One shop which has had a huge response to its Royal Wedding campaign is O’Caykx in Aberdeen’s city centre.
The business, which specialises in making celebration cakes, launched a campaign on its Facebook page pledging to give five care homes a wedding cake to mark the occasion.
Thousands responded and nominated their chosen care home, with votes coming in for more than 180 homes.
Oyin Adekola, the owner of O’Caykx, said: “We were thinking about what we could do to celebrate the royal wedding and I loved the idea of giving away five cakes to care homes.
“I didn’t expect this reaction at all and for it to get so big. I’m delighted with the response to the com-petition and how it has taken off.
“When I saw how much impact it had, I knew we had to give away some really special wedding cakes – I really had to up the stakes.
“I’ve been hard at work to make the cakes something special – we’ve just finished them now so we can relax a little bit.”
The lucky winners were Ythanvale Care Home in Ellon, Lethan Park Care Home in Portlethen, Haven Court Care Home in Stonehaven, Fergus Care Home in Dyce and Jesmond Care Home in Bridge of Don.
Melanie Thomson, an admin care support assistant at Ythanvale Care Home, said: “We are holding a big party for the royal wedding with the residents.
“When we won one of the cakes from O’Caykx we were just delighted.
“We have 30 residents here and they’re looking forward to the day. There’s going to be lots of bunting and Union Jacks.”
