A 15-YEAR-OLD baker treated Merseyside care home staff to a batch of cupcakes – because “more than anything they deserve a treat”.
Luis Thomas Eden, a pupil at Halewood Academy, in Halewood, donated the delicious treats to Aaron Grange Care Home, on Blacklow Brow, in Huyton.
Several boxes of cupcakes topped with frosting, chunks of chocolate bars and sprinkles were given to those working at the home.
Luis has baked for years as a hobby before launching his own business, Luis’ Kitchen, and selling his creations through his social media channels.
One regular customer, Laura Mills, is a senior healthcare assistant at Aaron Grange Care Home, so Luis approached her with the cupcake offer.
He said: “I have always baked as a hobby with my family – mainly my nan, mum and auntie – but then I wanted to start creating something for everyone else.
“I launched my Instagram account, @luiskitchen_, in January 2018, where I wanted to showcase some of my bakes, which soon became a business.
“I wanted to send the cakes over to Aaron Grange Care Home because I made Laura, who is a regular customer, a brand rep.
“I feel care homes more than anything deserve a treat and I knew she would help get them to her colleagues.”
Sarah Davies, home manager at Aaron Grange Care Home, said: “Everyone at Aaron Grange is very grateful for the thoughtful and delicious donation from Luis.
“Luis kindly baked these tasty treats for the staff to enjoy while working to look after our residents and to show his appreciation for all the love and care the staff give to the residents, not only under these unprecedented times but always.
“Thank you so much to Luis from all the staff at the home.”
