We are delighted to announce that the Jubilee desserts created by our St Winifreds Care Home residents and staff teams have won second place in Nellsar’s ‘Design a Jubilee Dessert’ competition!
As part of our recent Platinum Jubilee celebrations, we entered a fun competition running across all Nellsar’s 13 Homes, to see who could create the most magnificent Jubilee dessert, fit for a Queen!
We challenged our Recreation and Well-Being Team and Chefs to collaborate with our residents to reminisce about favourite puddings they’ve enjoyed in the past and come up with something special for the Jubilee long weekend.
Viv Stead, Nellsar’s Recreation and Well-Being Manager and Head of Catering Services Adrian Silaghi had great pleasure in judging the entries on Friday 10 June.
Their three judging criteria were:
- Creativity – How well the Jubilee theme had been executed.
- Collaboration – How well our staff teams had worked together and included their residents.
- Presentation – How eye-catching and well-presented the desserts looked.
Our two magnificent desserts caught the judges’ eye:
“A fantastic resident-led Tiered Jubilee Cake with lovely detailing and a wonderful quality Jubilee Trifle with themed colours and decoration – both fit the royal standard! A great team effort and their residents were involved from start to finish with their magnificent cake. Their stunning Sherry Trifle was very artistic! Well done!”
We are thrilled to have won £100 for our Residents’ Fund – and of course enjoyed devouring both of our desserts over the long Jubilee weekend! Well done to everyone involved!
Sonya Lodge Residential Care Home scooped first prize with a delicious selection of six desserts, whilst Princess Christian Care Home came in third place with their Rocky Road treats, chocolate lava cake and Victoria sponge in glass. Yum!
