Baking a cake in Uganda

Ugandan parents demonstrate how they bake cakes using hot ash.

Pride and joy in their accomplishment are clear on the faces of these Ugandan parents. They are part of a small group working through Unbound to sell cakes to support their families. They are one of the many parents groups around the world that have started sustainable livelihood projects with assistance and encouragement from Unbound.

But for these parents, baking cakes isn’t as simple as getting out the mixer and preheating the oven. Watch this short video to see how they made this delicious bakery product.
