NDP 2020 Celebrations with the Seniors : Birthday cakes
Today (19 August 2020) marks the last batch of the 10-kg cakes that BITC undertook to bake for 24 homes and community hospitals with a total of 6404 seniors.
For the National Day this year to celebrate Singapore’s 55th birthday, our team at the BITC undertook to bake a 10kg cake for each of the 24 nursing homes and community hospitals in Singapore. We know that, in the midst of this Covid-19 pandemic, the seniors in these homes may feel isolated and neglected because of restrictions to visits by their loved ones as well as volunteers. We hope that this small gesture of ours could go some way in helping these frail seniors to see that they are remembered and recognised for their contributions as our pioneers.
To produce the 24 huge cakes, we have activated the services of 3 of our Chef specialists, management staff and some student volunteers (both local and international). The team has given careful consideration on the types of cake that these seniors would enjoy. Each cake required about 4 hours’ baking time in the oven, excluding the mixing, assembly, decorating etc.
We hope that these seniors have enjoy the cakes. We also hope that the cakes have brought them joy and the feeling of belonging as we celebrate our 55th birthday together as a Nation.
