Birthday Cakes by Sweetened Memories

By Sara Nadeau

Carriage Hill Assisted Living has partnered with Sweetened Memories, a local Durham bakery, to decorate a cake each month in recognition of residents celebrating a birthday that month. The cakes are decorated on site in front of residents as one of our activities. Residents are able to witness the steps taken to create the cake, ask questions regarding the process and socialize as the cake takes shape in front of them! This month, the cake was a lighthouse theme and featured the Portland Head Light. It was a shame to cut into this piece of art, but delicious!

We look forward to coming up with the cake’s theme each month to represent those residents celebrating a birthday. It is a pleasure to watch Sweetened Memories co-owner Kathy Shattuck create these beautiful cakes! For more information on Sweetened Memories, visit
