Whilst visiting Glyn Rhosyn recently, we were greeted with the most wonderful smell of baking!

The residents had been busy in the Activities Kitchen baking chocolate and Victoria sponge cakes. They decorated the cakes with jam, cream and marshmallows, and finished them off with a dusting of icing sugar.

Baking is such a simple and fulfilling activity which can be hugely advantageous for improving mental health. The residents often gain satisfaction from taking part in this activity and seeing the end results.. and of course from eating their lovely baked cakes afterwards!
