter; they were thrilled when they got to lick the spoon too! Our residents here at the Manor spent several afternoons assisting with the cake preparations and appeared to really enjoy this.
The cake is made up of three tiers, as mentioned these have been designed to look like pillows which the Corgi has plumped himself on top of, we think you would agree he does look very comfy! Each cushion of the cake is a different flavour, Queen Victoria Sponge, Indulgent Chocolate sponge and lastly, a luxury Marble sponge.
Cathy has spared no detail in the making and construction of the cake and has worked extremely hard and put in lots of effort into the planning, baking, decorating and not to mention the construction of the cake, which you will see from our photos. We are sure the cake will taste every bit as good as it looks, and everyone is really excited to tuck into it over the weekend at the Queen's Street Party that has been organised here at EWM, which includes a Vintage chip tea!
