About the Good Cake
A plan to help the elderly
In a youth-centric city, the elderly community, particularly those living in poverty are overlooked, neglected and quite honestly forgotten. Cardboard grannies are almost the only way one witnesses the plight this very marginalised group of seniors are in. While NGOs extend their efforts to alleviate the problem, merely a fraction of the elderly benefit from their works because it is simply a problem too abysmal for the private sector to solve.
Bake-off! UNderstanding the product
The Good Cake aspires to create delicious treats, lovingly baked by primarily old-folks-in-need in Hong Kong, with an aspiration to provide a steady source of income for this under-privileged community.
A portion of our sales now go to providing for this community.

Hello, I'm Karen
I dedicate my work to my beloved Mama (grandma) and Yeye (grandpa), the stars are different without you.
I have returned to Hong Kong about 3 years ago and cannot help but feel a strong calling to be involved in the elderly poverty problem locally. I read that what is done in love will be done well, and I hope to show this community love, that they are not forgotten, and importantly God is with them, that He will guide the steps of the righteous.
I pray for the success of The Good Cake everyday - for in its success, seniors in the city will benefit.
As The Good Cake evolves, this website documents The journey.
