This month’s Clandestine Cake club theme was Art Masterpiece and wow were there some beautiful looking cakes! I arrived at Bar 55 in Camden (one of my favourite cocktail bars in London) and at 6.30 on a Monday it was already buzzing. The fact that cocktails are two for one all night on Mondays was probably a big reason for this! As I knew I was going to be scoffing my face with cake I decided before arriving that I wasn’t going to have alcohol- well that pretty much went out the window! As soon as I saw the others with Mai tai’s, Stawberry daiquiri’s and other delicious looking cocktails I knew I had to get one! Fiona, one of the cake club members ordered a beautiful looking raspberry mojito and despite the 50 times or so I have been to Bar 55 I have never had it so opted for one and it was sweet, refreshing and too easy to drink!
We had a table reserved in bar 55 and although a little cramped we managed to all squeeze on and place all our cakes on the tables. There was a chocolate Salvador dali clock cake from Fiona, Jelena’s humungous beautiful chocolate and vanilla cake, mini cheesecakes from Kasia , a rainbow pound cake from Lisa, an almond Picasso cake from Cat and finally an aboriginal chocolate and mango cake from Kristina.
