One-Word Cream Cake for teachers on Vietnam's tradition
Ngo Minh 20:13, 2023/11/20
Teenagers in Hanoi have started the trend of painting a word on cakes for their loved ones.

The campaign "Connection Cake: One Word Cream Cake" campaign is in full swing among the youth of Hanoi on the occasion of Vietnamese Teachers' Day (November 20).

A single word written on the cake would bring forth thousands of stories dedicated to teachers on this special occasion. The campaign aims to strengthen community ties and bring people closer together through delicious cakes.

Participants will record videos of themselves learning to make one-word cakes at Nhat Huong Cake Vocational School, which initiated the campaign, and share the story behind it by posting it on social media channels and inviting the community to join in.

The most suggested words are Tolerance, Honesty, Strict, and Love, as long as they include a story and memory of the participant and his or her teachers.

"Teachers would ask their students why these words once they are presented with the pastry, then they will sit down and talk about memories together," he said.

Nguyen Ngoc Long, media advisor of the campaign, revealed: "The cake bridges community ties in the current hectic life. I know there are some students who cannot make the cake themselves and have to ask for help, but when they come up with the word and write it on the cake, they get emotional. A short word begins a long story, and that is how we open our hearts to each other.

Long said that after the "One Word Cream Cake," the "Connection Cake" campaign will continue on Christmas, Lunar New Year, Valentine's Day, International Women's Day and other occasions to bring people closer together.

The campaign's goodwill ambassador is Vietnamese television presenter Tran Manh Khang, and its social media ambassadors are 20 young people.

Khang has been an ambassador for many charity and environmental projects. Khang said he joined the campaign because it has a humane meaning.

Khang confided that he used to be a naughty student and had negative thoughts about his teachers.

"To be where I am today is not only because of my family background, but also because of the support of many teachers. In secondary school I was mischievous and there was a time when I really hated teachers. But she was strict and patient with me," Khang said.

That's why Khang chose the word Khoan Dung (Tolerance) to write on the cake.

Journalist Phuong Minh Le (Hanoi) responded enthusiastically to the campaign. She made a cake with the word On (gratitude) on it.

"Apart from traditional wishes like Happy November 20, I find this campaign very interesting because with just one word, it can say a lot about gratitude to my teachers," said Phuong Minh Le.
