Clandestine Cake Club – Sweets For My Sweet

This post was written as Please excuse any wonky formatting. Visit the homepage for the latest, shiny new content.

The more I go to Bolton’s Clandestine Cake Club the more there is to love- great people, baking camaraderie and, of course, cake.

We met at Suzanna’s in Blackrod; a really lovely place with friendly and helpful staff which I must go back to for food soon.

This month, organiser Rachel set us the theme sweets for my sweet and my fellow club members went all out.

And what a lovely bunch. When I arrived my cake had bumped around in the car and bits had fallen off. Like true cakey comrades, about five ladies came to my assistance- and it was back in one piece in no time.

These were seriously good cakes and all so different: liquorice and sherbet, pear drop bundt, fruit salad sponge, a giant walnut whip, strawberry jelly (jelly. In a cake. Weird but works!), liquorice allsorts, honey, lemon sherbet. Just listing them is making my mouth water all over again.

My cake was poetically called ‘an explosion on the Woolies pick n mix counter’! You can see all about it here.

At a guess I would say that there were easily over 20 cakes, but I was so busy gabbing that I didn’t eat half as much as I normally do. On the up side, this meant that there was no sugar head ache when I got home!

Next month the theme is Americana- I am already trying to come up with something. But, and I know I always say this, this was definitely the best month so far!
