Through its Outreach Program, Mizpeh seeks to positively impact persons in the community by furnishing them with useful skills so they can be self-supporting. Short courses are hosted as often as there is adequate participation.
One of these programs is its cake-making course that is open to residents of Sangre Grande, free of charge, at Mizpeh’s own Facility Centre. Raphael Medina, owner of ‘Your Cake and More’, volunteers to tutor the course. It is held for three consecutive Saturdays, at the end of which students are given Certificates of Participation. Participants learn both basic and complex recipes, traditional and popular cakes including Christmas fruitcake, cheesecake, black forest and red velvet cakes.
