Get a Youngcake for Christmas

Celebrity Chef and Youngcare ambassador Ben O’Donoghue is cooking up a storm this Christmas to help young Aussies with high care needs.   Ben and Bronwyn – a resident at Youngcare’s first apartments at Sinnamon Park, Brisbane – have baked her Dad’s family recipe and created the Youngcake, a delicious blonde Christmas cake. 
Watch Ben and Bronwyn in action:
For a young person with high care needs, the loss of choice and independence is one of the hardest things to deal with. Over 7,000 young Australians living in aged care are faced with this problem every day.
This Christmas, you can give the gift of choice back to these young Aussies, by sending your friends, family, clients or staff a Youngcare Youngcake – a Christmas cake for young people, by young people.
In packs designed to share, these unique limited edition Christmas cakes have been made, alongside Ben and Bronwyn, by Vanilla Pod bakery, with the pack designed by award-winning artist Michael Zavros.
Youngcakes are available for purchase at Ben’s Billykart Kitchen in West End or Annerley from Friday 20th November, or online now via
All funds raised go to Youngcare to build accommodation solutions and provide grants for young people who would otherwise be living in aged care.
So, go on, mix things up this Christmas. Give someone a Youngcake!
