On 02.11. vol­un­ta­ry ap­pren­ti­ces and stu­dents from all ap­pren­ti­ce­ship ye­ars met to bake gin­ger­b­read an­gels for a good cau­se tog­e­ther with the pro­ject choir Schrozberg at the com­pa­ny “Manz Backtechnik”.

The event star­ted at 9:00 a.m. with the goal of baking 1,000 an­gels. Af­ter the group pic­tu­re it went to the dis­tri­bu­ti­on of tasks. In the kit­chen the task was to knead the dough, roll it out, cut out the gin­ger­b­read and bake it af­ter­wards. The rest of the team were re­spon­si­ble for de­co­ra­ting the an­gels, who­se wings were pain­ted with icing su­gar and the face, hat and sher­pe, which con­sis­ted of a mass of egg white, icing su­gar and food co­lou­ring, were attached.

At 11:45 at noon the­re were string sau­sa­ges, boi­led eggs, va­rious spreads and rolls. Ever­yo­ne was sit­ting tog­e­ther in a cozy cir­cle and the at­mo­s­phe­re was good. Af­ter­wards ever­yo­ne went back to their group to work on the angels.

De­s­pi­te the see­min­gly ne­ver-en­ding dough, the at­mo­s­phe­re in the groups was good and you got to know peop­le with whom you have litt­le con­ta­ct in ever­y­day life. Af­ter around 18:00 clock the in­gre­dients for the de­co­ra­ti­on ran out and most an­gels were al­rea­dy pa­cked, many star­ted the de­ser­ved way home and the group shrank. The re­mai­ning ones took care of the rest of the rea­dy to bake an­gels un­til 20:00 o’clock was the end of the day and it was time for the long awai­ted clo­sing time.

To­day we got the news that we ma­na­ged to bake more than 1500 an­gels and thus far ex­cee­ded our goal. We were hap­py that the ex­haus­ting day was worth it.

The an­gels will be sold at lo­cal Christ­mas mar­kets and on 15 No­vem­ber at REWE in Bad Mer­gen­theim. The pro­ceeds will go to the “He­art Sick Child­ren in the Child­ren’s Hos­pi­tal in Tübingen”.

Many thanks to all the hel­pers for this gre­at and suc­cess­ful day!
