|Working on decoration of the cake|
December 3, 2012
With Christmas near at hand, the Kochi East Lions Club invited the Deaf persons in Kagawa Prefecture, a part of western Japan, on December 2. They enjoyed making a cake together with volunteers who interpreted in sign language.
This event has been held since 1985 every year. Over 60 persons, including about 30 Deaf persons aged 3-77, participated this year.
Divided into five groups, they put the whipped cream on the top of the sponge baked beforehand, and decorated it with strawberries and pieces of pineapple in order, which ended in the richly colorful decorated cake.
One of the Deaf participants aged 58 seemed to be satisfied, saying, "We were able to make the cake happily, helping each other all together. I am excited to bring this home and eat with my family."
