A 10-Year-Old Boy In Argentina Went Viral After Posting Pictures Of His Cakes And Other Pastries Online (27 Pics)
Today we’d like for you to read the story of Joaquín Nahuel, who is a 10-year-old child from Argentina. After suffering from burns all over his body, he decided to start making and selling cakes, pies, and even cupcakes to hopefully save enough money to pay for his skin reconstruction surgery.
Joaquín’s story became known a few weeks ago on Instagram, when the young boy posted a publication about his story and some of his work that quickly went viral as people wanted to show their support.
The boy's mother named Raquel said the little boy needs four skin expanders for a facial reconstruction that cost $500 each and are for the face only.
The accident, which left him with 25% of his body burned and evident scars, took place three years ago, when Nahuel and a cousin sprinkled alcohol on some embers, injuring both of them. In the end, the worst injuries fell upon Joaquín’s arms, neck and face.
Boca Juniors players bought 1 cake from the talented Joaquín.
“I was playing with my brother, it was my mother's birthday, we took the alcohol and threw it on the grill and we both caught fire,” he shared on social media.
Joaquín is very inspired when it comes to baking, even though he is still in school. His biggest source of inspiration is his grandfather who taught him how to make pastry and even cakes. He also cooks and distributes muffins, donuts, and mini cakes that he sells as an extra to make more money for his surgeries.
However, a week ago he managed to deliver a cake to Boca Juniors players (a football team in Argentina), and the picture got shared on Twitter with this exact caption:
“I hope you enjoyed it and if not, I promise the next one will be better.”
