To celebrate those special ones in our lives who’d made the national lockdown a little easier, we staged a remote cake-baking event in August 2020.
Using the hashtag #Cake4Caring, we encouraged people on our social media accounts to bake a cake from home for their special person.
Once done, they had to upload a picture of themselves with the finished cake – whilst nominating who they were giving it to and why.
The weekend of baking saw Ozlem record two video demonstrations for members to follow if they didn’t know what kind of cake they wanted to bake.
But the most touching part was seeing who the cakes were made for, which included little granddaughters and separately partners who’d performed errands for their loved ones whilst they’d been shielding from the coronavirus. Upwards of 30 people took part.
And the following week a collage of images of everyone’s cakes was pieced together.
