Cupcakes and cuppas

There’s always something special about a cake and a cuppa with friends, but residents at our St Catherine’s nursing home in Newcastle have enjoyed making their coffee morning extra special.

Taking delicious, but very plain, cupcakes, our residents dipped into a selection of pretty icing decorations to create their own bespoke cake to enjoy with their cuppa.

“It’s such an easy thing to do,” said Mary, “but it looks lovely when you see all the cakes set out together with all the different designs.”

And we can see there was definitely a cake with your name on, Mary – or your initial, at least.
